Question: pligg 2.0.0 and pligg 2.0.2 do not work
Answer: provided by jhawkin 50 days ago
- 0 + For some reason I think I've had to clear mine on a couple sites when they didn't clear themselves. Back in the earlier days and caused by the 'Newbie to Pligg' errors I caused myself most likely.

I also had the one server here (the one running ZPanel) crash after it ran out of room when it forgot to clear itself. I cleared those logs first just to get enough turn around room to get the machine backup then get into the ZPanel to fix the error logs.

Not that Pligg in anyway caused the server problem. I just knew that was a darn good place to find some space and it was enough! Thought maybe this might help someone else down the road.

My Pliggs pretty much run themselves with no hitch now.

Question: I want to use Pligg as a collaborative blogging platform
Answer: provided by jhawkin 53 days ago
- 0 + I've built a hybrid of Pligg and WordPress on several websites and there is a login module (I haven't had time to get it working but it works here at Pligg.com).

The only users who need to see the WP dash board are admins the rest are just users unless they are given admin privileges.

I use Pligg as the front end, Use Pligg's excellent RSS/Atom capabilities to pull in articles from my own and other blogs and can allow user submissions also.

Here's a link to a working Hybrid I built http://www.WildWellEnt.com

- 1 + Oh, yeah, WordPress has the options to multisite itself and can pretty much give you what you need for multiple bloggers and multiple Blogs.

The Pligg ties it all together so very well.

Question: All module settings pages are blank following Pligg upgrade
Answer: provided by jhawkin 58 days ago
- 0 + Exactly which module did you uninstall? Then Reinstall? The one incompatibility I know of with modules is the difference between the admin user level in the two different versions.

Of course 2.0.2 is very different from 1.2.2 but it's surprising how many items in the two stayed the same or still work the same though the code might have been rewritten.

- 1 + Maybe the modules were trying to use the old admin templates or something like that then. Glad you got it working.

Question: Related links for Direct link
Answer: provided by jhawkin 53 days ago
- 1 + Sorry, I missed this one earlier but.

Related links point to related stories on your site.

What I think you want is the link under the title to go to the direct link instead.

Goto admin ---> config ---> story and set 'Use Story Title As External Link' to true.

Question: Dynamic Sidebar
Answer: provided by jhawkin 58 days ago
- 0 + What I did on one site was split the site into three instances of Pligg into sub-directories using the idea from Yankidank about Multi-Pligg. Just do a search. What he described was for 1.2.2 but 2.0.x will work the same way.

This gave me three sub-directories as a top level 'category' like system where I can setup anything in the templates specific to that pseudo top level category.

Question: editing or getting rid of welcome to pligg cms
Answer: provided by jhawkin 60 days ago
- 0 + Well, Yes, but there is also the 'change story status' admin ability where the admin can override the published/unpublished status where needed.

I didn't mention that to keep the 'noise' and confusion down while hoping the settings he has will allow the new article to be published immediately. (And just maybe I was thinking WordPress when I answered).

Didn't want to overwhelm the guy with info, and modifying the template seems way overboard to simply fix this little problem.

Question: editing or getting rid of welcome to pligg cms
Answer: provided by jhawkin 60 days ago
- 1 + Yeah, and it was a good answer. I'm just conservative on the changes I make to Pligg and or the templates (though I doubt anyone whose seen my site's innards would believe that for a moment!).

Maybe a place to look somewhere down the road might be 'child themes' where template changes are made in the child theme instead of the theme itself where the changes would probably disappear during a update.

Child Themes still wouldn't help very much with an actual change to a different theme but that suits my philosophy better.

Your answer is a good one!
