Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Joomla

profile for w3d on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites


User "penders" on WebmasterWorld.


For some reason this question (from Oct 2010) has more recently been deleted but was still available on stackprinter.com. I had the accepted answer and was looking high and low for it to use as reference on another question.

Do you just have one VirtualHost?

comment mp4 videos are showing up as “corrupt” after uploading them to web server?
Well, you said it was "fine" - but when you download it, it is corrupt - this is very strange and a different issue, suggesting a problem with the file transfer. Is the file size the same? (But this isn't just a file transfer problem - since I can replicate the symptoms in Firefox and Chrome.)

"Does the original file from the Apple website play OK for you?" - This file is not "corrupt".

comment mp4 videos are showing up as “corrupt” after uploading them to web server?
I think this is something to do with the format of the file and browser compatibility? I get the same if I simply link directly to the uploaded file in the browser. However, downloading and playing the file locally should work OK - providing you have the correct codecs installed on your machine. Does the original file from the Apple website play OK for you?

comment Google indexing pages with #! although we don't have any
Just wondering, if you aren't using #! URLs, why are you using _escaped_fragment_ and the Google AJAX spec?

comment Common Header & Footer for HTML Site
From an Apache perspective... The .shtml file extension for SSI is just the default, you can change it. In fact, you can use any file extension (or no file extension) with any server-side technology if you wish - either by changing the server config or URL rewrites in ".htaccess" (or IIS equiv). "no dynamic content in the site, so going php or asp etc is not warranted" - Well, you're dynamically including a header/footer, so why not use PHP?

comment <br> in meta-description, ok or not?
It is common for Google to vary the description that appears in the SERPs depending on what the user searches for. So, even when the meta description may appear to be perfectly valid, it might not be used. So it would seem that your test is working "normally".

comment <br> in meta-description, ok or not?
What version of HTML? Presumably these special chars >, < are not HTML encoded - is this valid HTML?

comment How to handle non-existent subdirectories?
But presumably /user and /fishes are not actually sub directories on the file system either - in which how would Apache know the difference? If /about/123 returns a 200 status, what response are you actually returning?

comment My Apache access log contains weird GET and POST requests, what can I do?
If you get a lot of these hacky requests then it would perhaps be more efficient to terminate the request and return an empty response.

comment Moving from http to https - Google webmaster tools | Bing webmaster tools
If you have both http and https then you need to add both as separate sites in GWT and verify them both. Https might just be a "different protocol" but it's technically possible to serve entirely different content from each. Likewise, an xml sitemap cannot contain both http and https urls, however if you have verified both in gwt then google lets you (google only afaik).

comment What is the best way to have the same website in multiple domains?
As dm-guy states in the comment above, if this domain has no history then bleh.com will not show up in the search results. No advantage.
