  • Installer tabs missing after upgrade to Joomla 3.6

    After upgrading to Joomla 3.6 I had a nasty surprise - in the Joomla Installer the tabs - Install from file,  Install from folder etc.., all but the Install from Web - where all gone. Of course, nothing found on the web: this happens when you are an early adopter. But I discovered the "fix" accidentally, on my own.

  • The 301 redirect

    Just upgraded from a static site to Joomla? Or just reorganised your content? And, of course, you don't want to loose your existing Google PageRank and your external links...

    What you can do?

    301 redirect is the most efficient and Search Engine Friendly method for webpage redirection. It's not that hard to implement and it should preserve your search engine rankings for that particular page. If you have to change file names or move pages around, it's the safest option. The code "301" is interpreted as "moved permanently". This is the solution Google recommends for webmasters to keep their ratings.

  • Vulnerable extensions list

    Even most of security-conscientious Joomla webmasters aren't knowing the existence of this list, maintained at Joomla docs site. There are listed all components with known security problems, and very important to know, the items once appeared on the list aren't removed when the problem is fixed, because large majority of Joomla webmasters aren't upgrading their site as new versions are coming out for the add-ons used. So worth checking, even if the components you use are listed on GREEN - aka fixed -, you may run in trouble, because hackers are knowing the list - and are pro-actively seeking Joomla sites using the insecure add-ons. So you will become easily a target even if you have the secure version...

  • Where is Yoda Professor?

    Yoda Professor

    PATIENCE YOU MUST HAVE my young padawan

    Worry, do not, there Yoda Professor is! His old identity just hiding behind. Dark force - Google Authorship - to blame is.

    But still with you, the Force is! Browse around, young padawan, and you need find the help!

    In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way.

    If you end your training now — if you choose the quick and easy path as Vader did — you will become an agent of evil. You must unlearn what you have learned. You will find only what you bring in.

    Always pass on what you have learned.

    You will know when you are calm, at peace. Passive. A (Jedi) Joomler uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.

    May the Force be with you.
