Joomla 3.4.3 Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: How to insert a PDF file in a Joomla article with JCE File Manager

How to insert a PDF file in a Joomla article with JCE File Manager

Joomla is an open source content management system that allows you to build web sites and powerful online applications. This award-winning web site software contains easy-to-use features and it is freely available to everyone. In this tutorial, I will show you how to accomplish the same using the File Manager plug-in for JCE.

Using the JCE File Manager makes the job a lot easier. The File Manager is a plug-in to the very popular Joomla Content Editor. The plug-in is part of the package you get when subscribing. JCE itself is free, but the File Manager, Media Manager, Image Manager Extended and some other plug-ins are paid.

 

This is how you insert a PDF file into a Joomla article with JCE:

Create a new article and a text. Select the text and click the "Insert / edit File" button

You will see the File Manager window.

Select the folder you want to upload your file to (or create it using the "New Folder" button).

Then, click the "Upload file" button.

You will see the upload window.

Click "Browse" and select the file from your harddisk. If you're using Firefox, you can drag and drop the file into the upload window. You can add as many files as you want to in this step.

If you try to upload a file that is bigger than 1024 Kb, you will get an error message like this:

To adjust the file size allowed, go to JCE Administration -> Profiles -> The profile you are using (normally "Default").

Then click the"Plugin Parameters" tab at the top and the "File Manager" tab on the left.

You can now see your server's max upload size and adjust the allowed size. In the below example I've set it to 5 Mb (5000 Kb).

Go back to your article and try to upload again.

You should now see the file(s) in the upload window after browsing for them (as long as they are below your set maximum upload size, that is).

Click "Upload"-

The file(s) will upload to the web server

When the file(s) are uploaded, close the upload window and you will see the file(s) in the File Manager.

You can now adjust the parameters available before you insert the PDF link into the article.

As you can see, you can add an icon (will be set automatically according to the file type), a size parameter or the date. You can also adjust the actual anchor text (the link text) from this window as well. When clicking the document file, you will notice that the File Manager asks you if you want to change the link text to the file name. Sometimes this is a good idea, other times I want to have a more descriptive text as the link. That's really up to you to decide.

Click "Insert" and you will return to the article with the link inserted.

In this case, I chose to add the size to the link. However, if I decide that I don't want it after all, I can remove it directly from the editor. It is actually a normal link, so it behaves exactly the same way as any other link. So, if I remove the size, I get the final PDF link like this:

Even though it seems like a lot og steps, once you get the hang of the technique it is really fast to do. And much more efficient than doing it with the Joomla core, which really is a kind of workaround.



Joomla Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to fix cannot access the private section of this site on Joomla

clock August 19, 2015 06:32 by author ben

This was a pretty interesting issue to find and resolve. It's an database 'error' of sorts that is pretty simple to fix. First of all this is all due to a parent<-child condition that has gone horribly wrong in an update or something else. Most likely you will find this issue in the table "assets". You will need to find your database prefix fist of all, easiest found in the configuration and the option "$dbprefix". I will call it "prefix_" here for ease of typing.

So to find if you have this issue you can run the following in an sql manager of your choosing (mysql or phpmyadmin shoulden't make any differents, i did it in the cli mysql)

SELECT id,parent_id,title FROM `prefix_assets` WHERE parent_id=0;

If you find that there are multiple rows then hit the above do the following

UPDATE `prefix_assets` SET parent_id=1 WHERE parent_id=0 AND NOT id=1;

You should also verify that the "Root Asset" has id 1 and parent_id 0

SELECT id,parent_id,title FROM `prefix_assets` WHERE id=0 OR parent_id=0;

this should give the result

id    parent_id    title
 1    0               Root Asset

if not run

UPDATE `prefix_assets` SET parent_id=0 WHERE title="Root Asset";

This should have fixed the issue.

