Without .htaccess file some pages returns page not found error like when click on submit button it returns 404 error and when I am trying to open submit page with submit.php then it's working.

    Thanks for the reply to both of you. I had changed the template to default and disabled the .htaccess file.I have also changed the seo urls to default and now it working but the activation link is not working when i am trying to create a account as a new user.

    Beyond what jhawkin said about using the default template to make sure everythign works fine from the get go, there may be other issues at fault related to your server's settings or implementation of the .htaccess file.

    If you are running Pligg in a subdirectory ( or subdomain ( you need to review and edit the .htaccess file contents. It won't work out of the box in those situations.

    Another possible cause may be your server's support for mod_rewrite and related security settings. Are you certain that your host allows for .htaccess files?

    I'm not sure but here's my take on all this:

    The Amelia Template seems to be provided by an outside vendor.

    'Out of the Box' Pligg should run okay using the template from the distro and the items that come with it.

    Why don't you backtrack and reinstall just the distro then get that running. Test drive it for a time and get any issues out of the way.

    Then install (or try to install) any different templates you want or modules you feel you need?

    Or change your SEO method after you see everything running well.

    HTAccess is tricky at times but the default file usually works out of the box. It's when you try to tweak things that it starts to break or else something else isn't right and tossing other factors in just clouds the whole problem up.

    One step at a time.
