Possible Answers

    Both the Auto Content Scraper and the Facebook Comments module have now been updated to fix the conflict with Pligg's new module sorting.

    You can download them from your account.

    I just looked at your site and it seems like there are a couple issues going on there.

    1 There is a known and reported bug in Pligg URL Validation that is causing it to pull in some source code when you submit a youtube url. It's unrelated to the Auto Content Scraper. You can turn off URL Validation from settings, submit, url validation = false. That should help for now till they can patch that bug.

    2. I did notice 2 issues with the Auto Content Scraper on your site. The first being that it's attempting to add an additional link closing tag. An the other being that it your site doesn't seem to be adding the call to the javascript correctly. I'll tear into that module first thing in the morning and see what's going on. I'll probably release another update for it as soon as possible tomorrow. - I'll reply here again as soon as I do so you'll be notified.

    3. The "Read More" link was taken out of Pligg 2.0.0 but you can activate it again. If you open templates/bootstrap/link_summary.tpl in any kind of text editor.

    Go to line 170 and 172

    You should see the following

    170 = {*

    172 = *}

    Remove line 170

    Remove line 172

    Another thing to note, it looks like you are using some modules that were made for the Pligg 1.x.x series. I don't know if those will all function correctly in the Pligg 2.x.x series. since the new Pligg uses some javascript that wasn't used in the previous series, some of those modules, like the language one for example could cause javascript conflicts. I will need some time to look into those and eventually upgrade them to Pligg 2.x.x compatibility. But for now, I would recommend sticking with only modules that are verified for Pligg 2.x.x

    The latest version of the Auto Content Scraper is now available. There were a couple small bug fixes and now includes update notifications (when available) in the Pligg admin panel, module management section.

    I just dug into this a little deeper. It looks like this is a Bug in Pligg Module Management.

    They added a "feature" where you can move the display placement of modules by dragging the module name in the installed modules list up or down.

    The idea behind it was to allow admins to move something that's placed in the sidebar above another easily.

    It looks like it's creating all sorts of problems because you can use it on any module name.

    Try this experiment.

    Install both the Auto Content Scraper and the Facebook Comments module.

    On the installed modules list, drag the auto content scraper line above the facebook comments line and release.

    Now if you load a page with a video you'll see the video appears, but the comments won't.

    Go back to the installed modules list and drag the Auto Content Scraper below the Facebook Comments and release.

    Then go back and refresh that same page. This time you'll see that the Facebook Comments will now load but the video won't.

    Neither one of these modules use the same module hooks, so they should not be effected by that drag and drop feature but for some reason, they are.

    I'll submit this to the bug reporting area.

    The changes I mentioned above would not cause that error. In fact it looks to be unrelated to everything I mentioned changing above.

    It could be that error is being caused by the RSS Importer because that's the only module you are using currently that has anything to do with the pligg_links table.

    It also could be an error for some other module you've activated that can't be seen from someone like me just looking at the front end. For example Akismet, Spam Trigger, or Human Check.

    If it's neither one of those, my suggestion would be to go into myphpadmin select the pligg_links table and then select repair.
