Project Name: Homepage SEO

JoomSEF rewrites URL that Joooid client uses to access site, generating a "No component installed" error when trying to login from Android client. The solution is to modify JoomSEF settings to keep old URL [site]/component/joooid

  • Components > ARTIO JoomSEF > Manage Extensions > Joooid
  • Handling: Don't SEF / Add Menu Title to URL: No

Changes may vary depending on your original settings

Removing link alias from SEF url in JoomSEF:

JoomSEF > Manage Extensions > Content > Common > Add Menu Title to URL: NO

JoomSEF gives a 404 error in all pages but homepage due to an empty .htaccess, copying Joomla's default .htaccess fixes it.

If you want to create usergroups with article editing capabilities, don't use 'Registered' group as parent of your new UGs, or you risk not to include other critical permissions like Media Manager access. It's safer to create groups from 'Author' group at least, and denying access to other resources as needed.

New custom usergroups are children of 'Registered' UG and were granted access to their respective categories BUT were not granted access to Media Manager. Problem was solved by modifying MM permissions to the usergroups.

Never, NEVER simply rewrite quickstart's articles in order to populate your site, blog ordering becomes a nightmare #notetoself #joomla
