Question: .htaccess is not working with pligg 2.0
Answer: provided by Yankidank 365 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 (example.com/subdirectory/) or subdomain (subdomain.example.com/) 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?

Question: How to avoid having the 'New' Section on Pligg?
Answer: provided by Yankidank 365 days ago
- 1 + Try adding a meta redirect to the new_center.tpl file so that it redirects people to the homepage, and set the "votes to publish" value to 1.

Question: Bookmarklet ----> Got 403 error
Answer: provided by Yankidank 364 days ago
- 0 + I can't reproduce this issue on either my local test area or the pligg demo website. It's likely an issue specific to your hosts security settings.

Question: how to make all new posts under moderation by admin.
Answer: provided by Yankidank 65 days ago
- 1 + This module will do just that, plus send you (or anyone that you specify) an email to alert you that a new story has been submitted and needs to be published.

Question: Are Pligg 2.0.0-powered sites vulnerable to brute-force attack?
Answer: provided by Yankidank 65 days ago
- 1 + Pligg CMS has a few different features to prevent brute-force attacks. The most powerful of which is a timeout that occurs when a wrong username and password combination is given. The timeout system starts with a 60 second wait before your next guess, and with each incorrect guess it gets significantly longer. I think the maximum timeout is something like 1 hour, but it could be as much as 24 hours. This system was put in place a while ago to specifically combat brute force login attempts and I don't think we even offer an option to turn it off because it is such a reasonable security service. I'm speaking from a memory of implementing this stuff a few years ago, so I may be missing a few details.

Question: How to show comments under each story?
Answer: provided by Yankidank 420 days ago
- 1 + I am looking for a way to display a few comments in a similar fashion for a new theme that I am working on. I think it will require a custom module of some sort to accomplish this feat. If I make any progress I will try to report back.

Question: Give moderators more access
Answer: provided by Yankidank 426 days ago
- 2 + I'll take your suggestion into consideration as a future update. Right now the moderator system is rather basic and could be improved pretty easily. I was hoping to put it off work related to this until we have a chance to expand user levels and allow for custom permissions.

Question: Rename Groups
Answer: provided by Yankidank 435 days ago
- 0 + There is no simple way to completely rename the groups URL (at least not yet). You could try renaming the file from groups.php to hotspots.php and then customize all links pointing to the old groups.php page so that they direct to the new location. Simply renaming that one file though may not be enough, as other files may rely on it being named "groups.php".

I am hoping to add some new options to Pligg down the road to allow users to better define their SEO URLs, so it may be possible in the future if you are using URL Method 2 (requiring htaccess rewrites).

Question: I bought Pligg teir 3 with moudle
Answer: provided by Yankidank 435 days ago
- 1 + I've credited your account with the Twitter, Tweet, Facebook, and Ticket modules. Sometimes users need to have a billing address listed to be granted download permissions, so please make sure that you have provided us with a billing address which you can fill in here: https://pligg.com/account/edit-address/?address=billing.

Question: Custom User-how to create?
Answer: provided by Yankidank 435 days ago
- 2 + I should point out first that what you want would probably be done around 'user levels'. Pligg uses user levels to determine basic permissions for the 4 default user groups: 'Admin', 'Moderator', 'Normal', and 'Spammer'. The Admin role can do everything, include changing site configuration values. The Moderator class should be limited to managing content (users, stories, groups, comments). Normal users are your everyday Joe, able to submit stories, comments, and groups. Finally Spammers are those who have been banned from the site for submitting spam content.

Unfortunately Pligg's user level system isn't quite set up to work how you imagine out of the box. In fact, you would need to do a bit of coding to create new user levels and then set special permissions for each of your features. This is a feature that I would love to add to Pligg CMS, but it would take a considerable amount of development to make it happen. As they say, "time is money", which is why this non-essential feature hasn't yet made its way to Pligg CMS.
