ACYMailing Error 500 Layout listing not found.

I wanted to take this component for a test run. It is always on the top row of “Install from Web” tab. It is a hefty install. When finished I clicked on “Lists” to create a list and got the following error:

Error 500 Layout listing not found.

I googled and didn’t find a quick solution other than “did you re-install it”. I ran it again from the “Install from web” tab, and got the same error. I went to the site to download their latest package. It comes down as a .gz. I thought I needed to unzip it first and I did. I didn’t need to do that. I just use the .gz (gun zip).

I was now able to create a list and it retained my only user…me.

I found this article for using Chronoforms with ACYMailing to get subscribers. It worked great. Just a name, email field, and a submit button combined with an PHP script. The user gets an email to confirm they click on the link in the email and ACYMailing took care of the rest.

Vertical Align Text In li Tag Joomla Menu Button

I was matching another designer’s template where there are 4 big buttons, in different colors, with different icons, and different links.

Very nice. I was using Joomla 3.8 so I created a menu and gave it a style of the color of the button such as “red” for the first button, so each menu item had it’s own class. I had a difficult time when I had three words on the first button, but only 1 word on the other buttons. The line spacing to fit the three lines needed to be “line-height: 1.2em;”, but this made the text on the other three buttons at the top of the box.

The answer was the display option mixed with the line-height in combination with a dash of fixed height.  Then align it in the middle.

#feature-menu ul li a {
font-size:2vw;
line-height: 110px;
height: 120px;
display: table-cell;
vertical-align: middle;
}

Then overwrite that style with a specific line-height.

#feature-menu ul li a.red {
line-height: 1.4em;
}

I hope this helps someone else out there…
