Simplify Your Web extensions have a very extensive array of options when it comes to selecting articles, contacts or weblinks, so you can really target a specific set of items to present to the visitors of your sites. I have just added to the list of filters the possibility to use custom fields as selectors.
After installing an extension, no matter what parameters you have set, the output does not come out right on the public site. Elements don't change appearance or may not be stylized at all.
What is happening?
The migration from Joomla 3.10 to Joomla 4 for Simplify Your Web extensions is fairly simple, but there are still a few rules to follow for a smooth transition.
After installing any of the Simplify Your Web extensions (or after moving the site to a different server with different settings), some users may experience issues with the extension's HTML output. No matter the setup, the output does not look anything like any of the demos or screenshots that the user has seen...
Feelings of disappointment occur (it should work from the start, right?). What is really happening?
This tutorial will help you diagnose the issue (or confirm it) and guide you to help you fix it.
You have just created a few custom fields for your articles, contacts or users in the Joomla console to realize that they are grayed out when you try editing them on the public side of your website. You are able to add data just fine in the console, so why not on the public side?
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.
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.
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.
