Tim Davis is a pastor at Westside Bible Church in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. His internet past-time is the backbone of the Cybersalt sites.
Joomla 1.6 is out today - hurray! Now for the task of migrating version 1.5 sites (like the Cybersalt Site) to 1.6.
Here is a fix for the first snag I ran into.
In order to begin to try to upgrade a site form 1.5 to 1.6, I installed Jupgrade 0.5.1
After a successful install I proceeded to try the component but got this error message:
On behalf of Susan (Mrs. Cybersalt) and myself, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a merry and blessed Christmas. May this Christmas be one that fills your heart and soul with the fullness God desires each of us to be experiencing in relationship with Him.
A few days ago I learned of the suicide attempt of a fellow my age who this past year has been struggling within a perfect storm of loss, grief, and addiction. Poor choices made along the way have only weighed him down further as consequences have come home to roost. I know his story well because for ten of those months I have been his pastor and tried to help in so many ways. Without a doubt, the holiday season multiplied his sense of suffering and tunneled his vision so that ending it all seemed the only solution. Please note, though, that I said the “holiday season” and not Christmas, for Christmas could never do such things – Christmas in its real meaning that is.
I have the power of attorney for an 88-year-old, never married woman who is confined to bed in a local nursing home. She has been a part of our church family for all of the 13.5 years that I have pastored at Westside Bible Church. Amongst my duties as POA (an acronym not far from POW for a reason) is shopping for personal items that she needs brought to the home.
That is how I came to be in the Shoppers Drug Mart this afternoon on a quest of senior proportions. It was my job to hunt down a bottle of Estee Lauder “Youth Dew” perfume, a mirror small enough to see one’s chin but not large enough to see one’s face, and some large nail clippers.
I was not feeling particularly enthusiastic about doing this shopping because I knew it was going to take me into parts of the store where I was going to have to ask for help. I have never been good at finding specific things in stores and as I get older (I am 44) I can see I’m getting even worse at item specific browsing.
Facebook has rejigged itself again and is offering a whole bunch of new social media tools for webmasters to put on their sites. One of these tools is the "like" button. Think of it as a way for people to join your group (the old terminology was "fan page") more easily.
However, when I tried to use Facebooks' system to create the code for a like button to put on the Cybersalt site, it kept generating a "page not found" error where the button should be. I did some searching around and found what the problem was. Here's the fix that worked for me.
