Joomla 3.4 Hosting :: AspHostPortal.com - How to find JavaScript conflict in Joomla

clock November 20, 2014 05:39 by author ben

How to find JavaScript conflict in Joomla?

While JavaScript are beautiful and very handy, they can also bring down a site if in conflict with each other. One can expect JavaScript conflicts to appear as more and more extensions are installed in a Joomla site. The extensions may be using different JavaScript libraries or different library versions or libraries made by different developers which can be in conflict to each other.
It is not all that difficult to rule out such conflicts and extension / template developers can be asked for help then on.

What causes JavaScript conflicts?

The different versions of Mootools library and jQuery library can make a lot of JavaScript conflicts. Event when you use the same libraries versions but those libraries made by different developers (i.e jQuery and Mootools conflict), JavaScript conflict can also occur.

Here is a case study:

  • Template A loads Mootools library version 1.5.0
  • Plugin B loads own Mootools library version 1.2.6
  • Module C loads jQuery library version 1.11
  • Component D loads jQuery library version 2.1.1

An other cause of JavaScript conflict is browser, some non-standard browsers handle JavaScript and the browser's JavaScript conflicts with JavaScript loaded from your site.

How to detect JavaScript conflicts?

So when your site is not working as expected, one should rule out conflicts. But how to check and find the JavaScript conflict?

"The ANSWER is checking the JavaScript console".

There are multiple ways to do it based on browsers. For example, in Firefox and Chrome, the available tools are Firebug, Web Developer toolbar, Debugger, Error Console, etc.
If your site has JavaScript error, the tools will provide you error messages that will help you to figure out the problem and zero in on the extension / feature of website causing this problem. The error message also gets you the names of file in conflicts.

You can detect the problem by checking which extensions cause the problem, here are the steps:

  • Switching to default Joomla template and disable your installed extensions then reload your site and check if the JavaScript error still exist or not.
  • Publish your installed extensions one by one and reload your site. Repeat the process until you discover which parts are in conflict.

How to resolve JavaScript conflicts?

There is no universal step to resolve JavaScript conflict as it varies from case to case and are best resolved by the developers. But here are few things that you can try:

  • Put jQuerry into no-conflict mode

The jQuery library and all of its plugins are contained within the jQuery namespace. Global objects are stored inside the jQuery namespace, by the way so you shouldn't get a clash between jQuery and any other library such as prototype.js, MooTools.

  • Putting jQuery in no-conflict mode immediately after it is loaded onto the page and before you attempt to use jQuery in the page.

<!-- Another way to put jQuery into no-conflict mode. -->
<script src="/prototype.js"></script>
<script src="/jquery.js"></script>
<script>
jQuery.noConflict();
jQuery( document ).ready(function( $ ) {
    // You can use the locally-scoped $ in here as an alias to jQuery.
    $( "div" ).hide();
});
// The $ variable in the global scope has the prototype.js meaning.
window.onload = function(){
    var mainDiv = $( "main" );
}
</script>

Ask for help from extension provider

If you can not resolve the JavaScript conflict by yourselves, you can search for solutions on internet, ask on forums or ask for support of the extension provider for solution.

My site has different issues?

JavaScript conflict is just one error type, errors can also be produced by PHP, SQL, etc. You can detect those errors using Joomla error reporting, follow THIS LINK for more details.

As needs be, connections with/inside your site will be on the protected https protocol rather than the standard http prefix.

Your site really needs SSL Certificate?

if you have an ecommerce or business site, SSL Certificate is about a must to ensure your important information is protected. See this Knowledge section for the definite examination.

2. Enable Force SSL in your Joomla site

Note: we used Joomla 3 in this tutorial, for Joomla 2.5, it’s the same.

Step 1: configure your configuration.php file

> Open your configuration.php file
> Find the following line:
var $live_site ='';
> Replace with:
var $live_site = 'https://www.your-domain.com';

More over, there are different Joomla extensions permitting you to redirect your chose pages into HTTPS. SSL Redirect could be an extraordinary pick, this extension is good with both Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.

Joomla 3.3 Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Improve your Joomla Speed

clock November 10, 2014 08:22 by author ben

How to Optimize Joomla 3 to Improve Site Performance

We know that speed is amongst the most important factors for the success of your website. By default, Joomla isn't slow but you can do a lot to optimize it and achieve great speed for your site. Here you will find the most essential actions you can take to speed up your Joomla 3 website. Here are few things you can easily do to speed-up Joomla:

Keep Joomla and its Extensions Updated

Having the latest version of Joomla is important for your site speed because in each version there are multiple code improvements. Even if the changes are small - new Joomla versions are generally performing better than previous ones. For more information on how to update Joomla to the latest version check out our Joomla Update Tutorial.

