Any help is appreciated!

If you are asking for help with using the Joomla! Framework then you need to ask on the forum at If you are familiar with the subject but need help with writing this page then you need to be more specific about what kind of help you need. Chris Davenport 03:52, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

The material added by Mitomedia should, I think, be moved to a separate page as it has nothing to do with using the Joomla Framework. Can you take care of it Mitomedia? Thanks. Chris Davenport 18:05, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Fatal error: fatal opening required 'libraries/import.legacy.php'[edit]

found this error in: require_once JPATH_LIBRARIES . '/import.legacy.php'

and checking obviusly that file doesn't exist. i've tested with jp11.1 and that file is included in 12.1

i think is better to include the jp version for avoid misunderstandings --NestorAcevedo 13:11, 23 August 2012 (CDT)

about controllers & mvc patron[edit]

reading mvc usage[1] in joomla developer about controllers, i lost my perspective about mvc patron.

if the controller now only "prints" as the view, what's the meaning to have the JView and derived?
