HotThemes Blog

All Joomla templates developed by HotThemes are integrated with Lightbox script. Lightbox allows you to include simple galleries in your content pages. We will explain here how to use this feature on your site. You can use Lightbox for single images (click on small image opens larger image) or for series of images (slide show).

Page title tag <title> is important for search engine optimization of your website. Search engine crawlers will rank your website higher if your target keywords are in the <title> tag.

How to change <title> tag for a page of your Joomla site? When you edit a menu item, under System tab, you'll find Page Title. This will be <title> of the page, no matter if "Show Page Title" option is enabled or disabled.

GoDaddy

GoDaddy.com is #1 domain registrar and one of the most popular web hosting providers worldwide. Their prices are very competitive and you don't have to sign up long-term contracts. We experimented with this hosting provider for some time. Based on our experiences, we can say that GoDaddy Linux hosting packages are 100% compatible with Joomla. GoDaddy also have a way to install Joomla quickly for your hosting account. We will explain the procedure here in all possible details.

Default Joomla 404 page

Joomla installed on your server will change default browser's 404 page to something what you can see on this picture. It's not perfect, but still better than default browser error page. At least, there's a link that leads to the home page of your web site. Not bad, but could be much better.

Is your Joomla website hacked recently? Is this repeating from time to time? Did your web hosting provider warn you that your account may be suspended if this repeats again? Even if all your answers are "no", it's still recommended to follow these security steps to make your Joomla website secure.

How To Upgrade Joomla 1.5

Let's imagine this situation. When you installed Joomla for your website, you used the latest stable version of Joomla (in example 1.5.9). You developed your website and you are happy with it. However, in just a few months, several new versions of Joomla are released. The current version is, in example 1.5.14, so your website doesn't have the latest Joomla anymore.

In the first chapter of our series of Joomla tutorials, we will cover the installation of a web server software on your local computer. To run Joomla, we need a web server enabled with php and mysql database. Most of you have the PC computers with Windows XP or Vista. Therefore, with your operating system alone, you don't have what's necessary to run Joomla locally.