Keeping your Joomla extensions up-to-date is as important for the speed of your website as the Joomla itself. For more information on how to keep your Joomla 3 components, modules and plugins up-to-date, please refer to our tutorial on How to Upgrade Joomla.

Enable Joomla Caching

If cache is not enabled, every time your visitors load one of your pages, Joomla has to do few things - fetch the content from its database, load all the plugins, components and modules, you have installed, load your template file and combine all that into a single page. Needless to say this process takes time. This is where the internal Joomla caching system comes to help. When you enable the cache, the first time someone loads your page, the result from the above mentioned actions is stored. Then, all the following visitors will directly get the stored version of that page as if it was a simple, plain HTML file which is much, much lighter and loads faster. This is why caching is one of the most important things to enable in order to have a fast Joomla site.

To enable the Joomla caching, first go to System -> Global Configuration.

Next, you need to click on the System tab to get to the caching settings.

 

On the right part of this page you will find the Cache Settings. Find the Cache label and click on the drop-down next to it. From the list, please select the ON - Conservative caching option. The other available option - Progressive Caching works a bit different - it stores cached version of your site per each one of your visitors. It is useful in some particular cases and we don't recommend you to use it unless you're absolutely sure you need such caching enabled.

Once you set the caching to Conservative Caching, click on the green Save button at top of your page.

There is one final step that you need to make before the Joomla caching system actually starts working - to enable the System - Cache core Joomla 3 plugin. To do this go to Extensions -> Plugin Manager.

Here you will see a big list of all the plugins, currently installed in your Joomla application. The easiest way to locate the caching plugin is to use the search field. Just type in cache and press the magnifying glass button next to the search field.

Once you do that, you will see the System - Cache plugin and a red cross button next to it indicating that the plugin is disabled. To change its status to enabled press on the red button.

Finally, the status button next to the caching plugin will turn green and you'll see a message, indicating that the plugin has been enabled successfully.

That's it! Your Joomla caching system is now enabled and functional!

Enable Joomla Compression

Another thing that will greatly improve the performance of your Joomla website is the compression. If you enable the internal Joomla compressions system, the page that your visitors will download will be compressed before it is transferred to them. When your webpage size is reduced through compression, it will load much faster. To enable the Joomla compression, first access your admin area and go to System -> Global Configuration.

On this page you will see numerous settings. Click on the Server tab to view the server-related options you can change.

Here, locate the Gzip Page Compression label and press the Yes button next to it to enable the Gzip compression for Joomla.

You will notice that the indicator will turn green showing that the compression is enabled. Finally, press the green Save button in the top left part of the page to commit your changes.

That's it, the compression of your Joomla 3 site is enabled. You can use one of the many free online tools for testing the Gzip compression such as http://checkgzipcompression.com for example. If everything is alright, you should see a notification that the compression is enabled successfully as well as some information about the change in size of your pages. As you can see from the screenshot below, we've reduced the size of our sample page three times simply by enabling the compression.

Warning In same cases enabling the Gzip compression may cause errors. The most probable reason for such errors is that Gzip is either not installed or not configured correctly on your server. Please contact the support team of your hosting provider for further assistance.

Add .htaccess Optimization Rules

Htaccess files handles the way your webservers process your site. There are few rules you can add at the end of the .htaccess file that will improve the performance of your Joomla site:

  • ETag - tells browsers when one image has already been downloaded and can be fetched from the local browser cache instead from the server
  • Expires headers - similar to ETag but allows you to set different expiration times for different file type
  • AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE - minifies the source code of your compiled HTML files by removing empty lines, breaks and spaces

########## Begin - ETag Optimization
## This rule will create an ETag for files based only on the modification
## timestamp and their size.
## Note: It may cause problems on your server and you may need to remove it FileETag MTime Size
# AddOutputFilterByType is now deprecated by Apache. Use mod_filter in the future.

Reduce Your Images Size

Images are big part of your website. In most of the cases images can be optimized. There are several tips that you should follow when you use images in your pages:

Never use large photos and then scale them using HTML - it takes the browser time to scale the images and they look worse than the original. Always optimize your images. Applications like Adobe Photoshop and online services like  Smush it for example offer easy to use tools that will reduce the size of your images without lowering their quality greatly. Don't add too many images to a single page. If you have an article with many photos for example, try splitting it into pages.

Remove unused and unoptimized extensions

Each Joomla extension you add to your website requires system resources, database and disk space to operate. Having many extensions will increase the overa ll size of your website and make it slower. This is why, it is important to make sure that you have only extensions that you're actually using installed on your Joomla site. People often test different plugins, component and modules and forget to remove them once they finish working with them. It's great idea to do a clean-up of such extensions once in a while just to make sure there isn't any unnecessary content added to your site. Last but not least, when you choose the best extensions for the functionality you want to add to your Joomla site, always check for user reviews regarding the load it creates. Some components are poorly written and can affect the performance of your entire site.

