Reboot Linksys / Cisco SPA VOIP Phones remotely

Cisco SPA 504G

One annoying thing with configuring Linksys or Cisco SPA VOIP phones remotely is that web administration interface doesn't have option to reboot the phone. There is a little trick which allows to do exactly this though. Simply add /admin/reboot to the phone's IP in web URL (e.g. http://192.168.0.51/admin/reboot) and providing there are no active calls, phone will reboot.

SPA will reboot when it is idle

Tested on:
Linksys SPA942
Linksys SPA962
Cisco SPA504G

Joomla JoomGallery - add link in SlimBox to Detail View (for comments and ratings)

JoomGallery in one of the most powerful Joomla gallery extensions with countless number of options and settings. I won't go into details on how JoomGallery works, If you are reading this you probably already familiar with this component.

My aim was to give people an easy and quick way to browser images in Category View and SlimBox without going through Detail View.  You can achieve this by enabling following option:
Configuration Manager > Category View > General Settings > Entering Detail View > SlimBox

Configuration Manager > Category View > General Settings > Entering Detail View > SlimBox

This way people can browse pictures in Category View and clicking on any picture opens a large version in a SlimBox. Unfortunately this removes ability to comment and rate pictures because the only way to do this is open image in the Detail View. So, what we need is ability open Detail View from SlimBox.
To achieve this all you need is a single line of code in a right place:

I’ve been experimenting with JoomGallery 2.0 ACL Beta Joomla extension trying to upload large number of images using FTP method. In general I was pretty impressed with this extension and it deals with large uploads pretty well. However, some images failed to import into the gallery with following errors:
