Fix Jasny File Input in Avant theme and IE / MS Edge

Applies to “Avant – Clean and Responsive Bootstrap 3.3.2 Admin” or Avant 1.4 (c) 2015 as written in readme.txt.

Open /HTML/assets/css/styles.css, find the following block:

.btn-file > input {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  right: 0;
  margin: 0;
  opacity: 0;
  filter: alpha(opacity=0);
  transform: translate(-300px, 0) scale(4);
  -webkit-transform: translate(-300px, 0) scale(4);
  font-size: 23px;
  height: 100%;
  width: 100%;
  direction: ltr;
  cursor: pointer;

Comment out the following lines:

/*  transform: translate(-300px, 0) scale(4);
  -webkit-transform: translate(-300px, 0) scale(4); */

Now Select file/image etc buttons should work in Internet Explorer 11 (as tested on 11.306.10586.0) and Microsoft Edge.

To make the examples in File Inputs section of the Form Components page work, open /HTML/form-components.htm and change:

<script type='text/javascript' src='assets/plugins/form-jasnyupload/fileinput.min.js'></script>


<script type='text/javascript' src='assets/plugins/form-jasnyupload/fileinput.js'></script>

Now the controls and image preview are functioning.

Additionally the plugin could be upgraded to a more recent version, select “Download source code” and replace /HTML/assets/plugins/form-jasnyupload/fileinput.js and fileinput.less files with the ones from the downloaded archive. Upgrading to 3.1.3 makes “too much recursion”-errors disappear from the JS-console.

Change default Joomla 404 behaviour or style

To show custom 404 page or redirect user on some error to home page or somewhere else copy file error.php located under /templates/system/ into youre template folder eg /templates/mytemplate/error.php.

For example to redirect user on 404 add these lines right after defined( ‘_JEXEC’ ) or die( ‘Restricted access’ );. This works for Joomla 1.5.

if ( $this->error->code == '404' )

For Joomla 1.6 and 1.7 use

$this->error->getCode() == 404

Of course you can just change style and html of the same file. This is just example for the case you want to redirect user to another page and dont want them too see 404 at all or to add some other custom logic.
