Pligg Support

Dear Pligg Developers,

First great job on Pligg 2.0 and the new Pligg site. Thanks!!

Second, I am getting 'Story already in database!:' message with every story that I submit
on Pligg 2.0. . What could be causing this? I did click on clear cache button and try it.

Possible Answers

    Find the following lines in submit.php

    if($linkres->status != 'discard' && $linkres->status != 'draft') { // if link has already been submitted

    $main_smarty->assign('submit_error', 'hashistory');

    $main_smarty->assign('submit_error_history', $linkres->status);

    $error = true;


    Then comment them out so it looks like this.

    //if($linkres->status != 'discard' && $linkres->status != 'draft') { // if link has already been submitted

    //$main_smarty->assign('submit_error', 'hashistory');

    //$main_smarty->assign('submit_error_history', $linkres->status);

    //$error = true;

    I ran into this issue. I was able to figure out a workaround by commenting out lines 580 - 584 in submit.php

    I'm still having this issue.... Not to sure why but it's happening. When the user submits, it's showing the error, but when I go to the admin, I see the story awaiting moderation which is weird seeing I have mo module that can moderate submissions anyways... I can set the story to new and it works.

    Error Found:

    Blog Article already in database!:

    The reason ti' saying it is' submitting than checking, so yea it's in the database now but it wasn't... and it's awaiting moderation.

    Possibly your sever doesn't support Fsocket open. Try disabling url validation in the settings > submit >

    Clear your cache and try submitting again.

    If that doesn't work then come back and provide some more details like Pligg version, was this a new installation or an upgrade, and the template you are using.

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.
