Question: Auto generate tags
Answer: provided by jhawkin 5 days ago
- 0 + tags and tagging kind of says 'human participation' in some way.

Auto tagging would require some way for the machine to understand what a human might find interesting. And that might be the trending topics but possibly yesterdays or even tomorrows trending topics...... and one guy just wants a 'cheeseburger'! How do you arrive at that?

- 0 + Some further thoughts on tagging - autotagging:

Any posts imported by the RSS module has tags added. I'm thinking Magpie does that.... they are fairly accurate. Maybe that code would be a good place to start looking.

Maybe a 'suggest a tag' module might be a better option.

The length of the tags set is limited in the editor by a setting in the submit section of the configuration. This often trips me up when I edit a RSS imported submission. Not bad enough to warrant a bit of code change right now but I've considered that.

- 0 + I'm just pointing out some considerations and a idea of where a programmer might start looking.

I have no idea on this as I see tagging as a human interaction with Pligg and don't really feel comfortable with having the software develop tags itself.

- 0 + Redwine, that is pretty neat. Can that functionality be extended to the story, title, and tag fields and then added to the current story editor?

Then the selection for multiple tags?

And can it be aware of the total allowed tagline length? Right now if you submit a story (atleast in version 1.2.2) and the tagline is too long submit rejects the whole submission or edit and you have to go back then re-edit the whole thing.
Question: RSS Import - Fatal error
Answer: provided by jhawkin 7 days ago
- 0 + Is it failing on just one feed or all? If it's all feeds then the code may have been clobbered during upload or something.

Make sure you have a good feed and have setup the fields (there are three almost must have fields - link, content and url).

Remember, just because a feed reader can handle a feed doesn't mean magpierss can handle it. I usually try to run a problem feed through feed burner first and then validate it if feed burner can't handle it too.

If the feed fails validation...... here's a system that can fix broken feeds and give you a url to replace it with. Else reload/reinstall the rss module!!
Question: install pintheme and pligg cms

- 0 + What is pintheme??
Question: Spam Prevention
Answer: provided by jhawkin 7 days ago
- 1 + You can rename or even delete the register.php file to completely stop registrations but....

You might still want some registrations or you might want to only manually allow registrations which would mean you'll need a form or email address just for registrations. I'll leave that to you.

Some other modules might need the register.php file. The Facebook/twitter login and the 'user bridges' type modules might need it.

Pligg can send a email notice when you create an account manually as the admin.

Here's more on an automatic register.php renaming script. I did play around with this but chose to disallow registrations on some of my sites. I did allow anonymous voting on those.
Question: Spam Prevention
Answer: provided by jhawkin 7 days ago
- 0 + Here's a site running without a working register.php file. I modified the template to only show the normal top login/register form to registered users, then removed the input boxes, and the register link from that.

There is a login option on the menu and the form in the sidebar but if you chose register from the login box you'll get a page with a announcement in it instead of the registration form . Later on I might add a contact form or email address to that. So far that hasn't been a issue!!!
Question: Can put a limit attempt for "password reset", like login process?

- 0 + Sounds like someone (a hacker or hacker wanna be?) trying to access your site surreptitiously.

Go into your system logs and find their IP address and block them via htacess!
Question: Issue with captcha cut off when try to register?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 12 days ago
- 1 + Blue Standard Template??? I'm not familiar with that one. Did you mean Blue Ice??

Since you didn't provide a URL and the image isn't here, I can't see the image or the site.

First thing to try is another (best is the default Bootstrap) template. Don't worry you don't need to keep the original template, you just need a idea of where the problem comes from and since Captcha seems to work for everyone else up to Template changes and/or module changes I suggest starting there.

If it happens to be the template causing the issue then you need to contact the template author.

Next consideration is any changes to code or setting you might have made before you discovered the issue.

Next would be disable all the extra modules you might have added. Next is uninstall modules if disabling didn't help.

Else, give us more info, screenshots and URLs.
