What is Pligg?

It's an open source content management platform that allows you to create a social network website where users submit and promote content, vote on stories and interact with each other.

The reason why Pligg social networking software is so popular is because it's easy to get a site up and running without getting lost in configuration options. In other words, it's the perfect solution for those with little technical knowledge who want to create their own community website without too much hassle.

With Pligg you can enjoy:

  • A huge library of modules
    The Pligg community has helped create a huge library of modules that you can use to enhance the look and functionality of your site without needing to change any code.
  • Advanced Comment System
    Similar to voting on stories, users can also rate comments posted by other users aside from adding their own comments. This influences the way the comments are displayed as only the best ones will appear at the top.
  • Multiple language support
    When you install the Pligg social networking software, you'll first need to choose a language for your newly created site. You can install it in any language of your choice depending on your location and preferences.
  • Voting on stories
    Pligg lets users interact by allowing them submit and vote on different stories, news, articles, videos, images and any other type of content added by its members. The content that receives the highest number of votes is features on the homepage of your Pligg website.

Ready to get voting? Build an awesome social networking site with Pligg software and also enjoy the benefits of having your site hosted on 123-reg, the leading hosting provider in the UK.
