Gogodigital Cookie Consent for Joomla! plugin

Gogodigital Cookie Consent plugin for Joomla! doesn’t display custom message [solution]

Using Gogodigital Cookie Consent plugin for Joomla! version 3.0.2. In the plugin configuration a custom message and submit label was entered and saved but on the frontend the popup only displays the built in message and button label.

Solution: It turns out there is a bug when the message entered has a newline (return). If you write the text in one row without any line breaks the problem will not occur.

MySQL not sorting swedish characters ÅÄÖ correct [solved]

Problem: When using ORDER BY or GROUP BY, the swedish characters Å,Ä and Ö is sorted as A and O.

Solution: add COLLATE utf8_swedish_ci to your ORDER BY or GROUP BY, for example:

SELECT field1,field2 FROM table1 ORDER BY field1 ASC

should be changed to:

SELECT field1,field2 FROM table1 ORDER BY field1 COLLATE utf8_swedish_ci ASC

RSForm! Pro and reCaptcha plugin not working [solved]

Using RSForm! Pro together with the RS!Form Pro reCaptcha plugin stopped working, the reCaptcha does not show up in the form anymore.

Inspecting the page shows errors like “Unexpected token <” on line 2 and further down complains that RSFormProReCAPTCHAv2 is not defined.

The Unexpected token error is probably caused by a line in the <head> section calling a non-existing javascript (i.e. just links to the site root), like: <script src=”/?cc86e17febb09de1768c47283dc17a9b” type=”text/javascript”></script>. This line is originating from a plugin.

It turns out this is problem occured after upgrading to RSForm! Pro 2.0.12 and using the reCaptcha plugin.

The simple solution was to download and reinstall the current “Google No Captcha ReCAPTCHA 1.52.1” from the downloads section at RSJoomla (you might need to login to get to your memberships downloads section).

Note! Just using the Joomla Extensions Update to try to update the plugin will solve the problem. You need to download the plugin and install it.


Error 500 after PrestaShop upgrade from 1.5 to 1.6

Upgrading a PrestaShop 1.5 to 1.6 resulted in Error 500 when visiting the shop frontend. During the upgrade I had selected to disable all non native modules, replace theme with default theme and updating all emails.

I tried every trick in  the book, like cleaning the cache, disable all caching and compression, etc but it didn’t help.

The problem was solved like this:

  • Go to Preferences -> Themes
  • Make sure the default-bootstrap theme is selected
  • Click on the Advanced options button for the theme
  • It turned out the setting for Folder was not set to any folder (no radio button selected). Select default-bootstrap folder and Save

This solved the problem for me.

Mac OSX installing software update

When installing a software update for Mac OSX “El Capitan” that required a system reboot to install, it seemed stuck on the white screen displaying a text “Installing software update: About 11 minutes”.

The solution was quite simple – just wait. It seems the time calculation is really off. After about an hour it stepped down to 10 minutes, so it’s not stuck. It just takes a lot longer than the system calculates.