Use Optimization Extensions

There are many extensions that try to improve the performance of your Joomla website. During the years of experience we've gathered while working with Joomla sites, there are few that we can recommend:

  • JCH Optimize - Combines JavaScript & CSS, combines images into sprites, minifies and compresses JavaScript
  • Jbetolo - All the functionality that JCH Optimize has plus CDN support
  • JotCache- Improves the built-in Joomla caching system
  • Cache Cleaner- easily clean the cache from the Joomla admin panel

Graphic design is ubiquitous in contemporary websites. The one-page structure nevertheless is among the popular web design developments. Those kind designs are frequently challenging to create, they ask for unique template format with lots of module positions in rows, and designers need to plainly express details whilst also gratifying aesthetic targets. The key notion in the One-Page format is predicated on this concept: hyperlinks really don't open up a fresh page; rather, each time a person clicks around the sub-menu hyperlinks the display jump down the web page to that exact content’s area. These designs are challenging as they are less structured and also have a broader variety of dimensions and element ratios. Aesthetics can also be important, as patterns need to usually be eye-catching and visually pleasing.

An ID ought to be distinctive in a webpage if you would like utilize it later on for OnePage functions. Knowing this you'll be able to very easily incorporate new rows with picked addons and use distinctive ID title for every of them, for instance: company-features, our-services, our-clients, address-map.

    After it will allows you to use #company-features menu links in Menu Manager for your sub-menu module. Right now focus on adding different add-ons to your layout with real content if you have it.

  • Save new page layout, and go to Menu Manager -> New Menu Item -> Menu Item Type -> SP Page Builder -> Page and choose your created before layout, in my case it was "one-page".



    It means that under this menu item you will have page which you created in SP Page Builder few moments ago.
  • Now using # before ID name you can add menu lub sub-menu links. Don't forget that they are only local links in single page view.

Bear in mind, our element provides only basic designs - therefore if you will need a lot more polished and beautiful last end result you've got to make use of your own personal css designs and class'es in rows.

The single webpage web design can be a great solution for presenting certain product (new mobile application) or services (repair laptops, car, motorbikes and so on.). You should use it as being a multi page website or benefit from the 1 web page framework - all around you.

The whole world bad people never ever sleeps, rest however , you are certainly not device it's important to. So chill out, we will demonstrate you handful of guidelines.

Very first some points, Joomla 3.4 is very protected and stable edition of CMS. Even without having putting in more extensions it really should fight off assaults for very extended time. Essentially the most notable weakness of any CMS (Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla) arrived from people today smaller negligence or insufficient know-how. It is possible to hold the most vaule car as part of your neighborhood however, if you ignore to close the door - usually do not be amazed that somebody drove him away.

Joomla 3.4 Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: The Best Way to Pace Up Joomla 3.4 and Template

clock October 16, 2014 06:56 by author ben

You have Joomla 3.4 that is fairly quick CMS itself, but have you ever at any time puzzled why your website masses so slowly. What aspects have a decisive influence on these delays. Recognize that pace has become a major problem with regards to Seo. By rushing up Joomla, you may also supply a better experience to your clients, boost your professional apearance. Listed here are my reflections and ideas.


Lots of us we reside inside a planet in which, most of the time, much more is best. We ourselves or customers inquire us to include much more photos, banners, social icons, or more different modules that are overload our Joomla template. The problem with continuously attempting to improve content is it isn't going to often generate the most effective results. Incorporating a huge number of components does not imply you happen to be getting something significant completed. It isn't going to function this way. In next hand, this means that Much less could be Powerful.

By picking the crucial, we develop fantastic influence with minimal sources. When you first set a restrict on one thing (numer of modules, plugins, photos and so forth.), it will be considered a pretty arbitrary quantity, as it will consider a while to see what operates to your venture. Check and disable any Joomla extensions which you never use any more. Probably if returing consumers will see web site once again they are going to be suprised that some factors gones but they will be a lot more centered on these which you remaining. Consider your initial week with that restrict being an experiment. If it doesn't perform for you, then adjust it a bit. Then evaluate your present utilization levels and select a reduced restrict depending on everything you believe could be ideal.

How fast is you wheel chair?

Clearly, we wish our Joomla to provide articles (subpages) as fast as you can. Choose a hosting organization that owns servers in the region where your consumers are, and never always the best types inside the marketplace. Your internet host could become a buddy (assisting hand) or your worst nightmare. Of course you will find reliable hosting providers which provide a optimized servers constructed specifically for the open source CMS. By fine-tuning the two MySQL and Apache, WordPress & Joomla websites hosted on those platform perform noticeably faster than other web hosting providers. For example check provide presented by SiteGround internet hosting for Joomla and Wordpress sites.

