Pligg Support

Question: Facebook module bug, shows a blank page after authentication
Answer: provided by Yankidank 141 days ago
- 0 + Sorry to take a while to get back to you. I assume that you are still having this problem? I am unable to reproduce any problems myself on my local test environment using the latest version.

Usually the issue is related to the API settings. Either the API permissions on were not set correctly (something that has been less of a problem as the API has improved over time), or the API key hasn't been entered into Pligg's Facebook module settings area.

Check your error logs to see if there are any messages being output by your server that might help diagnose the issue. If you continue having issues you can email me directly at eric (at symbol) (sorry to obfuscate that, trying to avoid spam).
Question: Give details on the changes to Saved Drafts
Answer: provided by Yankidank 141 days ago
- 2 + I suggest you use Winmerge to compare the source code between your old copy and the new version to see what's changed. If you happen to have an old, but unmodified version of the module then that would be the best way to get a quick comparison. I don't track my development of that module on SVN or GIT, so there's no easy way for me to tell you what's been updated now that it's been so long since I applied the changes.
Question: Navigation Bar Control
Answer: provided by Yankidank 173 days ago
- 1 + The smarty variable {$} will return the page's url value. So if you have a page at then it would return a value of 'demo'.

If you need to determine if the current page is the 'demo' page, for the purposes of highlighting an active menu tab, then you could use code like this:

If you want to add a link to your page near the end of your main navigation bar (the blue bar across the top of bootstrap), then I suggest using that line of code in header.tpl just above the line that contains the module hook: {checkActionsTpl location="tpl_pligg_navbar_end"}
Question: Unable to Shift from non-seo link to SEO Links
Answer: provided by Yankidank 173 days ago
- 1 + It is possible that your host may not support htaccess rewrites. Who is your web host, and what plan are you using?

If you are installing Pligg in the root of a domain (not in a subdomain or subdirectory), then all you should need to do is change the URL Method value to 2 from the admin panel (Admin > Settings > SEO) and then rename your "htaccess.default" file to ".htaccess".

If you have installed Pligg in a subdomain ( or subdirectory (, then you will need to edit a few lines in the .htaccess file, all of which are near the top of the file and commented.

Answer: provided by Yankidank 180 days ago
- 1 + Please review the Pligg CMS download page ( for a list of features that have been added since Pligg 1. This blog post ( also describes some of the new features. Personally, I would recommend upgrading just for the improved admin experience and security improvements.
Question: I can't access to user profile page
Answer: provided by Yankidank 173 days ago
- 0 + Most likely your template or .htaccess file is out of date with the version that you are running.
Question: Sorting categories
Answer: provided by Yankidank 224 days ago
- 0 + It does look like it is mixing in multiple categories for some of the sort options. I guess we will have to take another look at this issue.
Question: Sorting categories
Answer: provided by Yankidank 189 days ago
- 0 + I suggest moving just 1 category position from the category management admin page at a time, then re-load the page to move another category. If you attempt to move multiple categories around without a page refresh it will often go haywire.
Question: Posting problems Here?
Answer: provided by Yankidank 225 days ago
- 1 + I know that Pligg 2.0.0 had issues with displaying saved fields if you messed up a captcha and had to go back to re-enter information. I think that's fixed with Pligg 2.0.1 (out today), but we haven't yet upgraded /support.
Question: .htaccess is not working with pligg 2.0
Answer: provided by Yankidank 225 days ago
- 0 + Beyond what jhawkin said about using the default template to make sure everythign works fine from the get go, there may be other issues at fault related to your server's settings or implementation of the .htaccess file.

If you are running Pligg in a subdirectory ( or subdomain ( you need to review and edit the .htaccess file contents. It won't work out of the box in those situations.

Another possible cause may be your server's support for mod_rewrite and related security settings. Are you certain that your host allows for .htaccess files?
