Joomla! Like seriously, what's the point!?

 

I have an ecommerce site to look after at work. So I've downloaded the files, set up vhosts etc. I load it up and get an error of:

 

Fatal error: Class 'SConfig' not found in /Users/james/Sites/site.local/includes/framework.php on line 56

 

There is a class named SConfig within the files. Google tells me that it's a permissions issue so I've chmod'd EVERYTHING to 777 and it still does not work.

 

Why do people even use Joomla!? WHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!? Grrrrr.

Good grief it's difficult to not get emotional when terms and pricing is not respected by a potential client. I hate being forced to draw that hard boundary and say "take it or leave it".

 

That is all.

Today's grumble is freelance accounts, currently my floor is covered in 12 piles of paperwork to be 'sorted'. Sure I brought this on myself, I should keep up-to-date but if it's a choice between earning money and working out where it went I'll always take making money :D

I feel your pain - it's tax return time!

I hate it when I click on a link on this forum and I get the "red screen of death". I have to stop what I am doing, scan my computer, and get rid of the bug. #Annoying.

Now we are nearly at the completion of a design that took months.

Client sends over PSD design and separate assets.  

 

In the PSD design there is an image of some potted flowers in pink pots.  The assets they sent over to use, the flowers are in blue pots, I implement the assets they provided.  Now they're complaining about the pots being the wrong colour!

 

Grumble finished.

Today my grumble is clients who think the 'website ideas' from their uneducated 'tech' friend who once opened the remote control to change the batteries trumps someone who has worked in this industry for a fair old stretch.

Today it's freaking Google, they have removed quick access to WMT, Analytics etc from their main dashboard! Just a bunch of links to privacy settings, not ideal.

Todays grumble is LCN! Got a new project and the client hosts there. Set up the DB etc and turns out they run strict by default, which means text fields can't have a default as empty or set to empty on insert or update! And their support answer? "if you wanted more fine control over your databases a Cloud server may give you what you're looking for", so a cloud server to be allowed to 'fine control' empty text fields, WTF, sledgehammer as a bottle opener, I've never encountered a host who sets to strict by default, has anyone else?

I have never even heard of strict, but yeah, sounds unusual.

Do you know of any expl. articles on that?

http://dev.mysql.com...n/sql-mode.html

 

 

The Most Important SQL Modes

 
The most important sql_mode values are probably these:
 
 ANSI
 
This mode changes syntax and behavior to conform more closely to standard SQL. It is one of the special combination modes listed at the end of this section.
 
 STRICT_TRANS_TABLES
 
If a value could not be inserted as given into a transactional table, abort the statement. For a nontransactional table, abort the statement if the value occurs in a single-row statement or the first row of a multiple-row statement. More details are given later in this section.
 
As of MySQL 5.7.5, the default SQL mode includes STRICT_TRANS_TABLES.
 
 TRADITIONAL
 
Make MySQL behave like a “traditional” SQL database system. A simple description of this mode is “give an error instead of a warning” when inserting an incorrect value into a column. It is one of the special combination modes listed at the end of this section.

 

The problem I was facing was that sometimes on insert you might want to leave fields off, or blank / empty. With their lockdown I could set varchar to default '' but it wouldn't allow text to have a default set this way, no idea why the hell you'd let a varchar default to '' but not a text field ... very strange plus to default all databases to strict? Like I say never encountered it as 'standard'.
