Using NSLookup To Fix Email Bounceback

Needed to find the my Reverse DNS to fix an issue with Craigslist not being able to verify my my IP / Domain Name combination. My co-worker reminded me of “NSLookup”.

  • Open the command prompt
  • Type in “nslookup”
  • You will see your Gateway information.
  • Type in “set type=mx” and hit enter
  • Type in the domain name “somewhere.com” and hit enter.

I hope this helps someone else out there….

Joomla 4 Gantry 5

I have enjoyed using Gantry 5 but Joomla 4 is around the corner…do they work together yet is the question I have. I had Joomla 4 installed lets try it. Well that didn’t go well. I got Gantry installed; however, when I installed the Hydrogen theme I got the following error.

The problem is I can no longer get back into the “Control Panel”. I was able to get the site back by going to “System” on the sidemenu and went to Manage >> Extensions. I was able to remove Hydrogen, but this didn’t fix the Control Panel issue. Once I removed the Gantry 5 the control panel was working fine.

In my opinion is Gantry is not ready to play with Joomla 4 yet. Rocketthemes is hopeful they will get this worked out.
