The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™


An enormous programme that is challenging to use, yet no other extension can compare.

I struggled to install it, to use the extension directory (which could be much better organized) and to customize it. I wanted to use it for a book store, and only found one theme that could accommodate books. However it was a commercial theme and didn't look so good, so I ended up just using the default theme.

Despite all its faults, other extensions pale in comparison. So I used it for my site anyway.

This great extension delivers on its promises. I was able to configure it within minutes, and customize it to my client's needs perfectly.

I contacted support when I got stuck (as a result of my own inexperience - it was my first Joomla website - not the fault of the extension) and the support was incredible. Personal, informative and very helpful. Five star rating for that.

I was looking for a good way to include downloads but restrict access on some of them. As my site was the first website I ever built, I needed something I could understand too. jDownloads met my needs perfectly.

Loses one star because it failed a bit under the load of many documents, but I was testing the boundaries and it didn't affect the usability of the site.

A very good plug-and-play extension. The picture based captcha adds a sense of fun that my website needed.
