Question: Pligg & Wordpress
Answer: provided by jhawkin 91 days ago
- 0 + For what I think you want (WordPress in root, Pligg in a subdirectory) you probably don't need to worry about htaccess. If you want Pligg to be the 'frontend' of the site though (with Pligg in the subdirectory) then you'll need to run an enhanced htaccess.

WordPress provides it's own htaccess file which I added to in order to cause Pligg to answer as the domain (act as the frontend) with Pligg running in the subdirectory.

If you find you need that after you get WordPress and Pligg running I'll be glad to help you with that.

I used the rewrite generator from to create much of the modified htaccess directives
Question: Pligg & Wordpress

- 0 + Well, I appreciate the download and all the work you all did to build it and provide that foundation. I believe the download is complete as it almost works and I'm sure once I get some time to work with it I'll get it figured out.

It's setting cookies and acting like it wants to work already. There's just a little problem yet. I'll get it sooner or later.
Question: Pligg & Wordpress
Answer: provided by jhawkin 82 days ago
- 0 + There is a unsupported WordPress Plugin and a Pligg module out there to do this.

I'm running it on one website but haven't got all the bugs out yet.

Some of my sites run several Pligg instances from one database with different table Prefixes. Multi-Pligg!!!

Some of my sites run WordPress and Pligg from one database with different table Prefixes.

Some of my sites run WordPress multisite with domain mapping and Pligg from one database with different table Prefixes.

My big problem is 'I'm not a good php programmer' but I'm always listening for good ideas and solutions.

Re: your other post - Grab that Pligg WordPress module. I think you'll see the code you need right there.

I look forward to hearing more about what you have done Re: your other post!!!
Question: Webmaster forum

- 1 + It's a good idea. Just be patient. But running a forum isn't easy when people get mad about anything like a vendor or a Pligg issue itself.

- 0 + Must be browser specific! Looks fine here with article at top and doesn't automatically scroll down either.
Question: How i make the pages show?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 101 days ago
- 0 + The pages are there if you created them, now you get to play web guru:

Start by finding the full link to your two new pages. I usually find them and visit the new page(s) in a new browser window. You can visit the link(s) from the 'pages' editor.

Figure out which menu you want the link(s) at then add the links, using the URLs you visited, to the template's navigation menu.

I'd add a little comment to point out where the menu was modified and by who just in case someone else ever needs to work on it.

The places I usually add menu buttons/links at is within either the header, footer, and/or sidebar templates. You can reach those via the template editor from the admin panel.

If you'll pay close attention to the LI, span and closing tags then you'll find the css will make it all look right and you can set spacing there, too, if the menu gets crowded.

I just did this over the weekend at
Question: Facebook module help. Change in creating facebook apps problem.
Answer: provided by jhawkin 103 days ago
- 0 + Been a while since I created a Facebook 'APP' but the approval process isn't a big deal. Is the Facebook module you bought the one for the widget? Or the one for logging in via Facebook?

I just hard code insert the Widget into my sidebar template if you just need the widget.

If instead you bought the 'Facebook Module' for logging in then I'm guessing you'll need API and Oauth.

Hope this helps a little.
Question: I'm getting ready to try installing the WordPress login plugin / Pligg module again.
Answer: provided by jhawkin 110 days ago
- 1 + I can't find where it's declared as a variable but I did find it in the database but couldn't get the module/plugin to work when I originally set it up.

Is it a random number? It always seems to be set to the same length in all my Pliggs.

So, anyway, thinking about it..... I think my problem is the login mechanism always returns to a non-existent page causing a 404. I'm thinking, if you don't actually render a page - you don't set the cookies. So when I get back to this I'll need to fix that problem and then it should work.

Question: Increase Traffic in New Pligg Site?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 125 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.
