Editing entries in backend changes owner to Superadministrator

  • PDF
  • Print
  • E-mail

Question

When a blog entry is edited from the Joomla administrator backend the owner is always reverted back to the Superadministrator.

Answer

This is due to the fact that the owner of the item won't be listed among the users for the Creator under the publishing tab if they don't have the ability to add content in standard Joomla.

Unfortunately there is no workaround for this problem yet, hopefully there will be a change to Joomla so that the owner of the item is also listed in the drop-down. You can read more on this subject in a thread on the Support Forum.

 

Items won't save when using OpenSEF

  • PDF

  • E-mail

Question

When using the OpenSEF component, saving entries in the frontend won't work and the user is redirected to the frontpage.

Answer

This is due to the fact that OpenSEF doesn't recognize the form in the component and just redirects to the frontpage instead. At the moment I don't know if the OpenSEF developers will fix this.

There are however two workarounds for this problem. The first is that you go to the OpenSEF configuration and turn off "Enforce Canonical URLs?" under the Features tab. The other solution is to turn off SEF for the Mamblog component in the OpenSEF settings, by checking the "Exclude" checkbox next to Mamblog on the Components tab in the OpenSEF settings.

Question

If, when you edit an item, the editor field is extremely tiny, about 1 pixel by 1 pixel wide, the width and height for the editor isn't set in the configuration.

Answer

To fix this, go to to the Mamblog configuration in the Joomla administrator backend and set the values of Editor Width and Editor Height to something like 400 and 200.

Question

When listing entries on the frontend, no blog entries show up, only the following error:

No blog section found

Answer

If you get this error the problem is probably that Mamblog can't find the content section that blog entries will be saved in. Read on for further information on how to fix this problem.

 

Mamblog Full Formatting Support Hack

Question

How do I let users use a wysiwyg editor and keep the full formatting?

Answer

These are instructions on how to allow your users to use a wysiwyg editor for full formatting and to upload and enter images into their entries.

The instructions were written by Brat from the forum.

The next patch release of Mamblog will add support for this so that the hack won't be necessary.
