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.

Can you insert a module in another module?  I was requested to insert a PayPal donation option (which is a module) in the top banner of our website.  Is that possible?  I don't see a way to get that to work.  Can the PayPal donation function be set up as something other than a module so it would work?  Thanks.

I have a customer who wants to convert her joomla site to wordpress and has asked to find out how much it would cost to do so. I have no idea at all so I can't setup a Gigs request since I have no budget idea in mind. As such my question is two-fold: 1) can those plugins for wordpress convert a joomla site to wordpress (and how well does it work)? 2) how would I go about determining how much a conversion would cost without using a conversion plugin? She does not want me to share her website URL yet. I know that would be helpful but at this point, I can't go against her wishes. Thanks!

I have a compromised joomla 1.5.26 website that needs to be upgraded to joomla 3.x.x.  
The problem is the template was taken from the Artisteer website, with no indication of
the name/number of the template.... I can use something like migrateme for the upgrade to
joomla 3.x.x, however, how do I upgrade the template to be compatible with joomla 3.x.x.  
Is it possible to manually upgrade the template, so that it 'looks' the same as the website does now?

I am trying to move a website to a new Linux server.  The Server has Apache httpd service running.  I have unzipped the home directory of the site to its original folder which is /home/user1/www.websitename.com/web/httpdocs.  The files are below this.  I am not able to browse to the website when I connect to the folder.  How can I get this to work?

Hi All,

I inherited a Joomla 1.5 site.  Within the site, we have a training section and menu is broken.  
Joomla broken menu screenshot.  

Everything else on the site seems to work.  All the other menus work fine in the other sections.  I tried clearing out the cache and creating a new menu module for the site and that did not work.

Thank you for all of your help in advance

Previously, when i wanted to look at a page on my own site, i would 'disable' the hit counter by doing, e.g.

http://technojeeves.com/index.php/aliasjava1/109-stack-trace-to-string?limitstart=1

Now using Joomla! 3.7.5 Stable i find that this query string simply produces a page not found. Can you tell me how to continue to suppress hit count incrementation?

We tried to get google analytics included in a joomla website.  Had it in there from before, so just tried via plugin to insert a new google id code.  Broke website.  I tried commenting out the line- didn't work.  I tried defining the variable in configuration.php - didn't work.  Restored site from backup, but that didn't fix it.  This is for a small non-profit website.  We also recently upgraded joomla versions.
Thank you,
Laura

Hi experts,

I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask, but I am stressing out big time as I just messed up the homepage on our site.  

I am using Joomla and we have a "Homepage callout" area on the frontpage.

Previously it looked like this - http://imgur.com/a/Pn1qd

Now it looks like this - http://imgur.com/a/So12z

Would anyone have any idea how I could restore it or recreate the button to appear like the original format?  I can't even seem to position the button to the right of the text without it getting all messed up, let alone have the blue background.  I am so clueless.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.  Thank you!

I am looking for an extension to Joomla!
The goal is that registered users should simply be able to post a one (or two) lines of text.
So the forum should simply show the list of such texts, ordered chronologically (newest first).
This will serve for our Bridge's Club : members should be able to post a message like "I am looking for a partner next monday"
Then another member seeing this, answer for exaemple "Okay for me"

I thought that Kunena was the extension to use for that so I installed it, but if it is the good tool, I don't know how to simplify the publication process etc...

Hi,
I would like to move a site from Joomla to Wordpress.
They currently have  750 users and these users have pages that are available to them upon logging in.
So if I transferred the site from Wordpress to Joomla, what would happen to the users and their security settings.
I wouldn't want them logging in from /wp-admin or /wp-login I would want them logging in from a proper login page.  And what I need to know is, if they log in (using the same credentials from Joomla) would then then see the password protected pages, or would you have to set up the pages they see using a third party plugin?
I know you can password protect a page in wordpress, but these users all have different passwords, so how would this all work.
Can someone please help me understand what would be the best way to do this?
Thanks

When you view the source of a joomla page from the browser,  iframe details can be seen as below.
<iframe      id="blockrandom"
       name="iframe"
       src="http://something.com:8080/somefolder/somephp.php"
       width="100%"
       height="500"
       scrolling="auto"
       align="top"
       frameborder="0"
       class="wrapper">
</iframe>

Open in new window

I dont want the value in the src tag to be seen in this fashion. Is there a way to hide it?

Hello!

I have a WARP6 template with K2 installed. I'm having a problem with not being able to open a full sized image if I use widgekit lightbox or SigPlus gallery (same result). Once I click on thumbnail, I get a re-sized (SMALLER about 50%) version of a full image. So the only way to see a full image is to go to "View image" option. But it's not the way it should be, let alone that my site visitors probably won't even know about this option.
So my question is how to cancel re-sizing, so my images would be shown in FULL size?
