How to show Joomla Articles on frontpage - new to flexicontent - by: ggppdk
please forget of ACL manager when using FLEXIcontent,
i explained already about it, they do not want to support FLEXIcontent

- you can use it but after doing, relogin to backend, and in FLEXIcontent dashboard click "Set initital permissions"

- about editing items
a user not being able to edit does not mean that there is an ACL error

- you can edit FLEXIContent component by clicking "parameters" then go to permissions TAB and allow usergroups to edit ALL or edit their items that they have created(="owned")

please note
1. if in any category you set this to EDIT or EDIT.OWN to "DENY" it will effect the all items that have this category as their main category
(of course this will effect all sub-categories)

2. if a user belongs to 2 or 3 or more usergroups and you DENY in any of them a category, then setting to allow in any other usergroup will have no effect]]>

To mtgt:
we can upgrade your sections/category tree properly if you want

please see this ... pic#p41370

also note we have already done a lot of effort so that J1.5 version is compatible with J2.5/J3.x version

Joomla itself has not done this, J1.5 is not directly upgradeable to J2.5

to kacraj:

1. You can edit and save ALL your content types once and the error should go away,

2. also you can apply this fix:

hello please edit the file and replace:

[item or maincat or type unp] Content is no longer available - by: ggppdk

orfevre wrote: plus 8 articles dont want to be bind. I try but nothing. It is my firstime with flexicontent and i see many problem


we take time to give you free support in the hopes of giving a powerful and robust component to the community,

please read carefully all of my message

- Before you click "Bind" you need to select a default category in the case that the items do not have a category already (this problem could have been caused when you edited items which having the mootools problem)

-- so i selected the category "Uncategorized" for these 8 items


"see many problem" ?

FLEXIcontent is build for thousands of different sites, if it was built for just 1 website, it would cost how much 150,000 ? similar thing applies for other CCKs in Joomla extension

- please be polite and respect free support that we give, most problems are not FLEXIcontent issues,

these are many times due to configuration, or due to different applications installed on website, or different server setups, or due to responding to user needs and adding a new feature, (and a new feature takes time to mature, thus when you see people reporting an issue here, it is usually for a new feature or due to using newer Joomla version)

e.g. all 3 of the other problems you reported so far were not due to FLEXIcontent

- you had a mootools loading problem specific to yor site which effected all components that used it,
- which also caused an invalid record to be inserted in the DB, which we fixed for free
- and finally about "Bind" you did not select a default category before clicking bind

about items not being published, please give me a specific item ID
(send a PM)

ALSO: your ARTIO SEF will not work properly with Joomla's language filter: (you will get an endless redirection loop:) (either uninstall ARTIO SEF or configure it properly)

The System - Language Filter plugin is enabled, which prevents JoomSEF from working correctly. Please use Plug-in Manager to disable the Language Filter plugin. Then you can use JoomSEF's own language management (JoomSEF's Configuration - Language tab)

best regards]]>

[SOLVED] Post installation tasks - by: ggppdk
it is ok now
the was a single empty FLEXIcontent item with ID zero, that was caused the problem,

we have tightened these post-installation checks
but this was a rare not anticipated case

will put extra check for this in future version

[non-FC issue: mootools broken] Update button does not work - by: ggppdk
1. mootools-more.js
is core file loaded by joomla
FLEXIcontent (and various other component that need JS) will not work properly if this broken

2. Currently we don't have sell support plans (yet), so we are interested only in FLEXIcontent bugs, in fact we give away more free support than most other components, imagine doing this for free for non-FC issues, we not have time to do anything else

-- about replacing .htaccess, please note that
ALL parent folder
.htaccess files are also applied, so you may be effected by the .htaccess of a parent folder,
or it may not be .htaccess issue, i cannot say without spending time in it

Try posting in Joomla forums about this , mentioning that
does not get loaded

Installation stops at -configutaions& refresh; unable to fix - by: ggppdk
you upgraded FLEXIcontent to a newer version ?

or you installed FLEXIcontent for 1st time ?
-- if you installed for 1st time, then simply uninstalling it, will give you you default Joomla article interface !

-- also you do not mention,
so i have to ask, did you tried to save the configuration ?
if you tried, then does it give you an error when trying to save the configuration ?]]>

Upgrade from 1.5.4 to 2.0.2 - by: Gleedaniel13

you will have to
1. update any custom templates that you have (if you want to use some of the new parameters available)
2. if you have doubts about customizations that you have made (or were done for you), it is better to create a copy site to test and or backup site

Also read the FAQ article about upgrading custom templates: ... -v156.html

Thank you for emphasizing here the steps we should do first before we go directly on the site.]]>

Problem with installation of FLEXIcontent v2.0.2 r1679 r1680 - by: ggppdk this is a joomla error ,
FLEXIcontent is larger than most extensions

Could be installed. It was found that the previously modified files downloaded from another user

i am not sure that i understand you ... what files were modified and in what way?

did you read our FAQ article : ... tions.html

The following applies to installing FLEXIcontent and other relative large Joomla components

(a). PHP (web server) limitations
-- regarding upload FLEXIcontent installation file 2-4 MBs
-- executing times of the installation script

Please go to Joomla's System Information, and then inside TAB PHP information,
and make sure that you have at least the following in your .htaccess (may require restart web server),
or ask your WebHost Provider to do it:

php_value upload_max_filesize 15M
php_value post_max_size 15M
php_value max_input_time 300
php_value max_execution_time 300
php_value default_socket_timeout 300
php_value max_input_vars value 5000

* number 5, may help with "mysql server has gone aways"
* number 6, may help when being unable to save FLEXIcontent component configuration
ALSO consider disabling FTP layer in Joomla configuration if you have it enabled

(b) MySQL server Limitations

Please check that you have at least the following in the mysql.ini of your MySQL Server
or ask your WebHost Provider to do it:

if you search forum you will find that this problem may be fixed by truncating 2 tables.
truncate jjj_flexicontent_versions
