Many web designers prefer to build their websites in test folders and when their development is over to move their Joomla applications to the root folder of their hosting accounts.
For the purpose of this post, let us presume that we have a Joomla 1.5 installed in the public_html/test folder in our account and we want to move it to the public_html directory so that it will be directly accessible through www.yourdomain.com. This change consists of the following steps:
1. Move all of the files and folders from your Joomla folder to the new directory. In our case from public_html/test to public_html
2. Reconfigure your application. You should edit your configuration.php file and make the following changes in it:
Change: var $log_path = '/home/user/public_html/test/logs';
To: var $log_path = '/home/user/public_html/logs';
Change: var $tmp_path = '/home/user/public_html/test/tmp';
To: var $tmp_path = '/home/user/public_html/tmp';
Change: var $ftp_root = '/public_html/test';
To: var $ftp_root = '/public_html';
Change: var $live_site = 'http://www.yourdomain.com/test';
To: var $live_site = 'http://www.yourdomain.com';
3. Remove the content of your cache folder (public_html/cache in our case)
Now when you reload your website it should be working flawlessly from its new location.
A very interesting question was asked of me earlier this evening about how to print return labels using Address Book application in Mac OS X. A lot of us may have used this print feature before to do mass mailing and it does save us a lot of time, if we know what we're doing. I was caught off guard as I have never used this feature and didn't quite figure it out on the spot.
So on the drive home, it occurred to me that Address book would only understand there is just one return address associate to the main account. Thus when one tries to print this return address, there is only one return address and lots of empty space.
The goal is to fill this empty space up with one address, and creating a new group for this purpose is the right approach. I ended up making a new group and named it "return labels". Then copy an address to use as the return address, and paste it in this group 30 times (or as much as your labels sheets can print). This works great and takes about 5 minutes to make your mailing task a bit easier.
So the search was still on. I went to the developer's support forum and came up on a post that perked my interest which eventually fixed my problem (you still need to have SC jQuery running).
There is one tiny parameter you can change in our code so there won't be any clashes with other frameworks on your website.
The code you have now in <----> is:
Change it to:
* you just need to add "&nc=0&pl=1" after the number.
UPDATED: Wibiya has since changed their code and no longer would one need the add "&nc=0&pl=1" after the ID number. SC JQuery still needed. I stopped using the toolbar because it takes much longer for the side to load.
I got an email from Sandra about a strange problem she’s been having with her email program, Microsoft Outlook Express. For some unknown reasons, whenever she tried to print out an email, the printer would not spare any tree. We’re talking huge fonts on the print out which takes up several pages for a short email conversation.
So I responded to Sandy saying this would be an easy fix, simply thinking it was a wrong setting somewhere in the printer’s driver. Today, hours before driving to her house to fix this problem, I searched around and gathered a few possible solutions. One of which stunned me because it was nothing close to what I suspected.
I managed to fixed her email printing problem in about 10 seconds. You will not believe what was wrong with the printing setting. It turns out Internet Explorer controls how emails in Outlook Express would be printed. How stupid is that? Please fix this, Microsoft engineers!
I strive to provide excellent customer service. Below, you’ll find testimonials from my happy customers from all over the Twin Cities metro area. If you want to leave a feedback, please do so by writing a comment to this post. Thank you!
