Question: my pligg sites are not accepting submissions
Answer: provided by jhawkin 13 days ago
- 0 + From the post you replied to ---> "Why don't you consider doing a backup if you did any customizations and removing everything. Kill the database. Re-install from Softalicious or whatever is there in the Hosting Control Panel and see if your problems go away.".

This is pretty much what I'd do next!

- 1 + Okay... okay. This is getting ridiculous!!!

If you didn't do any customizations and/or don't have anything at all you're afraid to lose in your database or configuration settings then don't bother with the backup!

But I'd do the rest of what I suggested. Kill the whole mess and do a one button install from Softalicious or what ever 'One Button' Installer is provided.

I don't know what else to tell you there.

I do know that the GoDaddy control panels usually have a 'One Button' Installer.

And I do know that they work well!!!

I'm a little amazed that you are hung up on this Backup/No Backup issue when the solution might be right there in the tasks outlined right after that!

Just make sure that your CP offers Pligg 2.0.2 and then do it!!!! That's how it's done here at my shop. I don't hand install anything I don't have to.

- 1 + I think I'll just go ahead and answer this one cause I know it's coming............

You told me your hosting provider is GoDaddy if I remember right.

Call them! Ask them if your hosting account offers an auto installer with Pligg 2.0.2.

If they say, "yes" then ask them to walk you through getting to that and running the installer.

If they say, "no" then ask them how to get Pligg 2.0.2 installed on your hosting account. Tell them you've had trouble getting it to work. Do what they tell you.

- 0 + I visited your sites again. From here it looks like the installs worked but you have some very weird problems.

Are you trying to run multiple Pliggs from a single host account? That's not easy but can be done with the proper GoDaddy hosting accounts. But it almost takes the ability of an network engineer to do this. It gets confusing when one install happens to call the facilities of the other which is what I suspect may be happening there.

My suggestions are:

Call GoDaddy Support again and work with them

Or

It appears you live in Hyderabad. I get emails almost daily about 'Web Professionals' with 'engineering backgrounds' who are in Hyderabad. I think it's time for you to look at hiring one of them.

Else

Do the one hosting account - one Pligg build then revisit this 'Single Hosting Account' setup later.

Question: Site Redirecting to Another Page - just for some users
Answer: provided by jhawkin 27 days ago
- 0 + I looked at your dns and the other site's dns (looking for commonalities) and then tried to pull up the Pligg readme.html. The Pligg Readme is there so I ruled out a dns or server issue.

I then tried Pligg from just the domain name. That works. Add the www and it redirects to the jewelry site. Added www. to the klinkk.com/readme.html that works. Click the home icon on that page and you get the www.domain which then redirects.

This all tells me the problem is probably in the Pligg system somewhere (I still could be wrong). But it only redirects on the www.domain not the domain by itself and only when Pligg is in control. Not when the server by itself is dealing out the pages..

Look at your htaccess (or kill it temporarily) and look at the configuration. Give a look at config.php and settings.php just to see if there were any changes.

I don't think there's any dns or server issues that are causing this but you can't rule anything out completely until this issue is tracked down.

Go into admin and just look at all the posts titles. You're looking for URLs and scripts. I didn't see any but it's a thought.

Let us all know what you found and if you need further help.

- 1 + Looks like you found the problem and fixed it.

That's a great site, I spent some time reading over there yesterday and learned a lot.

I would appreciate you letting us know what you found when you have time.

- 1 + That really is a nice site!!!

Since the problem only appeared on the www domain (and I suspect it may have been a while before you found out) you might want to canonize one or the other names just to help discover problems like this quicker. Be aware that this might cause a few SEO issues and you might want to declare the same canonical name in the meta tags also.

If you do a Cname in DNS be aware that you can't have Cnames in MX records so if your email server is the same as your www domain (rare but it happens) you'll need to do something else.

Question: how change ERROR: already voted 1/-10
Answer: provided by jhawkin 29 days ago
- 0 + Look for 'PLIGG_Visual_Vote_AlreadyVoted' in Lauguages or appropriate Language file in languages directory.

The number refers to the vote to add or remove and the second number refers to the result (I think), This number should probably be suppressed in the code but it's a minor issue.
