Inceptive Tweetable
The only extension that does this!

This is an unique pro-active way of engaging with your site users and social media.

Very easy to set up - install, activate the plugin, and use the short-code between the piece of text you want to encourage people to tweet.

The support is excellent. There was slight quirk in J 2.5.18 where multiple tweets caused a duplication of the twitter icon. The developer responded within hours and uploaded a fix.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your kind words. We are happy you made a good use of our plugin.

Skype Status AJAX refresh
This is an elegant solution and nothing like it is available for Joomla so far.

I had a problem with getting this to appear on a Joomla 3.0 site and the developer, Stefano, fixed it within a couple of hours and made the updated version available on his site immediately.

The status update is very accurate and if there is an issue about this, it is most likely to do with Skype itself (it can have performance problems on some days) rather than the extension.

This is neat little plug-in that allows you to require user login to access Articles in standard Categories and items in K2.


The login is a modal window and the only thin lacking is an easy way to incorporate some intro text.

At the moment, you need to edit a long string variable in the extensions PHP file.

Authorship Markup
All you have to go is create a Goolge+ a/c with an email address that contains the domain the you wish to connect to.

Add the domain in the 'Contribute' section in your G+ a/c

(A good tutorial by kissmetrics on Authorship Markup is available online)

Install this extension and follow the very good instructions provided. It is all there, just need to pay attention to the details!

Simple Email Form
The extension is described in detail above and it does everything it claims simply and effectively.

The documentation is good, but this form is very intuitive to set up, a few minutes is all you need.

A real pleasure to use.

Display Code
I am glad to report this plugin is working on Joomla! 3.0

This is a great plugin and very useful for displaying Joomla or any other code within an article without the Joomla application trying to render it!

I have seen many tutorials, for example on the loadmodule syntax, where the example pseudo-code provided is rendered or is missing, making the information useless.

It is a shame this extension is so little appreciated

A note on usage: If you need to format your code, make sure to place the formatting code before and after the plugin embed tag, otherwise the formatting code will also appear un-rendered as text.

ALFContact
Unlike other contact forms, this doesn't take hours to configure.

It is simple but sophisticated in its functionality:

* Easy integration with Captcha;
* Painless addition of extra fields;
* Custom header and footer fields
* Customisable response page.

If only the core Joomla contact form was as good as this. In fact it has all the functionality the core module has but does it effortlessly and without having to use language and template overrides.

This is a joy to use.

Phoca Favicon
I had a Joomla 1.5 site with a badly customized Yoo Theme template that was stubbornly refusing to display the favicon no matter what I did. (Just how long would you spend trying to sort something like this out?)

So I installed this, FTP-ed the image to the required folder and the plugin did the rest!

Thank you!
