On this page you can find some of the most frequently asked questions about pluck, and the answers to that questions.
Pluck uses the CURL-library from PHP to check for updates from the pluck server. This CURL-library therefore needs to be present on the server you are running pluck on. Unfortunately, not all servers have this library installed. If your server doesn't have the library, the error "update check failed" will be triggered.
Well, you can ask the administrator of your server to install the CURL-library on your server. The other thing you could do is check for updates manually by checking the main website. Or subscribe to the mailing list to keep up-to-date.

A: Pluck uses a little script to convert all normal themes to rtl (right-to-left) themes. This script is very clever and will convert 99% of the themes successfully. However, sometimes themes are just not build for rtl-support, and despite the successful conversion, they will not show up the way they should. If you think you can fix the error yourself, you can take a look in the themedirectory (data/themes/*themename*), where you can find the rtl CSS-file (it's named style-rtl.css).
A: That's actually not a problem with pluck. We can confirm that the default theme is converted to rtl 100% correct. However, some browsers just can't display the website right. Internet Explorer for example, will display the site weird. Firefox, Opera, Konqueror and Safari have been reported to render the site right.

A: A license? Not needed! Pluck, licensed under the GPL, is completely open source! This means that anyone may make whatever changes to the source code, and afterwards may also redistribute it, all for free. Commercial redistribution is also allowed.
The GPL however clearly states that copyright notices may not be removed. So the link at the bottom of your administration center must stay intact. We'd like to have some credit for our work.
