A couple of MySQL DML things I did not know

MySQL-serverAs I'm coming from Microsoft SQL Server environment, working with MySQL is constantly surprising me in many ways, both good and bad :) In contrast to MS SQL I need to focus significantly more on the performance of our queries and be prepared that everything is not as easy as in MS SQL world :)

SQL script to create intro image by parsing article text in Joomla 3.x

joomla-migrace-sql-scriptWhen I migrated one of my web site from Joomla 1.5 into Joomla 3.3 I found there is finally nice feature in Joomla 3.x called Images and Links, which is assigned image to article like thumbnail images in Wordpress. New themes know what to you in responsive templates and it works really nice. Well if you have assigned images. To not do it manully I created parsing SQL scripts, that will help you do it on one click.
