How to Edit the CSS Styles on Gantry 5 RocketTheme Templates - A How to Edit Joomla CSS Tutorial
 
05:03
Here is how to modify the CSS for your entire Rocket Theme Template. Subscribe Today! ► https://goo.gl/Y3wTy5 Modifying the Joomla template on your site is fairly simple if you are using a template from RocketTheme.com (they have a few free ones for use as well.) This tutorial will show you how to easily change the CSS tags on your Gantry 5 RocketTheme Joomla Template. Tools used in the tutorial are: Gantry and Hydrogen Template for Joomla 3.4+ - found at: http://www.gantry-framework.org/download Here is the text of the subtitles for this video: Hi, I'm Tim Davis from Cybersalt's Basic Joomla channel. I really like the templates that RocketTheme puts out. Their Gantry 5 system makes it super easy to customize the CSS to fit my style and your style. That's what this tutorial is about. Let's head on over to the computer and check it out. Before we get started, apologies for a little bit of garbally audio in that intro; it's the first video I've used the green screen on and I'm still setting things up. But, let's get back to the point here. In order to customize the CSS of a template template using gantry 5 you first need to create a folder inside the template folder to put your custom CSS. So, let's see how to do that first. I'm already logged into my cpanel account and the file manager where this Basic Joomla site is installed and what you want to do is go to the templates folder, go into there and you want to go into the folder that has the same name of the template that you want to customize CSS for. In this case it is the Gantry 5 Hydrogen; G5 Hydrogen. Go into that folder and then you want to go into the custom folder. Now, I just want to point out we're gonna be creating a folder called SCSS there's already one that exists in the template folder, but this is not the one that we're looking for. What we want to do is go into the custom folder and then we're going to create a folder called SCSS. Once we've created the SCSS folder we're going to then go into it and we're going to create a new file this time and that file is going to be named custom .scss. And we'll create that file. Now, that's an empty file, let's get some CSS to customize and put in there. I'm going to the homepage of Basic Joomla right now, I have it set up with the default Gantry 5 page, and change the color of this font here. I'm using Chrome so I'm going to use hit f12 to bring up the element inspector and I'm going to click this arrow and scroll then we'll select this text here. We'll see that getting started is - as we see down here - it's a heading 1 and heading one here is the colored grey. Now I can click this button and I can change the color - you'll notice it will change up here - to something that I want and you will also notice that you sort of get a magnifying glass you can pick a color that's on the screen. This is great for matching up existing colors in the theme or as you're doing your work along. So why don't we just select this purple here, I'll mouse over it click on it, and I click outside of here and go back down, here we have heading one; color is purple. Now, this css, this code here, I'm just going to left click and drag and select it and go CTRL-C to copy it. Now we then go to the .SCSS custom page that we made. We're going to, right click, go edit and now I'm going to paste CSS information in there. Now, if I want to change the color of heading 1, heading 2 to that purple that we selected back here, then I would leave the CSS like this. But let's just change it for heading 1. And basically we've pasted that code in there. We'll save our changes. Now, I'm going to go quickly into the back end of the Joomla site here and click the clean cache button - I use Regular Labs' cache manager - that will clean the cache and that guarantees that now when I refresh this page heading 1 is purple. We can even close the inspector and basically you're all set up to look for other CSS that you want to customize and once you get a hold of the code that you want and set it in the manner that I just showed you you would then go back and add it to your custom .SCSS file. So there you have it; that's how to edit the CSS and a template that's being run on Gantry 5. I hope this tutorial was helpful for you. If it was why not give it a thumbs up or even subscribe to the channel? Thanks for watching and enjoying working on your Joomla sites - God bless.

How to run Joomla under SSL - A Joomla tutorial about SSL for Joomla to run under HTTPS
 
04:45
Here is how to set up Joomla to run under an SSL certificate. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH This tutorial will show you the setting you need to change to run your Joomla site under an SSL certificate and display the green padlock next to your site address under HTTPS secure connection. The pressure is really on now for websites to be using SSL Certificates. Major browsers like Google Chrome and Firefox are making it a point of letting their users know when they're on a website that isn't using a secure connection. So it's important for your Joomla site to be set up and running under an SSL certificate. The good news is there's only one or two steps that you need to take in order to set that up, but of course you also need an SSL certificate. So make sure you stay tuned to the end of this video and I'll give you a tip on where you can get an SSL certificate for free. It’s pretty simple to set your Joomla site to operate under an SSL certificate. There's basically one step to take and some people might have to take a second step, but we'll look at both of those right now. I'm logged into the backend of the Basic Joomla site and what we want to do is go to system, global configuration, click on the server tab and then go down to the option for "Force HTTPS." You'll see that's set to none right now. You can set it to "Administrator Only" but if you don't set it to "Entire Site" it's not going to operate the front end of your site and that defeats the purpose that we're trying to cure here. Now, before I click "Save" you'll notice up here next to the URL there is an information icon and when I click on it it says, "Your connection to this site is not secure." So, we will just go ahead and go "save" or "save and close" - whichever you want to do - and once that setting is applied we will notice up here on the top left, once the page refreshes, that it is now secure, it's now operating underneath a secure certificate. And for most of you that's all you're going to have to do to make your website operate underneath an SSL Certificate. Now, some of you may have put in live site information in your configuration.php file and you'll want to change that to HTTPS. To do that you would simply log into your hosting panel, or however you access the files in your web hosting account, so this is cPanel for on the Cybersalt Hosting site, file manager - find that in your cPanel - click on that, go to your configuration.php file, right click, edit and then scroll down and find where it says live site. Now, I don't usually use live site, I don't usually have it entered, but I did here for this tutorial and you see where it says HTTP, just to keep things consistent put the "S" in there - HTTPS - save and your site will be still running underneath a secure certificate but you'll have everything consistent in that. And that's basically how to set your Joomla site to operate under an SSL certificate. Now, of course as I said before, you need an SSL certificate and one way to get an SSL certificate is through Let's Encrypt and it may be available through your web hosting company with the package that you're hosting your site with. It is with Cybersalt Hosting. I'm going to put a card here and I'm also going to put an end card very soon at the end of this video so you can see another tutorial I have on how to get into Let's Encrypt SSL certificate for free.

How to Back Up Your Joomla Database Using phpMyAdmin  - Another tutorial on how to backup Joomla
 
05:38
This tutorial demonstrates how to backup your Joomla database using phpMyAdmin. We’re working on the premise here that something is wrong with your Joomla site and you can't log into the admin area and you want to make a backup of your database before you fix it. But, this method is available to backup your site at any time whether or not you can get in the backend of the site and whether or not you have extensions that you use for backing up your Joomla site. But, this is a great fall back in an emergency so let's take a look at how to do it. The first thing that you want to do is log into your webhosting account. Now I'm showing this on a Cpanel web hosting account - it's what I use on Cybersalt Hosting and it's a very common hosting platform for people to get in and manage their accounts. You login to your cPanel and then you're going to look for the section that says "Databases." And in databases - which you know may be located anywhere in your cPanel - in the databases section you'll see phpMyAdmin. So, click on that. PhpMyAdmin is a user interface to help you manage things in databases, SQL databases, on the server. Once you're in phpMyAdmin then you want to click on the database that is the database running your Joomla site. Now, here we'll see that there are three databases - I threw a couple in here. If you only have one database only one is going to show their and of course you know which one, but in this case I know that I want to backup the basicjoomla database. Now, if it ever happened that you don't know what your database is named, which is possible if someone has built the site for you and now you're trying to manage it yourself, you could go into Cpanel to the file manager. You could go to public_html folder and then scroll down to configuration.php, right click, select view and then look down the list of items that are there until you see the public $db basicjoo_basicjoomla (In this case the database that is running my basicjoomla site.) So, I know I want the basicjoomla one. We go back to the tab with phpMyAdmin, where the list of databases are, and click on the one you want in this case basicjoomla. Once you have done that you'll be presented with a list of the tables that make up the database and run your joomla site and what you want to do to back it up is click on the export tab. Once you go to export your database you'll be presented with some very basic options: a quick display only the minimal options and yes you just want to download your database in SQL format. If you click custom you can actually select which tables that you want but we're just looking right now at backing up your entire database. You also have the option to pick different formats but in this case SQL is going to work really well because if you ever do need to restore your database it uploads quickly and also if you have a super big database that can't be uploaded in one go it is easy to edit an SQL database in order to upload sections of it and overcome that hurdle. So, we've got SQL selected, we click go, it's going to put it together in a file, an SQL file, and give you an option of downloading it to your computer. Remember where you download this too just in case you really need to find it, although you can always search for SQL files on your computer. Once you download it you've got it safely on your computer. And we can view in the folder - it shows up on a different screen and I'll bring it over - and there it is, basicjoo_basicjoomla.sql And you've backed up your database and now you can go into your database or do whatever it is that you need to do to fix the database for your broken Joomla site. So, there you have it, that's how to backup your Joomla database using phpMyAdmin as found in a cpanel web hosting account. If this video was helpful why not give it a thumbs up and if you haven't subscribed to the channel please do so, that would be great. And when you do make sure you ring the bell next to the subscribe button. That will let you know when new videos have been released as soon as they're released. So until next, time enjoy using your joomla site. God bless.

