  • Special considerations to make your Joomla site secure

    Joomla, as most CMS's excells by making it easy to manage a website page. Offers a pretty easy way to manage Web-based publishing, format management, history editing and version control, indexing, search, and retrieval. Joomla has an impressive suite of features, but these features require some special considerations.

    The most comprehensive analysis of trends in the website security finally is out. There are couple of interesting fact worth highlighting.

    Most important is something we expected: Joomla is emerging as the most secure CMS.

  • The mail function has been temporarily disabled on this site

    After upgrade to Joomla 3.2 from previous Joomla 3.* versions you might see the above error message in the backend, or, worse, you simply don't receive any e-mail notifications you usually do. And the site worked just fine before the upgrade!!

    If you have registration enabled, or you use the site to interact with your visitors/customers the side effects can be really damaging - nobody gets any mails - and you evend don't see any notice about, until you began to dig for the causes, and, for example, try to send a message for yourself from backend. This potentially can roun your online business or community. Apparently everything is OK, all settings are correct, but the mails are simply not sent.

    What's the cause and, more important, how you can fix it?

  • The Smart Search core extension

    Being disabled by default, this very powerful new core component shipped with Joomla 2.5 remains unnoticed by many Joomla site owners. It's time to began to use it and unleash the power hidden here.

  • This File type is not supported

    Have you ever seen this error message? Yea, correct it's seen in Media Manager when you try to upload files of certain types, as a MP3 file to use with your brand new MP# player module, or an Excel sheet to share whit your visitors.

    Embarrassing. Let's get rid if it!

  • When searchengine robots are hammering your site...

    SEO is good. SEO is great. Making search-engine spiders visiting your site is even better! Or not??? Recently one of my client has complained, that he was almost banned from one host, because the search-engine bots where "hammering" - read overloading - the server. Ouch...

  • When the Joomla site is offline, only Super Users can log in

    A client of mine asked this question: "How can I allow registered users to log in and see the site even in offline mode, without giving them Super user privileges?"

  • Who is the real author?

    The Joomla has a nifty, often used feature, along other information can show the content item's/articles author name just below the title. It's useful especially when the site is maintained by a number of editors and/or contributors. But sometimes - especially when the site is just launched - all authors are the same.

  • Why my Joomla site is this slow?

    Joomla generally is running at an acceptable speed -  users aren't seeing differences between an average Joomla site and another CMS'es. But what if they do? What can cause the (sometime unbearable) slowness of some Joomla sites?

  • You are not authorised to view this resource

    Sometimes when you publish a new menu item, and everything seems to be OK, when you try to access the new menu item you just created you hit the wall: instead of the intended content you'll see the following error:

    You are not authorized to view this resource.
    You need to login.

    Even more confusing can be the situation when a link which used to work behaves this way. The target content item is published, access rights are set to Public, and you still got this message! What can be wrong here?
