Question: Cannot Follow Members
Answer: provided by Yankidank 21 days ago
- 1 + If you are able to pick out just that changed files, it should be simple for me to compare your files to the latest and to merge them in. Just bundle up the files as a .zip and attach (or send as a link).

I just posted a couple fixes related to the Follow / Unfollow button URLs. You can see my latest commit notes here: https://github.com/Pligg/pligg-cms/commits/master

Question: Change Subnav Category Color When Selected
Answer: provided by Yankidank 21 days ago
- 0 + Thanks for the snippet. I've applied a similar solution to Pligg CMS 2.0.2 (still in development right now) so that others can take advantage of this feature. The style.css file will include a blank #categories li.selected { } property awaiting a style.

Question: Pligg & Wordpress
Answer: provided by Yankidank 33 days ago
- 2 + We developed a Wordpress to Pligg user database mod so that we could do just that on Pligg.com. It's not the most polished script, but it gets the job done. I've wanted to share this for a while, but I didn't want to give it it's own page in the Downloads section because then people would expect me to maintain and support it.

The script comes in 2 parts. The first part is a Wordpress plugin that handles connecting your Wordpress user database to your Pligg site. Wordpress handles the main login/logout process as well as user registrations, so you will need to disable the Pligg registration page.

The second part is a Pligg module that will redirect login/logout requests to Wordpress. This script has a few hardcoded URLs in it that require you to customize the wp_redirect_main.php file (search for "/account") .

Question: Pligg & Wordpress
Answer: provided by Yankidank 31 days ago
- 1 + I may have missed something in the download package, but as I said I really don't want to provide any support or insight into the matter. I was only hoping to at least provide users with some basic starting blocks.

Question: Weird Captcha Notice when trying to post here!
Answer: provided by Yankidank 41 days ago
- 1 + I sent an email to a representative from Solvemedia and here was their response:

"Our security ratchets up dynamically based on several factors that might flag a user as a bot. This can be unusual IP activity (historical or current) and/or it can be aberrant user activity such as refreshing or failing puzzles and so on - there are several different things that are monitored to identify automated systems from humans and it is designed to do this so we can serve nice easy puzzles to known humans and increasingly difficult puzzles to bad actors.

So our images become increasingly distorted and difficult to read - which is desirable if the user is a bot - however a real human user can get caught in this trap when we see a "false positive" for bot activity. It can/will become impossible for them to proceed and continued refreshing will only make it worse. For this reason we have instituted a 2-step authorization process so that the user can validate with us through an alternative means and avoid this frustration. Once they have authorized with us this way they will remain on our nice list for a period of time (network wide) just as if they had solved the puzzle correctly.

In short - It's designed so that humans have an alternative way to verify with us should they need it."

So it sounds like they are now offering an opt-in whitelist for those who may for whatever reason be acting in a suspicious manner (ex. a large number of page reloads, several incorrect captcha answers, excessive number of captcha requests, etc.). You can now register yourself (presumably via email) to un-block yourself from their network filter. If you are seeing these warning messages in the SolveMedia captchas you may want to consider doing that to avoid getting blocked.

Question: Solution fro the sidebar saved stories to display only those belonging to the logged-in user
Answer: provided by Yankidank 34 days ago
- 2 + I finally got around to adding this to Github. I made some slight adjustments to your code, the most notable being a variable name change from $user_logged_id to just $user_id.
