Question: (Error:) "It seems to be script is not installed."
Answer: provided by jhawkin 136 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 142 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 145 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

Question: need a way to remove html entities from titles during RSS imports
Answer: provided by jhawkin 144 days ago
- 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 144 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.

Question: Animated GIFs/Avatars
Answer: provided by jhawkin 147 days ago
- 0 + Yes, OxyThemes, I think Pligg changes the extension but the format seems to still be the original gif format. I noticed that sometime back when building my first couple Pligg sites. And JPG isn't animated so it has to be a gif.

Question: Is there a template which is an exact duplicate to the simple to use reddit?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 152 days ago
- 0 + You're going backwards somewhat. Pligg 1.x.x ran a template called Wistie out of the box. I run a tweaked version of it on my 1.2.2 sites as it suits me. Maybe someone would update it to work with Pligg 2.x

BTW: the Blog side of my site runs WordPress on the 'Iconic one' theme which doesn't clash too much with Wistie!

I include a link here so you can see it http://wildwellent.com/

Answer: provided by jhawkin 151 days ago
- 0 + Hee Hee. Wistie is fairly bland or utilitarian out of the box but can be dressed up with artwork and clever CSS utilization.

I'm happy with what I have but plan a few changes here and there.

My business plan is calling for 150 plus sites so clear, easy, stable, and quick are important right now. Down the road when the income is up I'll probably hire some help including a designer.

Question: I can't submit on my site
Answer: provided by jhawkin 151 days ago
- 0 + Could be a browser refresh is needed but I doubt that is the problem. I've never seen that happen with Pligg except where I made changes from outside of Pligg itself.

Question: Anybody else besides me (and this site) running Pligg and WordPress together?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 148 days ago
- -1 + Yes, I have those modules and have been working with it as time allows.

BTW: what is the Pligg 'Salt Length'. I thought I had it right once but the login fails on the Pligg side.
