Question: RSS Importer Pligg 2.0.2
Answer: provided by jhawkin 85 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.

- 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 84 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

- 0 + Okay, on my most ill behaved server running a out of date ZPanel control panel I have a copy of Pligg 2.0.2 that didn't have the RSS Module.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 81 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?

Question: block all subdomain of www.domain.com
Answer: provided by jhawkin 86 days ago
- 0 + If you're wanting to block the spammer's ISP then htaccess is the answer but if you're trying to block the link's domain then that has to be done through the 'ban url' mechanism within Pligg. I've never tried a wildcard in there but I think that's what is needed to block all sub-domains.

Question: How many users/traffic can pligg support at any one time?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 87 days ago
- 0 + I think the limit would be dependent on your database size and capability. A few of my sites have several thousand users (mostly disabled spammer accounts) with no problems. I keep those accounts there as it's not real easy to delete a user and keeping the disabled spammer account helps lower the spam potential somewhat.

The overhead for user accounts is pretty minimal.

I have one site that is nearing 20,000 posts (but just 66 user accounts) and it runs without a whimper.

Answer: provided by jhawkin 86 days ago
- 0 + Well, remember, reddit and digg are probably running on a cluster or two of dedicated unix (Linux) servers and cdn servers. Their databases are probably on one cluster and whatever they use as a program on another cluster with their cdn up in the cloud.

Their software is most likely all hand written and their whole focus is on serving up the one site instead of 3 dozen websites, another several dozen databases, dns, email and assorted applications and a control panel like is found on most server accounts that would run a typical Pligg install.

Question: submit new link with confirmation

Question: [ASK] Setting verification email
Answer: provided by jhawkin 87 days ago
- 0 + I don't think there's any way to verify 'configuration changes' via email. What is the situation and why would you need that function?

Email notification is there for some normal user 'events' (built in) and posts (if you add the story moderation module).

What you want would require storing configuration changes temporarily and then sending a email. Can be done but would require a good bit of custom coding for very little benefit that I can see.
