Question: Admin page issue
Answer: provided by Yankidank 350 days ago
- 1 + Check your settings.php file and make sure that the $my_base_url value does not have a 'www' in it (or just 1 set of 'www'). If that file does have any www values in it, then you will also need to update your Admin settings the next time that you are able to login to the admin panel. You can do that from Admin > Settings > Location Installed. Without updating that, the settings.php file will eventually get overwritten by your database settings.
Question: BUG: Agree to Terms & Captchas do not show up in Register Modal
Answer: provided by Yankidank 368 days ago
- 1 + Captcha appears normally for me in the modal window when using Bootstrap.

The agree to terms does not, which I am okay with since it's a free module. If you want users to be forced to agree to terms, then redirect the Register navigation link to the register page where it does embed itself.

- 2 + The reason that my account does not have an email address on your site is because I signed in through Twitter, which doesn't allow you to import user email addresses through the API.
Question: BUG: "No Category selected" on Support Edits
Answer: provided by Yankidank 368 days ago
- 1 + I'm not sure, but I just tried applying a fix for this. Let me know if you still have the same issue with editing a submission.

I think that we only allow edits for a short amount of time (~24 hours). So you may need to create a new post if you are not able to edit this one.
Question: Register on mobile device = black screen
Answer: provided by Yankidank 368 days ago
- 1 + I assume you are talking about the Solvemedia CAPTCHA embedded in the support area? We just enabled it a couple days ago. I too find it annoying, since I tend to always have to watch a 5 second video to get my phrase. Chuckroast finds it less annoying than ReCAPTCHA, which can be very difficult to read at times.

I switched to SolveMedia so that we would have better defenses against spammers. It's the strongest CAPTCHA option offered for Pligg at this time.

Perhaps it would be a good time to enhance the CAPTCHA module so that it only presents CAPTCHA challenges for users with fewer than X submissions, comments, or votes? Or at least a way to disable CAPTCHAs for moderator and admin level users.
Question: Draft Module Broken
Answer: provided by Yankidank 283 days ago
- 1 + The blame actually falls on the Bootstrap template used by Pligg CMS. The Save Drafts module is actually performing as it should, but the Bootstrap template is not loading the saved content into the main content field when you bring up a saved article. This Bootstrap issue is also related to a problem where if you fail to fill in a required field and go back to fill it in, the story description will appear empty. In both these cases, there is data saved in Pligg's database for that field, but it isn't getting inserted into the template. This is a bug that I hope to resolve in a future Pligg CMS update.

I've added a warning to the Save Drafts product page ( so that users will be aware of this bug.
Question: Sitemap Error 404
Answer: provided by Yankidank 373 days ago
- 1 + Again, I believe this issue is related to your site not being configured for URL Method 2, which is required in order for you to generate sitemaps using a .xml url. You need to rename your htaccess.default file to .htaccess and be on a server with mod_rewrite enabled.

Furthermore, if you are using the default Pligg sitemaps module the URL would be

{if $image1} Image does exist {/if}
Question: How can I solve the invalid chracter problem on my website?
Answer: provided by Yankidank 374 days ago
- 2 + This could be an error caused by your MySQL database not encoding the characters as UTF-8. I would need more information about what exactly you are experiencing to determine the issue. Are any characters appearing? Is it only not saving characters in a certain field (title, description, tags), or does the problem persist for all submission input fields?

Would including a screenshot of your issue help demonstrate the problem?
Question: Report posts or comments
Answer: provided by Yankidank 373 days ago
- 1 + This should actually be added in as a module, rather than a core feature.
