To celebrate the 100th episode of Maintenance Monday we're giving away a $100 (Canadian eh!) Amazon Gift Card. Details on how to enter are in the video. I used to think that the " " code that seemed to randomly appear in Joomla articles and content was just a pain in the butt that had to be manually removed (OK, now I hear it!) in code view.

However, thanks to Gary Barclay leaving a comment on MM #099, I now understand its purpose. " " is a code used for making a Non Breaking Space. So if you ever want to force two words to stay together instead of being broken apart at the end of a line of text, " " is your friend!

Showing examples of how and when to insert " " in your Joomla pages and articles is what today's Maintenance Monday live stream is all about. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ►



- Tim Davis presents a YouTube live stream titled "Can Be Your Friend in Joomla! 🛠 Maintenance Monday Live Stream #100."
- Tim Davis introduces himself as a Joomla fan and announces the 100th episode of Maintenance Monday.
- To celebrate the milestone, a $100 Amazon gift card giveaway is mentioned for viewers who enter a random draw.
- The video discusses the use of the HTML code " " (ampersand, non-breaking space, semicolon) in Joomla articles.
- Tim explains that " " prevents words from breaking over lines when wrapped, useful for maintaining formatting.
- The concept of non-breaking space ("nbsp") is elaborated on, and its purpose in maintaining word cohesion is discussed.
- An example with the text "basic Joomla site" demonstrates how using " " instead of a regular space keeps the words together.
- Tim showcases a link shared by a viewer that provides a table of HTML character codes for reference.
- The video concludes with Tim expressing gratitude to the viewers, announcing the giveaway rules, and engaging with comments.
- Tim also reflects on the journey of creating content and fostering a community through Maintenance Monday episodes.
