One of the best new features in Joomla 3.2 is Content History.

For those that are starting new sites in Joomla 3.2, the feature is enabled by default.

Enable within Article Manager

How to Enable Content History in Joomla! 3.2

Enter an article, make a few revisions, then save. Make a few more revisions, then click save again. Finally, click on the Versions button to see the saved changes.

In the above screenshot everything’s working. I can now preview a revision, restore it, compare it to another, keep it on, and delete it.

Note, the Keep On/Forever option allows you to store that version indefinitely. Using an example is an easy way to explain this feature. Remember the Maximum Versions setting? If you set that to 5, then 5 versions of that article are saved. On the 6th one, the 1st version gets deleted so that there are still 5 versions left total. What if you want to keep the first one or any other article? That’s where the Keep On setting comes into play. If you enable it for that article version, it won’t automatically get deleted from the list, but rather will remain there untouched. It’s basically a "lock" feature that prevents deletion.

Enable Content History in the Other Components

You can repeat the above process for the other components that have Content History built-in:

  • Banners
  • Contacts
  • Newsfeeds
  • Tags
  • Users
  • Weblinks
  • And any custom component that integrates with Content History.

Joomla Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Use Content Versioning in Joomla 3.2

clock January 7, 2014 10:59 by author Mike

In previous versions of Joomla, you are able to change the articles as well as categories and use that latest version only. In the latest version of Joomla 3.2, you can make changes and keep track of the changes, make comparisons or restore all changes that have been made. Content versioning is one of the key new features of Joomla 3.2.

Use Versions in the Article edit page

1. Go to Article manager.

2. Click on the Options button to check if Versioning is enabled and configure how many copies of articles do you want to keep.

3. Click on the Editing Layout tab on the Options page and check that parameters marked with a red square on the following screenshot are enabled and configured.

4. Start writing new articles or edit an existing one.

5. I chose to edit an existing Joomla demo article and add some new content at the end of the article. Save your changes when you are done but don’t leave this article editing page (just click on the Save button and not on the Save & Close button).

Joomla article, updated and saved

6. Click on the Versions button in the Joomla toolbar to open the Item Versions History dialog.

click versions button

7. You can see the Item Version History dialog on the next screenshot. Currently an active copy of the article is marked with a gold star after the information about the date and time it was saved.

8. If you select multiple history items, you can compare changes between them by clicking on the Compare button in the toolbar.

9. Compare view will show you changes between versions in all article fields by default. It is important to say that version keeps track not only about the changes in the article content but also about the changes in all article configurations fields also.

10. If you click on the Show HTML Code button, you can see the underlying HTML code of the articles and compare with the source level changes that happened in the article.

11. If you click on the No button (or Yes button of this is already enabled) under the Keep Forever column, you can mark history items as permanent. That means that this history item won’t be deleted in history rotation when the history item number reaches the number of items defined in the Options that we configured in the step 2 of this tutorial.

clicking to prevent version deleted

12. The first item in the item history table is marked as permanent and thus it won’t be removed from the history rotation.

13. If you decide that you want to go back in time and that you want to republish the item version you did before, just select that item in the item history list and click on the Restore button

click to restore previous version

Conclusion

Over time, the goal of Joomla's developers is to unify the way that Joomla handles content whether it's in Joomla articles, user information or data from other extensions. This version control is a great start in that direction.



Joomla 3.2 Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to fix a blank screen after upgrading to Joomla 3.2

clock December 20, 2013 07:46 by author ben

In the process of updating some of our Joomla template packages from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.2, I've just come across an easily circumvented bug during the update process

What is the error?

The error occurs during the installation of the Joomla 3.2 via the Joomla Update component and ends in the user being presented with a blank screen. In most cases a blank screen means that there is a php error and because error reporting is set to default the error is not displayed on the screen and so all we see is a blank screen.

How to turn error reporting on in Joomla if you can't access the administrator.
To confirm the error that you are dealing with you need to turn error reporting on in the site's global configuration. Normally this is accessible via the control panel however since it's not possible to access any pages in the administrator you need to adjust the setting manually.

1. In your site's root locate the file called configuration.php




2. Open the file with a text or code editor and edit the current setting for error reporting.



3. The default setting is usually "default" and so in order to display errors on the page you need to change this settign to maximum.


4. After doing this and refreshing the front or back end of your site you should see the following error.

Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in /PATH-TO-YOUR-SITE/plugins/system/remember/remember.php on line 94

Now we know what we are dealing with
So now that we have a discernible error on the page we know which fiel is causing the issue and gives us some material to start doign a google search with.

The solution
The solution is to temporarily disable the remember.php file which is a part of the core Joomla installation. Renaming files in your installation with error reporting on is a very useful tool to investigate the cause of errors in your Joomla installation.





If all goes well after you refresh the page you should now be able to navigate around the administrator.
Renamed the remember.php file to the original name again the site functioned properly.

Joomla Hosting :: New Features of Joomla 3.2

clock December 4, 2013 07:38 by author Mike

Joomla 3.2 is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.

Joomla 3.2 is truly a Something New for Everyone release, which standard-term support release and is a one-click upgrade (not a migration) from previous Joomla 2.5 and 3 series releases.

Joomla 3.2 Hosting Features
Here is a list of the top new features worth checking out in Joomla 3.2:

  • Content History - Content versioning is Joomla's feature for storing, comparing, and reverting content. For example, you can use it to change back to a previous revision of an article if a mistake happens.
  • JUX Improvements -There have been dozens of improvements to the Joomla User eXperience (JUX) to provide a more user-friendly CMS. Two of my favorites are the cleaned up control panel and top menu. I especially love the way the new control panel looks.
  • Front-end Administration of Global Configuration Settings - Joomla now has two new menu item types that allow end-users to change some of the settings from the front-end. The component uses a web-services approach to change the settings.
  • TinyMCE Update - TinyMCE has been updated to 4.0 and it looks amazing. Just compare the before (above) and after (below) screenshots to decide for yourself.
  • Install from Web - The Install from Web feature will include free and commercial extensions, with commercial extensions redirecting to the developers' sites for payment, then automatic installation.
  • Joomla Multilingual-site Automatic - For those wanting a multi-lingual site, you'll now be able to set one up automatically during Joomla's initial installation saving you precious setup time.
  • Improved Template Manager - All that could be done in Template Manager was to edit pre-existing CSS files of templates, to edit root template files, and to duplicate templates.
  • Post-install Messages - There's now a post-install component that is used to notify admins of important information when Joomla or an extension is installed or updated.
  • RAD (Rapid Application Development) Layer - Joomla's new RAD layer is a rapid application development framework on top of Joomla.
  • AJAX Interface - oomla 3.2 has also added an interface for AJAX entry points. This will save development time and also provide standardization for 3rd party custom extensions.
  • Micro-data Semantics Library - Another Library that has been added for developers is one that implements http://schema.org micro-data semantics.
  • HTML5 Form Fields and Attributes - improvement for developers is the addition new HTML form fields and attributes.
  • Two Factor Authentication - TFA produces an extra temporary security code that is then sent privately to the user (e.g. to their smart phone app) and which allows them to login. This prevents unauthorized login attempts.
  • BCrypt encryption of Passwords - Joomla now provides an even stronger password encryption method using BCrypt.
  • MooTools to jQuery Conversion - Much of the Joomla Core has been converted from MooTools to jQuery, as jQuery has become the default Joomla library in Joomla 3.
