I created some custom forms recently, using DirectPHP within Joomla! 3.0. At first I used standard text fields for the date, month, and year fields, then I had to lump up the user's input into one variable, before sending it into the database. Clumsy.
So I decided to google "PHP Datepicker" and the results brought up this article on www.lovewithbug.com which indicated that I could use Joomla! Framework's own built-in calendar date picker. Fantastic! Add a comment

Ever seen the following error on one of your developed websites?

 

Warning: strtotime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/folder/public_html/libraries/joomla/utilities/date.php on line 56

Since Joomla 1.5 has been closed up, we have been having more and more issues with the sites on our servers that were developed with it. While some clients have agreed to redesign their sites [optionally by us, at an additional fee of course], some are still trying to hold on to their obsolete site. Those that have refused to upgrade, are giving us more problems, especially when the sites develop issues and we have to sort them out 'quickly'.

The latest issue was the '403 Forbidden' one below. A Joomla 1.5 site suddenly started showing the '403 Forbidden Error'. After almost two hours of searching and digging, the solution was so simple.

Daydah Concepts Ltd has always provided Bulk SMS services for our clients - believing that all clients should have an additional method of reaching their clients. For those who are not sure, Bulk SMS is a service whereby you send Short Messages to a bulk set of numbers through a system built for that purpose. The system uses a pre-configured direct routing to the networks, to send those messages to the numbers.
