    I built a business directory site with JA Wall, and got it looking pretty much like I want it to, but when I use the .htaccess maker in Akeeba Admin Tools to protect the site from miscreants, it causes the grid to jumble and stacks cells on top of each other.

    Has anybody else seen this behavior, and can you tell me which of the many Admin Tools settings causes this problem? If not, then I can just step through the long list of parameters to see which one(s) are causing this.

    Hi Burly Nerd,

    I’m not quite sure of which settings are you using in Admin Tools, try to go through the settings and disable one by one to see which one caused this.

    The folks at Akeeba have seen this kind of issue before and suggested that I look for files being 403 blocked in the tmp or cache folder (which they say is intended for server-side cache).

    I used FireFox 57.0.4 Web Developer Tools, and saw that there are several .png files in the /cache/jalazyload/ folder that are 403 forbidden from client-side access by Akeeba Admin Tools. Those files are accessible, when the higher-security .htaccess file is removed.

    So, now I just have to make a workaround for these png files that doesn’t expose any .php or other sensitive items to potential hackers.

    For the benefit of others who run into this problem, there is an option inside the Akeeba Admin Tools Htaccess Maker called ‘Allow direct access, except .php files’.

    If you add the /cache/jalazyload/ folder to that option, and regenerate the higher-security .htaccess file, then it should fix the issue.
