Question: Pligg & Wordpress
Answer: provided by Yankidank 141 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 151 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 144 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.

Question: Repository for contributions and fixes
Answer: provided by Yankidank 130 days ago
- 1 + If you're not familiar with Git or SVN, then I suggest starting out with a GUI (graphical user interface) program to learn the basics of Git. Below are 2 different free software applications that you can use with Git, which should make it easier to pick up the lingo and processes. Both applications have text or video tutorials available online with a quick Google.

If you're familiar with the command line (as a Linux user or server admin), then you may be okay with learning Git from scratch. You can do this by following tutorials like the ones I've listed below.

Question: Repository for contributions and fixes
Answer: provided by Yankidank 144 days ago
- 2 + What ^Chuckroast said. Github pull requests are the most efficient way for us to import code changes into the project. If you aren't proficient with Git, then feel free to link to pastebin.com for code examples or provide .zip folders containing any changed files which we can review.

Question: I can't submit on my site
Answer: provided by Yankidank 200 days ago
- 0 + Is this an "out of the box" installation? Have you made any customizations to the template files, core files, or even the admin settings?

To troubleshoot, I would try doing a fresh installation to see if the problems still occur before messing around with your settings.
