    Question: Is it possible in the Hydrogen layout manager to position a module to span several rows ?
    Luke Douglas
    @LukeDouglas2
    @mbogart24 [Joomla3][Gantry 5] Nope. It would require a modification to the template but it's pretty easy to do. Look at the Gantry Documentation on creating a sidebar to span multiple sections. http://docs.gantry.org/gantry5/advanced/creating-layout-presets#spanning-a-sidebar-across-multiple-sections

    @OptikWebCreative (never heard of Gitter before today) I have answered your question at JSX, please read and accept my answer. There were a few things to tidy up. https://joomla.stackexchange.com/a/22890/12352

    Hi! It will be possible upgrade to Joomla 4 from Joomla 3?
    Mick Harner
    @mickmackusa
    @eleumas Developers are hammering away at finishing the Joomla 4 build. This is a major build and eagerly anticipated because it will offer prepared statements (which is a missing feature that causes some php developers to cringe), Bootstap4 and Grid CSS. The release was previously estimated for late 2018, but now it is looking more like early 2019.

    I created a module for joomla 3.8.5 in which I added a style sheet. my problem is that i returned content if i access the css is invalid html. If you have an idea about why such an error?
    Mick Harner
    @mickmackusa
    Have you heard of Joomla Stack Exchange? If you access the Administrator/backend and open the Help menu, the second last item reads "Stack Exchange". This is where Team Joomla wants you to ask for support when you are able to post a complete, detailed, reproducible issue. By posting Joomla problems and solutions in this easily searchable community, future researchers will be able efficiently resolve the same problem and get back to enjoying Joomla. Please post there.

    @N8Solutions
    @mickmackusa Are you suggesting that the Joomla forum should no longer be used for posting problems or asking questions and that it is preferable that we should, from now on, use the Joomla Stack Exchange page?
    Mick Harner
    @mickmackusa
    It is my opinion that JoomlaStackExchange (and Stackoverflow, when not seeking Joomla-specific support) is a superior interface for seeking & delivering support, and sharing knowledge in general. To list a few reasons why... Q&A pages are not threads/conversations that read chronologically, the content - by design- is not chatty, navigating to the "best" answer is simplified (when appropriate voting occurs), users that provide "good content" are rewarded according to a merit based system versus the number of posts they've made, searchability is improved based on content and tags, and more.
    That is not to day that the Joomla Forum is useless. JSX has rules/limits where some questions are off-topic, yet reasonable questions. I consider the Joomla Forum to be the best place for these types of questions. They often require some back-and-forth dialogue which JSX doesn't wish to collect.

    I am new to Joomla (had never heard of it before March of 2018) and I think the communication channels are too many. To keep
    a finger on the pulse of all things Joomla, you need to be monitoring more than a dozen different networks. For people who wish to help others, this spreads them too thin. I think a period of consolidation is in order.
    Mick Harner
    @mickmackusa
    I am going to be urging Joomla Australia to merge its JUG Meetups into one entity (save money) and schedule the meeting so that there is never two aussie meetings at the same time and stream the meeting so that other cities can enjoy cross-pollination and fresh perspectives. With this in place Joomla users can actually accomplish more while doing less. Furthermore, JoomlaDay Australia 2019 is expanding its region to include all of Oceania -- many Joomla users in these countries are operating outside of comfort of an actual "group".
    It is not too late to think deeply and clearly about what makes good sense and helps Joomla to prosper.

    Hi. I want to know if it is possible to access the event OnBeforeCompileHead from my file mod_mymodule.php or if the events are only usable in the context of plugin for joomla?
    Luke Douglas
    @LukeDouglas2

    @mickmackusa [Joomla 3][Gantry 5][PHP 7.2] Mick, sounds like a solid plan on the consolidation. In my opinion, the issue with Gitter is the single thread without subject segregation. I have voiced this more than once but, so far, there has not been any change in the overall functionality. Sure, you can create separate conversations which I have used a few times with other users but that 'really' isn't the same thing. With Google Groups we had that capability just like Joomla Stack Exchange.

