  • Enable HTTPS and make your entire site secure

    Life is full of surprises. One of these days I got a job offering with a consistent budget, one of my former clients approached me to "make his site secure".  I said yes, but when turned out what he wanted in fact i had a surprise: he wanted nothing else, just to make the browser warning about "unsecure site" go away. He actually purchased a security certificate and hired someone to install it onto his server - with no success.

  • How to remove 'Welcome to the Frontpage'

    I did not realised until recently how hard may be even for some seasoned Joomla webmasters to get rid of that 'Welcome to the Frontpage' text from their Joomla site. But talking with couple of customers and being even hired for do this Tongue outmade me curious, and I Googled for 'Welcome to the Frontpage'...

    The result may be surprise you... my last attempt ended on 25.000.000(no kidding...) hits.

    So, there is the free-for-all recipe:

  • K2 - Error decoding JSON data

    After updating K2 to version 3.6.3, in the backend, when tried to edit one of items, I got this error:

    Error decoding JSON data: Syntax error.

  • Server Forbidden 500 error when saving in Joomla Admin backend

    I had been driven crazy recently by couple of my sites suddenly beginning to exhibit a very annoying behavior. Sites, which worked flawlessly over past months/years began to die when I tried to save something, from new or edited articles, modules, menu items, contacts.

    Of course the first thing I done was to look to the error logs, then to enable debug and set the error reporting level to maximum. Nothing helpful.

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

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