Pligg Support

I receive "ERROR: You have already voted on this article" when voting on a comment in a thread I have not previously voted on. This has happened here in the support forum.

Possible Answers

    I get this same error on all pligg sites (ERROR- You have already voted for this article): here, the demo, and my own. It happens in Firefox and Safari. Not sure, but is this some kind of settings issue?

    This might be a bug but I guess it has to do something with your internet IP Address. Pligg's comment system can track fake voting from the same computer.

    Same computer ≠ IP address. I regularly use a public wifi through a VPN which assigns a new IP address for each session. Even if vote tracking is done by cookie, I get errors when trying to vote on comments/articles that I know I have not previously voted on, so it is obviously a bug.

    Agree. It has to be a bug. Sometimes 'upvoted-green' and 'downvoted-red' show at the same time. If I find a way to fix it then I will get back to this forum.

    [slaps forehead] So, I made some progress on this: in Admin > Settings > Voting, I disabled the "Votes allowed from one IP" and I could vote on comments without receiving this error. I wonder if others who have this problem have tried the same thing?

    Hello, did you manage to find a work around to this? Without adjusting the settings. It would be good to stop people from upvoting their own content.

Who Upvoted this Story's Support area is where you can ask questions and get answers. Just getting started with the Support area? This section describes tips for participating.

Submitting a Question or Comment

By taking a minute to research previous posts you may receive an answer much faster than waiting for a response to a new question. Begin by searching the support section for an answer. Sometimes you may even want to extend your search to the entire domain.

If you are unable to find a relevant answer, submit a new question or comment here. Please provide a detailed description and, when necessary, debugging information such as your server environment (a link to a <?php phypinfo(); ?> .php page would be very helpful), your web browser, and any steps necessary to reproduce your issue.

Submitting an Answer

If you have an answer or useful response that you would like to add to a post, you can submit it as a comment which other users will then vote on. Answers are sorted by most popular to least, allowing the best information to climb to the top of the page.

Please read and vote for existing answers before submitting your own, as there may already be an acceptable answer provided. You can use the "Reply" link found within an answer to submit a response to it, in case you want to expand or comment on someone else's contribution.

Including Files or Code

Sometimes it is necessary for you to attach a file or include a snippet of code for others to reference in your response. In most cases, you can .zip up files and attach them to a question or answer using Pligg's file manager. At times though this may fail, and in these circumstances we recommend using a third party host. Below we are including a list of recommended websites where you can share easily share file uploads (or snippets of code) through the web.