How to add Google's reCAPTCHA service to Joomla
 
04:30
A tutorial on how to add Google's reCAPTCHA service to a Joomla site. This will help protect your Joomla site from spam and abuse - especially from false Joomla user accounts being created by spambots and fake form submissions. This tutorial will show you how to add Google's reCaptcha service to your Joomla site. It protects your site from spam and abuse. I'm logged into the admin area of the firewiseconsulting.com site – they are one of my clients - and we want to go first of all to Extensions and then Plugins. Once we're there, we're going to filter for all plugins that have "cap" in the title and that will bring up the "reCaptcha" one. Click on it. Now you'll see that this particular one is set up for version 1 of reCaptcha and so we're going to select "2." Now we need to get a site key and secret key for this domain. To get to the area to pick that up we'll click on the link in the description in the plugin here - google.com/recaptcha - and if you're already logged into your Google account you will be brought to this screen and you can just click on “Get reCAPTCHA.” Otherwise, you'll have some extra steps to login to your Google account. Now, this is not one of the domains that I already have set up for reCaptcha so I'm going to add it right now. Add the domain and the owners. Check it over that I typed it correct, and I'm going to leave "send alerts to owners" clicked. Everything looks good there, so now we’ll click register. Now we have the site key, copy that, put it in this field, and we have the secret key, I'm going to copy that, put that in the secret key field. I'm going to go up to disabled and enable this plug-in and go save and close. Now the site has CAPTCHA activated on it, but if we go to the site itself and click on “create an account,” you'll see that the code does not yet show up underneath the form. That's because we now need to go to System, Global Configuration, and in the Site tab we want to go down to Default Captcha and select Captcha-ReCaptcha as the default Captcha. We'll go save – on this site the cache is cleared every time I save something. You might need to clear the cache before you refresh your page - go Refresh and now we have the captcha code. When someone is creating an account they will fill out this and click the box saying they're not a robot and be able to proceed because robots won't be able to click that box. That is how to add Google's reCAPTCHA to your Joomla site. I hope the tutorial was helpful and if it was why not give it a thumbs up and subscribe to the channel. Thanks for watching. God bless.

How to Edit the CSS Styles on Gantry 4 RocketTheme Templates
 
12:10
Modifying the Joomla template on your site is a breeze if you are using a template from RocketTheme.com (they have a few free ones for use as well.) This tutorial will show you how to easily change the CSS tags on your Gantry 4 RocketTheme Joomla Template. Tools used in the tutorial are: Gantry Template Bundle for Joomla 2.5 + 3.2 - found at: http://www.gantry-framework.org/download And exTplorer file manager for Joomla found at: http://extplorer.net/files SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH ENTER TO WIN! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla I received the request from my client asking for help on modifying the CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) for a template on a site that he is building. He is using a Rocket Theme template. I really like their templates; I like their extensions. One of the things that is super about them is it’s really easy to modify the template itself by changing the CSS. In the back-end of the Basic Joomla site, I'm going to go to "Extensions" and "Template Manager" and I'm going to select the Gantry Template which I have installed. It's this default one, is free and it comes with all the extensions that are needed to run Gantry. So, I'm just going to click here, make it the default, go back to the home page here and "Refresh" and we'll see that the template has changed. Now we're set to try to change this template up. The client is wondering about how to change the "Heading 2" CSS value at tag. If I hit F12 it opens up these developer tools and if I click on this magnifying glass down here, I can then highlight different parts of the template and it will show me over here on the right-hand side which CSS is affecting what. So, I'm going to select the “Welcome header” here and when I click that we see all of the rules, with the beginning rules in the Cascade, to the final ones that are affecting what is seen on the screen. Now the question here is, how to change the size for this title? You'll see "title" is the tag and component-content-heading2, and here we see font size of 28, line-height 30, font-weight normal, letter spacing normal. So, to preview the change of the size of that font we just click in here, and make it 108. Now let's suppose that is the size you want your coding to appear on the title in the template: title component-content-heading2. Well, then you can copy these changes and paste them in a custom CSS page. Go to the back-end of Joomla and I'm going to use a component called EXTplore. It's a file explorer for within your Joomla install, and here it shows the tree of your Joomla install. What you want to do is go to the CSS folder for the template that you are modifying. We're modifying Gantry so we're going to Gantry, double-clicking there, going to go into the CSS folder and here there are some files, and we want to make a file in this folder. I'm going to click here, "new file directory," and am going to give it a name and the taxonomy for the name is the template name, then -custom.css. So, this template is actually named "Gantry-custom." We click create. And then right-click, and we'll edit that. Now it's a blank file, of course. We can head back to the home page where we have the CSS for this title font selected and I'm going to left-click and I'm just going to drag and select all of that. And now I'm going to go "control C" for copy. Now let's go back to that custom file and we'll paste in the CSS. The only thing that we've really changed in all of this is the size. We could change other things. We could change the font weight, we can even add a line to change the color. So, we don't really need this line height change, your font weight, because that's already active, we don't want to change that, we just want to be changing the size. So now I'm going to save that file and we'll go back to the site here and I'm going to refresh the page and we'll see under refresh the letters in that heading remain the same. So, if I hit F12 again, use a magnifying glass, we can select that. Now when we go over we see the CSS that is applied and when we go down we'll see that the size here is changed in this file, "gantry-custom .css." So basically, you find the CSS that is affecting this template, and how its displayed, find the code, copy it after you've made it look the way that you want it to, and then paste it in your custom CSS file. There is also a tool for Firefox called Firebug. It's an extension that you would add on to Firefox, so search for that in extensions. You turn that on also with F12. So that is a really super way to customize the Rocket Theme templates and the CSS.

Resetting your live Joomla site after a Gantry 5 Rockettheme template install takes over
 
05:01
If you are installing Gantry 5 and a Rockettheme template you may notice that your default menus get taken over and you need to reset which one is the main. This Joomla Tutorial shows you how to do just that. This tutorial will show you what happens when you install Gantry 5 and a Gantry 5 template when it suddenly takes over the main menu of your site. If you're starting a site from scratch it's not really a problem but if you're upgrading to a Gantry 5 Template with a live site it can be quite alarming when all your content disappears, and trying to figure out how to get it back. So here we are on the front page of the Basic Joomla site. I'm already logged into the back-end. First, we go to Extension and Manage; we’re going to Upload a Package File. We'll install the Gantry 5 package which I've already downloaded from the Gantry site to my computer. Once that is installed, we will see on a refresh - clean the cache - of the homepage everything remains the same because this Joomla template that I'm using is using an older version of Gantry. Next, we'll install the template. I'm going to install "Kraken," which is the most recent one. I'll upload that and once that is done and installed, I'm going to clean the cache, go to the homepage, and I'm going to “refresh.” We will see once this page refreshes that suddenly the site is taken over by the Kraken template and the Menu there, if I click Home, keeps going back to this Home template. So, here's how to fix that if you want to get your old template back to the main template so you can begin to develop and shape your new template in Gantry 5. In the backend of the site go to Menus and then Main Menu. We'll see here that there is the Home Menu, but this Home, which points to Feature Articles is no longer the Default Menu. If we switched through this drop down here to Kraken Theme - you can also go to menus and Kraken theme - you'll see there is a Home button there that points to Gantry 5 Themes Custom and it has been made the default link. So, go back to the Main Menu - or whatever menu is your main menu - find the Home button or whatever was your default link and reset it back to default so that the star is on. Clean the cache and now when we click Home it will go back to the original version of the homepage. Now you see Kraken is still the template that has taken over and if you don't want that yet for your live site the next thing to do is go to Extensions then to Templates. Go back to the Kraken Default and Kraken Home. Kraken Default is the default template; Kraken Home is assigned. We want to set Gantry as the Default one, or whatever your original template was, go back and set that one to default. We don't need to change Kraken home assigned, what it is assigned to, because it is assigned only to the Kraken menu which no one has access to on your site. When we hit Clean Cache here just to dump this out, we're going to refresh the page. Now we are back to the way the site looked before, which will allow you to go into Components, Gantry 5 Themes, and then configure your RocketTheme template through the settings in here without affecting your live site. So that's how to fix the issue of a new Rockettheme Template using Gantry 5 suddenly taking over your site, to quickly get it back to the way it was before so you can edit and work on your new template and the new look for your site. I hope that was helpful. If it was, why not give the video a thumbs up and it would be great if you subscribed. Thanks for watching. God bless.

How to Change the Navigation Bar Height CSS in Rockettheme's Gantry 5 Hydrogen Template
 
07:37
Subscribe Today! ► https://goo.gl/Y3wTy5 This tutorial shows how to change the CSS that sets the height of the top level navigation bar in the Gantry 5 Hydrogen template. Once you know what CSS changes you need to make you will need to put those same changes on your live site. The following tutorial will help you with that step: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkaBka2lJp8 I found out that since brackets are not allowed in YouTube descriptions, I could not post the CSS I said I would share during the video - sorry! In order to find the CSS that we're going to change to adjust the height of that navigation bar, we're going to be using Google Chrome's element examiner. So, I have the Basic Joomla site opened up here with the Gantry 5 template, with Hydrogen template, and I'm going to hit F12 to bring up the element inspector. What we want to do is click on this button here on the left to select an element and we're going to select somewhere up here on that menu bar. That's probably a good guess there since its selecting the whole thing and we'll look down - now we have the elements on this side and what their properties are. Now, as I look over on the left-hand side here in this code you'll see that there's a number of other options in the hierarchy here and I want to just keep highlighting till I get to the element that still is at the top and select what we want. This one "g-container" it goes right across the top but I don't see anything in here setting the same color that is there, so I go up one higher to "g-navigation" to the section. That still highlights right across and when I look over here I see here's the background color that is set. So this is probably the CSS that we want to change. So I'm going to type by just clicking here to add a new line to the CSS to test it and type "height", hit enter and then I'm going to type 40 and we'll do 40 pixels (PX). And we'll see right away, as soon as I finish typing the X, this top bar has the height that is lower. So the next thing that we want to do, though, is we need to find some other CSS to change because as you can see the white of the home menu there is a different height as well. So first of all, before moving on I'm going to left click and select this HTML because you're going to want to put that in our custom HTML page in the Rockettheme template. I'm going to copy that and we'll put it over here on another screen - I just have a notepad open - and here I'm just going to paste that CSS there and we'll get ready for a new line to paste the next things. Alright, so the next thing that we want to do is somehow change the height of this white. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to go slowly down through the HTML levels here until only that white is highlighted. I might actually get the point where I run out but here this arrow you see we can click and go to the next level. We'll highlight that - there we go we've got it. That's the active menu. So, when we click on that, look over here and we'll see here the background white color is being set there for "g-navigation, g-main nav top-level" so once again I’m going to type in there "height". We're going to add a new line - let's do the same height of course, 40 pixels, and now that white has changed in its height - so we're making progress. Again, I'm going to select all that CSS, that we've just edited, we actually don't need to repeat the background color so what we'll do is I'll bring my notepad over here and we'll paste that in there. But I'm going to take out this background color line and just delete it. We have some weird double spacing happening here but that won't affect when we paste later on. Alright, next you notice that the title "Home" is now right on the very bottom it's not at the middle of the white spot there. So, let's go down another level over on the left and select - there we go we have the "ag menu item container". We click on that and now we're looking for something that will make that whole move up and as we scroll down here we see "g main nav top level padding" Now this check check box here, we can just uncheck that and see if that has any effect on what we're working on and it does, so we're in the right area and we want to adjust this first number to remove the padding that's at the top so it can move up a bit. I've already been experimenting with this, so we're going to go and put in ".45 REM" and as we change it we see that it's centered nicely up there. So, again down here we'll just hit enter and once again we have some CSS we want to select and copy and put in our list of CSS that we've edited. And of course the final step is to take all of this custom CSS code that we've made changes to and paste that into the "custom.scss" file. -- Tutorial Theme Song "Bluewater" courtesy of http://www.freestockmusic.com Looping Background "Teal Tiles" courtesy of http://www.motionbackgroundsforfree.com #joomla #basicjoomla #cybersalt
How to Upload Files To Phoca Download
 
