How To Create A Parallax Effect in Gantry

This actually isn’t just for Ganty. It just involves a little CSS. I needed it for a section in a Gantry template, but you can use this anywhere.

I got this set up from good old W3Schools so you know it is solid.

It is really just locking down the position of the background image and setting it to cover. I didn’t have to specify the height of the div in my case.

I hope this helps someone else out there…

Solved – 500 Fabrik has generated an incorrect query for the list

I moved a Joomla 3.7.2 site that has a Fabrik application in it to a new host, and when I did I got the “500 Fabrik has generated an incorrect query for the list…” error.

I made sure the connection was good. The issue turned out to be the “List” was locked.

Wanted to play around in Fabrik again but got this error when trying to install.

Strict standards: Declaration of FabTable::getFields() should be compatible with JTable::getFields($reload = false) in C:\wamp\www\grimeymedia\administrator\components\com_fabrik\tables\fabtable.php on line 119

I downloaded the master .zip file from Git Hub.

https://github.com/Fabrik/fabrik

This didn’t install well. Missing XML file error.

I finally just used the Joomla Web Installer. It installed version 3.6 of Fabrik and worked well with my Joomla 3.7.2 core package.

I hope this helps someone else out there…

WordPress Change Author Name On Blog Posts

I started a blog at work and have other staff contributing. I noticed my display name was my login name. Not really what I wanted. I started by putting in my first and last name like the other contributor did, but it was still my login name as the post author.

The following link lead me to switching the author on the post.

https://www.siteground.com/kb/how_to_change_the_author_of_a_post_in_wordpress/

The option to change author wasn’t present, so I went up top of the screen and selected “screen options”.   “Author” was unchecked. Once checked I could see below where I could switch the author; however, it was still my login name.  The next link got me my final answer.

http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-add-or-change-your-full-name-in-wordpress/

In my actual profile I had to go down to “Display name”. In the dropdown I was able to select the name I wanted with the posts.

I hope this helps someone else out there…

Joomla Update 3.7.1 Issues – None So Far

The Joomla 3.7.1 update came yesterday and I really wasn’t expecting a new update so fast. I had 1 issue with the 3.7.0 update and T3 Framework plugin, but I upgraded the Framework plug-in  and everything was fixed.

I upgraded a dozen sites to 3.7.1 so far and no issues.

I hope this helps someone else out there…

Joomla Turn Off PHP Version Warning In The Administrative Area

After upgrading my Joomla sites to 3.7 whenever I log into the back-end I get a warning that my PHP will not be supported in another year.

My friend at BMoreCreative showed me to turn this off.

  • Once logged into the administrative area go to Extensions >> Plug-ins.
  • Do a search for “quick”.
  • Uncheck “Quick Icon – PHP Version Check”

I hope this helps someone else out there…

Godaddy CPanel PHP 2m upload_max_filesize – How To Change.

My Joomla install told me the upload_max_filesize is 2M. I changed this in my PHP5.ini file on the server, but this had no effect. I learned later that this takes time to become in effect.

A faster way is to “PHP Selector”. You will see “Switch to PHP Options” in the upper-right. Click on this.  Click on the number next to “upload_max_filesize” and change it to what you want. Godaddy said to keep it under a Gig or you will have issues.

I hope this helps someone else out there…
