People often ask me what my favorite extensions are for Joomla and what extensions we use at Pixel Point Creative Joomla Web Design. I thought I would share my thoughts.
1. Although it is not only for Joomla, by far the most useful tool in my arsenal when developing with Joomla is Firebug. Firebug is an add on for the Firefox browser that allows you to trouble shoot your code. Indispensable! I could go into great detail about all the features it has, but I won?t. I assure you that once you use it, you will never be without it. It is kind of like going from dial up to high-speed internet. Once you get it, you never go back.
2. NinjaXplorer: this is an extension by Ninja Forge. It is a fork of Joomla explorer for Joomla 1.0 and allows you to view all of your Joomla files in a manner similar to Windows Explorer.
3. JCE- The Joomla Content Editor is a WYSIWYG editor that is far superior to the included Tiny editor. You can upload images. link to PDFs and so much more. This should be in the core of Joomla.
4. Joomla Pack – Creates a site backup that can be restored on any Joomla!-capable server. It creates a full backup of your site in a single archive. The archive contains all the files, a database snapshot and a restoration script (derived from the standard Joomla! installer).
5.Jback Up -A plugin that backups the database of Joomla!1.5 site daily and sends it you via email.
1. Kunena- Powerful Joomla forum.
2.Jom Social- Create your own social network like Facebook or Myspace. Quite powerful and full featured.
3. Quick FAQ- Create a powerful and full featured FAQ section.
4. RS Tickets- Advanced Joomla! Help Desk ticketing system. We also use this on our site. We Love it! Works great.
5.Nbill- Complete online billing solution. Enable you to manage financial transactions, orders, and invoicing for your business, and to offer products and services for sale online using order forms that you can build yourself.
6. Teamlog- Web based Time Tracking Solution for Joomla! 1.5 focused on simplicity. I use this everyday. Simple and powerful.
7. Project Fork- Joomla’s best project management component.
8. Anything Tabs- This is a Pixel Point Creative plugin that allows you to add links to your social network sites. It comes with tabs for many popular sites like twitter, facebook, you tube, myspace and more. They are presented as static links located in the bottom corner. You can see these tabs in action on many of our demos and on our own website Pixel Point Creative
These are only some of the many great extensions available for Joomla. The Joomla extensions directory is updated frequently and there are many options in many categories to fulfill just about every need out there. I use Joomla everyday and have been developing Joomla sites for the past 4+ years so I have tested and used many different extensions. My list is based on extensions I use everyday and that I recommend.