12:16
Phoca Download is an excellent Joomla extension. It is used for managing file downloads. This tutorial shows how to upload files to it from within Joomla's back end administrator area. In this tutorial, I want to show how to upload files through Phoca Download and assign them to a category so they're available for people to access on your website. I've logged in to the back-end of one of the sites I manage. If I click on office, we'll see the six categories that exist in the Phoca Download area of this site. This is 0 subcategories, and 0 files, but we're going to change that. I'm in the back end of that site and we're going to go to Components, and to Phoca Download. Let's just go to control panel. Now if you are setting up Phoca Download or it's already set up on your site but you need some new categories, you do that by creating a category. And of course, we would just click on this category's link right here. Click on that and you'll see here's the existing six categories that correspond to the categories already on the site. If you want to make a new category click "New" and give it the title that you want. Let's just call this "Song Lyrics," and the category would take this name. You could also make it a subcategory of an existing category. There are other options here. You could put a description of the category if you like, but that's how you create categories. It's very easy. I'm not going to save this right now; just “cancel.” We'll work with these six here. Next, once you have your categories created, you click on "Files" here in the side menu, or if you're in the Control Panel, click on "files" here. Now there's just a couple of steps that need to be done in the proper order for everything to work out. First of all we're going to add a new file to Phoca Download. So, I'll click "new" and here we have a place to put a title for the file. I have created two sample files. One is a sample word document. I'm going to title that right there for the title of it. Where do I want to make this? We'll just skip alias, that will be assigned by the software. Now which category do we want to put this in? Why don't we put it in "other" since it certainly is an "other" type file. That's great. Now the next thing to do is link this particular file to the file that would be downloaded. So, to do that, instead of typing in the name here, what we do is click "select file name" and that will open up the folders within the website where documents are stored in Phoca Download. Right now, there's only one called "user upload." But why don't we create one that will match the category that exists in Phoca Download. Now we see here it's greyed out but it's "other" so I'm going to create a folder. I click on there and create a folder within this root. Here's where things are right now within this root, and I'm going to call it "other" and I'll create that folder. Now there it is there. Now I want to upload a file that is the sample word document. It's going to upload to the folder that I am viewing and where I'm viewing is just in this Phoca Download folder, I want to put it in this other folder and this just sort of helps keep things organized in the back-end of the site. So, when I click "other" now we're viewing the other folder. It says there is no file but that's going to change in a second. Next, we'll go "choose file" and when I click "Choose File" it’s going to open a window that shows where files are on my computer, and here is an example word document that I created. I'm going to upload that now. I could click that, and click open or I can double-click and now it's there ready to be uploaded. I click "start upload." It's uploaded and now it shows up in the list of documents, "example word document.docx”. Now all I do is click on that document name and it will be put in the file name and that's all we need to do. Now there's other things you can put down here. You could put a version, an author name, authors website... these are all options for ways that Phoca Download would be used. Check those out sometime. If you want a "confirm license" - if you're going to have a license somewhere on your site where people accept that if they download this file you're not responsible for anything that happens - you could set that up and say "yes," you must confirm the license and somewhere in there we'd have to create that, so we'll deal with that in another tutorial. Basically, we can go down. You can click which user has uploaded the file or you can leave that blank. Finally, down here we get to "description" and this is where you describe like in any article or content in Joomla. So, this is a sample word document to download from Phoca Download. That's pretty much all that we need to do now and we've saved it in "other".

Regular Labs Extension Manager - Basic Joomla Tutorials
 
05:10
Some of my favorite extensions to add to Joomla installs come from the family of extensions put out by Regular Labs. In this video series we're going to take a look at each of those extensions - both the free and membership versions. Our look begins with Regular Labs' unique extension manager. So as I said, these are some of my favorite extensions to use on Joomla installs. It all begins with Regular Labs' extension manager and we're going to go get it, install it and take a look at a couple of features of it. I'm already logged into the back end of the Basic Joomla site, but first we want to get the extension so let's open up a new tab. We'll go to Regular Labs - regularlabs.com and when we get to that site we're going to go to the far right to extensions, alphabetically down to extension manager. There we go, extension manager, we're going to download - it's free - and we're going to download the free version for Joomla 3, save it to my computer (you see I've already downloaded it, making sure I have the proper folders open, but I'll replace that there. And once it's downloaded I can click out of this. Actually, we can close this tab now and back in Joomla we go to extensions, manage and install. You know how to do this so I'll just do this very quickly. We're going to upload a package file, choose it - extension manager - and upload and install it. Once the extension manager for Regular Labs is installed we go to components and we'll find it down here, Regular Labs extension manager. And here we have a list of all of the extensions that Regular Labs offers and the really cool thing is instead of going to their site and downloading them one at a time are looking for them and then doing the whole install process like we just did with the extension manager - and like you're used to with other extensions - you can now simply go down and click the extension that you want to use or check out by clicking on the install button. Now Regular Labs has a bit of a gag at the very end, a joke and it's the "What Nothing" extension. It basically does nothing, just nothing, but it's a great way for us to take a look at how to install, as an example, any of the extensions from regular labs. Simply, as I'm sure you can guess, click on the install button, start the install, and once it's installed the page will be refreshed and now we see down here that it is installed, up-to-date, and it's a plug-in. The really cool thing about Regular Lab extensions is that you can go right to the plugins or components or different parts of the extension right from the extension manager. Now, if we click on the system plugin, there, it will open up a new tab and take us directly to the "What Nothing" plug-in and like most plugins and other modules and other components and things like that, we can just click on there to go and see the settings. This is sort of a joke, again as I said, so do we want this to do nothing? Why yes. Do we want it to do something? No. How many times? This basically looks like the options, the description of what it does and advanced only available in the pro version and in the pro version it just does a lot more nothing. Anyway, you could save and close options as you're managing these plugins or extensions and then let's just go and close that, we'll go back to the tab. Then on the extension manager if ever there's one that you want to remove you can simply go to the extension manager down to the one you want to remove - so we'll remove the "What Nothing" and we'll hit the X, start the uninstall, it's finished and we're right back to where we were. So I'm going to leave it at that, but I have a question for you, "Do you already use an extension or extensions from Regular Labs?" If you do, what's your favorite one? Put it in the comments below and maybe that will be one of the first ones I review. But, if you don't use any Regular Lab extensions why not say so in a comment below and install this on your site? Check out the ones that you want to investigate and tell me which one you like a tutorial or review done on first. So, thanks for watching. I hope that you'll subscribe, hope that you'll pass this video along to others and I hope that you enjoy using your Joomla sites. God bless.

How To Create Galleries and Upload Pictures to Phoca Gallery - A Photo Gallery for Joomla
 
