    Joomla Question again

    My own website is working fine again (but not on Joomla anymore), but the other one I am sort of looking after and do the admin work on is giving me headaches.

    The site belongs to the indigenous bulb society and therefore quite a number of pictures are put onto the site. (safricanbulbs.org.za) The committee decided that certain material has to be behind "bars" and therefore only for the eyes of registered members. Up to now everything was published as a pdf which could be downloaded.

    Now a new article has to be done on Joomla as a new article on the article manager so that it can be read only by the registered members. An article without any pictures goes through smoothly, but as soon as I add a picture to the article it does not get accepted or saved and ends in an error message. An article together with the pictures is only around 150kb which is still fairly small.

    The only thing I have not tried is to insert the picture as a link in the particular article and I am not sure whether it will work that way.

    Anybody with any ideas?

    Thanks

    Maybe ask on the Joomla forum.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Faan, leave joomla and go with Wordpress. I did web design years ago in joomla and later switched over to wordpress that is a lot more supported, easier to work with, more seo friendly and simply looks much better on the front end.

    I asked the question on the Joomla Forum and together with some tenacity from my side I solved my problem. It is fairly easy if you know what to do, just a little time consuming.
    I have done some work on wordpress, but could not find a template for my need and then went back to Joomla. I have also used Web Page Maker and found it fairly easy to use.

    Okay I haven't tried Web Page Maker, I'm guessing it's mostly html? It can be somewhat time consuming to find a wordpress theme that meets your needs. I usually get a theme (paid or free) that's the closest to what I'm looking for and then do some edits + ad some plugins. But I'm glad to here you figured out the problem.
