In your header you have a canonical link (on line 11, just under <title>). It looks like this on your page: <link href="http://escene.ir/component/products/?task=view.12" rel="canonical" /> This element tells Google your preferred URL for a page which has several urls to choose from. This is to prevent you from being penalized for having ...

Both Joomla's and Drupal's admin sections aren't great, but Joomla will be much easier to manage, for both you and your end user. Drupal's admin just isn't intuitive by any sense of the word. They're trying to fix it for Drupal 7, but I have my doubts about its effectiveness. Wordpress is by far the easiest to manage. All of the communities are large and ...

Robots.txt is not used for preventing users to browse directories. Directory browsing is handled by the web server settings. All robots.txt does is asking search engines to not index the content within the directories that you specify.

You are definitely hacked, hackers recently have been employing methods which make the site appear normal to a direct user, but when coming from Google will redirect to their website. You basically need to change all your passwords, and then sift through your code. As your tags state you're using joomla you should be able to replace all the joomla core ...

Google just wrote a blog post that should answer your question very well Q: Do the 404 errors reported in Webmaster Tools affect my site’s ranking? A: 404s are a perfectly normal part of the web; the Internet is always changing, new content is born, old content dies, and when it dies it (ideally) returns a 404 HTTP response code. ...

Not sure if you want to redirect only 144=>1556 or it is just an example. Anyway you can try this: Options +FollowSymlinks -MultiViews RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|&)id=144(&|$) [NC] RewriteRule ^(index\.php)/?$ /$1?id=1556 [NC,R,L] Explanation: RewriteCond is making sure there is id=144 in query string RewriteRule is ...

It's highly dependent on your hosting provider. I they allow you to use FTP you just upload your theme and select it under Joomla control panel.

Start from Scratch If you have a recent database and files copy nuke all and start all over again. This is truly the best way there is when you have been hacked in a massive way. No Good Backups Most of the time there is no good backup in my experience. And I guess you do not either. If you did a scan with ClamAV and or online scans with sites like ...

I agree mostly with all the above answered. Yet so, will add some bits: During some time, was said Drupal was sort of preferred by people wanting more control over html and css, and Joomla being easier for the non coder people. These things are often little more than rumors, but was said by many. As softwares evolve, these situations change drastically, ...

You don't specify which version of Joomla! you're using but in general you can specify the template in use two ways. First off you can specify the default template via the "Template Manager" - this is the same in both 1.5.x and the 2.5 series of Joomla! The second option is that you can specify a particular template to be used for a particular menu item. ...

Under Help > System Info > Directory Permissions, make sure all the folders listed are writeable, particulaly the tmp and components folders. On the "PHP Information" tab, make sure it lists some form of ZIP support appropriate to the file you're upload (e.g. 'zip' or 'gzip'). The most common reason for 500 errors though is a misconfigured .htaccess file. ...

Assuming you don't want to use a specific Classified Ads Content Management System, I think that at this point you should consider Drupal as well. Drupal is very effective on user/permission management by default, and Drupal 7 already allows custom content types by default. There's even a module for that: http://drupal.org/project/ed_classified and ...

It's still going to be hard diagnosing the problem without disabling suspected components (diagnosing performance problems is like diagnosing any other sort of problem; it's a process of elimination, which requires isolating/controlling different variables to test different hypotheses), but useful tools to have are: Monitoring / visualization tools: e.g. ...

No, don't copy the tables - that schema has changed quite a bit. You can install the free JUpgrade extension, which will download and install a 2.5 into a subfolder of your website and populate the new DB with your content, categories, users, etc. It can also handle some 3rd party extensions like Community Builder, Virtuemart and Kunena. That's the official ...

The paid memberships pro plugin works well, it supports Stripe, PayPal Website Payments Pro, PayPal Express, or Authorize.net for processing payments.

The only solution I found until now (Joomla 3.0) is adding the following snippet in your template's index.php file before <jdoc:include type="head" />. The snippet for my page looks like this: <?php if (!strncmp($this->getTitle(), "Home", 4)) { $app = JFactory::getApplication(); $this->setTitle( $app->getCfg( 'sitename' ) ); } ?> ...

The feature you are looking for is called OPEN GRAPH. Its just a bunch of meta tags you place in the head of your site which tell Facebook information about it. That way when someone shares your site on Facebook, Facebook will use that information to populate the post. This includes the share image. Here are the meta tags we use (replace xxx with ...

HTML5 uses better markups that are not only easier to use but also is slightly better for SEO purposes, while its not amazing for SEO as Google yets to favor HTML5 websites it does better from Rich Markups and the ASIDE elements and Articles which helps Google establish what the page is about and maybe elements which have nothing to do with the page itself. ...

It's a tough one to answer since you may need better hosting no matter what you do due to the sheer amount of visitors you have at once. But just like a car if you want to make it faster you throw out things you don't need which add weight to the car, by removing the weight you go faster. So you really want to focus on reducing requests on your server by ...

If you are using Wordpress now, and simply trying to redirect old Joomla urls to your new urls I suggest using a plugin to make your life easier. I recommend this plugin a lot: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/redirection/ Also keep in mind that you should use fancy permalinks within Wordpress instead of the standard ID numbers. You can find this ...

Your regular expression has the following problems: It only has .* for the "site" and "sectionname", but is missing one for the "categoryname". Based on your example, there should be a third directory level in your regex. You have parenthesis around items which you don't need to reference, but no parenthesis around the ID, which you will need to ...

The meta tags are sometimes useful as they offer more fine-grained guidelines for robots than robots.txt. They can also be used if you do not have access to the root directory of the server. However, the robots.txt is more powerful, as it can be used to restrict access to entire directories (while the scope of a meta tag is always constrained to the single ...

I'm assuming that the bind.php file is not actually a part of Joomla, but rather a malicious script that the hacker uploaded to your site. In particular, just looking at the request parameters, it appears likely that the script is being used to send e-mail spam, possibly using someone else's hijacked e-mail account. Here's what the request parameters in ...

You can specify page titles in "Parameters (System)" in the menu item. Joomla 1.5.9 is very old now and you should at least update to Joomla 1.5.26 and the security patch that was released in August to keep your website secure. Ideally you should be thinking about migrating to Joomla 2.5 or Joomla 3.2.

You've made the redirect correctly. It works well. However you must wait until Google recrawl and reindex it before it appears on search results.

I guess a 301 redirect is certainly not an option since the whole site structure will be different. But if you are coming from Joomla to WordPress, the site structure will be predictably different and thus 301 redirects are both feasible and desired. As you can see in this other question, it doesn't have to be all that complicated of a rule to ...

I don't know much about the newest versions of joomla, but looking this up on the web shows that some features of the admin portal are hard-coded to the default admin URL. People recommend password protecting the admin directory through .htaccess for better security. The other option is to use extensions, but as a general rule I hate using extensions to ...

You are 303 redirecting to a login page which then redirects back: $ curl --head http://gsa.ece.umd.edu/ HTTP/1.1 303 See other Date: Sun, 25 May 2014 10:45:59 GMT Server: Apache/2.2.25 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.25 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_bwlimited/1.4 X-Powered-By: PHP/5.4.21 Set-Cookie: c32b08af5ad5c16062381828f6a1b64e=6d66a9870a7067c444930d8deb190cd9; ...
