3 questions I am new to this...

Post by agallow » Mon Feb 08, 2010 1:58 am

1. How does one's website get hacked?

2. How do you block adverting pop-ups. I mistakenly pushed allow pop-ups while working on the admin (backend) part. I would like to know how to undo this mistake because I do not want pop-ups on my website. This happen while using Mozilla Firefox....do I contact firefox or can I switch something on the back end of my website?

3.I know that pay pal is free however for those who do not want to use pay pal on their site I had developed credit card acceptance software that I would like to sell. Believe it or not, I paid my webmaster 5-k to build it ...Perhaps I was taken advantage of..How do I go about selling this software coding to joomla users who do not what to use pay pal?
