Pligg Support

I have worked on some changes to Pligg files to better accommodate the switch of languages, in this case the Arabic language. It is done in a way that will make any change/addition to the files very easy to carry on in case of an update to Pligg (assuming that Pligg developers did not have time to implement the modifications and the recommendations I submitted.)

The attached zipped files are as follows:

1- A JPEG image to show the before and after the modification.
2- Simple Messaging lang_arabic.conf to be saved in "\modules\simple_messaging"
3- An HTML file of the "\languages\lang_english.conf" (showing the modifications to the translation, as well as the new Constants added to accommodate the changes.)
4- An HTML file of the "\languages\lang_arabic.conf" (showing the modifications to the translation, as well as the new Constants added to accommodate the changes.)
5- An HTML file "Language Config - Usage in Files.html" It is a complete mapping of all the "lang_english.conf" Constants, showing in what pligg files they are used and the Line number.
6- pligg-fixes.html, the step by step process of modifications

Note that some of the steps are applicable to all languages, therefore I encourage everybody to read the "pligg-fixes.html" file.
Hey all,
I was wondering if its possible to add a badge or icon, similar to twitters verify check mark (see attached). Anyone have any idea how this could be done? Thanks in advance!

I'd like to make the category menu highlight the category selected just like Popular and New highlight when selected. I've been poking around the style sheet and I can't seem to find it. I'm using bootstrap.
Whenever I try to follow a member by clicking on the follow button I get an error message and I'm unable to follow any member. The message say:

The page you were looking for doesn't exist!

I search for members to follow then click on follow and the button doesn't work or send notification to the member that I'm following the person.
I am working on the adding friends and sending private message issues referenced in:

I was able to fix a lot in the logic of the code and got good result. However, In order to be able to fix it completely I need to understand the logic of following and followers, therefore I need your help.

Following is when we add a user.
Follower is when a user adds us.

Now, the way I see it is as follows:

If "A" follows "B" and "B" follows "A" then they can message each other.

Otherwise, they can't and an option to accept (follow) the user will be provided.

Is that correct?

Any other feedback will be appreciated to perfect the system!
Hello again people.
Is there are any way to support animated GIFs (avatars) in pligg? I noticed when a user uploads an image it always changes its' format to jpg. How can i change this?
