How to make a URL SEF when triggered from Joomla backend?

How to make a URL SEF when triggered from Joomla backend?

Any Joomla developer worth his salt knows to use JRoute::_() to ensure he produces SEF URLs. This is an important SEO thing! However, if you’re writing code that does things from the Joomla Admin, the URLs turn out to be non-SEF. No I’m not talking about the URLs of the Joomla Admin itself.

For Instance,

Shika sends a notification email with a link to the course when a user enrolls for a course. When the user enrolls from the frontend, the email contains the shiny SEF URL. But if the admin enrolls the user, the email contains a non-SEF link in spite of correctly using JRoute::_() Don’t believe us ? Try for yourself :) Depending on the type of link you are creating the link might even have the part /administrator in it.

How to create widgets for your Shika user dashboard?

How to create widgets for your Shika user dashboard?

In the process of making Shika's user dashboard more user friendly we have made some major changes by adding new widgets to the dashboard. With this you can now build your own widgets and give your users the freedom to choose which widgets he/ she wants to be shown on the dashboard.

We have created a new table #__tjlms_dashboard which contains all the widgets per users. If the users has not set any widgets to be shown or is using the default dashboard, basic dashboard plugins will be shown.

For Shika 1.0, user will not be able to select the widget and hence only the basic widget will be shown. This feature will be implemented in version 1.1.
