Pligg Support

Ok. So when a user submits a story, just as I am submitting this support story, I would like after step 3 to redirect them to the page of the story they just submitted. How can I do that ?

Possible Answers

    Just replace from the following example with your site's address.

    In your submit.php file find:

    header("Location: " . getmyurl('new'))

    and replace it with the following two lines:

    $thecat = get_cached_category_data('category_id', $linkres->category);

    Any idea why it doesn't work for few categories? It gives 404 error. I don't understand why it works for stories submitted in category 'tech', but not for category 'politics'. Would be really nice if you can help me. Thanks.

    What url method are you using?

    Oh, I've wrote it wrong in the link.

    It's category_safe_name, not category_name.

    So it should be:

    It works! Thanks for your help.

    SEO URL method 2. I guess it's a category redirecting problem. Categor ID vs Category name? Would really appreciate your help.

    Wow. Thank you very much. You have no idea how much I have searched for this.

    For those that do not use SEO Urls the second line is : header("Location:$linkres->title_url");

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.
