HTML paragraph double spacing in Internet Explorer

Spacing between lines separated by Paragraph tag <p></p> is much wider in Internet Explorer (comparing to Firefox, Chrome or Safari).

Resolved by adding following code to .css file:

p {
     margin:  0 0 1em 0;
     padding:  0;


Website goes dark on mouse click in IE


A website goes dark is user clicks anywhere on the web page. Only affects Internet Explorer 9 users (IE 10 maybe affected as well, but it is still in beta haven't been tested).


Website used Lightbox 2 to display images (v2.04). It seems that this version is not compatible with IE9. The dimming effect is supposed to darken the website only when a pop-up lighbox image is displayed, however, in IE 9 it was dimming whole website after clicking anywhere on any page, even without images at all.

Joomla - Increase search box limit

By default Joomla allows to enter only 20 characters in the search box. This can be changed by a simple core hack. Be aware that any changes to Joomla core files can be overwritten by a Joomla update.
