I’ve recreated a website for my friend using the Joomla portal-framework, the successor of the late Mamboo portal-engine. I personally think it is a bit over-rated, not an easy-to-use system at all.
One huge error I found with the 1.5 install: the search got mixed up somehow, and it failed with the following error message:
..and of course there were no checknohtml() functions in any of the directories.
So i’ve downloaded the last stable version, and found out that originally, this function must live in the ~/administrator/components/com_search/helpers/search.php file. So i’ve just copied over the old file, and voila: it’s working.
