Pligg Support

Greetings!

I'd like to make the category menu highlight the category selected just like Popular and New highlight when selected. I've been poking around the style sheet and I can't seem to find it. I'm using bootstrap.
I am working on the adding friends and sending private message issues referenced in:

http://pligg.com/support/question/how-do-i-send-a-private-message/#c2124
http://pligg.com/support/question/cannot-follow-members/#c2125

I was able to fix a lot in the logic of the code and got good result. However, In order to be able to fix it completely I need to understand the logic of following and followers, therefore I need your help.

Following is when we add a user.
Follower is when a user adds us.

Now, the way I see it is as follows:

If "A" follows "B" and "B" follows "A" then they can message each other.

Otherwise, they can't and an option to accept (follow) the user will be provided.

Is that correct?

Any other feedback will be appreciated to perfect the system!
Whenever I try to follow a member by clicking on the follow button I get an error message and I'm unable to follow any member. The message say:

The page you were looking for doesn't exist!
It may have been removed or you may have arrived here by using a bad URL
Try searching for the article you are looking for.
Visit the Homepage to see the most recent stories.
Browse categories and tags to find a related story.

I search for members to follow then click on follow and the button doesn't work or send notification to the member that I'm following the person.
I tried to post here a few minutes ago and received a Captcha that presented a box to enter my email address with a message about 'suspicious activity from 'this address'.

I just reloaded the Captcha again and it went away.
When you manually delete, as a user and publisher of the story, or as admin delete a story or remove all discarded stories from the Admin panel, the tag_cache table is deleted as well and you are left with no tags in the sidebar or the cloud, until you manually edit a story and add/remove tag or after a new story submit.

To fix this bug, follow these steps:
1- Open adminadmin_delete_stories.php
2- Go to line 82 or look for:

$query="DELETE FROM " . table_tag_cache;
if (!mysql_query($query)) {error_page(mysql_error());}

Insert right after it this code:

$sql="INSERT INTO ".table_tag_cache." select tag_words, count(DISTINCT link_id) as count FROM ".table_tags.", ".table_links." WHERE tag_lang='en' and link_id = tag_link_id and (link_status='published' OR link_status='new') GROUP BY tag_words order by count desc";
if (!mysql_query($sql)) {error_page(mysql_error());}

Save and close
3- Open delete.php
4- Go to line 133 or look for:

$db->query("DELETE FROM ".table_tag_cache);

Insert right after it this code:

$db->query($sql="INSERT INTO ".table_tag_cache." select tag_words, count(DISTINCT link_id) as count FROM ".table_tags.", ".table_links." WHERE tag_lang='en' and link_id = tag_link_id and (link_status='published' OR link_status='new') GROUP BY tag_words order by count desc");

Save and close.

What we did here is we rebuilt the tag_cache table after every delete.
I find that /story/###/edit/ or editlink.php loads very slowly and needs php memory resources to be set very high to load at all. All other pages load fast. What can I do to fix this?
Hello again people.
Is there are any way to support animated GIFs (avatars) in pligg? I noticed when a user uploads an image it always changes its' format to jpg. How can i change this?

Thank you in advance
Pligg is great but it doesn't really work as a forum. I feel the old pligg support was much more user friendly and that this format is holding pligg development back. Anyone else agree?
Hey all,
I was wondering if its possible to add a badge or icon, similar to twitters verify check mark (see attached). Anyone have any idea how this could be done? Thanks in advance!
I have worked on some changes to Pligg files to better accommodate the switch of languages, in this case the Arabic language. It is done in a way that will make any change/addition to the files very easy to carry on in case of an update to Pligg (assuming that Pligg developers did not have time to implement the modifications and the recommendations I submitted.)

The attached zipped files are as follows:

1- A JPEG image to show the before and after the modification.
2- Simple Messaging lang_arabic.conf to be saved in "\modules\simple_messaging"
3- An HTML file of the "\languages\lang_english.conf" (showing the modifications to the translation, as well as the new Constants added to accommodate the changes.)
4- An HTML file of the "\languages\lang_arabic.conf" (showing the modifications to the translation, as well as the new Constants added to accommodate the changes.)
5- An HTML file "Language Config - Usage in Files.html" It is a complete mapping of all the "lang_english.conf" Constants, showing in what pligg files they are used and the Line number.
6- pligg-fixes.html, the step by step process of modifications

Note that some of the steps are applicable to all languages, therefore I encourage everybody to read the "pligg-fixes.html" file.
