Pligg Support

In the Pligg 1.2 script there was a great function that allowed to give random votes to submitted news. Is there something similar for Pligg 2.x?

Possible Answers

    There was no such function or feature in Pligg 1.2. The only thing even remotely close would have been when a story was pulled in using the RSS Importer module, you could set the initial vote to a random number, which Pligg 2.0.2 also has.

    If your content is good and you promote the site well, the users will show up and votes will happen.

    Content is King!

    Define random, do you mean anonymous?

    All the available vote and other pligg settings are in the admin section.

    No, I'll try to explain what I want to say with an example.

    An user submit a news...considering the traffic volume is too low, nobody will vote that news. So, the script should give a random number of fake votes to the news (e.g., in a range between 5-20 votes) to give the impression the site is active.

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.
