Question: Increase Traffic in New Pligg Site?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 119 days ago
- 0 + You need good content and you need to get the word out. Grab some business cards with your domain on it and hand them out every chance you get.

Post something every day and share your posts out to social media.

Allow commenting and participate in comments.

Never miss a chance to mention your website when the answer, information or images being discussed are available there. But don't wear it out.

Submit your site to the search engines and provide a xml sitemap.

Use SEOQuake and follow it's recommendations.

Don't get too excited about Pagerank and Alexa ratings, etc. Those things will take care of themselves if you build a decent website.

Make sure site navigation is easy and intuitive.

Question: User Authentication from External IP
Answer: provided by jhawkin 130 days ago
- 1 + Unless you're running a server within your home/office network then all logins are external. In other words if you host at GoDaddy and you login from your home/office which is in another state then your login is external (from another IP).

So, if the website is reachable then the user should be able to login. Look at the user's account in admin and make sure they are enabled (make sure they verified their email if you have email verification turned on). They should be a 'normal' user (not a 'spammer' in the settings.

Let us know what you see if this info doesn't help. Or give a URL so one of us might register to test the account setup functions..

Question: User Authentication from External IP

- 1 + I've never tried Pligg from anything but port 80. I would have thought it would work but another user said his Pligg wouldn't run on 8080 either.

You might want to dig into the code to discover way.

Or try adding a post yourself and then see if you can see it from off the internal network. I suspected the SQL connection the other time but never heard anymore about it from that other user.

Question: (Error:) "It seems to be script is not installed."
Answer: provided by jhawkin 130 days ago
- 0 + Why don't you turn off everything like Karma and other extra features, modules, etc. until you get to a working setup then add them back one by one.

Also, in index.php you can see the scripts that are 'required' toward the top of the file. I can't remember what all is there but...... One of those may not be present and make sure you didn't clobber dbconnect during setup.

You can run the troubleshooter again if you didn't delete the install directory yet. Might tell you something.

Question: Why i can add this link to my pligg website ?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 137 days ago
- 0 + Nice catch on that one Oxy!

I was thinking the problem came after the story was entered (when the link was clicked). Never thought about Pligg itself rejecting the well formed URL.

Maybe using a URL shortener service to generate a new URL from that one would allow the URL to work from Pligg. Not a great fix but would allow a working solution until a code fix could be created.

Question: need a way to remove html entities from titles during RSS imports
Answer: provided by jhawkin 139 days ago
- 1 + Thanks Redwine!!

This is what I added to:

rss_importtemplatesimport_fields_center.tpl LINE # 30

if($link->pligg_field == 'link_title'){$MyArray['title'] = html_entity_decode($link->feed_field,ENT_QUOTES,"ISO-8859-1");}

I then deleted two offending posts and did a 'override' import of the feed which loaded fine but didn't do one bit of good.

So I either have a syntactical error or else my flags are set wrong.

Here's three titles that were imported after the change:

Chris Wilson's Bronco at the Baja 500 this weekend.

Two guys...two new rides! Trent Montgomery in Bounty Hunter and Nate "Opie" Kirc

VW Kübelwagen Type 82

- 0 + It works with either setting on the php test site but doesn't work in the code itself. I'm thinking it's my syntax!!! I wanted UTF-8 but read somewhere that was the default and didn't work properly.

Question: need a way to remove html entities from titles during RSS imports
Answer: provided by jhawkin 138 days ago
- 1 + Thanks, Redwine, that's 'Quick and Dirty' but it works fine. I'll note that in the proper places in my code.

I probably should revisit doing it in the RSS module down the road as I'd rather not have the html entities present in the database since submit doesn't seem to allow that but RSS does.

But it works and you can't argue with success!!!

BTW: I'm running 1.2.2 instead of 2.0.x (except for one site) which may account for the weirdness with the tags but I've never removed the RSS module either. RSS is the key to what I'm doing.
