vel list

I have reverted your changes. With all due respect enzsure that before you alter anything protected you should read and observe the comments on the talk pages namely

Talk:Vulnerable Extensions List

Jump to: navigation, search

All questions should be addressed to the vel @ joomla.org email address (without the spaces)

Only known users to edit anything previously agreed items on this page.

In response to youre previous message - not sure why you added on my talk page but still Beyond the cut and paste of previous editors comments. Please ask Chris Davenport for the history on this document, and if you have any concerns or questions contact the vel team as detailed to do on the vel talk page.

I posted on your talk page, because I have no way of knowing if you are watching my talk page for replies without certain installed Mediawiki extensions. Will PM you and Phil on the forum. Tom Hutchison (talk) 16:04, 22 October 2012 (CDT)

Received no PM or email to the vel list from you. Your rechanges reversed. --Mandville (talk) 12:50, 27 October 2012 (CDT)

Phil already reverted the mis-spelling, the categorisation of the page stands as is and will. Since it was for enhancement suggestions, I didn't realise the clock was ticking. I have been trying to research everything, because I wanted to address all concerns with solutions. At this point, I am probably just wasting my time and effort.

Security checklist 7

in reference to history entry for the checklist 7, 16:44, 13 October 2012‎ - (Removed protection from "Security Checklist/You have been hacked or defaced": hmm, don't know why this was protected, error - reset to all edit)

http://docs.joomla.org/Security_Checklist/You_have_been_hacked_or_defaced and history http://docs.joomla.org/index.php?title=Security_Checklist/You_have_been_hacked_or_defaced&action=history

The checklist was protected as incorrect and sometimes potentially damaging edits were being made mainly to the Chmod and Cron section shell scripts of the page.

This goes back to a few pages are protected for a reason. The reason in this case for the safety of the end users site. While I would suggest this page remain protected from regular editing for reasons outlined above, Though I would feel better if the page was again protected, I will let it stay as unprotected for now unless another incident of changing or modifying the shell scripts occurs which would potentially damage or delete someones site if the modified script(s) are used before the changes can be rolled back.

Protected again to keep the content of the page from being changed. I also added the Permissions page into the series. Tom Hutchison (talk) 07:11, 29 October 2012 (CDT)



Please revert the title of the page as was. It is universally known as checklist 7.

It was and is part of the security checklists 1-6 Please also reneable full protection of the document to those previously listed - namely PhilD, myself and Lafrance. This is another previously agreed protected, nominated document.

--Mandville (talk) 17:13, 3 November 2012 (CDT)

Protection was enabled days ago, Security Checklist 7 can still be referenced, it now redirects to the page. You need to understand, documentation is changing, improving, becoming more organized for Joomla! users. Nothing is ever set in stone. Even Joomla! improves and new releases are now being done at a set pace. Tom Hutchison (talk) 17:24, 3 November 2012 (CDT)

Tom the page looks good Thanks

Barnstar and a few bits and bobs

Thankyou very much for the barnstar!! One thing I've noticed whilst doing the help screens is that when you press the help buttons in Joomla 2.5 is that there are [edit] links next to each section. But these links take you to a blank page - so is there any way we can drop the edit buttons?

Also I noticed one of the help buttons earlier today took you to the Joomla 1.6 help page instead of the 2.5 (when pressed in Joomla 2.5). It was one of the menu items - but typically as I'm writing this I've completely forgotten which - not sure how easy it will be to check up on this!

Thanks again, George

No problem! You deserved one, you've done a lot of work on the 2.5 Help Screens and other articles over the past week!
The link itself is nulled out by the proxy. The [edit] link used to be regex'd out but since the MW 1.16 to 1.19 update, something must have changed in 1.19. We are looking at that. Another thought was to use __NOSECTIONEDIT__ to remove the [edit] links from the page. Makes it harder to update them, but once the Help screen is done it should not be necessary to update them. At least not a regular task, just a bug fix or small tweak here and there.
Was the link in the pop-up window's address bar something like ...help.joomla.org/proxy/index.php?option=com_help&keyref=Help16 or just the page contained information of a 1.6 Help Screen? The first would be a bug, second is a possibility. The next version released Help screens are dumped into the new namespace and content of page links are changed to reflect the new namespace for the new release. I know there are a couple of 1.7 Help screens using pure transclusion to show the 1.6, something like:
{{:Help16:The_name_of the_1.6_HelpScreen}} is the only content so it may have just been put into the 2.5 screen.
Let me know if you can remember if it was content or address and I'll see if I can track it down.

Found another link issue whilst trying to find that Joomla 1.6 link:
External URL page - Page takes you to: http://help.joomla.org/proxy/index.php?option=com_help&keyref=Help25:Menus_Menu_Item_Manager_Edit instead of the external URL page http://docs.joomla.org/Help25:Menus_Menu_Item_External_Url
Cheers for the information!
