Question: Pligg & Wordpress
Answer: provided by jhawkin 2 hours 28 minutes ago
- 0 + This website,, is a hybrid of Pligg and WordPress.

Many of my websites run WordPress in the root with Pligg as a subdirectory.

Here's the working website that incorporates the whole 'stack' I run. This site is based on Pligg with WordPress doing the blog and other elements including the sitemap.

Wild Well runs WordPress in the root, Pligg, Openx, SugarCRM, and phpLD (Link Directory) in subdirectories. It's fairly complete now but needs some tweaks and I haven't yet got the shared login worked out but I'm getting there.

The WordPress is running Multisite with Domain Mapping which is why WordPress has to be in the root directory. The Pligg is the older version, 1.2.2, can run multiple sites/subsites and is the main system on the public side.

Take a look if you want and I'd be glad to share my htaccess file which makes the whole thing work.
Question: Webmaster forum

- 1 + It's a good idea. Just be patient. But running a forum isn't easy when people get mad about anything like a vendor or a Pligg issue itself.

Question: How i make the pages show?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 9 days ago
- 0 + The pages are there if you created them, now you get to play web guru:

Start by finding the full link to your two new pages. I usually find them and visit the new page(s) in a new browser window. You can visit the link(s) from the 'pages' editor.

Figure out which menu you want the link(s) at then add the links, using the URLs you visited, to the template's navigation menu.

I'd add a little comment to point out where the menu was modified and by who just in case someone else ever needs to work on it.

The places I usually add menu buttons/links at is within either the header, footer, and/or sidebar templates. You can reach those via the template editor from the admin panel.

If you'll pay close attention to the LI, span and closing tags then you'll find the css will make it all look right and you can set spacing there, too, if the menu gets crowded.

I just did this over the weekend at
Question: Facebook module help. Change in creating facebook apps problem.
Answer: provided by jhawkin 10 days ago
- 0 + Been a while since I created a Facebook 'APP' but the approval process isn't a big deal. Is the Facebook module you bought the one for the widget? Or the one for logging in via Facebook?

I just hard code insert the Widget into my sidebar template if you just need the widget.

If instead you bought the 'Facebook Module' for logging in then I'm guessing you'll need API and Oauth.

Hope this helps a little.
Question: I'm getting ready to try installing the WordPress login plugin / Pligg module again.
Answer: provided by jhawkin 17 days ago
- 1 + I can't find where it's declared as a variable but I did find it in the database but couldn't get the module/plugin to work when I originally set it up.

Is it a random number? It always seems to be set to the same length in all my Pliggs.

So, anyway, thinking about it..... I think my problem is the login mechanism always returns to a non-existent page causing a 404. I'm thinking, if you don't actually render a page - you don't set the cookies. So when I get back to this I'll need to fix that problem and then it should work.

Question: Increase Traffic in New Pligg Site?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 33 days ago
- 0 + You need good content and you need to get the word out. Grab some business cards with your domain on it and hand them out every chance you get.

Post something every day and share your posts out to social media.

Allow commenting and participate in comments.

Never miss a chance to mention your website when the answer, information or images being discussed are available there. But don't wear it out.

Submit your site to the search engines and provide a xml sitemap.

Use SEOQuake and follow it's recommendations.

Don't get too excited about Pagerank and Alexa ratings, etc. Those things will take care of themselves if you build a decent website.

Make sure site navigation is easy and intuitive.
Question: User Authentication from External IP
Answer: provided by jhawkin 44 days ago
- 1 + Unless you're running a server within your home/office network then all logins are external. In other words if you host at GoDaddy and you login from your home/office which is in another state then your login is external (from another IP).

So, if the website is reachable then the user should be able to login. Look at the user's account in admin and make sure they are enabled (make sure they verified their email if you have email verification turned on). They should be a 'normal' user (not a 'spammer' in the settings.

Let us know what you see if this info doesn't help. Or give a URL so one of us might register to test the account setup functions..
