    Right here goes

    I have Joomla 1.5.10 (I think, latest one anyway) NOT running on legacy mode.

    I use the following extentions (all free)

    COMPONENTS
    Comment System - Chronocomment
    Calender System - JEvents MVC
    Forms System - JForms
    Sitemap (with google linked) - Joomap
    Download handling/listing - Remository
    Slideshows - RSGallery2

    PLUGINS
    Rating System - VOTITALY
    Map System - Google Maps
    Analytics - Google BIGshot
    SEO - SEOgenerator

    MODULES
    Analytics - JX Woopra
    Directions (too school) - Google Simple Route
    Additional Slideshow - Rokslideshow
    Menu - EXmenu

    All are hacked to remove any unwanted links or hidden and nofollow. Go to http://www.ashlawn.org.uk if you want to see the extentions in action.

    It's odd...

    So far..
    Checked the DB Access which is - fine
    Checked the DB - fine
    Checked subdomains on same host - fine
    Checked support sites of the extentions - fine
    Checked support sites of the host - fine
    Looking into the permissions - fine

    Looking into uploading to subdomain, so i can start uninstalling extentions
    Looking at installing another template to check that....


    other than that I'm at a loss and may have to use a backup...

    So, apart from that, you're stopping your users from using the right click menu completely. So, using a souped up Firefox, in my case, you're stopping me from going back, forward, refreshing, bookmaking the page on Delicious, highlighting a postcode and locating your school on Google Maps, choosing where I want to save a download... Do you really want to stop your users from doing any of those things?

    Might be worth reconsidering.

    Hope you get your site back and running soon mossj - I've not had a chance to look at it yet, and it'll be interesting to see how you've implemented some of your ideas.

    Just got this from the helpfull support

    There are lot of these entries in your error_log:

    [Thu Apr 23 11:05:50 2009] [error] [client 195.225.189.10] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /var/www/vhosts/ashlawn.org.uk/httpdocs/index.php on line 89
    It looks like this is what is causing the site to go down. Any idea how to fix?

    I could be (very) wrong, but that sounds to me like there's a rogue '<' character in your index.php which the error log is picking up every time the page is accessed - I very much doubt that'll be a reason for your site to go down, but it'd be worth removing it.

    Try running it through a validator or maybe just searching the text for '<<' in case the character's been doubled up somewhere by mistake.

    It's back, I LOVE CSNEWMEDIA support! For whatever reason teh index.php on the root had broken, so i just uploaded a copy from the back up. I doubt it was a rouge '<' as I have never touched index.php and noone else gets that error...

    will have to turn on all the seo friendly urls again though

    I think I tried chronoforms but to tell the truth i can't remember why I uninstalled it...

    I can tell you Jforms does the following (maybe I'll list a feature chronoforms doesn't have...)
    - email & database support
    - Drag and drop creation interface
    - Captcha
    - NO advertising or Hidden links

    As al All Girls School we take whatever precautions are available to protect our students, if we could stop the taking of screenshots - we would

    We have a Google map available on the site and any internal downloads open as pdfs.

    Do you really want to stop your users from doing any of those things?
    In an ideal world of course not - but it isn't is it?