    Hopefully, the development team at Gitter will re-evaluate this and give an option to add a subject line with a option in the left sidebar under ALL CONVERSATION to have an option for All comments which would give a display like the one it has now and another option for All Subjects which would give a summary of Subject lines. That way, those who like it now can still have that functionality but those of us who would prefer seeing the subject title of each thread would be provided that ability.

    Right now, it is just way too difficult to follow different inputs into the same problem someone is having.

    Mick Harner
    @mickmackusa
    @LukeDouglas2 I don't see a need for gitter to change what they are offering. Even if loads of features/enhancements were implements it would still be an inferior design for solving specific Joomla CMS issues. As I reread this year-long thread yesterday, it is dotted with vague, broad,
    And/
    Or under-researched / unattempted questions. Stack Exchange has rules to duscourage such things because these questions end up being unattractive to answer or perpetuate a cycle of "help vampirism".
    Mick Harner
    @mickmackusa
    Even if a knowledgeable soul was willing and able to help, the effort would do little more than serve as a 1-to-1 interaction -- this is simply ineffective and inefficient consisering the global pool of Joomla users who inevitably need a hand from time to time.
    Forcing Joomla users to fashion considered, complete, researched, attempted questions actually helps them to become better users/developers. Joining the Stack Exchange community was the greatest decision I made in my career. Not only did I quickly learn how to solve different issues, I learned best practice, adopted better coding standards, and learned industry terms which in turn helped me to research better.
    Mick Harner
    @mickmackusa
    Gitter is an appropriate forum for Git related conversations, but all specific Joomla support questions should be diverted to JSX. I believe there should be a place for every thing. The task now is that we focus on putting things where they best fit so that everyone can easily find everything.

    What exactly do you mean by "Joomla for idiots"?
    Michael Koontz
    @N8Solutions

    @mickmackusa he ( @zhurchick_twitter ) is just a spammer. I have reported his comment of

    Joomla is for idiots

    others should do the same.

    @zhurchick_twitter
    you'r a spammer
    I'm not a spammer
    I hate the joomla 'cause it's so stupid CMS. I don't like its architecture and all the rest. I was losing my hair when building sites with the joomla.
    Michael Koontz
    @N8Solutions
    @zhurchick_twitter Again, I've reported your comments as spam as they have no bearing here. Go spew your hatred for Joomla elsewhere.

    Guys, when must be realese of Joomla4 ?
    Mick Harner
    @mickmackusa
    You will notice in the Joomla backend, that there is a Help tab in the navigation menu. That dropmenu contains "Stack Exchange" as an item -- this is where team Joomla wants you to post your support questions BECAUSE it is a superior format to share insights and has battle-tested rules about how to ask a specific/narrow question including a Minimal, Verifiable, Complete example which will ultimately help the asker, future researchers, and awards contributors for there support. Gitter is meant to be a place where people discuss Git-based things. Please post your question on JoomlaStackExchange.

    Thanks I did a few days ago, but as is common the Joomla community is dead and especially the developers who for years broke the feedback of the people.

    @mickmackusa
    @Diegopintos I'm sorry that you have not yet received support from the 100% volunteer audience at JSE. The only thing that you can do is continue to edit/refine your question and hope that it makes sense to someone who can help. (Typos reduce question clarity.) If you require urgent support, you may need to seek paid Joomla support.

    Hello. I working on a simple module that have a simple backend form composed with custom field and I looking for a event to process something during it submition. If anyone have an idea on how to do this.

    Thanks in advance :)

    @carcam_twitter
    Hi @BeRoots , do you mean to process the form settings after clicking save on module configuration?
    Sebastien Deschamps
    @BeRoots
    @carcam_twitter, Yes. Ideally i want to resize and create thumbnail from an uploaded image when the form is submit. I look on this way at this time to create a plugin for my module to do this: https://docs.joomla.org/Supporting_plugins_in_your_component