Joomla Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Solving cannot access the private section of this site on Joomla

clock August 10, 2015 06:17 by author ben

You just upgraded your Joomla site to latest Joomla 2.5 or 3.* and your regular, registered users cannot login to the frontend, seeing this error:

"You cannot access the private section of this site"

The causes are multiple, and there are many fixes out on the net. But the most common cause of this is the damaged "#_assets" table.

You can read more about how to fix it here.

But if you are in a hurry, and want a quick and dirty solution, try this:

  • Open your database with your favorite tool (phpMyAdmin is ready to use in most hosting accounts)
  • Locate the #_assets table (# is the replacement of your prefix)
  • Check if the Root asset has the "parent_id" is set to 0, "level" is set to 0 and the "lft" set to 1 (or 0). also check to not have any other entries set to "level=0"
  • If you are these fields set to any other values, try to reset them to 0 and 1 respectively.
  • If that does not fix it, try to set the "lft"value to 0 - is highly non-standard, but fixes in most cases the issues.

If that does not fixes it, you have still all the time on the Earth to read that great Joomla article! (Highly recommended).

Ah, almost forgot. Do a backup first. And be sure, that the backup works. And don't forget, that this is qualifying as a core hack. Don't do it withouth the safety belt on!

Joomla Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Google can’t access your Joomla sites

clock July 31, 2015 06:22 by author ben

If you’re a Joomla user who has connected his sites to Google Webmaster, you might have received the following message from the Google Search Console: “Google can’t access CSS and JS files”.

A while ago, Google announced that whether a website is mobile friendly or not is a factor in ranking websites. This message seems to be a result – Google is actively scanning websites using Webmaster and testing if they’re mobile friendly.

Since you’re blocking files Google wants to access, it could make the big G think that your site is, in fact, not mobile friendly. To avoid this, you need to tweak your robots.txt file. This is a file in your root folder which determins which robots – like Google’s bots that scan your site – can and can’t visit which folders.

To resolve this problem, you need to remove two lines from the robots.txt file; the line which disallows /media/ and /templates/. Doing this will grant Google access to the files it needs to analyze your website.

Joomla Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Solving Joomla "allow_url_fopen" is disabled.

clock July 6, 2015 06:05 by author ben

Yesterday I got an email from a very nice customer :) He said that whenever he tried to access the Template Manager he gets the following error:

"Cannot use a stream transport when "allow_url_fopen" is disabled."

Basically, the solution is very simple - enable "allow_url_fopen" in your PHP Configuration (php.ini for example or through your .htaccess file). So that's what I told him - "Contact your Hosting Support and ask them to enable "allow_url_fopen".

So far so good! But after few hours I got a reply from him saying that his Host has rejected his request with the following message:

"Unfortunately allow_url_fopen is extremely insecure so it cannot be enabled on shared servers.
Make sure the template is coded for Joomla 3.x version and also you can ask the template team to use cURL function instead of allow_url_fopen."


Honestly, I was almost shocked by this reply! Yes, I know there are quite some Hosting Providers that disable "allow_url_fopen" on their shared servers but this is either because they do not have enough knowledge or because they want to make you upgrade your Hosting Plan and that's how to charge you more money :)

So this is the main purpose of this article - to shut your Hosting Provider mouth or at least to educate them why "allow_url_fopen" MUST be enabled.

Enabling "allow_url_fopen" is a core Joomla requirement and it is written on their website. In order to have a properly working Joomla Website you must enable it. Just have a look at the following links and screenshots... they should be enough even for a small kid to understand that "allow_url_fopen" must be enabled and that this is not a Template/Framework related requirement, it is a Joomla core requirement!

There is nothing insecure with "allow_url_fopen". The security issue comes from "allow_url_include" and your Hosting Provider should know this very well.

So, if your Hosting Provider does not want to enable "allow_url_fopen" for you, the only smart thing you can do is to change them. Yes, simply find a normal, good Host!

Guys, feel free to forward this article to your Hosting Provider if needed. I'm very curious what their reply will be ;)
