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.

This is probably more a matter of "limited time" (mine! LOL) as there may
be a simple solution in article settings etc that I have missed!

Config
Joomla v3.6.5
PHP v7.3.x
Using a (good) purchased template

created a simple article (just contains a table)
added a menu item
chose to link menu to a single article
info in menu setup matches article#
BUT when the menu is clicked - 404 error??

Suggestions?

FYI - Yes, I know Joomla is not at the newest release, if that is by chance, a factor.
It is not my site and it has not been "authorized" to update.
But this is a pretty basic Joomla function!

I am using Dropbox to distribute my software because Joomla 3.x no longer allows downloads from my website.  Can anyone recommend an alternative to Dropbox?  My file sizes are just less than 300MB.

Thanks in advance.

HP Desktop 5082vS3 (750-114) really sluggish now, mostly due to Chrome and Edge, Firefox somewhat. Really bogged down. 12 GB RAM, 64-bit PC, Windows 10 (OS 17134.523). 1.7 TB storage free ... PC probably 3 years old.

Lots of Windows / tabs open, but I do the same at work, and my no-brand gov't desktop runs fine and CPU, Memory, and Disk are all good.

I don't do anything fancy, how can I clean this up? See attached.  Not sure what "Disk Usage" is and why it's often at 100% or pretty high.

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 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.
Thanks

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,

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?
(I've never used Joomla, but a quick look over the Joomla books on Amazon didn't pop out any "Quick Start Joomla" type books that I could tell)

I use the google maps plugin in a Joomla article since 3 years
It worked fine
Now you get this message when the special tag displays the map (the map just flashes for a second then the error comes) :
Google Maps ne s'est pas chargé correctement sur cette page. Pour plus d'informations techniques sur cette erreur, veuillez consulter la console JavaScript. (site www.cbwsl.be => Accès)
Error is : "Google Maps ne s'est pas chargé correctement sur cette page. Pour plus d'informations techniques sur cette erreur, veuillez consulter la console JavaScript."
Where can I find that Joomla console Javascript to guess what is now happening ?
Thanks

I need to display a module on mobile only.  I put it on the desktop in the top right position and set the module class suffix as [space]hidden-desktop.  It does show on the mobile, but still shows on the desktop.  Is there another setting to make, so it won't show on the desktop?  Thanks.

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'm looking to understand the Joomla account activation string. It ends with 'menuid' and 'Itemid' numbers. But I've played with these, and they don't seem to do anything. I was hoping that changing these would enable me to land the activating user on whatever page I wanted, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

Here's an example:

https://site.com/component/users/?task=registration.activate&token=d0f0b518c5597e26c4bba17cf5fce984&menuid=319&Itemid=256

Open in new window


What is the purpose of the 'menuid' and 'Itemid' numbers in the Joomla activation link query string?

Thanks,
Jonathan

I'm interested in creating a Joomla extension for sending out user account activation emails. I need to know about the activation token.

The activation token appears to be hex code. The token generated when I registered my test account was 1c99b9e50f765fe8e25e2d6f8d328e78

Where does this code come from? Is it saved anywhere to the database, and/or is it created based upon info submitted by the user - or something else?

I need to know this so that I can generate it myself.

Thanks for any help!

Regards,
Jon

I have a component called com_product that I developed. For the most part, its working properly.

I am having an issue when I add a category to the component.

I can get here:
Components -> Products -> Categories -> New
Product -> CategoriesProduct -> Categories -> Edit Screen
Then, I enter the data, hit any button, but the 'Cancel' button and I get this error:
Error message.
When I hit the back button, I can then hit the Cancel button and it takes me to the category listing page.

Anyone know what I'm missing within my code to get this working properly?

Here's my product.php file that sits here: /administrator/com_product/product.php

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
