The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™


byCallum, January 28, 2012
Tried three other tooltip extensions before this one, all three did not work as described, the tooltip text just came out on the frontpage without any hover efects. This one was installed and working in a couple of minutes and the tooltip box looked like web 2.0 straight off without any messing about. The tooltip examples on their site got me off to a quick start.

This is the best tooltip extension. I plan to use it again. An excellent extension!

Akeeba Backup
If you only install one extension, then install this one.

Stupidly, I installed a component this morning that was incompatible and crashed my admin area. I had no idea how to restore but knew I had done a backup just minutes ago thanks to the reminder from Akeeba back-up on the admin page when I logged in. I extracted the files to a temporary location then copies back to my root folder, then the brilliance of this component became clear. The backups are zipped with a restoration/installation directory that you are automatically taken to when you try to access your admin panel in your brwoser and you are taken through five simple steps to check your site and database settings, then voila! My site was back, weeks of work saved in a couple of minutes.

I cannot recommend this strongly enough. Every Joomla site should have this component.
