Here’s a few extensions for Joomla CMS that we’ve found very useful so we thought’d we’d share them with you.
- jLoginAlert Emails you when someone tries to login to your site.
- Mobile Joomla Reformats your site to fit mobiles
- JoomArt Extensions Manager Centralised management and updating of extensions
- Docman document/download manager with user login, notifications and a big supporting community.
- VirtueMart free ecommerce extension that can also be used as a catalogue.
- ReDJ allows you to create short urls on your site that redirect to actual pages. See www.2020media.com/contact for an example.
Coming soon for Joomla fans is going to be the release of Joomla 1.6. This is actually quite a major update, the current 1.5 release has been going for around 3 years and the release of 1.6 will open up Joomla far more to integrate with other services. This is an approach the Drupal has used very successfully so its a case of Joomla catching up with how the web is developing now.
