When you have new people create a profile on your #Joomla site, it is a security concern for them (plus it may just bug them) if you include their password in clear text in the welcome email you send them. It is better to not send them the password. After all, they've just chosen it anyway. How to turn off sending Joomla passwords in welcome emails is what today's Maintenance Monday is about.
In many of my tutorials I encourage Joomla fans to have a "working backup" before they perform maintenance and other processes on their #joomla site. One viewer has asked what I meant by "working backup." The answer to that question is what today's Maintenance Monday is about.
You can schedule the publish and unpublish dates of modules on your #Joomla site with Advanced Module Manager from Regular Labs. That is what today's Christmas Day #maintenancemonday live stream is all about!
It's important to make regular backups of your #joomla site and the best way to do that consistently is to schedule Akeeba Backup to do those backups. This #maintenancemonday looks at 2 ways to do that: one by activating Akeeba Backup through a cron job and the other by activating it to do regular backups through Myjoomla.com.
After our look at this last topic week, there was some confusion about why the control panel page for Joomla prevents some #joomla admins from proceeding to other areas of the backend of their sites immediately after logging in. But we've figured out what the cause is and why last week's solution works and in the process found another solution to add to your Joomla toolkit as well! That's what this Maintenance Monday takes a look at.
