Pligg Support

Id like to add a forum to my site - but something simpler in terms of layout like this "forum" here on Pligg. Is this modified Pligg available as a module at all ? I have lots of experience with VBulletin and Phpbb but not looking for something like that. Something simple and clean. Any other recommendations ?

(Loving Pligg so far as a new user)

Possible Answers

    You might also build a WordPress/Pligg hybrid site like this slightly different approach to the same need.

    What you are seeing here is Pligg's core function. This isn't anything special added except possibly a few tweaks to enhance the look and feel.

    If you want Pligg to act one way publicly and be a 'forum' also with a different look and feel or configuration then I'd suggest running two instances of Pligg.

    You can also run WordPress and Pligg and run a forum from there. Or attach any forum you want to Pligg. The problems you might run into are bridging logins between the dissimilar cms or forum apps. There is a WordPress/Pligg bridge available but I've never had time to get it running yet,

    An example of Pligg running several Pligg instances (the four Pligg instances all share one user table) and a WordPress Blog can be found here

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.
