    Hi, thanks for making this.

    Unfortunately, I cannot get it to work.

    Versions: Pligg 9.9.5 with Joomla 1.5.8 (then tested again with a clean install of Joomla 1.5.7, but no luck there either)

    I have been testing locally (localhost)

    My questions:
    – When you say “install pligg in /”, does that mean it should be inside or outside the joomla folder? My Joomla folder is localhost/liberty and my pligg folder is localhost/pligg. Should my pligg folder be localhost/liberty/pligg?

    – The last plugin parameter says site url. My Joomla site is at localhost/liberty and my pligg site is at localhost/pligg. What should this parameter be?

    Well there might be some difference with the versions. I dint really test it anything after Joomla 1.5.2 and I have another person reporting that its not working on 1.5.6 and above. For now I would say, play with it a little and see if you can get it to work.
    Regarding your question on install dir of pligg. It doesnt really matter where you are installing as long as you provide correct db details.

    Try testing it online rather than local to see if it works. If you need any assistance let me know.

    to try I install this plugin in joomla 1.5.6 work perfect, but…

    1 time I made login is imposible made logout, or chage user.

    but pluggin is a good idea and work

    you mean to say, after you logged in, you cant log out? Try to login and log out from joomla instead of pligg and see if that works.

    Does anyone know how to get JPligger for 1.5 working in 1.5.9. I managed to get it to stop showing the pligg page unless the user is logged in. But once the user is logged in, it still shows this page again and the user is not recognized by pligg as having logged in.

    Also I notice that the registration link that is substituted for pligg’s registration users community builder. Is this a requirement or can a link to Joomla’s core registration be used instead.

    It would so be great if this pluggin was updated for Jooma 1.5.8 and .9 and for pligg 1.0 also. This capability is so needed in th Joomla community.

    Check your pligg DB settings again. Do you have pligg installed on a different server or same?

    CB is not required for this mod to work.

    I need a sponsor to upgrade this project to next versions.

    I havent tested it on 1.0, you can try it and see. If it doesnt and you still want this to work for your system, you can fund an upgrade to this mod. Contact me if you are interested.

    Thank you.

    Hi Boxed,

    I have already installed the Jpligger sucessfully, and it sync the DB also.

    But the problem is, when I click on “Remember me”

    It does not work, do you have any idea where I should edit it to make it work?

    E.g. The Cookie or Cache files to configure the session.

    I mean after I click that.

    And I log-in, I can’t log-out.

    I think it’s session problem.

    You should be able to logout from Joomla. Please disable all login/logout/register buttons/logic from pligg. This will use Joomla as a base.

    I have installed the jpligger on Joomla! 1.5 and Pligger 1.0 using the instructions given. When i log into pligg using Joomla! I get this syntax error
    Warning: mysql_fetch_object(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /pligg/libs/html1.php on line 258

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /pligg/libs/html1.php on line 266

    Warning: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘2,3,4,5,6,7) AND (pligg_groups.group_privacy!=’private’ OR ISNULL(pligg_groups.g’ at line 1 in /pligg/libs/db.php on line 242

    Now, when i create a user on Pligg then log in with Joomla! i do not get this error, only with users that have been created through Joomla! Any idea on how to fix this? I really think this is a great plug in, i’ve tried jfusion and it just doesn’t work as well as jpligger. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    I am interested, if you could upgrade for me jpligger to work with pligg 1.0 and joomla 1.5 and also to share the same information about the profiles of the users with the kunena forum for joomla. I would pay for it.

    Please let me know, if you are ready to do this for me.

    Thank you.

    This isnt working for me. I have

    Joomla – Version 1.5.9
    Pligg – Version 1.0.3

    I dont see anywhere to get to the admin side of pligg, it just keeps refreshing the login page. Any help would be appreciated.

    If I cannot get notices of a reply is there anyway to email me some info.

    Thanks in advance

    Now I am getting these errors and it still doesnt work

    Warning: in /home/buckeyes/public_html/plugins/user/pligg/db.php on line 86

    I am intested in sponsoring the upgrade of jpligger to work with pligg 1.1.1 and 1.2 and with recent versions of joomla. Alternatively have you considered starting some sort of fund drive.

    How much would you need to devote time to it ? If anyone else is interested in donating please say so in the comments so that the developer will see that their is enough interest to do this work. The Joomla community really needs this integration.

    The current version does not seem to work with the lastest Pligg or Joomla versions. Login fails and Joomla logout does not work if the pluggin is enabled.

    Developer we need an upgrade. How about it.
