Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Joomla

profile for w3d on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites


For some reason this question (from Oct 2010) has more recently been deleted but was still available on stackprinter.com. I had the accepted answer and was looking high and low for it to use as reference on another question.

comment Unable to resolve localhost, 127.0.0.1 or local IP address?
@Darius: In fact I quickly setup a mylocalhost pointing to the same site (see question update) and this works OK. DirectoryIndex is setup to serve default files. (But localhost actually results in the browser trying to resolve it!?)

comment Unable to resolve localhost, 127.0.0.1 or local IP address?
@Darius: Nothing meaningful is reported by the browser, simply "This webpage is not available" (in Opera, and similar messages in other browsers). Yes, localhost should be serving files (the default XAMPP welcome message - which I did see from localhost when it was first installed). Bizarrely localhost/index.html does work (this is just an "It Works" message) and now localhost/xampp has started working again, as well as any localhost/XXX URL. But the bare localhost (or 127.0.0.1) does not.

comment Delete cookies in IE11 F12 Developer Tools and Document Mode not Edge
Have you tried CCleaner?! What if you switch back to IE11 mode? If you monitor the HTTP requests do you see the Cookie header being sent?

Your onboard (motherboard) graphics adapter is probably disabled. Do you not have more than one port on the graphics card?

comment Opera Next issue
FWIW it works OK for me in Opera 12.16 (it was all downhill from there).

comment Opera Next issue
AFAIK the "listen" function / sound is provided by Flash (add-on), so disabling the add-ons is probably not going to help.

comment Can someone explain to me the correlation between bit rate and frame rate?
+1 nice answer. Minor point, when you refer to "kilobytes per second", shouldn't this be KBps, rather than kbps?

comment Chrome. Problems with encoding
Have you managed to resolve this?

comment Chrome. Problems with encoding
As it happens I have just updated to 31.0.1650.63 m and the page views OK for me. (It viewed OK before the update as well.) The page is encoded as UTF-8 (stated in the Content-Type header) so it's unusual for the browser to get this wrong, or not be capable of displaying this. What encoding is reported if you select Menu > Tools > Encoding. Is it set to "Auto Detect"?
