On the last Pligg (1.0.3.b), you'll have to develop a php 5 script, running onto my pligg host.
All configuration data must be easy to change, and putted into an separate config file. All scripts must be into their own directory and should be independent of pligg version. I mean, if i update Pligg, scripts must still work. Of course an upgrade can broke these scripts.
No auth system is needed, an htaccess will be enough.
Don't ALTER mysql database or add a new table please.
1) Create account
One script will create several account onto my pligg. No email confirmation is needed of course.
User Name will be taken into a txt file like this :
2) Add a story.
A config file will have some RSS feeds (one url per line).
You'll get all story into these feeds. This script will be run each day, so feel free to use only "yesterday" news.
With all theses news, you'll put them into Pligg. You'll randomly choose them. A news can be published 15 to 30% (15 to 30% will be into config file).
Title is news' title
Content is an extract of news'content (lenght is near 500 characters, 500 is into config file).
Tags are matched from metatag keyword of news'story
Category are randomly chosen from Pligg categories.
3) Random Vote
And the last script, vote randomly for 5 stories (of course 5 is still into config file).
I'll send you FTP access to this Pligg hosting.
