Playing with Joomla

Somethings to remind when using Joomla.

1.- problem: I want to hide some componets

The default login form in Joomla is managed through a built-in module called Login Form. To enable/disable this module, you have to go to the Joomla admin area > Extensions > Module Manager.


2.- problem: I cannot change global parameters of the articles.

The global parameter for article manager does not work properly, there is an iFrame that is opened in a wrong way and I cannot change the global parameters for the articles.

Then I have navigated till the SQL database, I have found that in table ‘joom_components’, the entry ‘articles’ contains the parameters with the different values.

Unfortunately it does not work.


3.- I need the site will show the information in a multilingual mode.

The most rated extension is: JoomFish.

When I have tried to install it some errors related to that the user cannot create a folder or move a file to a folder were returned during the installation.

So I did temporal security changes and finally I had problems with deletions, so I have completely un-installed it.

I have read that all folders required by Joomfish must be writable. I have changed it and now it’s installed.
