The most popular support question is: "Which line of CSS I have to edit to change the appearance of (...)". Several years ago, CSS/HTML editors were the most useful web developer tools. Now, I think much more useful is the web code debugger built in every modern browser, such as, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Brave and even MS Edge. The code inspector allows you to examine, modify (simulate changes), and debug HTML, CSS, and JavaScript of a webpage. If you are looking for information on using the web developer tools available in your browser, you've come to the right place.

If you see a padlock next to content items - for example, article title, menu items or any modules at Joomla! administrative backend, it means that other user is currently editing the item. There are few ways to get rid of locks.

After clicking for example on the locked article item, you will see the following error message:

Check-out failed with the following error: The user checking out does not match the user who checked out the item.
You are not permitted to use that link to directly access that page.

For Joomla 3.x

Check-out failed with the following error: The user checking out does not match the user who checked out the item. You are not permitted to use that link to directly access that page.

For Joomla 2.5

There is a simple but very effective way to create an article in a non-standard way, especially if you need to introduce very long article or display many threads on the one page. Joomla brings you a possibility to divide the article, segregating it with tabs or sliders or display index of thematic pages. Just have to get learn Content - Pagebreak plugin to put it into practice.

Let's start, in your Joomla back-end navigate to Extensions -> Plugins -> Content - Pagebreak to see all parameters.
Take a look at basic options of the plugin:

It's very common problem, so I believe, that you will find that piece of info very useful. After installing the fresh Joomla, the standard Joomla editor view looks like on the screenshot below:

The functionality of the editor is quite poor, there is no simple way to change font colour, size, insert video file or add custom character. You would need to have, at least, the basic knowledge of html or css code to add few styles to the content you want to introduce. But, there is much easier way to modify your content, just have to use advanced preset for the Editor - TinyMCE plugin.

Navigate to (in the Joomla administrator back-end) Extensions -> Plugins -> Editor - TinyMCE

Then select the set for which you want to change settings and choose Use advanced preset. Each set can be assigned to different user groups. By default the Set 2 is assigned to Public, Set 1 to Manager and Registered, Set 0 to Administrator, Editor and Super Users.
