    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?

    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.

    @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.

    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"?

    @N8Solutions

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

    Joomla is for idiots

    others should do the same.

    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.

    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 :)

    Carlos M.
    @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
    I think to create a custom event onBeforeSave to do this. What do you think about it ?
    Sebastien Deschamps
    @BeRoots
    ...
    In fact my main question is whether it is possible to directly integrate a plugin within a module (or component) rather than creating a dedicated plugin. If anyone will tell me that :)
    Carlos M.
    @carcam_twitter
    You can use an extension family plugin that calls onExtensionBeforeSave event. If you are thinking on using an existing plugin you my create an extension plugins that call the existing one after the module is saved.

    @mickmackusa
    Can we all agree to think bigger here? If you are seeking coding support, ask a question on JoomlaStackExchange. If you are wanting to discuss something specifically relevant to JOOMLA and GITHUB then use GITTER. Why use JSE? Because it is a superior format for processing and archiving specific questions and articulaye answers in a way that is easily found via search engine results. Please avoid seeking support via Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Gitter, etc because even if someone can help you, there help will be limited to a 1-to-1 interaction. Conversely, JoomlaStackExchange, StackOverflow, and JoomlaForum are dedicated site designed for this very purpose. Please transfer relevant correspondence from here to JSE, then continue offering support on JSE. I don't mean to be demanding, it just makes absolutely no sense for people to ask for or provide support for non-github issues here.
    Hi
    ...ugh, I can't even correct my typos here.

    hey guys, anyone knows how to make a plugin with thats gives a message to accept cookie to the tuser
    Mick Harner
    @mickmackusa
    @Engjell00 If you have performed some research and have made an attempt to self-solve, then you have enough ingredients to post a good question on Joomla Stack Exchange (which is where Team Joomla would like you to post support questions -- evidenced by a link being provided in the Help menu in the Administration/backend of every Joomla site). Posts on Gitter should exclusively pertain to Joomla questions relevant to Git topics, not general Joomla support questions. Before posting on JSE, please take the tour and learn about how to craft a "good" question. Posting clear, complete, researched questions in JSE will help you to receive the highest quality support and help future researchers to locate valuable knowledge for years into the future. Effectively, you can support Joomla while receiving support yourself: Win-Win!

    I'm sorry I just started to learn Joomla since the internship I got today. I've been told to make a plugin for this functionality. I'm sorry I didn't mean to burden you.
    Engjell Bislimi
    @Engjell00
    and since most of the ''plugin'' already made for this functionality and I need to pay to see an example it's kinda not helping me
