Q: After following along with the exercise files, all has gone well until I installed JCE. When I did this my control panel on the backend came up with the following "strict standards" error:<br /><br /><span style="font-family: Courier;">( ! ) Strict standards: Non-static method WFEditor::getInstance() should</span><br /><span style="font-family: Courier;">not be called statically, assuming $this from incompatible context in</span><br /><span style="font-family: Courier;">C:\wamp\www\administrator\components\com_jce\models\model.php on line 112</span><br /><br />Please advise. I looked for a way of uninstalling JCE and could not find one. The exercise site seems to work quite well otherwise, although I can't change the profile of JCE as instructed because of similar messages throughout the JCE profile.

A: Anytime you receive an error about "strict standards" when work with WAMP (any additional messaging doesn't matter), please apply the following fix. This fix is also described in the Joomla! 3 Essential Training Chapter 11 video, "Turning off WAMP error reporting."<br /><br />Because the error reporting is an issue with WAMP and not Joomla!, this fix works for Joomla! 1.6, 1.7, 2.5, and 3.0, as well as later versions of Joomla.<br /><br />1. In WAMP, find the icon in the system tray and click it.<br /><br />2. Choose PHP - php.ini from the list.<br /><br />3. Search the php.ini file for the following line:<br /><br /><span style="font-family: Courier;">error_reporting =</span> {there will be some kind of value in this place}<br /><br />4. Change whatever value is there on that line to the following:<br /><br /><span style="font-family: Courier;">error_reporting = E_ERROR</span><br /><br />5. Save and close php.ini, then go back to the WAMP menu and choose "stop<br />all services", followed by "start all services" to reboot Apache.<br /><br />6. You should no longer see errors. If errors are still present, then do<br />the following:<br /><br />a. follow steps 1 and 2 above<br /><br />b. Search the php.ini file for the following line:<br /><br /><span style="font-family: Courier;">display_errors = off</span><br /><br />Change this to<br /><br /><span style="font-family: Courier;">display_errors = on</span><br /><br />c. Follow step 5 above.

Q: The author suggests viewing <em>Joomla! 1.6 Essential Training</em> for more information, but I can't find this course in the library. Where do I go next?

A: <em>Joomla! 1.6 Essential Training </em>and<em> Joomla! 1.7 Essential Training</em> have been retired, since those versions of the software are no longer available. We recommend viewing one of the newer courses instead: <a href=""><em>Joomla! 3.3 Essentials: Modules, Components, Extensions, and Templates</em> </a>or <a href=""><em>Joomla! 3 Essential Training</em></a>.
