  • SEO is good. SEO is great. Making search-engine spiders visiting your site is even better! Or not??? Recently one of my client has complained, that he was almost banned from one host, because the search-engine bots where "hammering" - read overloading - the server. Ouch...

  • A client of mine asked this question: "How can I allow registered users to log in and see the site even in offline mode, without giving them Super user privileges?"

  • The Joomla has a nifty, often used feature, along other information can show the content item's/articles author name just below the title. It's useful especially when the site is maintained by a number of editors and/or contributors. But sometimes - especially when the site is just launched - all authors are the same.

  • Joomla generally is running at an acceptable speed -  users aren't seeing differences between an average Joomla site and another CMS'es. But what if they do? What can cause the (sometime unbearable) slowness of some Joomla sites?

  • Sometimes when you publish a new menu item, and everything seems to be OK, when you try to access the new menu item you just created you hit the wall: instead of the intended content you'll see the following error:

    You are not authorized to view this resource.
    You need to login.

    Even more confusing can be the situation when a link which used to work behaves this way. The target content item is published, access rights are set to Public, and you still got this message! What can be wrong here?
