Coming soon...

I am working hard on a complete User Guide for you.

I hope to have this finished as soon as possible.

1) Requirements

Better Preview will only work correctly if your setup meets these requirements:

  • Up-to-date version of Joomla:
    • Joomla 2.5.10 or higher
    • Joomla 3.2.2 or higher
  • PHP 5.3+ ( No PHP 5.2 support! )
  • PHP mbstring (Multibyte String) functions enabled
  • MySQL 5+

Important: I can only provide support for setups that:

  • meet the above requirements;
  • do not have extension files or Joomla! core files which have been altered in any way.

2) Installation

You can either install Better Preview by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

Note: When updating Better Preview, you do not need to uninstall it first. The package will update all the files automatically.

Keep in mind that when you update to a major new version (or uninstall first), you might lose some configuration settings.

2.1) NoNumber Extension Manager

It is very easy to install/update any NoNumber Extension using the NoNumber Extension Manager.

Please see the User Guide for the NoNumber Extension Manager for more detailed information...

2.2) Joomla! Extension Manager

  2. Log into your Joomla administrator
  3. In the menu, choose: Extensions >> Extension Manager
  4. Under 'Upload Package File' select the extension zip.

If you have problems installing Better Preview, please try the manual installation process as described here: docs.joomla.org/Installing_an_extension

3) Uninstallation

You can either uninstall Better Preview by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

If you no longer use any NoNumber extensions, you can also uninstall the NoNumber Framework plugin by using the Joomla! core extension manager.
