I had a small support request about drafts not being deleted when the original article was deleted and received personal communication about it with the promise of a plugin to provide this functionality.
I understand they are working on some more extensions, so I shall certainly keep a close eye on them. Well done!
1) Create a hidden menu (Google it!)
2) Create a link to the Qlue 404 component in this hidden menu.
3) Within the basic parameters of this link, choose your custom 404 page.
4) Set your modules not to show on this menu link and make sure that on Module Assignment, you have "Include no Itemid" set to "Yes".
Bingo. Thanks guys!
I usually read all the reviews of an extension and when the first written one (i.e. the bottom one in this list) is 5 stars from the brilliant Carsten Engel, author of Frontend-User-Access and Admin-User-Access, I knew ScriptsDown had to be good. The double-page bug is fixed and the extension works perfectly. Yes, there could be better documentation and an indication that the ScriptsDown plugin should be run last. Also, if the author could create a list of scripts that need to be omitted (e.g. I use AVReloaded and so swfobject.js had to be omitted) that would help a lot. Don't expect it to just work perfectly first time... it depends on the extensions you've got installed and the scripts you have to omit. Persevere though and the speed increase is definitely worth it!
I couldn't have said it better myself... I've tried...
There are so many possibilities and combination of extensions out there, it's impossible for me to test them all. This extension definitely requires testing and experimentation. Some extensions require the scripts to be at the top in order to load libraries to support inline scripts, some (the good ones) don't.
The boost in pagespeed and yslow is definitely worth the effort.
Echoing all the other great reviews, this component is fantastic and the support is just amazing. There are some J! companies that I've dealt with that offer superb support, always good-natured, patient and quick... NinjaForge, NoNumber, Akeeba for example... so now add StackIdeas to that group.
Thanks again for a great product.
Thank you very much Dave!
I checked my files - found on a site that one file wasn't the 'official' version and updated it.
It would be fantastic if it could also update any files that weren't official versions, but it's still great!
Thanks for the feedback. I use the "Update Manager for Joomla!" (available on the JED) to update my files directly. I would love to add the ability to show the difference in files as well as allow auto updating going forward. We also set up the component to allow comparing files for any Joomla! extensions, which I think will be very useful. We just haven't had time to improve on it...but we will try to as soon as possible.
Thanks again for the feedback!
Just released new version (1.1.0). Now you can see by the icons color if the link is changed to anything but the main site.
Note: the current version of Linkr (for anyone that uses this great tool) does not work with FCK with respect to adding links to images. This is a Linkr issue that the author knows about and is fixed in the next, forthcoming release.
Hi David, we would be delighted to have you give us 6 stars & give careful attention to our user‘s requests! We have had some internal discussion,it's firmly on our things to do! In fact the 'newsletters mode' evolved from a similar conversation with Acajoom team. This has materialised in the latest version 220.127.116.11 as the 1st & only editor to provide such a resolve. So hold on, we will get there! Thanks d:o)
I've just installed 1.5alpha2 on a J1.5.6 site and it didn't work. I then read the installation instructions and lo-and-behold, it seems to be working fine! I do hope development on this continues; expect a donation when my next production site is complete :)
1. Install the component as a normal Joomla 1.5 component.
2. After installation change the config to replace the admin email address
3. You must then click the following links in the 'Development' tab in the JEvents control panel in order (VERY IMPORTANT)
1. Migrate admin menus and update databases (this will make sure your tables are up to date - the sql in the xml install file is more difficult to maintain during development and is therefore out of date!)
2. Migrate All Events to IcalEvents (this will copy all your existing events into the new format, if you have any - without removing them)
4. You MUST create at least one category before doing anything else
Two points: there are differences between IE7 and FF2, but that's life! Also, I would like to be able to configure the text size for the xtypo_quotes, is that possible and if not, is there any reason why this cannot be implemented?
But the author was brilliant with his support - quick and helpful - and we've established that it's an Ajax clash and that when 2Joomla release their upcoming AjaxTabs extension those two should work together perfectly.
Thanks for a great extension which looks fab and is easy to install and understand.
Some documentation would have been appreciated - once you've read the forums and got it going, well, yes, hindsight it s wonderful thing and it's straightforward enough. But a few simple instructions aren't too hard to write.
Still - once going - it's great!
Thanks for the note. Documentation is available here (and has been for some time).
