Question: How to change the background color of a single button in the top navigation bar.
Answer: provided by jhawkin 15 days ago
- 1 + Easy way? Use the Site Inspector in Firefox/Firebug to take a look at the CSS. Then a little looking in the template files, a little editing and you should be done.

Else I'll need a URL so I can use the same tools here to look at your site and possibly help you.
Question: Suggestion box
Answer: provided by jhawkin 16 days ago
- 0 + What's wrong with a paper suggestion box?

Did you want anonymous suggestions? Are the users remote users? Is this going to be on a intranet? Or will this be accessible from the web itself?

Pligg can be customized to do this. If the suggestion requires drawings or added files you'll want to use the upload module.
Question: Community Members Increasing
Answer: provided by jhawkin 22 days ago
- 0 + You're probably getting spammed. Pligg is often targeted by spammers because it's supposed to be fairly liberal about allowing posting and links. And out of the box Pligg installs welcome most any registration.

Tighten up your registration process. Require email verification.

I hope you are not allowing anonymous posts.

Make good use of Pligg's antispam modules.

Learn to block domains within Pligg.

Fliter out words that shouldn't normally be posted anyway.

Consider tweaking htaccess to block certain problematic IP addresses.
Question: How to add analatics code on my sbm pligg website?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 43 days ago
- 0 + I put mine in the meta.tpl file. That's site wide for the Pligg side anyway. You can put the Quantcast tracking code there also if you use Quantcast!

Don't forget the opening and closing literal tags.
Question: how to change pligg templets ?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 47 days ago
- 0 + You'll need to download the template first.

Pligg's template change/update doesn't work like WordPress' template system. You don't browse new templates and there's no demo of your site with the new template.

You just find a template you like, purchase or download the template, upload to your site and install using the admin menu.

Easy enough.
Question: Preview Not Working
Answer: provided by jhawkin 53 days ago
- 1 + Works fine for me but if you're referring to the 'step 3' submit preview then that isn't even working (probably not turned on in configuration).
Question: share idea with support team and other programmers
Answer: provided by jhawkin 54 days ago
- 0 + Most of the development energy in the other CMSs you mentioned happened outside of the core files of each of those CMS. Security, themes and plugins fuel most of their core changes as those items 'suggest' improvements.

The biggest short fall right now is documentation that digs deeper into Pligg's core than the Pligg support staff should even officially venture.

Here's an area that's just ripe for the picking if you have some technical expertise, can write well and/or collaborate with someone else who can. It's been something I've been wanting to do myself but between my web hosting venture, working a regular job and this 'content aggregation sites' idea I've been working on for the last two years I just haven't had the time.

It would really be sweet if Pligg should ever grow a documentation system comparable to WordPress' Codex.
Question: karma not change
Answer: provided by jhawkin 55 days ago
- 0 + The other user who upvoted may have actually liked the post and 'bothered' to 'like' the post to let the community know.

It's not really fair to penalize a user for liking some post that gets deleted later.

And removing Karma from a user who did nothing but participate in your community might discourage that user from being active any further or even coming back. Active users are precious commodities. Don't discourage them.... embrace them!!!!

Also, sooner or later any given post will most likely become redundant or broken due to the outside links/images being deleted. A few complaints from other users, down votes, or a 404 might prompt you to delete the post at that time.

You shouldn't remove karma from a user who liked the post when it was a viable, useful post!

Mine is pretty bad also...... It's all good!

Don't let that stop you from asking for help!

- 0 + How do you know it's a OxyTheme problem? Can you get into admin?

Change back to default theme and check it.

Got a URL?
