Pligg Support

Reference post

I fixed the issue with banned or flagged members being still able to share and do activities as normal. In addition, I am working on fixing the issue of the Edit button being displayed, even for the Group Creator and Group Admin, which is incorrect and leads to no effective actions.

The questions is:

If there is another Admin and Moderators of the Group:

1- None of the privileges are displayed to them
2- The second Admin can ban, flag, change role of the creator of the Group BUT CANNOT deactivate the Creator and Admin of the Group. However, a Moderator can do all!!!

Are Admins and Moderators supposed to have banning, flagging, editing members roles and status privileges the same as the Creator? Are they supposed to apply those privileges even on the Creator of the Group?

Please provide the answers so that I continue fixing the groups features accordingly!
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)
Is it possible to manual approve user? i want to block the user until user is manual approved by admin because i am getting to many spam registration. or can we just allow registration through facebook or twitter
I am working on the adding friends and sending private message issues referenced in:

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!
Hi,why i cant download the free module.. i already sign in but when in module page the download button still "login to download"..
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.
Step One

If we set the value of “Negative votes to remove submission” in Admin Panel -> Settings -> Voting to any number other than zero, all submitted stories after this change will be discarded. The code is inaccurately processing the “buries_to_spam” variable which reflects the value set above.

To fix this bug see the link:

Step Two

In Admin Panel -> Settings -> Voting -> Negative votes to remove submission is set to 0 by default. However, in the current code, this defined variable that is assigned to buries_to_spam does not achieve its goal to set the story status to 'discard' when it reaches the number we set in here. As a matter of fact, even with the default value of 0, the story will be sent to discard. The fact is that the function evaluate_formulas () in \libs\link.php is what decides the status of the story when the formula set in the table_formulas is evaluated.

See the complete trace and fix:
Freshly installed Pligg 2.0.2 and no changes on any settings and template.

All submissions were not successful because it will show: "URL is invalid or blocked:" even though URLs are valid.

Even if Submit > Validate URL is set to false, it still shows that error.
Hey i was wondering if it was possible to manually sticky/feature items at the top of the home page. Is there a module do this? I want to have "editor's picks" at the top, so people can easily see what i think is the best content.
There was a bug with already voted and already buried buttons.
When a person voted for or buried something the buttons changed classes into btn-success or btn-danger. After refreshing page the buttons stayed as they were supposed to. When a person changed his/her mind and wanted to 'un-click' the vote, btn-succes or btn-danger classes were removed and the link for already voted or already buried lost a btn class and was left without any indicator that it's a button.
Now it's fixed and you can see it here:

I've created a fork request for it