How heavy is your site "baby"?

Wonder how big your webs site is now? Measuring the size and speed of the Joomla 3.4 website is always very important step. You can do this by using many different tools such as: Pingdom , PageSpeed Insights, webPageTest or the Page Speed add-on for Firebug, or the YSlow Chrome plugin. Test results will provide rich diagnostic information including resource loading waterfall charts, Page Speed optimization checks and suggestions for improvements.

Optimization settings

  • Turn on GZip Compression. On the Top Menu select System -> Global Configuration and click on Server (tab) -> GZIP Page Compression and set the option to ‘Yes’.
  • If you have a large number of images on your site, this setting can drastically impact the load times of your site. For example if you are using K2 component, you can set lower quality of generated images. K2 -> Parameters -> Images. By default there is 100%, but in most cases you can set 80% without harm. And soon all your images will be on the diet. Of course, you should test the settings and use the lowest acceptable value.
  • Enable Cache system - this will increase the load speed of the pages a lot. You set up the cache type in the Joomla Global Configuration -> System.
  • In template settings you will find also some settings which help you improve speed.

clock October 9, 2014 12:20 by author ben

The redefined Joomla launch technique which was lately released emphasizes the generation of normal updates in shorter timeframes than before, as this may ensure that the Joomla CMS is receiving continuous development and there is certainly the potential to get a lengthier support time period for major model releases. Each of the function proposals for Joomla 3.4 had been submitted by May 28, 2014 and also the release-candidate version should be accessible and originally this was scheduled for release by 30 July 2014, nevertheless it appears that there are some delays keeping items back again.

Joomla 3.4 Features

Joomla 3.4 concentrates on four main new features, even though most average users will only have the opportunity to notice 3 of these. The primary concept of this release is not to increase Joomla, but to begin the transition towards the new release cycle and provide main advancements within the Joomla package.

Joomla 3.4 De-couple weblinks from new installs.

This is the initial step in de-coupling parts from Joomla. At present Joomla consists of numerous parts out of the box, numerous of that are not always needed by the common user. Since these further CMS elements incorporate extra bodyweight to the Joomla package deal, but aren’t necessarily set to any use, then they serve to make the general bundle heavier than it needs to be. Weblinks is a great instance of the issue, and so from Joomla 3.4 com_weblinks and all connected modules and plugins will probably be removed from the Joomla set up package. It is a excellent initial step in creating Joomla more user-friendly and making the package deal lighter.

But really don't worry in case your a admirer from the weblinks element; it'll be still accessible for use within your Joomla set up, just not integrated within the main. Rather, it'll have an installable bundle like your typical Joomla extension. The GitHub undertaking is presently created and every part faraway from the main will probably be available in its very own repository in the Joomla undertaking. What is more, weblinks must even be additional for the JED (Joomla Extension Directory) in a new category for eliminated Joomla elements, such as any taken out later on. This additional step is likely to make it easy for user who nevertheless need the performance from the taken out parts to get them set up and running with merely a simply click in the Joomla administrator region.

Joomla 3.4 Ongoing Microdata Implementation

Microdata in Joomla was introduced using the release of 3.2, and Joomla 3.4 will carry on applying this function in Joomla’s core layouts. Since Joomla! 3.2 microdata has been accessible in many in the well-known main parts like com_content and com_contact so it’s likely that these functions will be added towards the few components that don’t however have it. You'll be able to read up on microdata and why it is essential for keeping your content comprehensible not simply for your customers, but for devices such as the Google Search bot to aid enhance your standing in research engines.

Joomla 3.4 Front-end Module Modifying

The title says all of it concerning this new feature. In Joomla! 3.2 you could have noticed small ‘edit’ icons showing up in each module whenever you are logged in around the front-end; clicking them would redirect you to definitely the module configuration page inside the back-end. Joomla 3.4 will modify this behaviour to allow you to modify modules with out the necessity to entry the administrator location, which will be an easier answer for beginners. This characteristic may also be useful if you don’t wish to share administrator accessibility with customers who need to have use of module configuration. With this particular change and the default ACL (Access Manage Listing) functions combined, Joomla will be able to provide almost limitless manage more than who accesses your site, and what they can perform.

Joomla 3.4 Composer Integration

This feature won't be of any fascination to non-developers, but it is nonetheless a thing that developers will definitely value. In brief, it’s large improvement for handling exterior dependencies in Joomla such as the Joomla! Framework and PHPMailer, but absolutely nothing that will be visible for a normal Joomla consumer.
