Joomla

Joomla is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS. Written in PHP, Joomla uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques and software design patterns, stores data in a MySQL, MS SQL  or PostgreSQL database, and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, search, and support for language internationalization.

I have the www.cbwsl.be site, hosted by OVH
In the OVH admin, I created an emailbox cbwsl2018@cbwsl.be
Sending email to this address is okay, it is correctly delivered and I can read it
Now on my site is Joomla! latest version installed
I now also want email to work from there
I tried several email settings and "test email" : message is displayed that a test mail is sent, but it does not reach the emailobox

My Joomla! installation is updated.
Since 1st of January 2019 it shows a warning saying that the PHP version is too old.
So I switched (OVH site, very easy !) to version 7
But now the add-on JCE Editor does not work anymore, its PHP code crashes.
I found on forum that it is due to code not more accepted by PHP 7.
So I had to rollback
Anyway to fix JCE problem is welcome

I am looking for a good Joomla! extension that I will be able to use to create forms.
User should be able on the form to select a date in a calendar, and name in a proposed list (list to be feeded from a text file)
Then user also enters a security code (a kind of password) and a formatted email is then sent to a specific email address
Which extension is suitable for enabling that ?

I am looking for a working example (PHP code and also I presume SQL stuff) of how to update an existing article on a site where Joomla! is the running software.
Practically, I have an existing article but I want from time to time to programmatically update his content and his title.

Hi,
 In order to speed up my Joomla site, I need to combine/compress my JS files. So far I have been able to call my 2 custom JS files from my Joomla template the same way the rest of the JS files are called in the template; however, I noticed that my JS files only work if jQuery UI 1.12.1 is loaded.

The issues I need to resolve:

Joomla uses jQuery UI 1.9.2, and my JS files are only working if I load jQuery UI 1.12.1 separately.

I'm using a plugin to load that version, but when I try to compress all my files, the 2 custom scripts stop working.

I am trying to avoid using a plugin to load jQuery UI 1.12.1 so, first, I need to find a way to load jQuery UI 1.12.1 from my JS file directly. I looked at this information here  but I don't know how to implement this into my files.

I'm hoping that after I'm able to load jQuery UI 1.12.1 from my files, I should be able to compress/combine them.

Testing site: https://branson.vacationpeople.com/resorts/westgate-branson-woods-resort.html

The sites is working because it is not compressed and I'm loading jQuery 1.12.1 separately

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jorge B.

Hi, could somebody please help me with this issue?

I started having problems loading a script on my site that I use to load a booking calendar, and I no longer see it working (no room type or any of the other functions it used to have . I get an error on the web console that I haven't seen before, so I guess if I can get this resolved everything should work again.

I have a few hotel pages on my site and they all use the same script. Here is one of these pages:

https://allinclusivepromotions.com/cancun-mexico/villa-del-palmar-cancun-resort.html

I have attached the js file referred on the error.

Please help.

Thanks,

What is the best strategy for presenting user-specific content to registered users on a Joomla 3.8 site?

Example:

1. A main public domain, say, 'mydomain.com' displays full menus with all links going to sample content on a Joomla 3.8 site hosted on a VPN with WHM and CPanel
2. A new user decides to register, say, as 'user1'
3. Upon creating his registration the user is redirected to a subsite of the main public domain to which he has access and can provide or request access for 'friends'
4. His subsite, say, 'user1.mydomain.com' or 'mydomain.com/user1' now contains content which is specific to this user (which this user will progressively populate, e.g. add his pictures, articles, etc.)
5. Hundreds to thousands of users would be expected to join 'mydomain.com' to enjoy their own personal 'userNNNN.mydomain.com' subsite

Questions:

It's not clear to me how to structure such a site using a Joomla 3.8 CMS:

Approach A.  I could have one main joomla site and create a unique access level for each new user and all links and content dependent on that unique access level for each user ... not a scalable approach

Approach B. I could replicate a user-specific joomla site for each unique user from the main 'mydomain.com' joomla installation ... also not a scalable approach since any code changes to the main site's code (e.g. feature add) would then need to be carefully injected into each unique user's site as well as the sheer bulk of code.

So ... what's the …

Having issues with resume upload parsing page:

http://ablcareers-dev.cloudaccess.host/search-abl-jobs/resume/013947 as an example

When a user clicks to upload their resume, and selects CONFIRM INFO, the page refreshes after a couple of seconds and it appears as if no data has been processed.

Code is below, simple file upload and script. Working with Joomla.

