Pligg Doesn't Verify The Bookmark

edited May 2013 in Feature Requests
I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but when I'm running an imported (regardless of imported) list of Pligg sites, GSA will sometimes count the URL as "verified" when it finds it on the homepage or the 'upcoming' page. An example of a verified URL I got (I got a LOT like these) is the one below:

It sees my actual bookmark page, but since it finds the domain on that upcoming.php page, it stops there and doesn't verify my actual bookmark page.

I still haven't grasped the whole script engine yet, so maybe someone else could attempt to make GSA go one extra step further and verify that bookmark page instead of stopping at upcoming.php? It would be something like %Website_title% for the macro.

EDIT: So after taking a look into the Pligg Engine file, I did comprehend the verify section more. It seems as if "verify search detail url=1" is not always working. What is happening is that it sees my bookmark page on upcoming.php, and instead of following the rules of "verify search detail url=1", it simply stops there and says that upcoming.php is the verified URL. Any ideas @Sven?

    Well if that detail URL discover failed, it has to take the upcoming.php page. However that page seems very slow too me and that might be the reason that the Read More link timed out and the result is what it is.

    I also noticed that SER is not giving the actual story URL.

    Would it not be better if ser searched for the title of our bookmark and not just simply rely on the upcoming page, or grab the story.php URL from the upcoming page?

    @Sven - Is that how it works? I have about 950 successful Pligg sites and there's at least 20+ upcoming.php ones (I'm pretty sure there is more, but I didn't actually count). Seems a bit coincidental to have that many timing out don't you think? And regardless if the bookmark page itself is timing out or not, couldn't you just grab the bookmark page (the story.php) from the HTML source on the upcoming.php page? You know 100% sure that the anchor text is a backlink on the bookmark page, so you can assume it's there without even loading the page and worrying about timeouts.

    @Trevor_Bandura - Yeah that's what we are discussing. I would like to see it grab that bookmark URL as well.

    @Sven - I noticed you updated the Pligg engine to try and cope for this error, but it didn't help my results any :(. If you would like, I can send you my Pligg list and the results I am getting. So far about 80% of them are "upcoming.php" or the search for a Tag page -- both of which have my bookmark URL on the page, so I don't see the issue of just grabbing that URL and naming that the 'verified' link instead.
