I was recently looking for a clean solution to prevent the display of module positions on gazzetta.gr - the 2nd most high traffic Joomla website, after joomla.org.

The first thing that came to mind was the htaccess trick I had spotted on the Joomla forums here: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?p=1887090#p1887090

Thing is, this rule does not work if you have SEF on and you’re in some inside page.

So I just wrote a simple solution which is PHP based and you can include right at the top of your Joomla template for ease of maintenance (template designers can use this too as an XML option ;) )…

Make sure the following code goes at the very top of your template's index.php file, but within <?php and ?> tags:

// Properly prevent ?tp=1 module position exposure on Joomla sites using PHP only$currentURL = explode('?',substr(JURI::base(),0,-1).$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);if($_GET['tp']) header('Location: '.$currentURL[0]);

Check it out here

UPDATE: There seems to be a Joomla API solution for that. Thanks to Cory Webb for letting me know. Both solution follow...

JRequest::setVar('tp',0);

simpleimagegallerypro_300x88_24.pngNEW VERSION 3.7.0 released in December 2019!

Adding image galleries inside your Joomla articles has never been easier!

Using the "Simple Image Gallery PRO" extension from JoomlaWorks you can quickly display a folder of images on your server as a stylish image gallery within any Joomla article, K2 item, Virtuemart or HikaShop product and any other Joomla extension that loads the Joomla WYSIWYG editor (TinyMCE, JCE, JCK Editor etc.).

The process is dead simple. You just click the "Simple Image Gallery PRO" editor plugin button located under any WYSIWYG editor box, anywhere in Joomla and you can easily select an image folder to present as an image gallery on your site. Don't have images uploaded yet? You can just drag and drop images in the extension's built-in uploader and batch upload images, one by one, without overloading your server or requiring high memory limits from PHP. Then add captions using the intuitive interface, save and simply select to add inside your Joomla content.

The "Simple Image Gallery PRO" editor plugin will insert a Joomla plugin snippet for every image gallery (something like { gallery}mygallery:200:140:0:2{/gallery} inside the editor content) and then this snippet will "automagically" present as an image gallery, in a stylish thumbnail grid (or slideshow) with "lightbox" popups to showcase the original images, when users click on the thumbnails!

"Simple Image Gallery PRO" is the best Joomla gallery system because a) it's easy to use & manage, b) it allows you to embed image galleries right where your content is (and not redirect your visitors to some other "gallery" section!), c) it offers multiple layouts/templates to present your image gallery and d) it supports the best popup (lightbox/modal) engines to display the original images.

Check out the demo we prepared, showcasing multiple galleries with different layouts on the same page.

Now fully responsive & Joomla 1.5 - 3.x compatible!

Frontpage SlideShow
is the easiest & most eye-catching way to display your featured articles or products in your Joomla website.
