Question: Facebook Embedding ( Auto content + OTnewz theme )
Answer: provided by jhawkin 154 days ago
- 0 + Facebook makes the decisions then.

I just accept what Facebook does since Facebook is just to direct traffic to my Pligg. Actually, Facebook pretty much runs the Monster Highway website since they treat Monster Highway as part of their system www.MonsterHighway.com

Question: Hide Story Content from Home page
Answer: provided by jhawkin 156 days ago
- 0 + Sounds like you want an index page so load your main page into a html editor and remove what you don't want. Save it as index.html and upload it. That's how I did it when I needed a page like that.

Question: Hide Story Content from Home page
Answer: provided by jhawkin 154 days ago
- 0 + No. But if you want an index other than Pligg's index.php file that's where I'd go.

I'm sure you could modify the tpl file to do this as there are 'hooks' all over Pligg to allow you to do most anything. If you want to go that route I'd create a second template file.... modify the first for use with the main page and use the second for the underlying pages.

There's no way I have the time to figure this out for you but I hope this will steer you toward the answer you need.

BTW: I did the index.html file during development of WildWellEnt.com to handle the weird redirect I needed (due to the technical need for WordPress to be in root for that site) with Pligg actually being the front end of the site.

One of these days I'm going to document some of the stuff I've done..... maybe a book!

Question: Looking for a Pligg Developer
Answer: provided by jhawkin 156 days ago
- 0 + Please provide a URL to your site so we can see if it's working properly already. It's hard to quote something then find the site is broken.

Why do you want to do this in Pligg when Salesforce seems to be the platform you want to emulate!

A few more details on what you need and/or expect would help.

Question: Looking for a Pligg Developer

- 0 + randy93552 said, "I have a clean installation being spammed all to hell at dragondropsoftware.com (Any advice as to how to kill the spam registrations and postings would be appreciated)

Rename you register.php file until you wish to go live. Run Akismet, Abyss, or whatever module and story moderation. These all help.

On my Pligg 1.2.2 install I run a renamed and hidden register.php with a modification to allow it to still work but Pligg doesn't see it. The original register.php just informs people to contact me because I no longer allow open registrations. This is a little involved and may not suit your purposes.

Killspam is your friend!

Question: troubleshooter.php
Answer: provided by jhawkin 154 days ago
- 0 + Well......

"If any errors appear on that page you may have a problem with either installing or running Pligg."

You are welcome to ignore running that if you wish! But I'm thinking other people (like me) appreciate that nice, helpful tool.

Wondering -- Why would anyone take exception to this??

Question: troubleshooter.php
Answer: provided by jhawkin 135 days ago
- 0 + I've already uploaded and installed that file to all my Pligg installs and used it.

It worked as it is supposed to and alerted me to troubles on a few installs.

Question: Every time I click on the RSS Import Module nothing happens
Answer: provided by jhawkin 173 days ago
- 0 + Where is this 'RSS Import' you're talking about??

If you mean the RSS links on the main page (and the other public pages) then that gets populated as you add content.

If you mean the 'RSS import' under the admin side of Pligg then you must add feeds to that first. It's not hard to set up! If there's nothing there at all then you'll need to troubleshoot that issue but you should see a add a feed link and others.

Question: Every time I click on the RSS Import Module nothing happens
Answer: provided by jhawkin 172 days ago
- 0 + Oh, I thought you were having trouble with running the module itself. You need help with the download of the module from this website.

Yankidank will have to help you with that.

Question: How i can add a splashpage ?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 173 days ago
- 0 + Depending on what you want and what you actually mean, the Quick and Dirty method would be to place Pligg in a sub-directory and put your Splash Page in the root!

It's not real difficult to move Pligg to a sub-directory.
