Abivia's Redaction Utility is a simple plugin that lets you remove unwanted output from your pages. PHP 5 is required.

Does your favourite extension insist on putting a back link in it's output? Our redaction plugin is exactly what you need. Now you can eliminate unwanted code without hacking the offending extension.

The Redact plugin is designed to remove unwanted signatures that other extensions or templates display in their output. The GPL explicitly allows you to modify code, despite many extensions that attempt to apply additional restrictions above and beyond the GPL. While is it possible to modify the code to remove these signatures, this customization complicates the process of applying updates from the extension developer. Abivia's plg_redact plugin lets you remove these unwanted notices without changing the code.

Installed on a version J3.1 - Works Perfect ( for now ) :)

Nice And Simple - Excellent .

Just Great Extension - Thank You .

Installed on a latest version (Joomla 2.5.11)

Easy installation, Easily enabled,

Configuration was hard because only documentation I've found was tool tips poorly formatted(bare tags).

But after a couple of tries the result was great configuration.

Thanks and regards

Owner's reply: Glad you managed to get it going.

There are some examples on the product page and there's a forum for posting rules (although not many do).

Abivia's SuperTable Plugin is designed to make your tabular data pop! SuperTable takes regular tabular data and turns it into a powerful and dynamic display in seconds. Latest Update Major upgrade includes automatic row height adjustment, better responsive layout, RTL support, and more. SuperTable Features System plugin lets you put a SuperTable anywhere on your site. Built-in CSS style library with presets and custom override to your own CSS file. Each table can have its own class to support multiple styles on the same page. See our web site for a tutorial and full feature documentation. SuperTable is a plugin, not a module. It doesn't have a fancy user interface, but you can create regular tables in your WYSIWYG editor and use SuperTable markup to create great results. This also means you can put a table in an article, in a module, anywhere.

For support please visit our forums. Version 1.6.6 fixes several issues with version 1.6.5. Version 1.6.5 fixes a parse bug thanks to changes at Twitter and adds updater support for J2.5 and 3.x. Version 1.6.4 handles recent (spring 2014) changes with new Twitter profiles and tags. No Twitter key is required. Abivia's Multi-Twitter module lets you construct complex twitter searches, filter and edit the results, and display them the way you want. Multi-Twitter can perform multiple searches then merge the results into a single feed. Other Twitter modules simply help you build a search query. Multi-Twitter doesn't. We let you use Twitter search syntax and add value by handling the search results in an intelligent manner. Full release history and parameter documentation is available on the extension page.

Update: the J1.6/1.7 version works fine in J2.5. Tired of removing robot user registrations from your site? User Killer was written for you. This simple plugin can remove two kinds of user: Registered but not activated after seven days (configurable). Activated but never logged in after 60 days (also configurable). User killer is a low overhead plugin, it runs just once every 24 hours (also configurable, of course). It also uses the core user functions, so that other user plugins are triggered. This allows other extensions to clean up their user data and keeps your site clean.

AutoCopy Automatic Copyright

Update: the 1.6/1.7 version runs fine on 2.5. AutoCopy automatically updates your site copyright notice every year. You can specify any copyright text you want, AutoCopy will replace "(c)" with the current year or a range of years. This makes it easy to embed a copyright notice in your footer text (we use it, take a look). You will only have to configure AutoCopy once. If the site was started in 2010, put that in as the start year. AutoCopy is so mind-numbingly brilliant that it compares the current year to the start year and writes ©2010 instead of ©2010-2010. Then in 2011 it will write ©2010-2011, without any manual intervention. Nobel Prize nominations are surely forthcoming.
Content Pattern

Abivia's Content Pattern plugin (ACP) is a simple template system that lets you achieve results similar to content construction kits. ACP lets you define variables that get applied to a "content pattern". It uses existing content tables and needs no core hacks. ACP is intended to make it simpler to maintain a Joomla site. It's designed to address two common problems: Articles have specialized formatting requirements that get corrupted by Javascript editors. Multiple articles that are created by copying an original template, creating duplicated content. The first problem makes it nearly impossible for a site developer to hand over content management to an end user. One careless edit and the article fails to display correctly. This is both frustrating for the user and it defeats the purpose of using a content management system. The second problem makes it more difficult to maintain a site. Everything is fine as long as the template doesn't change, but if it does, there are multiple copies that need to be updated manually.
