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.

comment Why in the search results of Google does not appear the unique name of my website?
Does Google report "Did you mean: ..."? OR "Showing results for .... / Search instead for [your-name]"??

comment IP Address is only 1 period
Actually, I say deprecated, but I'm not sure that line-end (inline) comments have ever been "supported"! Only full line comments are allowed. Line-end comments won't always break, however, it depends on the directive (the arguments supplied), the module, the server. To be honest I used to use them, until I changed server and it unexpectedly broke! Both the Apache 1.3 and Apache 2.2 docs state "Comments may not be included on a line after a configuration directive."

Probably need to remove the inline comments. These are deprecated. On later versions of Apache this will result in a 500 internal server error. Minor tidy up... no need for the NC flag when checking a dot. The L flag is also unnecessary when specifying the F flag; it is implied.

Aside: I assume you're the same user as the question asker - but you seem to be connected as a different user?

comment Canonicalization effect on SERP
Also specify the preferred domain in GWT and make sure you've verified ownership of both the www and non-www versions of the domain. Reference: support.google.com/webmasters/answer/44231?hl=en

comment Improve load speed of web page with many images
"4.4 MB / 62 Images" - This is just the home page?! I would have thought 4.4 MB of images could be greatly optimised without really "sacrificing quality"?

comment Apache 2.4 Loads Image Files Even Without Extension. Why?
Glad you found it! And what was in userdir.conf? If it's Options +MultiViews then Stephen's answer is really the correct one.

comment Apache 2.4 Loads Image Files Even Without Extension. Why?
"A search for MultiViews in httpd.conf" - does httpd.conf Include any additional config files?

Have you tried a different file? Perhaps even a .png? A different student account?! Different browsers (just in case it's not a server issue)??!

comment Apache 2.4 Loads Image Files Even Without Extension. Why?
@BobBrown: The 500 error is probably because the AllowOverride directive in httpd.conf is blocking MultiViews in .htaccess (so it can't be enabled either).

comment Apache 2.4 Loads Image Files Even Without Extension. Why?
@BobBrown Just to be sure, have you explicitly tried Options -MultiViews in .htaccess, to disable it - just in case it is being enabled somewhere!?

@ChrisBurgess A final URL of J3 could also be an internal rewrite using mod_rewrite.

comment Apache 2.4 Loads Image Files Even Without Extension. Why?
@BobBrown Have you cleared the browser cache? And MultiViews is not enabled in .htaccess?

comment Apache 2.4 Loads Image Files Even Without Extension. Why?
Note that MultiViews must be explicitly enabled by name, it's not part of the All option - so is never enabled by default. So, if you are in control of the server it might be preferable to remove the directive that enables it in order to "disable" it.

comment reverting back from https to http and google still displaying site as https
Unfortunately that's kinda like shooting yourself in the foot - if you are wanting to maintain your ranking. The site migration should have occurred before the security cert was removed. You need to follow the same procedure for a site migration (linked above), except you obviously can't redirect the old URLs. Eventually Google will reindex your site.

comment Should I use SQL to save time? and How?
Just to balance the equation, since there is already an answer suggesting a SQL database... as John suggests this is a matter of opinion and depends on your situation. It sounds as if you have a small finite amount of information that needs to change, by just one person. I would perhaps consider simply using a PHP include (possibly an assoc array) that contains this information, rather than a SQL database (the assoc array is the "database"). A SQL database won't necessarily be quicker or easier to update and it won't instantly fix having to update .htaccess and the uploading of images.
