Quick Start




After the installation, you will see this dashboard screen at your first sight. It’s very
straightforward. There is a login screen panel, overview panel, and quick access panel.

You can browse to other screen by select on different tabs on top of the dashboard screen. It
consists of 5 tabs:

   1.   Dashboard – overview of the Pligg-o-matic
   2.   Target Site – configuration of Target Site and associate account
   3.   Content Source – configuration of content sources; RSS or your own content
   4.   Publish – publish your content to target site + report
   5.   Options – configuration software




        5
Register Your Account


In order to increase your submission limit and save your settings, you must first register for an
account. Click Register link from the Dashboard. Simply enter your username and email and
that would be all.


Login Now!

After you got your account setup, simply login to your account through the Dashboard. Your limit will be
adjusted according to your package.

Now, you are ready to add your first Target Site!

NOTE: If you can’t click on the button, it means that there might be a popup message for IE that we
prevented you from seeing. So, to fix this issue, try to register and login via your IE web browser.


Target Sites

Target Site is a Pligg site that you will submit your content to. Select the second tab called “Step 1:
Target Site” to manage your target site. In addition, the associate account will be managed on this tab
too.

To add your first target site, click on the root of the tree
where it says “# Target Sites [# Active]”.

Enter Site information such as Title, URL, Register Page,
Login Page, and Submit Page. The latter three are pre-
defined, but you can adjust it to suit your need.

Click Add Site to add your new Target Site to the tree. If you need to change the setting of the Target
Site, click on its node, make changes, and click Save. Remove Site can be used to delete the Target Site.

NOTE: Unselected node will be skipped during the publishing process.




       6
There are three buttons under the tree panel; Save All, Reload All, Delete All. These options interact
with the database. For example, Save All will save all Target Sites and Associate Accounts to the
database. Please be sure to save it before you Reload All to prevent data lost


User Account

Next step is to add an associate account. Click on Target Site’s node in the tree. Enter username,
password and others, and then click Add Account. You can change the account setting by selecting its
node.




      7
When you add an account using this functionality, the software assumes that you already have an
account at the Target Sites. If not, you can choose to register the account manually by clicking on the
Register Manually link on the left of Add Account button.

If you don’t want to register the account manually, it’s a good idea to go the next section to find out
about auto registration.


Account Auto Registration

It’s ideal for everyone to automate this task. However, it’s quite difficult because there are many issues
relating to the auto registration process. The most boring blocker is CAPTCHA. So, we are trying to help
you decoding them. Please keep in mind that we are not 100% guaranteed that this software will be
able to break the Captcha. At least, we just give it a try.

So, let’s look at the auto registration options we got.




You can let the software automates the creation of username, password, and email for you. Select Auto
Generated option to do just that. However, if you have a list of those inputs in your mind, you can
simply create a list of them in text file with one line per item. Then select the text file from the “…”
button at Randomly selected from option of that input.




       8
IMPORTANT: username, password, and email must be in a separate text file with one item per line!

If you want to use username, password, and email from Account Group box, you must mark on the Use
account details from the Account Groupbox above to register checkbox.

Then you have an option to change the number of account you want to register.

You can also choose to register an account for a particular Target Site or all of them.


Content Source

Content source can be chosen between RSS feed and your own content. To add a new content source,
click on the root node of the tree. Choose source type, enter information, and click Add.

For tags textbox, you can enter multiple tags and use colon ( , ) as a separator. For example,

        Pligg-o-matic, FREE download Pligg-o-matic, FREE SEO Tool

For categories, you can also enter multiple categories with colon ( , ) separator. For example,

        SEO, Internet, Marketing, Computer & Internet

NOTE: The software will try to match your defined categories with the Target Site. However, if nothing is
matched, it will pick the category for you.




Publish




       9
After you finish configuring all above, it’s
time for your first publish. Navigate to the
third tab called “Step 3: Publish”. Click on
START button to start the publishing job.

You can easily pause or stop the publishing
job using the other buttons available after
the job started.

The report will show you the details of the
publishing result. Its friendly GUI can help
you determine if your content is failed or
succeeded.

The green check mark indicates the
successful content submission.

The red cross mark indicates the failure
content submission. It should also include
the detail of that event.

NOTE: This may take a while to finish.
Therefore, just relax and be ready for your
higher traffic in the next hour!




Options




     10
In the Options tab, you can configure the proxy servers. Entering multiple proxy servers is allowed by
using semicolons ( ; ) to separate the entries. The server will be randomly selected for each content
submission.


Version Control
In the Options tab, you will also notice a Version panel on the right with some Version Control
information.




Here are details for each item:

    •   Version – Pligg-o-matic software version
    •   Package – your package of this software (cooler package means higher submission limit)
    •   Target Site Limit – the total number of Target Sites you can add
