Question: Can you do something about this ANONYMOUS SCHMUCK ???
Answer: provided by jhawkin 48 days ago
- 0 + Yeah, that module doesn't need to be 'on' for this site!

That module needs a little attention, too!

Daily limits on anonymous up/down votes via IP.

Permanent blocking of abusers by IP to use the anonymous user.

And maybe total blocking via htaccess though a savvy webmaster should be able to do that himself not everyone feels comfortable or even able to work with in htaccess or httpd.conf!

Question: Auto generate tags
Answer: provided by jhawkin 62 days ago
- -1 + tags and tagging kind of says 'human participation' in some way.

Auto tagging would require some way for the machine to understand what a human might find interesting. And that might be the trending topics but possibly yesterdays or even tomorrows trending topics...... and one guy just wants a 'cheeseburger'! How do you arrive at that?

Question: Auto generate tags
Answer: provided by jhawkin 62 days ago
- -1 + Some further thoughts on tagging - autotagging:

Any posts imported by the RSS module has tags added. I'm thinking Magpie does that.... they are fairly accurate. Maybe that code would be a good place to start looking.

Maybe a 'suggest a tag' module might be a better option.

The length of the tags set is limited in the editor by a setting in the submit section of the configuration. This often trips me up when I edit a RSS imported submission. Not bad enough to warrant a bit of code change right now but I've considered that.

Question: Auto generate tags
Answer: provided by jhawkin 61 days ago
- -1 + I'm just pointing out some considerations and a idea of where a programmer might start looking.

I have no idea on this as I see tagging as a human interaction with Pligg and don't really feel comfortable with having the software develop tags itself.

Question: Auto generate tags
Answer: provided by jhawkin 57 days ago
- -1 + Redwine, that is pretty neat. Can that functionality be extended to the story, title, and tag fields and then added to the current story editor?

Then the selection for multiple tags?

And can it be aware of the total allowed tagline length? Right now if you submit a story (atleast in version 1.2.2) and the tagline is too long submit rejects the whole submission or edit and you have to go back then re-edit the whole thing.

Question: Spam Prevention
Answer: provided by jhawkin 64 days ago
- 0 + You can rename or even delete the register.php file to completely stop registrations but....

You might still want some registrations or you might want to only manually allow registrations which would mean you'll need a form or email address just for registrations. I'll leave that to you.

Some other modules might need the register.php file. The Facebook/twitter login and the 'user bridges' type modules might need it.

Pligg can send a email notice when you create an account manually as the admin.

Here's more on an automatic register.php renaming script. I did play around with this but chose to disallow registrations on some of my sites. I did allow anonymous voting on those.

Question: Spam Prevention
Answer: provided by jhawkin 64 days ago
- -1 + Here's a site running without a working register.php file. I modified the template to only show the normal top login/register form to registered users, then removed the input boxes, and the register link from that.

There is a login option on the menu and the form in the sidebar but if you chose register from the login box you'll get a page with a announcement in it instead of the registration form . Later on I might add a contact form or email address to that. So far that hasn't been a issue!!!

Question: Can put a limit attempt for "password reset", like login process?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 69 days ago
- -1 + Sounds like someone (a hacker or hacker wanna be?) trying to access your site surreptitiously.

Go into your system logs and find their IP address and block them via htacess!

Question: Facelook theme disables links
Answer: provided by jhawkin 74 days ago
- 2 + When you said Wistie I figured you were probably running 1.2.2 which wasn't written with the 'bootstrap' themes in mind!!

I can't remember which one Godaddy uses but Softalicious and/or Fantastico doesn't seem to know about the 2.0.x versions!!! So it's not Godaddy's fault either.

But sounds like you got it fixed now!!!
