1) Introduction

This guide provides in-depth information about What? Nothing! and will tell you:

  • what it does
  • how to install it
  • how to set-up and use it

2) What is 'What? Nothing!' ?

What? Nothing! is a Joomla! system plugin that not only changes the way you will experience Joomla!, but is known to also alter the way you perceive life in general. It achieves this by doing nothing at all.

Without going too much into detail, the amount of philosophy behind What? Nothing! goes far beyond the amount of programming that has gone into creating it and bringing it to the world.

What? Nothing! has received praise from many users who claim it to be one of, if not THE, most stable Joomla! extensions available.

3) Setting up What? Nothing!

There are a couple of settings in the What? Nothing! system plugin to make it do nothing in a way that best suites your needs.

Be sure to adjust these settings any time you feel it can do nothing more effectively.

4) Requirements

What? Nothing! 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.

5) Installation

You can either install What? Nothing! by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

Note: When updating What? Nothing!, 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.

5.1) NoNumber Extension Manager
