Creative Social Widget
2Glux has, once again, come up with a "must have" extension. With flexible positioning, superb visual appeal, excellent support and a product that, as always, works straight out of the box with very little effort required on my part. Yes, I'm lazy and 2Glux allow me to continue to be so...gotta love that.

Currently testing this on a professional dance company's site but will be rolling it out across my other sites along with some of their other extensions such as sexy contact form, admin forever, admin unlocker and, probably, sexy polling once I've tested that one.

One of the most professional and helpful extension developers I've had the pleasure of working with. Very highly recommended.

Akeeba Backup
Between this and Admin Tools Pro, Nikos has given site developers/admins some of the most powerful tools you'll ever use. Backup is so simple to use and configure and does exactly what it says. Add Kickstart into the mix and site migration is now a doddle, even if you're changing URLs. Been using backup for quite some time and on some heavy duty sites and it's never missed a beat. Seriously, if you're still using manual backup and're wasting your time...Akeeba Backup is all you'll ever need.

Creative Contact Form
Personally, I don't care if it has a backlink - if I want to remove it I can, it's not difficult to get around the coding and the !important tags don't much bother me either. Ultimately, what I want is a contact form that works, looks good and doesn't cause any conflicts - the elegance of the coding is immaterial.

This module works perfectly under 3.1.4, looks good and does exactly what I need it to do. The fields are customisable to the point where I can include everything I need (a first for me) and the backlink I'm happy to leave in until I buy the full version. More importantly, it hasn't caused any issues with the other modules I'm running which means I don't have to waste time chasing down and resolving jquery conflicts. I can't ask for better than that.

Does exactly what is says it'll do straight out the box and has enough options to ensure that it's ideal for everybody. The fact that you can customise the button images only adds to its appeal. No conflicts either - awesome.

Smart Portfolio
I'm already using Fancy Social Slider, another superb module from Pulse and I was expecting big things from Smart Portfolio. I wasn't disappointed. Easy to configure and to customise, the only thing I needed was the ability to use HTML in the descriptions. I contacted the developers and, within 2 hours, they had rewritten the code and sent me a new version of the module. I have NEVER experienced this level of response, courtesy and knowledge from a developer...these guys are fantastic and worth every cent. I will definitely be using them again, ideally for custom work because I know I can trust them and that they'll deliver the's very rare that I'm ever in a position to be able to say this but Pulse Extensions are one of the most professional companies I've ever dealt with. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Social Fancy Sliders
The module is very simple to configure and does exactly what it says it will do. Looks great and the slider works really well and adds to the feel of the whole thing. Had a problem with config.php and it was resolved by the developers within a very short space of time with them sending me a new config.php file that worked perfectly.

I've tried LOADS of social modules and this is the only one I'd recommend without any reservations. Well written and fantastic support - from my point of view, it's worth the money just for the quality and speed of support alone...having the module as well is the icing on the cake. Highly recommended!

Perfect. Does what it needs to do with no fuss and no issues. This is the first time I've ever used Joomla (Adobe seem to have totally lost the plot with Dreamweaver so I've switched) and it worked first time and continued to work even after I'd played around with the coding a little to customise the look. It integrates seamlessly and is just what I was looking for. If you can't get it to work, YOU'RE doing something wrong. Well written and with excellent support and a developer who listens to feedback and answers questions quickly.

Thanks, Souvik for a flawless component.