14:42
Phoca Gallery is an excellent photo gallery extension for Joomla. ENTER TO WIN! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests This tutorial shows how to create categories (albums) in and upload pictures to Phoca Gallery. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH ENTER TO WIN! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla Tutorial Theme Song "Bluewater" courtesy of http://www.freestockmusic.com Looping Background "Teal Tiles" courtesy of http://www.motionbackgroundsforfree.com When we look at the back-end in Phoca Gallery, let's click on categories. You'll see that in categories we have 2012 and 2013. Think of these as galleries. In Phoca Gallery you create a category and then you add images that you've uploaded to the server to each category. You can assign it to many galleries if you want. You can also create galleries within galleries for displaying your pictures. Let's create a category called "winter cars" and make it a subcategory of 2012. Within this category I have an option to put a description for the category: "Here are some pictures of cars and the wintertime. This is an example." That's basically all I need to do right now. You can always go and explore other settings that are in here like the publishing options and whatnot. I'm just going to save and close and now we've got a category for winter cars created as a subcategory of 2012. The next step is to upload the pictures that we want to include in this gallery. I'm going to click images here in the side menu, which will take me to the images window that shows what is uploaded already. This shows the flower images that are in Phoca Gallery already. But I want to upload and these images have already been assigned to categories. But this is not where I upload the images to. This can be a little bit confusing in Phoca Gallery but because Phoca Gallery has so many options, this is well worth learning the specific steps for uploading images and managing them in the gallery, because then it will really enable you to do the things that you want to do. If we want to add a bunch of images, we go to "multiple add" and now you see here we have three options: upload multiple, upload, and create a folder. Now over on the right-hand side it shows the path on your server where your images that you upload to Phoca Gallery are stored. And then you can also create different folders within the structure to upload your pictures to, so it's another way to organize them. Alright, next let's upload the pictures. I'm going to click on multiple upload and then I'm going to click “add files” and that will allow me to pick more than just one image. I can hunt and peck all of them or I can drag a box around them and upload them. Now I'm not going to upload these pictures right now because I've downloaded them with their file name from the webpage that offered these up for free but you see that name is really confusing for these files. That's not going to mean anything when I look at it a few months from now. You have a couple of options: the best option is have your files named before you upload them. For instance, ”red snow car.” You know that's going to mean something when you go to upload things. Here is "snowy street." That's also why we want to have folders set up here, so that you have things organized the way that makes sense for you. If you want to rename them quickly you could select them all, right click on one, and select rename, and then choose "snow cars." You rename that first, and as soon as I hit enter they all are named the same and they're given numbers. That's another quick way if you've got a lot of pictures from a Christmas party you could just say Christmas party 2012 or 2014, select them all, and they'll get renumbered. Now, let's go to multiple upload, add files. Just click "start upload," and these images will start to upload. When that is done, we can “refresh” and you will see now here in Phoca Gallery 2012, winter cars are there. They're not in a gallery yet but they are on the server now, and the next step is where we add them to a gallery. Alright let's just call these images "winter cars" and the alias will be assigned by Joomla. Let's add them to 2012, winter cars. Now it's going to create thumbnails for them, resize them so you have thumbnails. When we hit “save and close” you'll see a picture pop up while it's making the thumbnails. Now type a description of it, choose publishing options, and any other options that are available to do with each picture that you've loaded. Now when we go to the front here and refresh we see the three galleries: 2012, winter cars, and 2013, and when I click on winter cars, those three pictures will come up. You can open them up individually in a size that your Phoca Gallery is set for, you can go through like a slideshow looking at one, you can push play, you can refresh. #joomla #basicjoomla #cybersalt

Set Joomla Session Handler To PHP instead of Database - Joomla 🛠Maintenance Monday Live Stream #003
 
09:07
In this issue of Maintenance Monday, we look at setting the #Joomla Session Handler to #PHP instead of #Database - if your server is set up to handle that. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH Here are the links mentioned in this Live Stream: MyJoomla.com free site audit ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTuNh-Oznwg Enter to Win ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/giveaways Backing Up Your Joomla Site with Akeeba ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n43ta1bEiao What is Gzip - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gzip ENTER TO WIN! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla Hey there, Joomla fans. Tim Davis here. Today we're going to look at what to set the Session Handler to on our Joomla sites. We're just down here at the bottom of the screen in the Configuration File. Now to get there we go to System, Global Configuration, and then click on the System tab. You might see Site for tab first, but click on System. So basically, the Session is information that is set when you log in saying, "Hey Tim is logged in to the site, and so we will talk to Tim's computer." And in layman's terms there's a permission set and connections. Then once that Session is set you have in this case, 15 minutes to be doing something on the site: saving it or closing a window or calls to the server, and each time you do something the Session is reset. If you leave - in this case the way this site is set - after 15 minutes and do nothing, then the Session expires, so that if someone came walking along they won’t be able to get on your computer; unfortunately, that also includes you. There are two options right now in a Joomla 3.7.5 site of where to store the Session information. Probably by default when you set up your Joomla site it is set to Database. So, the information that records that your visit is active is stored right in your Joomla database, and that works great. But if your server or your web host is set up for it if you switch from Database to PHP then your Session information is stored in a file right on the server. That's always faster. Now the reason I haven't saved this yet is because if your web host is not set up to handle Sessions through the PHP method or through a file method then if you save this you might get locked out of your Joomla site. So don't try this unless you're sure that you can go into your control panel for your web hosting to go and edit this right in the file. Now, before I save this, we'll just look how to do that. Here's the file manager for this web hosting account and basically what I've already done in the file manager in this Control Panel, is clicked on file manager and then in the root folder that Joomla is installed you want to find the configuration.PHP file. Then when you find that you will edit it. I'm not going to open this right now but I will show you this. If you save your configuration file after switching to PHP for your Session Handler and your site doesn't work go into the file space, go into configuration.PHP, find the line in your configuration.PHP that says "public session_handler" and you will see that once you switch to PHP the handler equals "none." So, when you see public session _ handler = "none" if you want to switch back, switch that to "Database" and then save your file in your file manager and then your Joomla site will come back online. One another thing. Remember back up your site. I've got a tutorial on how to do that. Backup your site regularly because as you're tinkering around with this stuff something can happen at any time; you never know. Alright, so now we're logged in to the backend of the site here still, Session Handler was at Database, it switched to PHP, now I'm going to save it and what's going to happen is this. When I save it, I'm going to get kicked out of the back end of the site and that's why we wanted to make sure that you have access to the file manager on your web hosting because if I had not been kicked out here it had just gone black then I would have been in a bad way. But basically, when you switch the method to where your sessions are stored, you have to create a new session - you're logged out. So I can log into here and that will take us back into the site and we can go System, Global Configuration, and just for maintaining or perhaps even it's more just setting up our site here we now have changed Session Handler from Database to PHP which is the "none" method, and there it is and it stuck. So that's just something that you can do to give yourself a little bit of boost of performance in your Joomla site and a good way to set it up if your web hosting is set up for that. And so we will just wrap that up before we head to the chat to see if anybody is online with any questions. So with that completed - that part completed, once again as always, enjoy your Joomla sites and God bless you. #joomla #basicjoomla #cybersalt
How to Change the Maximum File Upload Size in Phoca Download
 
06:40
Phoca Download is a Joomla extension that manages file downloads and uploads on a Joomla website. This tutorial shows how to change the maximum file upload size allowed in Phoca Download. This tutorial will show you how to change the default upload file size in Phoca Download. I have a client that wants to upload a large file, to make it available on his site, but it is too large ... it's larger than what the limits are set at by default with Phoca Download installed and so here's how to change that. We're already logged into the back end of my client's site, and here we are in the control panel. We're going to go to components and down to Phoca Download and to control panel. Once the control panel comes up we will go to the top right corner to options, click options, and then go to uploads tab. Now here's where you can set all the parameters for controlling access, and uploads, and the size of files to be uploaded in Phoca Download. The first number of options involve a site that is allows users to log-in to the front end and to upload files themselves. If you want to enable that you could just say yes in this field and then the rest of it is self-explanatory … how many files that an individual user can have, and the maximum size of all the files that they have. So here, this is an 8-digit number, so basically 20.9 million bytes - that's 20 megabytes roughly. One megabyte doesn't exactly equal 1 million but roughly. That probably works out to about 20 megabytes. And then the user file upload size … How much they would be allowed? What's the biggest file they could upload? And it's 3.1 million here which is roughly about three megs. Do you want to enable the user to be authorized? for it to be public on the site? the language? and if someone uploads something do you want to get an email? and you would click here, and pick the user that would get the email. When something's uploaded do you want to update it with the latest version? and the option for play or preview a copy of what is uploaded. You can read all the descriptions in here. Now here we get to “maximum upload size administration” and this is where my client wants to change the amount for their file. So right now it's set for this 3.145728, which is three megabytes. He wants to upload a file that is 34 megabytes. So, what we do here is type in 36 megabytes - that's 36 million bytes - and that's okay, it doesn't have to be an exact number. If you really want to make sure that you're covered you could go to Google, ask how many bytes in a megabyte then set your number high enough to cover what is required. Here we're set for 36 million, so that would be fine. Now once I save these options my client will be able to upload a file as large as 34 megabytes, 36 million bytes. And the last option here is enable multiple upload administration. When you're uploading files in Phoca Download you can do them one at a time or you can give anyone logged in as an administrator permission to upload multiple files at a time. So, this area in the Phoca Download configuration area uploads is where you can control and set the size of files being uploaded to Phoca Download. As soon as I click save and close that number will be in there, and my client will be able to upload the large files and you'll be able to too, if you set the number high enough for the file that you want to upload… keeping in mind one last thing. The files that you upload count towards the amount of storage in your web hosting account so you might reach the maximum space allowed for your web hosting account, which may mean you're not allowed to upload anymore, or you'll be charged for overages. So, when you're uploading things, just remember to keep track of how much storage you have and what it might cost you. You may want to remove some things that you no longer need. Or maybe your site is just so popular. Then you need a larger web hosting package anyways to make space for everything that you're offering. So that's how to change the upload limits in Phoca Download and a quick tour of a bunch of other settings as well. I hope that helps you. Enjoy working on your site and if this video was helpful, why not subscribe to the channel or give a “thumbs up” or leave a comment. That would be great. Thanks for watching. God bless.

