Does anyone have a clue about the displaying of Hits in the Popular articles section?

 

Did Joomla do away with the viewer "Ordering field" capability selection next to the viewer "Display field" capability that is displayed on a list of items page?

 

All that I see that I have control over is the Filter field and Display field number of items displayed on a page.

 

Thanks

Don't think Joomla is a member of this forum,so i would blame a guy called Parsloes 1928 nearly.Not sure what you are on about though.Maybe ask a guy called Haggis he also talks a bit strange :wink:

SUNDAY 21st FEBRUARY 2010, 10am to 4pm,......That's the date for The Celebration of Speedway at Paradise Wildlife Park and entry to the Park is FREE for Speedway fans on that day. Just tell the Pay Cabin that you are going to the Celebration of Speedway and you will be admitted f.o.c.

 

If you have not yet visited the National Speedway Museum, then this is a great opportunity to do so and to join the big pre-season day out for all Speedway fans. Win tickets for the British Grand Prix at Cardiff in our prize draw and have your photograph taken sitting on a Speedway bike. With any luck, you may also hear the sound of some unsilenced Douglas, Jap and Jawas machines being fired up and get that nostalgic whiff of Castrol 'R' Racing Oil in the air.

 

Apart from the Museum, the Collectors' Fayre, the displays of bikes, rider interviews, barbeque, and meeting old and new friends, you can also visit the Wildlife Park f.o.c. and enjoy seeing the other Tigers (not Sheffield or Glasgow), but the magnificent, 'Rocky' and all the other animals which are so well looked after in the Park.

 

Check out Speedway Star for details.

 

Paradise Wildlife Park is signposted from Junction 25 of the M25, so, to alter Uncle Len Silver's motto from Hackney,................"Make It A Date, Sunday, AFTER eight (am)!"

Thanks for that post about the Museum , "Witches Forever", (nice photos) and the Celebration of Speedway but I forgot to mention earlier that anyone wanting to have a table at The Collectors' Fayre in the Events Marquee, should contact Andy Griggs, Tel. 01553-827-063 or

E-mail andy@apgee.org.uk

Also the latest news is that Barry Briggs, Freddie Williams and Sweden's Bengt Jansson will be there on the 21st, so don't miss out on a great FREE Speedway day out and the opportunity to visit the Wildlife Park too.

Really fantastic day despite the early rain but the sun came out and made everything all right, really interesting seeing all the different faces.

Pretty decent day, although we didn't set foot in the museum, the kids weren't interested and we'd seen it all before.

I was going to buy a copy of the 2009 Rockets Highlights DVD from Ken at T2TV, but I'd left my wallet at home. "A lucky escape", the other half said, "why would you want to spend twenty quid on a five minute DVD?"

And that's from a Berwick supporter!! :blink:

excellent day ..... first visit to the Museum and i wasn't one bit dissapointed. a guided tour by the great "Flying haggis" himself.. yes thank you Haggis for the info and opportunity to photograph your kind self beside your own equiptment.. and a brief chat about Exeter and Ivans Bikes :wink: am looking forward to Ivan coming over this summer, but forgot to ask ... will he be visiting the museum himself ? .. would be great PR Haggis .. imagine that !!

a very varied and established museum now, which was topped by a few wonderful "start ups" of old machines outside in the well assembled display area, along with the youth of today performing some cycle speedway racing !

nice to bump into a few friends too ... and Shadders and his wonderful family, a few faces from down South London way, and of course, the icing on a very big speedway birthday cake .. my guided tour by the great haggis.. what a day !

 

oh and the kids enjoyed the excellent animal park, and play areas too ... that helped keep them going for the day !!

Glad you and many others enjoyed the day today despite the weather, Sean and glad to hear that the kids enjoyed going round the Wildlife Park. I must admit that whenever I visit the Museum, I also wander round the Park to see the animals and say 'Hello' to Rocky the Tiger (Glasgow or Sheffield?)

 

Regarding Ivan; When the great man is in UK, I am sure he will be visiting the Museum, even if it is only to make sure that we have kept his bikes clean and polished! If we get an exact date when he will be there, we will have the details in Speedway Star. By the time he comes over, his new book will be ready so he will be promoting that around the country and probably at the Museum too.

 

Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting us on such a wet, cold and windy day, Speedway supporters are tops and I am only sorry that the tracks did not come along to promote their fixtures for the new season, but maybe that is too easy to promote your club in front of hundreds of fans free of charge?

Talking of free of charge, thanks also to Park owner, Peter Sampson for giving us free entry today for our Celebration of Speedway 2010.......Roll On Next Year!

Sorry you didn't think it was worthwhile visiting the Museum, Shadders as you said that you have (quote) "Seen it all before".

I think that if you HAD popped in to the Museum, you would have seen that it has changed a lot. Mac and Elaine are always replacing exhibits and bringing in new displays and ideas, so there is always something new and fresh to see.

We are still hoping to raise the funds to extend the Museum by moving one wall out further as we still have lots of memorabilia and bikes to put on show.

Anyway, I'm glad that you thought it was a 'pretty decent day' and I think the turnout of fans and displays was terrific despite the cold and wet weather, so thanks again for your support.
