- 0 + You might also build a WordPress/Pligg hybrid site like this slightly different approach to the same need. http://wildwellent.com/

Question: Contact Form
Answer: provided by jhawkin 104 days ago
- 1 + What's so strange about that? I hate contact forms.

But you can go to manage - pages and create a new page and paste whatever form you need in there. You'll need something to parse the form's output and then email that to you.

Since I'm running a business, I just put an email address, office phone number, etc. in the footer.

Question: *URGENT* Need feedback to proceed fixing the issues
Answer: provided by jhawkin 109 days ago
- 1 + I'll take a stab at this one!

If someone is following you then they have indicated a wish to 'see and/or hear' from you so you should be able to message them!

But.... just because someone is following you doesn't mean they should be able to message you!

And... the above should be configurable!

1. Ignore messages from followers.

2. Alert if a follower messages you. (allow or Deny on a individual basis).

3. Allow any follower to message you.

4. Allow all messages!!

5. Actually follow this follower!

I'd go that route (the first two) with or without the configuration option.

And thank you for all the work you've done and for helping me with several issues. You Really Rock!!!!!!!!!!

Question: *URGENT* Need feedback to proceed fixing the issues

- 1 + The first part for sure but the second probably needs implementing (I don't know if that's the way it works in Pligg).

The first is probably how Pligg works now.

The second is how I think it should work as best practice but can it be done?

The second way would insure (well almost) that you never miss a wanted or welcome message.

Question: Where can get rss importer 1.2.2
Answer: provided by jhawkin 113 days ago
- 1 + You'll need to go to the module (if it installed properly) and setup the feeds.

You'll also need to move import.php to the root directory and you'll need a crontask to run that import.php from time to time.

Question: utf-8 problem
Answer: provided by jhawkin 113 days ago
- 0 + I don't have any ideas for you as I have little experience with this side of Pligg. I run English only websites and have no problems with the language files.

Support is by the user base for Pligg itself with the commercial module and Theme providers supporting their users as they see fit.

Question: Pligg & Wordpress
Answer: provided by jhawkin 119 days ago
- 0 + This website, Pligg.com, is a hybrid of Pligg and WordPress.

Many of my websites run WordPress in the root with Pligg as a subdirectory.

Here's the working website that incorporates the whole 'stack' I run. http://www.WildWellEnt.com. This site is based on Pligg with WordPress doing the blog and other elements including the sitemap.

Wild Well runs WordPress in the root, Pligg, Openx, SugarCRM, and phpLD (Link Directory) in subdirectories. It's fairly complete now but needs some tweaks and I haven't yet got the shared login worked out but I'm getting there.

The WordPress is running Multisite with Domain Mapping which is why WordPress has to be in the root directory. The Pligg is the older version, 1.2.2, can run multiple sites/subsites and is the main system on the public side.

Take a look if you want and I'd be glad to share my htaccess file which makes the whole thing work.