How to Fix the "Error Decoding JSON Data: Syntax Error" in Joomla When Logging into the Admin Area
 
06:37
A video tutorial on how to Fix the "Error Decoding JSON Data: Syntax Error" in Joomla. Before trying this fix, be sure to backup your Joomla database. Since, in this case you cannot login to the admin area of your site, here is how to back up your Joomla database using phpMyAdmin: https://youtu.be/fwUmn4kMIf4 In this video there is an SQL command supplied to run on your database. For your convenience, here it is for cutting and pasting: update xxxx_modules set params = '' where params like '%{""}%'; To read more about this problem and fix, it was found in the Joomla forums at: https://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?t=938292 Here is a transcript of the audio of this video: Hey there Joomla fans! Thanks for tuning in again to Cybersalt's Basic Joomla Channel. I'm Tim Davis. A big shout-out to my wife today for being patient with me fixing her joomla site that broke. A few Joomla updates ago, when we updated her site, something broke and she could no longer log into the admin area. She'd get the "error decoding json data: syntax error." That's the subject of this tutorial now, "How to fix the "error decoding json data: syntax error". Let's head on over to the computer and check it out! Since I can't log in and run any backup extensions that it uses I want to make a backup of this database because we're going to be going right into the database and running a little bit of code. Now that code that I found is in the Joomla forums in a couple of places and I'll place a link in the description below where you can go and read in one of those locations. I'm also going to place a card above, at the end of the video, and a link in the description below to the tutorial on how to backup your database using phpMyAdmin. It's really important to do that because if something goes wrong while we're running this code and you don't have a backup then your problems have just multiplied. So, the first thing that I want to show you here is that when I go to try to login, instead of the login form coming up we get this error here; "error decoding json data: syntax error" and that's the problem that we want to fix. So, to do that we're going to go into the cpanel hosting account for my wife's account - cpanel is what I use on Cybersalt Hosting - once we're logged in there and once you've backed up your database - REALLY, you REALLY want to do that, use that tutorial that I made - once you login to cpanel you're going to go down to phpMyAdmin in the databases section and click it. When we click on it we're taken to a place where we're presented with the databases that belong to this web hosting account. Here's keysbythe_88keys. It's the only database (information schema is just basic and serves a different purpose.) We're going to click on that database that runs the joomla site, keysbythe_88keys, or whatever your database is that runs your site and we'll be presented with the tables that run her Joomla site. Next we want to click on "SQL" and it's here in this SQL tab we have this field where we can post in a command that is going to search a certain table and look and change some things that will fix that error. Now here in this Wordpad document I've got the code that we want to run: update xxxx_modules set params = '' where params like '%{""}%'; I'll put that code in the description of the video as well so you can cut and paste. What we're going to do is select that whole line, I'm going to right click and copy it, get that window out of the way, and now I'm going to click in this window to run the SQL query, which is what it is, and click paste. Now, before I click "go" and run this, we need to change the four x's before "_modules" to whatever the prefix is for tables in your database. When I look over here in this column I see on this site it is "cyb." So you want to match the prefix replacing the four Xs in this line with whatever the prefixes are for your database - CYB in this case. And so this this SQL query is going to run on the module on the table "modules" in this database - cyb_modules - and it's going to do some looking around and do its thing. So I click go and once it's run it says up here "4 rows affected." That encourages me because if no rows were affected probably nothing was fixed, but now we can go back to the backend login for my wife's site - 88keysbythesea.com/administrator and I'm just going to enter again and lo and behold there's the login form and the site is fixed. If this was helpful please give me a thumbs up and if you haven't subscribed to the channel please do so! Click subscribe and don't forget to ring the bell next to subscribe that will let you get updates as soon as new videos are posted to the channel. Thanks for watching, enjoy your Joomla sites.

How To Backup or Transfer Your Joomla Database Using phpMyAdmin
 
09:14
If you want a backup of your Joomla site's database, or if you need to transfer your Joomla database to a different sql server, phpMyAdmin is a great tool for doing so. This tutorial shows how to use phpMyAdmin to download and upload (if need be) your Joomla Database. The first step of course is to get a copy of your existing database so that you can move it over to a new database that you've created for it. Here I am in the Islandnet control panel and with the tool that we want, called phpMyAdmin. On Islandnet you get to it in the control panel. If you're not hosting with Islandnet you probably will have a control panel that you can go to and access phpMyAdmin. So, there's two ways on Islandnet that I can get to this database tool. There's phpMyAdmin 3 (for MySQL 5.x). Now that's where the old database is. But you can also get to it through a database manager and this is in Control Panel, MySQL Manager or you can go Control Panel, Database Management and MySQL Manager. So here we have a SQL user on mysql55 and then we also have a user on the server mysql. Now I have created a user on mysql which has the same name and password as the old user (and I'll show you why that just saves a couple steps later on) and then down here the mysql databases there was the old database on mysql55. Once again I've created a database on mysql server, that's the newer one, and it is the same database name. I'll show you why later on. Now to get to phpMyAdmin we saw that you could do it through Control Panel. I'm just going to drop down to Database Management and the phpMyAdmin 3. That will bring up this window. I type in the username for the client and the password and we're looking at MySQL5.5. I click Go and we get into phpMyAdmin. Over here we see the databases that are created: information schema is included, and here is the database. Select the database that you want to see and then it will show you a whole list of tables. These are all the tables for your database and we just simply want to go up to the Export tab. All the tables are selected. We're going to Save to an output file, the format sql. We click Go, and now a file is going to be downloaded. Let's download it to the Downloads folder here - to the delete folder - and it's called ____ and now I have that file on my computer. Now we import that file I've just downloaded into the new database. To do that I use the Import tab, but I first I need to log out of phpMyAdmin, and then log in to a phpMyAdmin on the other servers. So first of all, let me put in the password and now I want to go to mysql. Click go. And now, it looks all the same as before but this database that I've created is actually empty; there's nothing in it. So that's great. I'm going to go to Import and then Choose File. Go to “delete” and there's the database we just downloaded. I'll open that up and I will click Go. Now if your Joomla site is very big it may timeout if it takes a super long time to upload and be processed on the server. But this is not a large database and the servers are really cranking out good speed right now so we will upload that and just wait and be patient. There we go. We can take a quick look now. All the database tables are there and now we've got an SQL database on the new server. Now the only thing that's left is to point the Joomla site to the new database and this is where having the same username password and database name comes in really handy. I'm already logged into the back end of the client site. I'm going to go to Global Configuration, and go to Server. Here is the information on the database and because the only thing that is changing is the server - because the username, the password, and the database name are the same, but they're on different servers - instead of this mysql55.islandnet, I'm going to put in the name of the other server which is simply mysql. I click save and now it's changed and I know that when I look at this site it will now be pulling from the new database and is going to be running a lot faster than the other site was. Now if you get kicked out during this process, just log in again and there should be no problem. So, if you want to back-up your Joomla database all you need to do is go to the location where it exists and you could go Export and just go through all of the steps, download it to your computer and then you have a backup in case something happens where you need it down the road. That's how to use phpMyAdmin to download your Joomla database so you can back it up somewhere safe and how to transfer it to a different mysql server whether on the same host or if you were transferring hosts. If you're looking for good speedy host that runs Joomla sites quickly, contact me. Enjoy your Joomla sites! God bless.

How to Delete Phoca download Files - A Joomla Tutorial on Deleting Files in Phoca Download
 
06:29
In this tutorial we're going to see how to delete unwanted files that you have in Phoca Download. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH Now, we're going to do a quick review of how Phoca Download points to those files and we're going to see one setting that you have to change in order for all of this to work. So, we're already logged in - I'm already logged in - to the Basic Joomla site in the back end, we're at the Phoca Download component (components Phoca Download) and we're viewing files. For this tutorial I've set up three files - now when I say files think of Phoca Download as creating mini-documents or articles that point to a file on your server. So, you see here I have one mini- document pointing to "test file one" - it's called "test file one" - it points to the dietandallergy.pdf (I have no idea what's on that file by the way - it was just on my computer.) And I have a "test file one copy" which also points to the same PDF. So, this file exists on the server once but there are two files or mini-documents pointing to it in Phoca Download. And then we have "test file 2" which points to consultant.pdf. Now, when we click on "test file one" we see what you're used to in Phoca Download - a title, alias, category that it is assigned to, and then the file name and this file name comes from where you have selected it on the server. What happened before in previous versions of Phoca Download was that you had no way to delete these files unless you went in and use the file manager. So, we will close that and we're going to change one setting to enable deleting the files and then I'll show you what happens when you delete a file that's only occurring once or that's pointed to only once and what happens when there's more than one. Now, the setting that we want to change; go to control panel, options, and then under the general tab look for this field here "Delete Existing Files" and change it to "yes." Now, of course it goes without saying but I'll say it anyways, make sure you have backup of these files if you're deleting them off your server but you may want them later, because this will get rid of them all together. We've changed this to yes, we'll go save and close, and then we'll go back to Files. Now remember, these two "tests file 1"'s point to dietandallergy and "test file 2" points to "consultant.pdf" Now, I've logged into my web hosting control panel here and opened up the file manager and we can see the actual folder on the server where those two PDF files are being stored. Now that we've changed that setting let's go to "test file 2." First of all, we'll select it by using that check box and we'll click delete. That will change the mini-document or mini- article that's pointing to that PDF file - it deletes it, removes the record to it - and because we changed that setting to in order to delete files we can now go to the file manager, I'm going to reload that folder, and we're going to see if consultant has been removed or not. And yes it has. Great that's what we want to do. Now, in Phoca Download you might have a couple of these mini-articles or mini-pages, or whatever you want to call, them pointing to the same file as I've set up in this example. You would hope that if you delete one of these this file will not be deleted because that would break its link to the other place that it is pointed to. So as an experiment, let's delete "test file 1", delete, okay, and when we go back to the file manager and reload the page we see that "diet_and_allergy.pdf" is still there and that's excellent! That means that Phoca Download - before it deletes a file - looks to see if it's referenced in any of the other mini- pages that points to these files. Now, we can select "test file 1 copy" and delete it. We'll go back to the file manager, we'll reload and now that page is gone. This this is a huge, huge time-saver for people using Phoca Download when it comes to organizing and keeping things tidy because it was, too many steps before. So, there you go that's how to delete files using Phoca Download from right within Phoca Download. I hope that tutorial was helpful for you, and if it was please give the video a thumbs up.

