Joomla Compression

This is also an effective feature to optimize your website performance. When you enable this feature, the web page will be compressed and of course, the compressed page will take less time to load. Here is the way to enable Joomla Compression:

If you want to check the speed of your Joomla website, let’s start with speed test first. It can be said that site speed is one of the most important factors that affect directly a site performance. All your effort put into user-friendly interface, conversion rate optimization, high-quality content, and other things will not make sense if your page takes visitors too much time for loading.

Joomla! 4 – The hope of promising year 2018

During 2017, we have heard a lot of opinions that this year has been too gloomy for Joomla. However, we think that this year is so important because it is the stepping stone for the explosion in 2018 when we prepare to welcome Joomla! 4.0 and Joomla! Framework 2.0. In addition to introducing several new features, including a fully rebuilt Media Manager, an enhanced event dispatching system, and new security features such as support for prepared SQL statements, we have also been doing some routine maintenance and paying off some of our project’s technical debt by retiring deprecated code and raising the minimum supported software stack. And, with this released version, we also require PHP 7.

// Unset unwanted Scripts - by name
$unset_scripts = array(

foreach($this->_scripts as $name=>$script)
	if (!preg_match('#(' . implode('|', $unset_scripts) . '#i', $name))


or if you use joomla v3.8.1 you can try this php code:

	$doc = JFactory::getDocument();
	unset($doc->_scripts[JURI::root(true) . '/media/system/js/mootools-more.js']);
	unset($doc->_scripts[JURI::root(true) . '/media/system/js/mootools-core.js']);
	unset($doc->_scripts[JURI::root(true) . '/media/system/js/core.js']);
	unset($doc->_scripts[JURI::root(true) . '/media/system/js/modal.js']);
	unset($doc->_scripts[JURI::root(true) . '/media/system/js/caption.js']);
	unset($doc->_scripts[JURI::root(true) . '/media/jui/js/jquery.min.js']);
	unset($doc->_scripts[JURI::root(true) . '/media/jui/js/jquery-noconflict.js']);
	unset($doc->_scripts[JURI::root(true) . '/media/jui/js/bootstrap.min.js']);

if you wand disable all js & css scripts - use code:

$doc->_scripts     = null;
$doc->_script      = null;
$doc->_styleSheets = null;

joomla 3.6.4 default template c215a

To disable scripts you can insert here the php code in the head pattern


if( isset($this->_script['text/javascript']) ) {
        $this->_script['text/javascript'] = preg_replace('\.addEvent\(\'load\',\s*(\'img.caption\'\);\s*}\);\s*%', '', $this->_script['text/javascript']);
        if( empty($this->_script['text/javascript']) )
        unset( $this->_script['text/javascript'] );

Krikor say "This is unrelated of the recent updates. This is to either a template issue (unclosed HTML tags) or if it happens only in particular items, it means that there are unclosed HTML tags in these items."

Try go to administrator, System -> Global Configuration -> Server -> Error Reporting: select "None"

// получаем параметры компонента com_users
$params = JComponentHelper::getParams('com_users');
// устанавливаем требуемое значение
$params->set('guest_usergroup', '1');
// записываем измененные параметры в БД
$db = JFactory::getDbo();
$query = $db->getQuery(true);
$query->set($db->quoteName('params') . '= ' . $db->quote((string)$params));
$query->where($db->quoteName('element') . ' = ' . $db->quote('com_users'));
$query->where($db->quoteName('type') . ' = ' . $db->quote('component'));

In this example, it is important to pay attention to the reduction of the variable $params to string. As a result of this reduction JRegistry object it will be converted into JSON format and you want to record in the field params #__extensions table.

	* Function 
function getAccess($groups=array(), $user_id=0)
		if ($user_id == 0) $user_id = JFactory::getUser()->id;
		echo $user_id;
		if (count($groups) == 0 || $user_id == 0) return false;

// Print groups user id 
	print_r($user_id = $user->getAuthorisedGroups());

// Output Group Access Permissions
    $groups = array(18, 8);// an array of groups separated by commas
    if(getAccess( $groups)) echo 'Access granted to groups 18 and 8';

$document = &JFactory::getDocument();

 Or, as I did - after calling jdoc head prescribe its own installation of the generator:

<jdoc:include type="head" />
<?php $this->setGenerator('Hooray Orthodox dunce!'); ?>
