Just a quick one that I always struggle to find. If you have a template override in something like K2, or just a simple com_content override, then sometimes it’s useful to load a module position within the override rather than using the normal module manager and positions.
If you have copied Atomic and it doesn’t appear in your styles tab, check the following:
- Your folder for your template matches your ‘name’ tag in your xml.
- Your extension version is set the same as the DOCTYPE (all 1.7 or all 1.6)
If your template doesn’t appear once you have placed it in the templates folder, use the Install manager and Discover it.
The problem is that Joomla’s K2 component mangles double quote marks on extra fields as it uses JSON to pass them around. The fix can be found at http://www.steadweb.co.uk/joomla/k2-extra-fields-handling-special-characters.
My HTC Desire is a great phone but doesn’t seem to show any weather when set to ‘current location’. I have GPS off normally, but it even fails if it’s on so something’s not quite right. I emailed HTC Support and got this response:
“Hi Pete, Thank you for your email regarding your Desire. This is a known issue with the Device. You may wish to regularly check for OTA updates. There might be one released that resolves this issue. Can I suggest a suitable work around for the time being is to manually change the location settings each time you travel? Thank you for contacting HTC. If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me. With good wishes, Sam B HTC”
Setting it manually does indeed work, but it’s a bit of a pain if you move around as much as I do 😉
I’m a frustrated (poor) designer, but it’s nice to play. In particular, I like playing with a bit of CSS3 so if you like that sort of thing, check this site out in Chrome/Safari/Opera. You should see a nice background gradient and (in Chrome/Safari) some CSS3 transforms at the bottom. Just playing of course, and I couldn’t guarantee what you’re seeing in IE6/7, but then again, is there much point in checking….
Sometimes you just want a quick way to set your web files and your directories to the ‘standard’ permissions required. Whilst each website requires different levels of access for different users, this is the bare minimum you should be doing.
After a client queried the benefit of where the server is located in terms of SEO, I’ve done some research that I thought I’d share with you all. Continue reading
Simple enough request you would think but Microsoft are planning to release Outlook 2010 with their crappy Word engine, rather than nice CSS support. Check out the site at Fix Outlook and Twitter.
There’s still no change in the schedule for the Bill. The proposed 9PM move was aimed to make it (even more) gritty. Seems that nothing has happened so far. More disgustingly, the Champions League final next week will see the Bill, once more, off our screens. As if anyone cares about ManU?
What with it being our anniversary and somewhere near Valentine’s day, we decided to treat ourselves to a meal at one of the restaurants we’d not been to in Cheltenham, so we chose the fine dining experience of Lumière on Clarence Parade.