<form class="uk-form"  name="frmMain" method="post" id="frmMain" enctype="multipart/form-data">
	<input type="hidden" name="jobId" value="<?= $this->jobID ?>" />
	<input type="hidden" name="email" value="<?= $this->email ?>" />
	<input type="hidden" name="action" value="resume" />


           <input class="form-control  uk-form-large uk-width-7-10" id="filResume1" type="file" name="filResume1" /> <button class="uk-button-primary submit uk-button" >Confirm Info</button>
           <label class="error" for="filResume1"></label>
           <button class="noresume uk-button uk-button-primary" >I  don't have a resume</button>
		   <p style="font-size:12px">No Resume? No Problem you can still apply manually</p>

	
	
		<p id="spProcessing"></p>

	
</form>

<script>
jQuery('.submit').click(function() {
	jQuery('#spProcessing').text('Processing resume ............... ');
	jQuery('#frmMain').submit();
});
jQuery('.noresume').click(function() {
	jQuery('#frmMain').submit();


});
</script>

There are no errors in the console, and I cannot figure out what may be the cause of the issue.

Would the PHP / MySQL version possibly affect tthe functionality of this?

Any insight would be helpful,

Thank you!

Can you please guide me on creating a video on the home page just like the one in the link below . I have a joomla website. It would be nice for a plug in to do this. I have some video that I can use, but I don't know what has to be done. I am not a web guy myself, but work with someone that works with joomla , but  he is not sure how to get this done. It looks like it's on some type of slider but it does not move. Also, not sure how they got the video to be dark blue. I now days  see a lot of this on websites home pages. An extension would be nice.

To activate some paid themes or plugins for websites (cms), buyers need a code. Otherwise the addons are not activated. I'm interested by this functionnality, but i have no idea where to start. Can someone point me in the right direction ? I have some addons and also websites for demo purpose, but i need to protect them. This kind of addons i'm talking about, need a code only once. Then the addon/website or whatever is accessible for everyone.
 I'm using php/css/html/javascript. The passcode/key protection i'm looking for is used by plugins and graphic themes sellers. To ensure the buyer has paid the addon and/or don't use it more than once. The target cms are wordpress, joomla, magento ...
Thank you.

Regarding Joomla: Before I install & start playing with Joomla, can anyone recommend some reading (online or book) for someone who wants to learn JOOMLA who already knows Wordpress, PHP coding, MVC Framework, Web Apps, Linux command line, Servers, etc?

In my Joomla template the field that shows user chosen states and countries is: <?php echo $field->value;?> <?php } ?> from code below:

ON the front-end the result looks like:

Arizona,Colorado,New Mexico,Oklahoma,Texas, Germany,New Zealand


I need all states and countries to be in a list and also represented graphically. Perhaps, there is a grayish image of the world, and Arizona,Colorado, etc are selected somehow. It needs to be light, so I was thinking of using CSS, but perhaps someone has other ideas, like Google KLM. I do not have the graphics set for the Staes and countries. MY countries and states list used on the site is attached below.

sample page where this will be used, look at "swap for": http://tradeproperty.org/index.php/listing/listing-with-all-fields-or-most
that area is about 400-500px wide and can be tall. You can use php, CSS, javascript.



<span class="label label-default"><div class="editlinktip hasTip" title="<?php echo $field->field_label;?>::<?php echo $field->field_description?>">
														<?php echo $field->field_label;?>
													</div></span>
												<?php
												}else{
													?>
													<?php echo $field->field_label;?>
												<?php
												}
											}
											?>
											<?php
											if($field->displaytitle == 1){
												?>
												:&nbsp;
											<?php } ?>
											<?php if(($field->displaytitle == 1) or ($field->displaytitle == 3)){?>

I have a Joomla 3.6 site running on a windows server with apache 2.4.4, php 5.4.12, mysql 5.6.12 and the ttfb is approx 5s.  When loading the page resources on the server do not appear to be heavily loaded.  I converted the front page into html and it load instantaneously so I believe the issue must be with php or mysql config.  
Is there anything you can suggest that I check to improve the load time.

I'm running Joomla 3.8.7 When I make a category the default home page all the articles cut off like there was a "read more" character in the article with the exception that there is no "read more" button. I cannot figure out what I have done to cause this behavior. I've tested my process on another 3.8.7 site and things behave as expected so it's got to be something I'm doing on the current site. I'd be happy to use the new site except there is so much content to transfer. Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted. The site is dataqualitynetwork.net

HI, I am running a Joomla 1.0 site, still because I have too many custom programmed pages and I am in the middle of moving to a newer platform (but it will take me a long while). Meanwhile, my old but still active site lost it's recaptha V1 functionality as they discontinued it as of March 31. Could anyone help me update the old recaptcha files so that they still work for recaptcha V2? V2 details: https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/display
My non working registration page: http://goswap.org/index.php?option=com_recaptcha&task=register&Itemid=62 (all other aspects of the site still work)

com_recaptcha files attached for Joomla 1.0 that are installed

Hello!
I use Joomla 3.8.6 and I was trying to upgrade Virtuemart to its the most recent version. I couldn't complete an upgrade unless I switched MySQL to MySQLi type of db in Joomla's "Global Configuration". Now everything seems to be working fine with both Joomla and VM. Still, I wonder what was it and is it Okay Joomla-wise to switch to MySQLi from MySQL just like that?
