    Dear all,

    JA News 1.0.5 has been release. Almost charset problem has been fixed, report bug here if you encounter any after updated (I hope you won’t have to be). Tested and worked well with ISO-8859-1, UTF-8, CP1251, CP1252 etc.

    Regards,
    Ha Le-Viet.

    Hello,
    I’ve updated JA NEWS to 1.0.5 with same encoding problem after change Headline. I see, that only title and button has been fixed on my page, content on JA NEWS is same, wrong. I have used JCE editor without entities on my pages and I used UTF-8 charset. My page is http://www.qfoto.eu. Any news or help for me? The template is great, thanks.

    Serious bug in the 1.0.5 release.

    In previous versions the module name was “mod_janews”.
    Now the name is “mod_latestnews” thus conflicting with Joomlas built in module.

    I cant even install it since Joomla say I already have a module named “mod_latestnews” .

    Please advise if I am missing something here or it will be fixed?

    Thanks,

    I’m sorry, that’s my bad. I had picked up the wrong file while packaging. Problems solved.

    I’m really really sorry for these inconveniences. 🙁

    Unfortunately the first of unicode windows-1254 rollers shows Turkish characters fine. The unicode chars in the other 4 are replaced by black boxes with question marks inside.
    I think you have to check the box in the repository once again because you were saying you had released the wrong package (with mod_latestnews.php and .xml) last time. Probably you again dropped a wrong one when pulling mod_latest files out of the repository.

    Hi sural98 and arba,

    @sural98: Unfortunately, the Windows-1254 charset isn’t supported yet. As you can see in headlineloader.php file, there’s limited charset supported by PHP function htmlentities.

    @arba: Can you tell me what charset you are using?

    Regards,
    Ha Le-Viet.

    Do you mean no resolution will be available for windows-1254 (ISO-8859-9)?
    That than means I won’t be able to use JA_News module on my site:((

    I started from a clean 1.0.12 template and followed the directions.

    I normally use WYSIWYGPro for article creation on most sites. I decided to use JCE on this site because the newer Joomlart templates use <P class> elements which WYSIWYG Pro doesn’t support.

    FYI, WYSIWYG Pro can generate XHTML 1.0 Transitional content, while JCE only generates HTML 4 content.

    Ja_news works fine with HTML 4 content, but breaks horribly with XHTML 1.0 transitional content. I did some playing and it appears ja_news breaks when parsing <DIV> containers. It also has problems with some of the <img> tags. Not sure which ones. The effect of DIV class causes the module to not respect the # columns setting and ja_news places the third category into the right column.

    I have set the Ja-news to 2 colums, and have four categories. When I published my first article in the third category, I saw the same problems others have mentioned where the left modules flip into the right colum and the right column modules below the ja-news container.

    I have looked at the code, and could probably fix it. But I won’t – I paid for the subscription like everyone else.

    So, I have disabled ja-news and gone back to the front-page module. When it stabilizes, I may play with it again.

    Or if I see a really compelling reason to personally go fix the code, I might do that. But then, there are other front-page alternative modules out there at JED that may work as well.

    Kudos to the coders though. It is great to see them actually providing more than just templates. The whiners should realize that the OBLIGATION is for template creation, not for unique modules. Give them their credit.

    I like the template though! (Oh and the -brick/-blue/-green suffixes format incorrectly as well. -hilite properly frames the module however. I actually happen to like the error, because it makes the module look like it was a page taken from a spiral notebook.)

    Actually they wouldn’t be fired – they’d be HIRED by Microsoft – have you seen the ‘issues’ with Vista – and it costs a heckuvalot more than JA.

    Having said that…. being a non-techie – I could do with a lot more documentation – like resizing the columns, or even enlarging the Logo – the ADVANTAGE in proper doccumentation is that the JA team will spend less time in the forum answering questions