Checking for the correct location of the TMP and LOGS folders in Joomla 🛠Maintenance Monday #001
 
07:57
In this issue of Maintenance Monday we look at making sure the proper location is set for the tmp and log folders of your #joomla site. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH Here are the links mentioned in this Live Stream: MyJoomla.com free site audit ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTuNh-Oznwg Enter to Win ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla Hey there, Joomla fans! Tim Davis here. I'm a Joomla fan too. Thanks for tuning in to the first of a new series of live streams that we're going to be having on Mondays. Maintenance Mondays! We're going to take a look each Monday at a little thing that we can do to maintain our Joomla sites ... might be get rid of files we don't need, organize the file structure properly, shrink down the size of the whole Joomla install itself, if there are things that get left on there that don't need to be and more. So, let's get started. I'm going to be taking a lot of this information from the audit information from my Joomla sites that I get from "MyJoomla.com" that you can use for maintaining and also updating your Joomla sites. I've been using it for a little while now and it's got tons of helpful information. The thing I really like about Phil's site is that not only does it have recommendations or find things or suggest things, but there's a lot of good learning material on there, so I've been picking up a lot of information on maintaining my Joomla sites or maintaining Joomla sites in general. When you run an audit from “MyJoomla.com,” you'll get information from a snapshot of your site. That audit isn't just an external scan, it's an internal look at all the files on your install, and then you'll get recommendations and ideas and warnings and various things. Today we will focus on one here. Here we go - "Joomla Logs/tmp Folder Location Should Exist at Default Locations." Now I've had a little bit of confusion about this over the years, especially for the log folder for Joomla. Should it be forward slash log? or forward slash logs? and I was able to come to a definitive answer here from the reading up on the information. Just to show you here, click "Learn more" and read up, that it should be "logs" plural. Now there are some cases where people program extensions or other things that may use "log" but it's important for our Joomla sites to be set up with the defaults in place so that when extensions that are set up correctly are looking for the temp folder or the log folder that they find it in the right location, and it's just an easy way to find your error file. So somehow along the way a lot of my sites have ended up with "log." Now the fix for this is to log in to the back-end of your Joomla site, go to system, global configuration, and the first thing we're going to check is the system tab. And here we see the path to the log folder home/basicjoo/public_html folder and then “log.” Log and temp reside in the root folder of the Joomla install and this should be “logs.” Now to change it, it's as easy as adding an S to the end and we'll just click Save. Now having saved that I have opened up in my file manager for this web hosting account the root folder, you’ll see “Logs” is not automatically created once you change the address of the path here in the Joomla configuration. Now I did do some other testing though and I found that if I try to log into the backend of my website with an incorrect password it registered that area and it created the logs folder. So, you don't necessarily need to create the logs folder in your hosting account; it will be automatically created by Joomla. But I also wonder if maybe every system that wants to access that, if maybe it won't happen the same way. I could be wrong. Maybe as soon as any extension tries to write to “logs,” if it doesn't exist, maybe Joomla makes it. I don't know. The solution, to be safe, is to simply create that folder. I'll do that right now. I'm going to create that folder: "logs." But I still have this old log folder. I don't need it anymore, it's become clutter because it's the wrong location. What I would suggest is first go into your old log file and see if there's any error files that maybe have some information for what you're looking for then go back up to the root, select the log, and just delete that. And now I know that I have logs in the proper location. We can click back here to the global configuration and now we want to just double-check on temp. When I click on server I see "tmp" temp; it's in the right location and it's spelled correctly. So, I know that everything is good and I've maintained that part of my Joomla site. Thank you very much for watching and for joining me on this journey getting more enjoyment and success out of our Joomla sites. As always, enjoy your Joomla sites, and God bless. #joomla #basicjoomla #cybersalt

Use Gzip Compression Whenever Possible - Use Gzip in Joomla 🛠Maintenance Monday Live Stream #002 -
 
06:46
In this issue of Maintenance Monday, we look at making sure #Gzip is turned on in your #Joomla site. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH Here are the links mentioned in this Live Stream: MyJoomla.com free site audit ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTuNh-Oznwg Enter to Win ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests Backing Up Your Joomla Site with Akeeba ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n43ta1bEiao What is Gzip - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gzip ENTER TO WIN! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla Hey there, Joomla fans! Tim Davis here. I'm a Joomla fan too. Oh man, stick a fork in me I'm done as far as the stuff with these live streams. I had another one start up without sound … Anyways it's going now. Thanks for tuning in to this second edition of Maintenance Monday, episode #2. We're going to be looking at something else that we can do to maintain our Joomla sites and have them running efficiently and quickly. Today we're going to look at another recommendation that comes from using Phil Taylor's site, MyJoomla.com. Remember, that every month we have a giveaway on the site: a one-year membership to maintain one Joomla site on MyJoomla.com. All you have to do is enter, so check that out. Today, we're going to check out is this recommendation to use Gzip compression whenever possible. Now you might be asking, "What is Gzip compression?" I'm going to put in the link below, in the description below, a link to the Wikipedia page on what Gzip is. Basically Gzip is a format used in HTTP compression, a technique used to speed up the sending of HTML and other content on the World Wide Web. So, when you have Gzip enabled, it basically compresses the files that are being sent from the server to the web browser of whoever it is that's visiting your site and so compressed files - smaller files - means faster transfer rates. There’s a link down below to tell you more about what Gzip is. Now I've got a special window here before I change to go to the back end of the Joomla site, and it is this one right here. I'm using it to block the information for the database for this site so you won't be able to see the details of this particular site. So, we're logged in to the back end of the Basic Joomla site here, and I've gone to system, global configuration, and opened up this system global configuration page. To turn on Gzip compression all you have to do is click “yes” in this field right here in the server settings. Now before you do that, make sure you've backed up your Joomla site. I've got to put a card up here and there’s a link in the description below on how to do that for your Joomla site, but also make sure that you can access the web hosting file space for your web site because if there's something configured in an improper or conflicting way on the server that you're hosting your site on, if you turn Gzip compression on it might lock you out, or it might make it hard for you to get back in to your site. You might get the white screen of death. In which case, go into your file manager, and go to the folder that your Joomla site is installed in, go to configuration.PHP, and then turn Gzip page compression off. You should be able to see from some of the other options in that configuration file what it is that you would do to turn that off. In order to turn Gzip page compression on though, all you need to do is click “yes,” save and close, and that will be on. Now I have Gzip turned on by default for all accounts on my server, so doing this right now for the basic Joomla site really doesn't make any difference because everything's already being compressed. But it might not be so with whoever it is you're hosting with. So, to make sure your Joomla site is sending out as fast as possible, one step you will want to do is enable Gzip compression. So, there you have it. Another handy tip for Maintenance Monday from an audit done on MyJoomla.com. I'm going to wrap this up right there. That's everything I wanted to say. Oh, one other thing I did want to say at the end there - I should've said at the beginning was - the thumbnail for this video! It looks like I photo-shopped the white hardhat onto my head but actually, this is a legitimate, real, dirty hardhat. But watch this crazy magic right here. Put it on and it turns like absolutely snow white; there's probably a sermon illustration in that somewhere, but that's another story down by the river bank. Thanks for watching. As always, enjoy your Joomla sites, and God bless. #joomla #basicjoomla #cybersalt
MyJoomla.com Free Site Audit Tutorial - How to scan your Joomla site for viruses and hacks.
 
18:04
If your Joomla site is hacked and you want to scan it, or you are looking for tools that allow you to secure, manage, upgrade, monitor your site and much more, check out this free site audit you can get from MyJoomla.com SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH ENTER TO WIN!!! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla Let's check out how to get a free site audit for your Joomla site from MyJoomla.com. That's Phil Taylor's site. What this audit does, is it looks at every single file in your web hosting account and it searches for not only active malware or hacks but it can also find the remnants of things from the past that are just lying there dormant and from a current hack or from a hack that maybe was in the past. I've noticed that on some sites that I've searched there were some files that were missed and the audit found them. The first step is to sign up for a free account. Just click on sign up. When that is complete, click the “get started” button. Now on this next screen, MyJoomla.com has incredible instructions and lots of helpful information. Next, you add your Joomla site to MyJoomla.com, to this account that you've just created, and then it will begin the audit. Now there's three ways to do that. 1. First you have the option to Install from a URL. I'm already logged into the basicjoomla.com site. I'm going to go to Extensions, Manage, and Install. And here in this Joomla 3.7.3 site, you have the option to Install from the Web, Upload a Package File, Install from Folder, Install from URL. Now if we click on install from URL, all you need to do in this method is go down to this clipboard and you can copy this URL here to your site. Now notice this last bit here. Every plugin is different for each site. It's not just a common plugin for all. Copy that and then paste it in "Install from URL" then Check and Install. Now MyJoomla.com is listening for a connection from your site, and if I were to click check install here, then the entire process will start. 2. The next tab "Install from File." This works with Joomla 3.0 and up. Just read through this option ... download that file through this blue button. Remember the location on your computer because you're going to go to that location in the back end of your site and upload it. 3. But what I want to do in this tutorial is just show you the older series because that will work for everybody. So, we'll click on older series, click below to start the connection wizard. This is going to give you some steps to go through, to get things installed on your site. Now you need to give the exact URL that your site is on. This should end with a trailing slash. Enter your site's URL c. Next, I'm going to click the site address. d. Now we have to download the connector plug-in. To do that we're going to click that blue bar and we're going to put it in a folder and save that. e. Now the next step is to install the connector on your site. It says here, "Click to go to your administration page." So, we'll click on that then the tab where we can log in to the back-end of our site will open. I'm going to log in to the back-end of the basicJoomla.com site. f. Now we will go back to the tab for MyJoomla.com and we'll click continue. g. Now a sanity check. Once installed, one of these buttons should launch your site and show Ready. h. Now from the previous step we go to Extensions, Manage, Install, Upload the Package File. Browse to the folder where that connector file is, double click on it and it will install. And it's there. i. Next, we go back to MyJoomla.com and now you're going to click on this button to select your series of Joomla. Once you've installed, then one of these buttons should launch your site and show "Ready." If none of them do, you have a permission issue or htaccess rule that is blocking access or some other issue. We can help you with those. Just ask. You can always ask for help up here in the top right corner “Contact Phil for help.” Now we know that this is a Joomla 3.7 site that we're working on so that's what I'm going to click on. I click on that and I see up here in the corner it says Ready. That means that MyJoomla.com successfully connected to that plugin that we just added. j. Now we go back to the tab. Here's this green button to click next. I see "Ready." Click on that. Now it's going to ask us to check the connection status and we will do that. We check that and we wait for it to connect. I cut out a little bit of the waiting time there but it did connect and now there is a snapshot taken of my Joomla site and at the same time the free audit is being run in the background.

