Question: "The page isn't redirecting properly" error
Answer: provided by jhawkin 9 days ago
- 0 + Usually, when something like this happens and you haven't made changes it's either some new content or a problem at your host.

I checked your site...... Way too many ads for me!

Anyway, site was loading fine then suddenly I received a 404 from the site. Not the ad server. It was your site. Then nothing.

I checked your DNS. And tried to load from the domain (without the www) nothing either way. There doesn't seem to be a DNS entry for the root domain pointing at a webserver

So I'd call the host. Looks like CloudFlare via w3hub.

Hope this helps.

Question: How to rename the '/admin' url, mainly for security purposes?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 11 days ago
- 0 + You can rename the files if you like. That's easy enough. You'll most likely run into problems somewhere but I understand your feelings here....

Pligg does have pretty good brute force protection.

You might also delete all the admin files from your production site if you like and run an instance of Pligg elsewhere just for admin duties. You'll need your database set up to accept connections from both servers.

But, what if IWP or some other remote admin service decides to offer some kind of integration down the road? Suddenly your site may not work with that.

You pays your money - You takes your chances.

Question: How to rename the '/admin' url, mainly for security purposes?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 10 days ago
- 0 + There's three ways to find out if your database will accept outside connections.

One is when you setup the database were you offered that choice? And did you accept it?

Two is to ask your ISP and three is to just try it. Your ISP probably prefers their database only connects to their service.

Do a complete backup. Copy all the sites files to a different server or even use a sub-domain pointed at a different directory. Don't run install! Just try it!

When you copy the files the file that calls the database gets copied with them. It either works or it doesn't. It will probably work fine from a sub - directory but the files will need some tweaks.

Don't touch configuration to tweak the second site until you have a strong grip on this and understand multi-Pligg and the effects of tweaking settings. This ain't easy.

Once you have it working go back to the main or first install and start removing/renamin admin files etc.

Backups are super important here when doing multi-Pligg which is what you're doing.

This is all the assistance I'll be able to offer you on this. The rest is up to you.

There is some muli-Pligg info if you'll Google that.

Question: "submit" a page with no new story appears
Answer: provided by jhawkin 14 days ago
- 0 + Yeah, it didn't work at all for me. I'm wondering about the Google ad stealing the focus from the submit.

Can someone explain to me how sites that don't work yet can already have Google ads running there?

Here at my shop the rules are:

1. Buy a decent domain

2. build site

3. test

4. add content

5. add content

6. add content

7. add content

8. add content

9. ads and analytics but add more content first

10. review the rules from the start after adding more content

Otherwise you're building a billboard in the middle of a desert 20 miles from the road.

Question: "submit" a page with no new story appears
Answer: provided by jhawkin 14 days ago
- 0 + And what is all that 'detritus' in the middle of your navigation bar and how did the crap list in the sidebar get there? There isn't any html tags for formatting or even telling a web browser where or how this should be presented.

You can't just open up a file, type what you wish in there, and save it expecting that to work!!!!

I'd say redo from start or hire a developer to redo from start.

Question: favicon setting
Answer: provided by jhawkin 15 days ago
- 0 + Try the meta.tpl file! I think that's right since it needs to be in the http head (not the header itself)!!!
