Trombinoscope Contacts Pro v3.0 introduced a major feature that is missing in Joomla core: the edition of contacts outside the administration console. The extension proposes a solution and to ensure the data is properly secure, there are a few steps to follow.
There is no contact menu item (or contact view) in Joomla! out-of-the-box allowing the creation and edition of contacts in the front end of a site. But there is a way for registered users to create their own contact entry and edit it when you have Trombinoscope Contacts Pro.
If you are missing parameters in any of the modules created by Simplify Your Web (in the Joomla administrator console), you may be a victim of conflicts caused by colliding extensions.
Search queries return data that has no specific formatting, no matter the kind of data that is returned. Thankfully, the smart search component allows template overrides when it comes to the results' output. Coupled with Trombinoscope Extended, it is possible to show specific contact data in the smart search results... picture included.
It's been reported a few times that suddenly, after an update, fatal errors or Class not found errors can occur when accessing an extension or a page hosting a Simplify Your Web extension.
Although a major issue (since it may crash the site on some pages), it is easily fixable.
With Trombinoscope Contacts Pro v2.11, it is now possible to show a different picture than the standard contact picture in the contact views created by the extension (for users of Joomla 3.7 and over). Not only that, it is also possible to show several pictures that will automatically display as a slideshow. This tutorial will teach you on how you can easily do just that.
Depending on your Joomla configuration, when linking contacts in Trombinoscope Contacts free or pro to a contact view, those links may result in a 404 error or even open an un-rendered page. Usually, this happens when the contacts have no menu item to 'fall' into.
This set of articles have been created in order to increase people's awareness about the Simplify Your Web products.
It is aiming to show how those products can be used and point out not-so-well-known functionality.
