Pligg Support

Fixed the sort by Upvoted, Downvoted and Commented.
1- Now the pagination is accurate and no more blank pages.
2- Each of the above sort reflects the result of the page from where they were requested (I.e. from index page, returns the results of
links with 'published' status. and from New page, with status = 'new.
3- Private groups links no longer show in the result unless the logged in user is a member in those groups. It is filtered in the
if ($group_list) { statement that creates a list of groups ids in which the user is member.

You also need to fix the multile category search

And for your negative votes to discard a story to work properly, you need to apply this fix too (you can only apply the code modifications in /libs/link.php at the bottom of the page)
I think I fixed a small bug in the twitter login app.
It was requireing you to authorize the app everytime you logged in.

In twitter.php I changed the line from "public function authorizeURL() { return self::$TW_API_ROOT.'/authorize'; }"
function authorizeURL() { return self::$TW_API_ROOT.'/authenticate'; }"

and that seems to have done the trick.
Now if I can only get facebook to pull in the user image I'd be golden.

Anywho. Check out what I'm doing at and let me know what you think.
In my Facebook I have the Desk Hop VNC APP. I use this with a few clients at times. My Facebook is listed in my Profile.

If you need help, are in the continental US, on a highspeed connection and a PC or Laptop, friend me then message me with your problem. I'll co-ordinate with you there.

Only Thursday nights 7PM and later , I'll pick and choose the problems and who I'll help. If this doesn't get ridiculous I'll consider extending this some.

I'm in the process of outlining a possible book or document. This is for case studies and further experience. Else this might wind up on my websites.
When I want to download some plugin there is a problem. Go to login. OK I login and nothing happen. Just go to This happen with Agree to Terms Free plugin and Spam Trigger plugin.
Recently, the support site is filled with questions that answers have been provided in previous posts!

Moreover, some users are installing Pligg, having no clue whatsoever and do not bother exploring the Admin Panel first and before they hammer the site with questions...It is like buying a house and keep calling the company or the previous owner asking how to turn the lights on or how to move the stairs and change the decor!!!

In their questions, they need everything YESTERDAY and all is either nonsense or need modifying the whole Pligg core!!!!

You want help? Then:
1- Do your homework first
2- Ask a clear question and don't let us hire a psychic to guess what you really want.
3- If you have no clue whatsoever, then please don't expect us to tailor the Pligg CMS to your imagination!!!

As of Pligg CMS version 2.0.2, the Voting feature on comments is not visible due to some code. To fix it, follow these steps:

Open /templates/bootstrap/comment_show.tpl
LINE # 10 ..... CHANGE THIS {if $Enable_Comment_Voting eq 1} TO THIS {if $Enable_Comment_Voting eq true}
LINE # 12 ..... CHANGE THIS {if $Enable_Comment_Voting eq 1} TO THIS {if $Enable_Comment_Voting eq true}
Save and close

Open /templates/bootstrap/user_comment_center.tpl
LINE # 72 ..... CHANGE THIS {if $Enable_Comment_Voting eq 1} TO THIS {if $Enable_Comment_Voting eq true}
Save and close

An error is generated when the statement that evaluates the comment_buries_spam value. To fix it, see the last section of the attached link.
Can we use Pligg as collaborated blogging platform? When I checked Pligg I found that its mainly using to publish articles from some other websites and comment on that. I want to use Pligg as Wordpress but many users can log in and blog or write articles themselves than linking to somebody's article in some other website. I do not want to use Wordpress since WP is not having default user registeration plug in. Apart from that if we use any plug in also, WP shows the dashboard of WP for the users. Please help. I am not a coding expert.
The Statistics Widget was returning "UNKNOWN" for the MySql version. To fix it:
Open /widgets/statistics/templates/widget.tpl
On LINE 138, delete this bloc of code between the {php} and {/php}. It is returning an empty array:
function find_SQL_Version() {
$output = shell_exec('mysql -V');
preg_match('@[0-9]+.[0-9]+.[0-9]+@', $output, $version);
if ($version[0] != ''){
return $version[0];
return 'Unknown';
echo find_SQL_Version();

Replace it with the following block, between the {php} and {/php}
$link = mysqli_connect(localhost,EZSQL_DB_USER,EZSQL_DB_PASSWORD);
/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
printf("Connect failed: %sn", mysqli_connect_error());
$my_sql = mysqli_get_server_info($link);
//$my_sql returns will be something like the version and -log (5.5.24-log). we have to just grab the version number
$my_sql_version = substr($my_sql, 0, strpos($my_sql, "-"));
echo $my_sql_version;
