Can this extension work with a component like DJClassifieds?

sent you a mail

It was noted that the date of the last update was 7 October. There must be a mistake. When was Hide my Joomla upgraded ? Thank you

There is no need for an update as there are no changes and it supports the last version of Joomla!, as soon as there is an issue/update/feature I will provide an update. There might be coming a great new optimisation soon, I can’t promise when because it is complex.

Thanks for your quick response. A new optimization ? Interesting !

Are you inspired by the Hide My WP plugin’s features to make Hide My Joomla ?

sorry for the late reply, I have never seen an issue with some kind of component. If you have an issue I will of course help you

Hi Does it support all versions of Joomla? including the latest one, 3.7.2? + is it compatible with all joomla components/plugins/modules? + Does it affect on SEO? + If we use it after a website is created, is it OK to use it? Google wouldn’t mind? thanks.

Yes it is working with the latest versions of Joomla

The first thing I would say about this component (THIS IS MY BEST PURCHASE ON THEME FOREST!!!!!)

I do not like CMS as WP or JOOMLA evrywere you see on source code JOOMLA GENERATOR JOOMLA WP WP WO /templates/blablabla/style.css because they leave footprint is all the side and manually takes hours and days to remove them and many failures appear. As you all know.

Thanks to (Yusuf ) he continued to solve it and always answered the emails … You have to understand there are many platforms and templates where this component can not function at 100% because it is not easy make a standart for all JOOMLA FRAMEWORKS.

If you do web professionally and want to remove stupid comments from the handymans who tell you always (IF IT IS JOOMLA is easy to create web bla bla).I recommend using this component!

thanks for your comment. I am glad that you like it !

Sent you a message regarding a bug with latest joomla 3.7.5

Its not a bug. I replied you on your email. Could you reply if this has solved your issue?

Thank you for your email and support. Issue solved!

have a great day !


I think, as long as you let browse the templateDetails.xml, this Component does not really hide Joomla!: view-source:http://joomlabusiness.net/hidemyjoomla/skins/vn85g/templateDetails.xml

What dou you think?


You can never hide it as long as you know that this is possible with every site. This component is changing the calls to be made to another url.

Sure i can make exceptions for the default xml files, those exceptions can also be made by the user but in the first place the component does what it says.

You also have xml for plugins and components, which the same. If people really come and say hey i need exceptions for these specific calls, i implement them. I did this before for someone who asked it.

Of course you CAN HIDE IT: To disallow browsing xml-files (except the sitemap) this snippet in your .htaccess would do the job: <FilesMatch "(?<!sitemap)\.xml$"> Order allow,deny Deny from all </FilesMatch> I think you really made a good plugin – so your component does what it says, okay. I just suggest, to use additional possibilties for more effectiveness on “hiding joomla” AND to improve joomla security also.

Thank you.

Yeah you are right this is a way but i am going for another way because on joomla 3.8 they improved the routing functionality so I am thinking to not do htaccess overrides and directly use another approach :-)

Thanks for thinking about it though

best component

Thanks !!

Great component. Just purchased it. But There’s a problem with Joomla 3.8.2. Backend menu cannot be access anymore after upgrade. Will there be an update? Thanks.

What is the problem you are facing, i mean cant access is a big word.

All the backend menus not clickable anymore and all icons disappeared after update to 3.8.2. For 3.8.1 it works well. I cannot make a site restoration because all menu to it is not clickable.

Let me double check it on my end test how it works with 3.8.1 vs 3.8.2 Maybe this will result in an update of the component. Thanks for letting now.

Just bought and installed your component “Hide my Joomla”

The problem i have is that the front page is blank after installation.

Tried to disable the component and plugin (backend). Problem remains What can i do?

you have to restore your complete htaccess. Not only the fix. Thats why the component makes a backup of it. Disable the plugin restore the htaccess to the original htaccess of Joomla and all should be working. If its not working after doing this then there was already an issue with your site. The plugin only rewrites the links of your template and nothing else

Default joomla htaccess is restored! NO HTACCESS BACKUP FILE CREATED Site is still down.

I asked you to send me login details. Send it and I will restore it. I think you made an issue.

This component break sites...all sites i have used it on gives me problems, links in frontend stops working after a while, it sometimes happens after a couple of days or weeks. And if you look at the htaccess file after this happens you wil notice a total mess by this component, now recently i had links to codecanyon in my .htaccess ?? Please come up with an explanation? This component is not working correctly.

For those having problems with broken admin links, probably you missed this info that should be in the docs, add the code to your htaccess provided here

It also now breaks yootheme pagebuilder administration, builder gives a blank screen when this component is installed. As soon it is removed blankscreen is gone. I have re-installed plenty of times, and now my patience is over, i had to uninstall this extension due to all problems it gives me. I have also included the code at the end of the htaccess file, still same results

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/administrator/(.)$ [OR] RewriteRule ^.$ – [L] </IfModule>

I hope you fix this component, the purpose of this extension is great, but unfortunately is not working and can cause massive problems to the website owners.

sorry for the late reply, could you sent me a mail with an explanation so I can discuss it with you. There are still people using it with the latest version of Joomla. I am currently testing it with Joomla 4.0 Alpha as soon as everything is working i’ll release an update ( if needed ).

Any update on this?

on what ?
