Joomla Module Frontpage not showing latest article

On the frontpage of Escape Surfboards Media Pages - I've used the Joomla module Mini Front Page ( mod_minifrontpage ) to display the latest blog entry for the Surf Reports category.
However I was getting a problem with the article not being the latest entry. A small change to the mySql statement in the helper file for this module has sorted this problem out in this scenario.

OPEN modules/mod_minifrontpage/helper.php

FIND line 95 - which should be the ORDER BY command.

I changed this to


this now works for me.

Surf Report:Polzeath Surf Reports

Blogs - Surfboard Manufacturing Blogs, SUP Blogs, Kite Boarding Blogs, Retro Surfing Blogs

Gallery - Polzeath Surf Pictures, constantine surf photos, UK surfing pictures

Getting rid of  à from Mysql Searchs.

Getting rid of  à from Mysql Searchs.

I was returning a search from a MySQL database and in my results I'm getting these signs around £ signs 'Â Ã' .

The way to get rid of this was to change the collation of this table in MySQL. It was latin and after changing it to Utf8_unicode_ci .

stop editPlus overtyping

Today when I turned started to use my EditPlus software I found I could not use the return button as I could before. Insted of creating a new line it would just drop to the line below. Also when editing it would overtype.

I could not find any information on this from google searches. So after solving this problem have created this blog in the hope you will find it and save you some time.

The searches I made in Google where.

Edit plus overtyping

stop editplus overtyping

editPlus return button not working

editPlus turn off overtyping

I could not find anything of use here or in the softwares documentation so had to cover every option I could in the menu.

What you need to do it is turn off the 'auto indent' under the 'Document' menu item on the top menu.

Hope this helps you out.