Live Bulletin -  🔧Joomla! 3.8.6 Security and Bug Release and 2 How to update Joomla Tutorials
 
10:17
Joomla! 3.8.6 Security and Bug Release is out. It addresses a security vulnerability and has over 60 bug fixes and improvements since the release of Joomla 3.8.3 ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH Here are the links mentioned in this Live Stream: Joomla! 3.8.6 Release ► https://www.joomla.org/announcements/release-news/5725-joomla-3-8-6-release.html Backing Up Your Joomla Site with Akeeba ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n43ta1bEiao&list=PLhIXCdHBgQ18eZGIw4mEkiFNvZty7AzGp Joomla Update Missing from Menu ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AW6SqTT2SSg MyJoomla.com free site audit ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTuNh-Oznwg Better Cache Cleaner ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Au07w3mouoI ENTER TO WIN! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla So the big news today is a security release of Joomla 3.8.6. We're going to take a look at two ways to update your Joomla site. You'll see Joomla 3.8.6 is out and if you want information on what the low priority security fix was and some of the bug fixes and improvements you can check the link. So there's two ways that we're going to look at updating our Joomla sites today. The first one is using the core updater when you log in to your admin area and get a notification that there's a new Joomla version available. If you don't see that, it hasn't come up yet for whatever reason, you can go to 'components' and 'Joomla update.' Now if you don't have 'components' 'Joomla update' in that menu, then go ahead and check out the link below. I have a tutorial on how to solve that problem. So you can update by clicking the 'update now' button or you can go to the 'Joomla update' menu and under 'components.' I'm going to do that today. This is the basicjoomla.com site, and you'll see a Joomla update was found. So click 'install the update.' But make sure you have a good working backup of your Joomla site. Use Akeeba backup to backup your site. There's a link in the video description below. I do have this backed up. I'm going to click 'install the update.' Once that bar has reached across, it says this site's been updated and a good thing to do is to test it so we'll go up here and we will go to 'preview,' and there you have it. The site is working and we've updated that Joomla website right there. So that's the first way using the Joomla core. The other way is to use myJoomla.com. It's a place where you could manage one Joomla site or many Joomla sites, updating extensions, running security scans, doing all sorts of things. I have all my sites lined up here and you'll see a bunch here still showing Joomla updates available that I have not updated yet. So what we're going to do is we will do 88keysbythesea. I'm going to click 'start an upgrade', and the great thing about myJoomla.com is there's plenty of information to read and learn about Joomla, learn about how your site works and runs, and also to just help you go step-by-step through things. I'm not concerned about those things in this case with that site. I know what's going on, so I'm going to go ahead and start the upgrade. The last backup was taken 13 hours ago. So we will click 'start an upgrade of the site' and we'll be taken to this next window where again green bars are going across while the upgrade process takes place. Now let's just check back at this update and process it is finished. All the green bars are across, so through myJoomla.com I have updated that site and actually I can go and update number of sites at the same time, save time going into one one one over and over again and updating. The last step is to make sure the upgrade took. So we'll preview the page. It's there and as we say on the west coast of Canada and also in England I guess, at least - What was the movie that I saw it in? Mary Poppins, the original. Dick Van Dyke says, "Bob's your uncle!" So there you go. We've looked at two ways how to update Joomla to the latest version through (1) myJoomla.com, and (2) using the core. And so basically, that's it. That's all I wanted to share with you today. Thanks for your support of this channel and for tuning in and as always please do subscribe and ring that bell. Rick says in the chat, "Backup, backup, backup." He just had to install a backup to his 3-month-old iMac. Wow! You have a backup. That was great. Good thing you had that backup, Rick. Everybody, ya do backup your sites, and watch the playlist for all the videos I have on the different aspects and different ways to backup your Joomla site. So that is it for today. Thanks for tuning in. As always enjoy your Joomla sites and God bless. #joomla #basicjoomla #cybersalt

👍🔐 How to Set Up 2 Factor Authentication for YubiKey In Joomla
 
10:40
By default, Two Factor Authentication is not activated in Joomla, but doing so is not hard at all. If you want to offer your Joomla users a higher level of security, or you want a higher level of security for your own Joomla account info, enable 2FA for Joomla. This video tutorial will show you how to enable, set up and use YubiKey. Order your own YubiKey! ► https://amzn.to/2PraiZ1 What is Two Factor Authentication. Wikipedia defines it this way: "Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type (subset) of multi-factor authentication. It is a method of confirming users' claimed identities by using a combination of two different factors: 1) something they know, 2) something they have, or 3) something they are. A good example of two-factor authentication is the withdrawing of money from an ATM; only the correct combination of a bank card (something that the user possesses) and a PIN (personal identification number, something that the user knows) allows the transaction to be carried out."

Regular Labs Better Trash - A better way to manage trash in Joomla. A Joomla Trash Tutorial
 
06:56
Regular Labs Better Trash is a streamlined way to manage and empty the Joomla trash. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH This tutorial demonstrates "Better Trash" from Regular Labs. This tutorial will also help you if you are looking for a way to streamline using Joomla's cache to find deleted menu items, articles, categories and more in order to restore or finally delete trashed menu items and trashed articles. Peter Van Westen's daughter thought there was a better way to do something in Joomla so he programmed it. It all relates to how you access trash in Joomla: to empty the trash for articles and also for menu items. So, Let's check out this new plugin from Regular Labs called, "Better Trash." First let's take a look at how the trash works without this plugin - how it normally works in Joomla. We look at content, articles - I'm already logged into the admin area of the Basic Joomla site - you will see I've got a couple of test articles here. If I select that article, which is published, and click on trash it's going to go to the trash. Now, if I want to see what's in the trash, if I click on trash here, it tells me I have to make a selection because basically in Joomla the only function of this trash button is to send things to the trash. And of course to see what's in the trash you have to go to the search tools and then drop down the Select status and then go to trash and then it will show you the items that are in the trash. That's a lot of steps. This new plugin from Regular Labs takes a lot of that out. If you already have the extension then you know just go to components, Regular Labs extension manager and this is where you can manage all of your Regular Labs extensions. If we click check next to this test, we'll click trash again. Now watch what happens with this new plugin - nothing is selected - when we click trash it actually opens up the trash and shows all of the items. Now if there's something you want to get out the trash, you would then change its status by clicking on the trashcan. I could go back to published which will make it disappear from this view or you could, like we're going to look at now, just delete them. We could select all of them, but instead now notice the "trash button" has changed to an "empty trash" button and if we click on that we get a warning "Are you sure you want to delete. Confirming will permanently delete the selected items?" Because everything has been automatically selected here say, "Yes" and the trash is emptied. That's great. Let's look at it a little bit more. We'll go over to menus,all menu items. Now, this is showing, from my previous testing before getting ready to record this, all the items that have been trashed. Well, there are none so again we'll clear the search tools. Here's a whole bunch of menu items and I have down here, I've got a couple I created - deleted menu item two and three. Why don't we just click those two and then hit the trash button up here at the top and they're gone! Now without selecting anything we can go to trash and there's the two menu items which we can now get rid of if we don't want them anymore or restore or do whatever it is that you want it to do with them. But, let's empty the trash and before I do that let me just say that by emptying the article trash you're not emptying the menu trash. Those things are managed separately and that's a good thing because when you're confirming to delete everything and the articles for instance you might not want to delete other menu items in the other part of Joomla. But, we can click "empty trash," say OK and there you go, the trash is emptied. So this is a pretty handy plugin that removes a couple of steps, a little bit of the fiddliness of accessing the trash in Joomla for your menus for your articles and I think it's a really neat addition to be using on the site. I'll admit that sometimes I've not bothered with the trash because it's just a pain to go in and filter all things - I just leave them there. Now it's super easy to clean out Questions for you Joomla fans: Are you going to use this new plug-in from Regular Labs- yes or no? Put it in the comments below and say why or why not. Or maybe you have an idea of some other little thing that would be really nice to be a change in Joomla to make things run a little more efficiently just like this plug-in does. At the end, in the end cards coming up very soon, there's going to be a playlist of other tutorials for Regular Lab extensions so check that out and be sure to subscribe and bring the bell for notification so that you can get updates whenever there's new videos coming out on the channel.

