Wrestling With Mambo

Written by Kodi Wolf at 12:18 PM

So, I've spent another two days wrestling with Mambo. The trouble is that it's so non-intuitive as to be practically anti-intuitive. The only reason I haven't given up on it by now is that when it does work, it's incredible.

On the upside, I am learning a lot about CSS, since it's basically how you control stuff in Mambo... Well, the look of stuff, anyway. Actually controlling stuff is what involves the wrestling.

Just for my own future reference, I'm going to note a few tidbits I've learned, forgotten, and recently struggled to figure out again.

  • The copyright text is in the version.php file in includes, but the setup of how the copyright and Powered By lines display is in the footer.php file in includes.

  • The short date used for the chapter listing table is in the content.php file in components/com_content, but is defined in english.php.

  • The blog date is in the mambo.php file in includes, but is defined in english.php.

  • I can't remember what file the main page current date is in, but it's defined in english.php.

At least I got the Terms of Service page done.
