Question: my pligg sites are not accepting submissions
Answer: provided by jhawkin 68 days ago
- 0 + Your site doesn't like my URLs.

Your site is confusing with all the duplicate ads obfuscating the submit button to where you can't hardly find it.

How did those ads get there? That's not a pristine install! Someone modified the templates or added the ad code!!!

You have all those ads and no content. There's little reason to join a website that doesn't have content or any compelling reason to join.

If it did work it would just be a haven for spammers.

Never the less, If you'll email me the site and host credentials or elevate user 'Gort' to admin I'll take a look by Thursday night. I'll probably really need the host credentials to get anywhere.

Email me. Do Not post that sensitive info here!!!

Question: my pligg sites are not accepting submissions

- 0 + Hee Hee, I wondered if you could find that from your site! That's the kind of info that is there when you have registered users. As you go along you'll learn a lot of this info about your users. They are trusting you, be careful with it.

Anyway, If you'll look in my profile here or user Gort in your site you'll have the email address. spambait@gmx.com

Question: Site Redirecting to Another Page - just for some users
Answer: provided by jhawkin 115 days ago
- 0 + I looked at your dns and the other site's dns (looking for commonalities) and then tried to pull up the Pligg readme.html. The Pligg Readme is there so I ruled out a dns or server issue.

I then tried Pligg from just the domain name. That works. Add the www and it redirects to the jewelry site. Added www. to the klinkk.com/readme.html that works. Click the home icon on that page and you get the www.domain which then redirects.

This all tells me the problem is probably in the Pligg system somewhere (I still could be wrong). But it only redirects on the www.domain not the domain by itself and only when Pligg is in control. Not when the server by itself is dealing out the pages..

Look at your htaccess (or kill it temporarily) and look at the configuration. Give a look at config.php and settings.php just to see if there were any changes.

I don't think there's any dns or server issues that are causing this but you can't rule anything out completely until this issue is tracked down.

Go into admin and just look at all the posts titles. You're looking for URLs and scripts. I didn't see any but it's a thought.

Let us all know what you found and if you need further help.

That's a great site, I spent some time reading over there yesterday and learned a lot.

I would appreciate you letting us know what you found when you have time.

Question: Site Redirecting to Another Page - just for some users
Answer: provided by jhawkin 108 days ago
- 1 + That really is a nice site!!!

Since the problem only appeared on the www domain (and I suspect it may have been a while before you found out) you might want to canonize one or the other names just to help discover problems like this quicker. Be aware that this might cause a few SEO issues and you might want to declare the same canonical name in the meta tags also.

If you do a Cname in DNS be aware that you can't have Cnames in MX records so if your email server is the same as your www domain (rare but it happens) you'll need to do something else.

Question: how change ERROR: already voted 1/-10
Answer: provided by jhawkin 116 days ago
- 0 + Look for 'PLIGG_Visual_Vote_AlreadyVoted' in Lauguages or appropriate Language file in languages directory.

The number refers to the vote to add or remove and the second number refers to the result (I think), This number should probably be suppressed in the code but it's a minor issue.

Question: how change ERROR: already voted 1/-10
Answer: provided by jhawkin 116 days ago
- 0 + Shows you how little I know. I thought the word 'Error' was the same in all languages. Never even gave that a thought!

But I tried searching for Error in the language file and didn't find what I was looking for. That should have made me rethink this question right there.

Question: SEARCH, READ...and then ask when you don't find the answer
Answer: provided by jhawkin 116 days ago
- 0 + Don't go... and don't get mad. Just keep in mind we are all volunteers doing support here. And I think your questions are right amazing at times..... I've been where you are several times over the years.

Do your homework the best you can before you ask for help but if you can't understand the answers available then go ahead and ask. Maybe the answer that worked for one user needs further clarification for you and others who have yet to ask.

Question: On infinite scrolling i need message "Stories are loading"
Answer: provided by jhawkin 117 days ago
- 0 + As far as I know this is not built into Pligg itself or any modules.

You might be able to hire someone to code that into your theme or code it yourself. I wouldn't know where to start.

I put a finite number of posts on my pages and use pagination figuring most returning users wish to see the newest posts. The number of posts per page was selected to work with my extra long sidebar without leaving too big a empty space.

Question: How to change meta description on main page?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 118 days ago
- 0 + Not sure if this is what you (and others) might need but if you can't find what you need in the 'languages' area.........

If you'll look into the root 'templates' directory you'll find a meta.tpl file there which will accept any sitewide meta content you wish for your site.

This is where I have my Google and Quantcast scripts, my Geo and DC meta tags. Any thing that an affiliate, coder or extended services provider says to put in the 'header' or meta area of your website.

You can have conditionals there and don't forget the {literal}

{/literal} tags to keep smarty from trying to parse scripts.

BTW: in 2.0.x the meta.tpl file is in templates/bootstrap instead of templates as it is in 1.2.2
