    Before Hotaru CMS, I was with Pligg. However, Pligg is too expensive for me, because most plugin is not free and it is not as user friendly as Hotaru CMS.

    So I was searching for other Digg-like script via Google search and found Hotaru CMS.
    On my first installation, I was given a pack of plugins which might cost me more than $100 in Pligg. I was so lucky that I found Hotaru CMS before investing too much on Pligg.

    Another great thing about Hotaru CMS is the support I received in forum. Nick is just like a 24/7 support robot and friendly. So, thumbs up for Hotaru CMS :D

    I was Googling for an alternative to Pligg or Drigg. Started reading about hotaru and it sounded perfect.

    I used Pligg in many sites but devasted by the resource. I have to pay high price for important modules. We should wait more than 3-4 months for free templates but i get everything same in hotaru for free and its easily expandable.

    Thank you.

    + Every now and then, serious security vulnerabilities are being discovered in Pligg.

    I Googled for social bookmarking platforms for my site. I discovered Hotaru, Pligg and some others but Hotaru seemed the friendliest. I launched my web site www.recipe-saver.com rather quickly using Hotaru and I'm very pleased.

    I Googled for Digg like website CMS. I found Pligg and Hotaru . I started coding over pligg but soon found that it's not so easy and it has too many bugs. I think I was impressed by the pligg website design.Later I just moved to hotaru. This CMS has more features than pligg.

    Suggestions :

    1) I think Home page of Hotaru website has to be changed. You may need to include the list of features.This CMS has all set of features but for a new visits it is very hard to find. Please have a look at Simple Machine Feature Page Here

    2) You may also provide details of spam control features of the CMS. Pligg is spammy.

    I was looking for a Digg like platform which is easy to extend. My first stop was with Pligg, then after some further investigations I came across Hotaru. Now, I am trying to get familiar with Hotaru.

    Man, how did I discover Hotarucms? Is was certainly love at first sight when we finally met, but how did we meet? It was simply destiny. I have come here after many weeks of failure after failure at the hand of evil Drupal, wanker Joomla! and buggy Pligg. It was only three days ago when I finally saw my error and embraced Hotareucms--thank God for the chance meeting! I am happy now and busy at work building some thing small for my self and community. Thank you all for the sweet plug-ins that are now making my life livable again, thank youuuu brothers and sisters.

    Hi there, I happened across Hotaru just surfing the web. I was so impressed I did a view source to see the name of the software (this before I noticed the Hotaru link on the bottom :) ). Great software, innovative design, fast and efficient. Thanks!

    After hours of research and several headaches later. Tried pligg and quickly bailed from that project. Found this site and dove into this cms. So far it this is the exact solution I was looking for.
