Pligg Support

hi guys
I recently installed pligg and also bought few modules as well for my site. how ever I did not understand the difference between auto content scrapper and auto embed modules what is the difference between them can any one explain to me in detail

Possible Answers

    While they may look similar, there is big difference actually. The Auto Content Scraper will let users optionally add their own media and have it embedded into their submission. That other module ONLY uses Embedly API will not let you add your own content. It doesn't have nearly the functionality as the Auto Content Scraper.

    I should also point out that the Auto Content Scraper is been updated every couple of months for almost 4 years now. There are constantly new updates and additions made to it.

    I will always recommend using a module by a known developer, and one who has been with Pligg since 2005, and consistently improves upon his work over someone who poorly tries to copy another developers work.

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.
