Joomla 1.0 Content Missing

Was having an issue viewing some content on a Joomla 1.0 site. Noticed that the server code was php5.3. There are some issues with some versions of Joomla with php5.3. For the 1.5 branch, the latest versions work but the earlier ones do not as late as 1.5.14.

At any rate, without errors showing up it is often hard to find the solution without hacking core code. One such solution is to downgrade php which may be simple in a cgi environment.

Another possible solution was found at this blog posting.

The basic idea is to change the core Joomla 1.0 file includes/Cache/Lite/Function.php. By modifying the line that looks like:

$arguments = func_get_args();


$arguments = func_get_args();
$numargs = func_num_args();
for($i=1; $i < $numargs; $i++){
$arguments[$i] = &$arguments[$i];

The content becomes visible. There are other issues that could arise due to improper database content Finish Publishing Dates, and clearing the browser cache as well as site cache.

    I had the same problem. This hack solved the half of my problem very well: the content is not hidden any more.
    But my CONTACT page remains unreachable (completely blank page):
    Do you have any suggestions?

    Thank you very much