Remove Unused Extensions in Joomla 🛠 Maintenance Monday Live Stream #010
 
28:31
In this issue of Maintenance Monday we look how to remove unused extensions in your #Joomla site. It's yet another way to save space on your web hosting account, cut down on clutter in your administrator area, and it also reduces the time it takes to update your Joomla Extensions. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH Here are the links mentioned in this Live Stream: Backing Up Your Joomla Site with Akeeba ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n43ta1bEiao Enter to Win ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/giveaways myJoomla.com ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTuNh-Oznwg Regular Labs Cache Cleaner ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Au07w3mouoI ENTER TO WIN! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/giveaways FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla Today's topic is how to remove extensions that are no longer used or needed on a Joomla site. Let's look at the back end of this Joomla site here that I'm using for the templates. Before you go to remove anything make sure to confirm you're removing something that you don't need, and to that end, make sure that you back up your Joomla site before you uninstall anything. I have a tutorial on how to backup your Joomla site with Akeeba backup in the description below or a card above. Now let's just look at a couple of extensions here. I installed these as examples of extensions that put modules right into your module settings so in no way am I saying these are extensions that you should remove, and I'm not saying these are extensions that are bad either, I'm just using them as examples. K2 is an extension that installs a bunch of modules which we can see here in the module area. So, there are lots of K2 modules and sometimes, at least on the site that I was helping with today, they were all unpublished anyways. K2 also puts in several plugins, and so there is an example of an extension I'm not using on this site and so it's a candidate for being removed, just to get rid of the clutter. To remove an extension, click on extensions, mouse over manage, and then click on manage and once you are in there find the extensions you want to remove. Here is K2. Sometimes you can just select the main component module of an extension you want to remove or you can select all of them. Why don't we just give this an experiment? We'll remove K2 administrator component, click on it, click on uninstall, and then we will just wait while it's doing that uninstall process. So it is removed, and it removed everything that it installed and now we see here there are no more K2 extensions. Before showing this window, I sort it by ID number. If you sort by the column ID you can see the lower numbers are the things that are the oldest installed and they're usually the basic things that come with Joomla. If however, you search the other way for the highest numbers, then you see what was most recently added and you can remove an extension that was recently added. That can be helpful if you've just installed a component and something seems to break, or you want to know what the most recent one is. Let's look at one more thing. Another component that I'm not going to use on this site because I only use it for templates is JFB Connect. This is a great component for managing all your Facebook needs in Joomla so if you don't want to have to learn all the Facebook IDs and profiles and more, that is a super-duper extension. But again, I'm not going to use it on this site and it does put some modules on in the module area. JFBC - we'll filter by that name. You do get a few in there and this could be cluttered, so why not just remove JFBC. We'll go back again to extensions, manage, and click on manage. We'll go to that list again and there's JFBC still filtered in there. Here again, we will select just the component. Let's see if it removes it all. Yeah, it only removed one. So, in this case, we want to select all of the ones that match JFBC, and I think we might also, to find them, could search by the type, filter by type, or folder ... maybe not in this case. Sometimes it's another way to group elements of extensions but I don't see it with this one. So we'll just select them all and we'll uninstall, and like I said these two examples that I'm uninstalling it's not because I don't think they're good or don't recommend them or that I do recommend them, although I would recommend JFBC. It is a good policy to remove components/extensions that you are not using on your site because they create clutter, you have to update them more often, you're not even using them, and it will make your site smaller. Be sure to backup before in case you delete an important extension. Particularly if you've adopted a site, be careful when you're removing things and be sure to backup. So that's it for this Maintenance Monday Live Stream. Thanks for watching. Enjoy your Joomla sites, and God bless. #joomla #basicjoomla #cybersalt

Working With Tables in Joomla Articles - A Tutorial on how to put a table in a Joomla article
 
13:16
Inserting, editing, and working with tables inside of Joomla articles can have it's challenges. This tutorial demonstrates a great solution for doing so. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► https://goo.gl/N6y5bH ENTER TO WIN! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/contests FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla The editor being used in this tutorial is JCE Editor with a full complement of the subscription based add-on buttons. http://www.joomlacontenteditor.net/ This tutorial will show you how to use the table features for working with tables inside of an article in Joomla. To demonstrate how tables works we're going to log into the back-end of the site and open up and edit an article. This editor is JCE editor. It's a "by subscription" editor for using in Joomla. Let's put a table in there now, and just click in the article, make a new line for it. We need to add a row. Well that's easy. We can do that a couple ways. First of all, we'll click somewhere in this row, and now you see all these table buttons are alive and there's a button when you mouse over that says, "insert row after." Yes, that's what we want. Here's one that would put a row in front, but now we'll put the kid last. So, we click on there. There we go! And that's basically a lot of the basics of how to work with tables using JCE editor in Joomla. Now just as we inserted a column, sorry, inserted a row, we can insert a column by clicking anywhere in any cell in this column and using this button "insert column before," "insert column after" or we could delete that column all together. Now it does get a little bit goofy when we start merging certain cells over rows and deleting but that's the same in any software, just tables are fiddly that way. But why don't we put a column in before this column. Now it's there but there's nothing in it so it's skinny like our initial one. But if we click in there we could go "Initial." And John's initial is G, and Jane's initial is H, and Joey's initial is K. Now you notice that this table is also shifted off to the left of the article here, and if we want it to appear centered in the article, one might think you could click outside the box here and just click "center" ... let's give that a try ... nope that did not work. I didn't think that was going to work. What you do is this. Click the table somewhere, right click, go to table properties. Table properties will come up and here's where you set the alignment. I'm going to pick Center and click update. Now that table will always be centered on the page. This can be fiddly in other versions of JCE editor and other versions of Joomla and it's possible could be fiddly on your site even if you're using the same things that I'm using. But they're constantly updating the code and fixings things like that. You'll see some other things that you can do here. We could select this whole row and we could go to a background color, and we could give it a slight blue shade. Now oh that's the background for the text. Well we don't want just that highlighted. Well maybe you do; I don't. I'm just going to click "undo." Let me just pause to look at these buttons a little bit better. And having paused I see what we want to do. If I click in the row, right click, and go down to "row," now I can select "table row properties" and I have some general properties here. I could center everything in that row, the alignment I could Center it. I can make the text in it aligned to the top. Lots of things to experiment with in here. But with regards to shading, we can go to the Advanced tab, go to the background color, and here we can pick something along the dial here and use the color picker. And look, we can do a border color. There we go. And it's black all the way around. Now we could go to row, table row properties, and we've picked the color. Let's pick a different color, let's pick that nice red there. And update. Now we've got individual red borders around there but we have a black border on the table. When we right click in here and go to table properties there is a place where we can set the width. So I could make a huge table that's 900 pixels wide. We go update and now it's stretched out big and that's great for the website. But if your site is ... if it's important for your site to be able to be viewed on mobile devices - especially cell phones - setting a width for your table or even using tables can really throw off your mobile template. They're not, tables are not always mobile friendly and most often aren't, so use those sparingly. So I'll just wrap things up right there, and enjoy working with tables on your Joomla site. God bless!

Change it to have your domain and secret word in it: wget -q -O /dev/null "https://www.basicjoomla.com/freejoomla/?cleancache=cleanme&break=1" Here are the links mentioned in this Live Stream: Backing Up Your Joomla Site with Akeeba ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n43ta1bEiao Enter to Win ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/giveaways myJoomla.com ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTuNh-Oznwg Regular Labs Cache Cleaner ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Au07w3mouoI ENTER TO WIN! ► https://www.basicjoomla.com/giveaways FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! ► @basicjoomla LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! ► https://www.facebook.com/basicjoomla Today's topic is how to empty the Joomla cache without logging in to the administrator area of your site. Let's do that using Regular Labs Cache Cleaner. Go to RegularLabs.com, find the Cache Cleaner, and download the free version. So here we are on my basicjoomla.com site. We'll look in the back-end at Components and Regular Labs Extension Manager which you can also install from the Regular Labs site, or you could go to Extensions and Plug-ins and go to Cache Cleaner, or filter the title of that plug-in to find it quickly. The great thing about the Regular Labs Extension Manager is I can go down here to Cache Cleaner, I can click on the system plug-in and it will open up right at the plug-in here in the back end of the site. I'm going to show you three ways to set this up so that you don't have to log-in to the admin area of your site. The first way is to create a “Frontend secret URL” and as we scroll down here in this first tab of the plug-in you'll see you have to put in a front end secret word. Now when I go to that “/index.php?cleancache=cleanme” URL, then it will dump the cache in the backend of the site. To demonstrate that, let's just go to a tab here that shows that homepage. Here we have the URL of the page: “/index.php?cleancache=cleanme”. As we hit enter on that URL we will see a message pop up saying that the cache is being cleaned. So that's one of the methods. Basically, you could make a shortcut for this URL in your browser and you could have it to just do a drop down on your mobile phone or whatever. Whenever you need to empty the cache, then you could just bring up that bookmark. Now another way to empty the cache is to put “&break =1” after your secret word. What that's going to do is cause the cache to be cleaned without calling for your page. This method, of putting “&break=1” at the end, is a way to prevent the whole page called; it's quicker and again you preserve the purity of your analytics. When we go to this longer URL and hit enter, we'll get a message that the cache has been cleaned. When we go back to the cache folder using our file manager in the hosting account, we can reload, and we'll see that now lots has been wiped out. That’s because using the other method, with the secret word only, empties the cache but then makes a page for you to view and that reloads the cache. It will be the most current view of what you're working on, but again this isn't so much for use when you're working on your site but rather when you need to empty the cache remotely. The 3rd method empties the cache using a cron job. Go to the Regular Labs site and look at Cache Cleaner, click on the tutorial link and you'll see the many things you can do with the free version, and what's included in the paid version. Scroll down to the very bottom and you'll come to this section that talks about cron jobs. Here is the code that you want to use to create a cron job on your server, in your hosting account. This code will run in the background at a specific time interval that you set and it will run the clean cache “mysecret&break=1”, the my secret being the secret word you choose when you create that cron job in the backend. I am in cPanel for this basicJoomla.com/freeJoomla site, and I've already gone to the cron tabs. I search for cron tabs in cPanel and add a new cron job. Now over here on my other screen, I have opened notepad and already have the URL that I need to run this on my site for this particular Joomla install: wget -q -O /dev/null, and then you put the URL that is going to be run by wget. So, we're going to copy that code (and make the adjustments as you need to for your site) and put it in the command line. Before I hit "Add New Cron Job" I have to say how often I want it to run. Once I make my selection, that's going to put asterisk stars in everything. I just click "Add New Cron Job". Now it is successfully completed. Enjoy your Joomla sites, and God bless. #joomla #basicjoomla #cybersalt

Enable Default Blacklist Text Filter for Administrator Group- 🛠 Maintenance Monday Live Stream #043
 
27:42
Since #Joomla 3.8.8, the default text filter type for the Access Control List (ACL) group "Administrator" has been "Default Blacklist." If your site was created with Joomla version 3.8.7 or prior, and you do not have any "Administrator Group" users that you wish to have full access to type or paste anything in an article or editor instance anywhere else, you should change the filter type to this new default setting. How to change the "Administrator" group filter type to "Default Blacklist" is what today's #maintenancemonday is all about.
