Question: pligg 2.0.0 and pligg 2.0.2 do not work
Answer: provided by Yankidank 13 hours ago
- 1 + 1. Can you provide a link to your site?

2. What does the troubleshooter (/install/troubleshooter.php) output? It may flag a few possible causes like CHMOD permissions or incorrectly named files.

3. You may want to try using the latest development version to see if that makes any difference. You can download it here: https://github.com/Pligg/pligg-cms/archive/master.zip . If you choose to go this route, you may need to manually change your version number to 2.0.2 when the official 2.0.3 comes out so that you get the database updates. Right now an install of the dev version will show 2.0.3.

4. You mentioned having other Pligg sites on the same server, what are they running?

Question: Fix to the LINKS Module (removing the <br /> from the link
Answer: provided by Yankidank 14 days ago
- 1 + I've applied the suggested change to my local development environment, but I haven't committed it to Github just yet. I have a number of files that I need to go through and update after reviewing your user permission changes even further.

Answer: provided by Yankidank 15 days ago
- 1 + Make sure that you always add a space after a URL. Adding a line break will result in the link not closing. I edited your comment to make sure that I was right about that.

Question: It seems that most of my posts and also some others were lost.
Answer: provided by Yankidank 16 days ago
- 1 + Yeah, there are a few items that seem to need to be manually set back to published or new. It seemed that re-publishing your own stories pushed your karma way back up so now I'm going to have to decrease your karma score now so that you don't leap to #2 (since that's my spot!).

Question: How could my Karma drop overnight??
Answer: provided by Yankidank 16 days ago
- 1 + I made a couple updates to the website to make it a little more difficult for the person in question to harass the site. I didn't have an up to date vote function for /support until now, so he was able to cheat the system a little. Perhaps this is a good time to remind people that it's important to keep Pligg CMS up to date. I also locked down the number of votes allowed from an IP address to just 1 (previously the limit was 2), and we now block a number of temporary email services from registering new accounts.

Redwine: I just gave you a karma boost to get you back up to nearly 4,000 karma.

- 1 + Chuckroast tried to recover any stories or data that were changed to discard due to the negative votes.

- 1 + Don't rush to do that just yet, as I still need to investigate further for the next 2 hours to see if the data is still in the database. It should be recoverable, since Pligg CMS shouldn't delete data from the database unless an admin presses a button to clearly do just that.

Question: *** URGENT. NEED answers about the functionality of Groups
Answer: provided by Yankidank 51 days ago
- 2 + I was actually about to fix some issues related to group user roles this week. I noticed last week that the template needs to account for group moderators better. Currently there is a lot of missing table data when viewing the Group members tab. Also like you said, there are a lot of other role issues that need to be better defined. Let me use this post to describe what I believe to be the proper permissions for each group role type.

Group Admins should have the following permissions:

• Edit Group Title

• Edit Group Description

• Change Group Avatar

• Assign member roles (admin, moderator, normal)

• Delete Group.It would be nice if we had a option to make the creator of the group (original group admin) the only one capable of deleting the group, but that isn't how it's handled right now.

• + Every ability moderators have

Group moderators should be limited to following features:

• Change the status of a group story. For example: move a "shared" (or "new") story to "published".

• Activate a group member. This doesn't appear to be supported as of 2.0.2, so it needs to be added.

-----------------------

Here's where there are probably issues in the existing code. The term "moderator" is being used throughout the group system, but "moderator" is actually a site-wide role. I'm guessing that some code bits may be confusing the two different roles because of the shared name. Perhaps we should change the role name for group moderators to something like "leader". Doing this may result in break older template though, so I'm hesitant to make that change without further input.

Question: *** URGENT. NEED answers about the functionality of Groups
Answer: provided by Yankidank 50 days ago
- 2 + The site-wide moderator role should be capable of changing the story status (publish, new, discard). The killspam feature is probably too powerful for the role though, which is a feature that they currently have access to. I'm fine with giving them the ability to enable users from the admin panel, but disabling users may be excessive.

Moderators should be able to edit a story just like the author, in case they need to remove personal info or they have some other cause. Site moderators should also have the ability to manage groups or a user's profile.

Moderators differ from admins because they are applying content-specific changes. For example, editing a story, editing a group, and editing a user. Admins are making changes to site-wide settings like the Language file, configuring the site, managing modules, etc.. Using this logic, I think that the domain whitelist and blacklist pages needs to be be restricted to admins.

- 0 + Thanks for the update. I'm awaiting your final version before trying to integrate the changes or performing any group changes myself.
