If you are using Joomla 3.0 with the ISIS administrator template, and have installed some modules and themes like JA T3 Framework or GANTRY Framework, you might notice that radio switch buttons in your administration panel do not show their state.
Here is a screenshot of how settings “Hide / Show” buttons might show:

This can be fixed easily:
Edit the file:

 JOOMLA_ROOT/administrator/templates/isis/js/template.js 

Change the line (around 35) from:

 $(".btn-group input[checked=checked]").each(function() 

to

Alternative PHP Cache, APC, on GoDaddy Hosting

By |2012-10-03T17:29:40+01:00October 3rd, 2012|Technology, Web Development|

As I said earlier, Godaddy is implementing APC ( a great cache functionality) on its shared hosting plans. In a recent contact I had with them, it looks like the launch day is tomorrow.
Godaddy.comTill now, Godaddy disabled (by default) this extension for clients using actually Zend and Ioncube; good choice; as these 3 extensions represent an incompatibility risk.
If you want to benefit from the “awaited” great performance boosts with APC, you need to disable Zend and Ioncube extension and enable APC.

Enable APC on Godaddy.com Hosting

Here is how to do it:
Open your working php.ini/php5.ini file (it might be in a subfolder or on your root folder)
If you have Zend or Ioncube extensions enabled, and you are sure your sites will […]

Faster websites get better SEO scores and get better indexes in search engines, a Google employee once said "Website should be fast", your visitors will agree, trust me. Faster and optimized eCommerce websites do sell more than 40% more than slower ones, just because they are faster. You "will" agree once you see the money come ;) trust me.

GoDaddy Down

Godaddy.comWell, there are lots of news about GoDaddy.com being down, now more than 4 hours, but the question is: How Godaddy.com will compensate the losses?!
People hosting their websites on Godaddy.com servers, and its resellers, lost lots of money in this outage.
“Over 50 local Myrtle Beach hotels that use GoDaddy services through Fuel Interactive could be impacted by as much as $30,000 an hour, collectively, for each hour the sites are down.” says Wmbfnews. (1)

 

On the other hand, Disa Johnson says that Godaddy didn’t resolve the issue by themselves. It was the hacker who “had a heart” and let go!!!! (2)
How can making troubles for others be called “having a heart”??
Just search about this outage on Google […]

PHPMailer 5.1 in PrestaShop 1.4

Trying to integrate PHPMailer in Prestashop and use it instead of SWIFT Mailer 3 (which is the default mailer script included with Prestashop 1.4), I spent hours to no avail and was getting the Could not instantiate mail function error.

mail() function

The mail() function by itself  was working correctly before and after loading Prestashop and every passed argument seemed to be correct. I did get the “Bad parameters to mail() function, mail not sent” error for mail() too.

Debugging and Abracadabra!

I’ve done lots of debugging and found in my case that the following functions were causing the error, when passing the $Subject parameter to mail():

SecureHeader();
EncodeHeader();

To solve the “Could not instantiate mail function” error in PHPMailer, […]

En plein developpement

En plein développement de plusieurs modules PrestaShop, j’ai rencontrer plusieurs souci dans les code du package PrestaShop. Ce qui m’étonne, c’est qu’il y a beaucoup de gens qui utilise PrestaShop, même si c’est du gros n’importe quoi en terme de codage et programmation.

 

Alors pourquoi je créer des module?

Tout simplement parcequ’il y a de la demande.
