Question: [ASK] How to insert a no image icon
Answer: provided by jhawkin 131 days ago
- 0 + I was thinking about this at one time. The way I'd attack this is to modify the submission form in the template to default to your suggested image or else allow an uploaded image.

Create the new form in html first so you can then work the html into the tpl output. Not a tough task. Might not work but that's exactly how I start projects like this myself.

And, didn't you already ask this once? When you ask the same question twice it just clutters up this support area and half the posters may answer on one post while the rest answer the other. Don't do that!!!!

- 0 + I registered as a new user there (That's me, Gort). logged in and created a post.

You'll need to recover your password through the login form there.

Question: 500 internal server error
Answer: provided by jhawkin 133 days ago
- 0 + Not sure what is going on here but did you ftp in or look at your server error logs via the server control Panel?

BTW: This isn't related to this problem but looking at you DNS records I see two DNS servers that you parent servers don't seem to know about.

And when I requested a webpage from your servers IP address I see an 'account suspended' message which may or may not be any problem but I was hoping to see an actual webpage there. That would have helped me know the server was actually running and serving up webpages.

Anyway, look at those server logs and see if there's a issue there and call your host just to make sure everything is okay if you haven't done so already.

Once you're back up and running you might want to fix that DNS issue.

Question: 500 internal server error

- 0 + Do look into that DNS issue. It's not a big problem but might help lookup performance if you can get them either working or out of the picture.

As to the downtime, I'm kinda thinking maybe there was a billing or maintenance issue between the host and the reseller or something. That has happened to me as a reseller when the credit card or prepayment didn't go through and the host didn't inform me.

Question: RSS Importer Pligg 2.0.2
Answer: provided by jhawkin 136 days ago
- 0 + Check out this thread and try a few different feed urls also as sometimes certain feeds aren't formed properly and cause the importer to choke. I run this module myself and it took me a while to figure out what I'm doing but the module works well if the feeds are valid.

Question: RSS Importer Pligg 2.0.2
Answer: provided by jhawkin 135 days ago
- 0 + The 'theguardian' link itself worked in my reader and my rss importer so.....

Did you try re-installing the module from scratch with a new download of the module files?

Turn captcha and your other modules off for a few minutes maybe one of those is interfering with the save.

I'm kind of suspecting the install went sour. Probably where the install works with the database.

Question: RSS Importer Pligg 2.0.2
Answer: provided by jhawkin 135 days ago
- 0 + This one has me stumped right now. Most of my RSS import experience has been with Pligg 1.2.2 as that's what most of my sites (all the aggregators) run.

I'm going to set this up on one of my 2.0.2 systems tomorrow night with the available RSS module and see if I can figure this out.

In the mean time would you tell me about your host and anything you might think is important such as is your Pligg in the webroot or a sub-directory. Etc.

Can you register a new user? Can you post as that new user? Admin Panel work well?

Question: RSS Importer Pligg 2.0.2
Answer: provided by jhawkin 133 days ago
- 0 + Okay, on my most ill behaved server running a out of date ZPanel control panel I have a copy of Pligg 2.0.2 that didn't have the RSS Module.

I went straight to Pligg.com navigated to the RSS Importer. Downloaded. Fired up my worst FTP program. Logged in to the server. Navigated to the site's webroot, navigated to Pligg, and then the modules directory.

Opened the Zip and did a binary upload.

Went into admin then uninstalled modules and installed that module.

Went into 'Modules' and down to the RSS Import. Copied your URL for the guardian site and pasted it in. Cleaned off the extra characters (the support board had added) and hit the save button.

It seemed to save so I hit examine and there it was.

I did everything without really thinking but it still worked. I have no idea why it won't work for you.

Question: RSS Importer Pligg 2.0.2
Answer: provided by jhawkin 132 days ago
- 0 + The importer can't reach the feed without the http:// so examine shouldn't work. You might try editing the url from the edit button in the feeds list. This isn't making much sense to me.

Starting to sound like a server issue somewhat. Most of my stuff runs on Wild West Servers (Go Daddy) but I have installed on other servers without a hitch.

Could I get you to turn off verify URLs from admin submit temporarily? Just grasping at straws here.

And one more question. You can submit a post normally can't you?
