NEW FEATURE: Scheduled bandwidth throttling
Backup.com.au has alway had the ability to throttle the speed that a backup uploads at so that a client doesn't notice any affects on their internet performance. Now we've also added the ability to schedule changes to throttle.
Well now you can throttle your connection during the day, then after-hours when everyone has gone home, you can turn off the throttle and RELEASE THE HOUNDS!
The settings for the bandwidth throttle are managed at the server end of the process. Please contact us if you need help implementing this feature.
Joomla contact form not showing the correct reply-to address (seemingly).
Recently encountered a frustration where contact emails coming through our Joomla 2.5 website we showing our own email address as the reply-to address instead of the client's email address so we had to copy and paste their address into a forwarded email to reply to the client. Just clicking reply would reply to the email to ourselves.
Found out that it is not a Joomla problem but rather a logic misfire on Gmail's part, where it was seeing that we were sending the email to and from ourselves. We just changed the Joomla configuration for the sent-from field and it cured the misfire.
We found the solution here. Let us know if this helps you.
