Question: Facebook not scraping image of the shared page
Answer: provided by jhawkin 62 days ago
- 1 + No, my experience was when sharing from any Pligg page to Facebook I'd wind up with an advertiser's image on Facebook so I created a site specific image in the header to stop that problem.

If a user submits an image that may (or may not) appear in the image list within the Facebook form but my header image always appears as one of the images now.
Question: forgotten admin password need to set up newone?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 64 days ago
- 1 + Your site seems to not be working at all. I see a 500 error and a blank screen unless I try your admin login link. There isn't any password recover in the admin login.

And with all the trouble you're having I'm wondering if you might be better off starting over from scratch.

Or switching to a host that offers an auto install!

Or even hiring someone to do this over for you. It's possible your webserver doesn't have the ability to even run Pligg or some issue like that.
Question: Error Log Issue. Plz solve this error
Answer: provided by jhawkin 68 days ago
- 0 + It's a warning message. As long as your site runs okay you probably don't need to worry about it.

Yeah, it would be nice to fix it but.......
Question: Heppy Template problem
Answer: provided by jhawkin 72 days ago
- 0 + Here's what I'd do:

Put a known good template (I suggest the fully supported default template that came with your install) and get everything working the way you want. All the features, bells and whistles!

Then change template to the one you want. Hopefully everything will still work. If it doesn't then find the new template author and solicit his help.
Question: Heppy Template problem
Answer: provided by jhawkin 71 days ago
- 0 + What did you try? Contacting the template author? Or my suggestion of using the default template to get (or prove) the features working then switch template?

If the feature(s) doesn't work with the default template you probably have a configuration problem.

If you tried reaching the template author (and you couldn't) then you have an author problem......

Switch out the template, get it working, find a template that works or you can get working.

- 0 + Good Point. I can't address the Theme/Template providers here but I know that the Pligg cms does what it does very well.

The default Bootstrap theme is fine and provides a platform to move forward with. Much of the theme can be changed via simple CSS changes.

There are other theme providers who do support their products. I suggest you research the theme and provider before you spend your money. If the theme provider seems to be active here on this support area overtime he is probably a good bet.

I wish you well.

Question: Can someone tell me if the template "Coolstrap" works with pligg 2.0.2? Thanks!
Answer: provided by jhawkin 74 days ago
- 1 + Backup your database, backup your file system.

Find a copy of 2.0.1 (You might need to get that from github) install it then try the upgrade button (I know but try it anyway). If it won't 'upgrade' you'll need to hand install to your existing database.

Is this really worth all this?

What I'd do is backup everything then install the template and just see if it works with 2.0.2 (it probably will). Then test like crazy.

It's probably worth doing it this way.
Question: Change url from to just
Answer: provided by jhawkin 77 days ago
- 0 + You could use mod_rewrite in htaccess. That's how SEO friendly URLs are done.

There's several online generators and lots of info online about rewriting URLs as long as you're on and Apache webserver.

I think I'd leave that alone as 'user' kinda says what the info is about and user profiles are not all that useful outside of logged in users making use of the social aspects of Pligg. I'd put my energy into content.
Question: How can we add ads in pligg.
Answer: provided by jhawkin 80 days ago
- 0 + Depending on the site, I run mine in my sidebar, header and/or footer template files.

Just remember the {literal},{/literal} pairs if it's Javascript or doesn't work properly. And you might need CSS to help position them properly.
