Responsive IFrame In Joomla 3

This is an issue that I have come across many times and I really liked this last solution I found from this site.

http://howtosurvivejoomla.altervista.org/tutorial/5-responsive-articles-iframe

I use the JCE pro and had a little trouble following the article, but the author did a great job putting the article together. Here is where the “Styles” area is in the Pro version.

Components >> JCE >> Profiles.

In the Profiles section click on “Default“.  Then go to the “Plugin Parameters” tab, and scroll down to the “Styles” section. Click on the “Styles” tab and the right side of the screen will bring up settings.

I was localhost and I just added the new CSS to my “custom” style sheet. I went back to the article and set the style of the IFrame I had already inserted through the JCE Pro and added the new style to it.

I hope this helps someone else out there…

 

Adding A Video To Joomla 3 Article / Page – Using JCE Pro

I needed to add a video to page/article in a Joomla! 3.8 site. I saw the JCE advertises as being able to do this with just a URL. I love the way WordPress embeds YouTube videos and hoped it would be the same experience. It wasn’t, but it wasn’t bad.

The first issue I had was my subscription was expired. That was a cheap fix. Less than 30 bucks and ready. After installing the Pro component I didn’t see where I could add video yet. I tried just the URL but that didn’t work. I solved my issue by adding the special toolbar in the JCE to the normal JCE toolbar. Here is a video of how to set this.

JCE Mediabox – Popup Icon Set To No But Still Showing

I installed the recent beta of the JCE’s Mediabox because Ryan is working on a responsive version. It is working well; however, I was having an issue making the Popup Icon not show. I set it to not show, but it showed up anyways.

jce-mediabox-icon

I was able to get it to not show by adding the following to my CSS.

.wf-icon-zoom-link {
display:none;
}

I discovered you can disable this globally by going to  Extensions >> Plugins  >> Mediabox 2 >> Options Tab.  Set Zoom/Popup Icons to No.

I hope this helps some else out there…

 

Upload .vcf files in joomla

I wanted vcards or .vcf files to uploaded and downloaded from a joomla site so the customer could update them themselves.

I had K2 installed on the site and it was easy for me to download the .vcf file, but uploading was unsupported.

JCE was installed and I discovered that JCE “File Manager” add-on has an allowable file extensions built in. It was easy for me to add the extension. Then I used “JCE File Browser” to upload the files. Here is the article that helped me out.
