Often you find yourselves in a situation where you want an HTML file to load prior to a PHP file in the root of your website, and by default if two files have similar names, the one with .html should load automatically. However, some servers force the loading of .php file before .html. 

If you care caught up in such a situation and are looking to load your .html file ( for any splash page or flash page etc ), add the following ONE line in your .htaccess file and thats it. 

DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php

I hope this helps someone.

If you have tumbled across a problem where your drop down menus are going behind your text, images or flash etc then the following information would help you sort that out. The menus going behind text and images is usually an Internet Explorer problem but the menus going behind flash files chode be Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox. 

1- If menu is going behind images and text. 

All you need to do is to give a higher z-index to the menu div and that should put it on top of the stack and hence will not hide under any text or images. 

i.e. z-index: 9999;

2- If menu is going behind flash objects

For this you will have to do some extra work; 

  • Inside the <object> tag, add the line <param name="wmode" value="opaque">
  • In the <embed> tag, add this attribute wmode="opaque"
  • For dreamweaver 8, CS3. CS4 generated code add wmode before the width attribute just like this 'wmode','opaque', 

If the problem still persists, please feel free to leave your comments below and i will try to provide any possible assistance.

Joomla Migration Expert

Joomla! 1.5 is now end-of-life and if your site is still running on Joomla 1.5.x or Joomla 1.x, unfortunately, there is a high chance that it can get compromised at any time. Securing your site before its too late is always a smart move. The security has always been an important issue for Joomla! developers and they continuously work to improve both the features and the security of Joomla CMS ( Content Management System )

Those sites which are found to be still running on outdated CMS often becomes target of hackers and malware; hence, CMS migration to latest version and fixing security loopholes is necessary.

Joomla! Upgrade or Joomla! Migration from Joomla! 1.5 to Joomla! 2.5/3.x is not always straightforward and requires attention to detail since the platform and underlying architecture has changed quite a bit.

I am Expert in Migrating Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5/3.x alongwith all its major extensions such as

  • JomSocial
  • VirtueMart
  • Kunena
  • K2
  • Community Builder
  • Moset Tree
  • HWDVideoShare, HWDPhotoShare to HWDMediaShare
  • Community Builder
  • Front Page Slide Show
  • JomComments to JComments or K2
  • JEvents
  • Joomla 1.5 Template to Joomla 2.5/3.x Template
  • Upgrading Joomla 1.5 compatible plugins, modules and components to Joomla 2.5/3.x
  • Manually moving data from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5/3.x extensions.

      A Joomla 1.5! site with no major third party extensions installed and no customization would cost around $499 to be migrated to Joomla! 2.5/3.x
