    Pligg 1.0.0 RC4 Released Discuss Here

    We thought that the RC3 release would be the final release candidate version of Pligg, but a new security feature ended up causing a lot of problems so we decided to release RC4 to fix that bug and a few others that have been discovered and fixed in the last week.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    What's New
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    • New Group Admin page from the admin panel. (related post)
    • A lot of Wrong Referrer fixes. This is the main reason for the RC4 release.
    • Clicking the modify story from submit step 3 now prefills the data from step 2 so you don't have to enter it again.
    • Fixes for allowed HTML tags
    • Login will now apply to both www. and non-www. urls. Previously logging in from www.domain.com wouldn't log you in to domain.com and vice versa.
    • Fix for ampersand (&) used in categories

    This list is just a brief outline of some of the larger changes made since the last release. Several small changes have been left out. For a complete changelog we suggest checking our SVN logs or reading the Pligg Twitter page.
    You can also follow the bugs on the Pligg Projects page.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Installation and Upgrade
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Please see the readme.html file included with the release for the most up to date and detailed instructions for installing and upgrading Pligg.
    Upgrades are still not 100% worked out for those wanting to jump from the Beta series to the 1.0 series. The upgrade process should work fine, but we haven't yet made some changes to the database to re-organize the configuration settings (see: Admin Settings Buggy after upgrade from 9.9.5 to 1.0 | Pligg CMS Projects). You might also see some error messages that you may be able to just ignore.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Support
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Should you find any bugs please make sure that you have properly configured Pligg by researching it on the Pligg Forums. If you feel that the bug discovered is legit please submit the bug to the Pligg Projects page:

    The wrong referrer was driving me nutz! LOL I'm going to put RC4 through its paces the new few days.

    Upgrade was easy, I zipped up the files and just 'unzipped' using cPanel's file manager. I didn't have to do anything except backup my config/db file.

    Thank you guys!

    Just a reminder that it will overwrite the language file, so you might want to back that up or any customized template files.
    Reminder: you should always back up your database and files prior to upgrades.

    real quick, on the RSS Import (awesome feature btw) is there a way to change the drop downs: "link_field1", "link_field2", "link_field3" etc... to something that matches the rss field?

    Backup your old files (you can use the built-in pligg backup utility). Confirm that the backup files and database are legit. Then upload the new files over the old ones, overwriting everything. If you made any changes to the language file or template you will need to compare the /languages/lang_eng.conf files and the template files and make the appropriate changes again.
