The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

I've been using another shop extension in the past, more complex, but this time I needed something simpler, lighter, and that supports downloadable products out of the box. I've tried 4 different shop systems for Joomla and only the 4th fits those criterias - that's JoomShopping.
I've also received valuable help on their forum, especially today as I wanted to make a small modification to the payment process, and I got the solution within a few hours.

JASMIM - just another social media integration
W3C Valid... That's the word that caught my eye while I was looking for a module or plug-in to show social buttons.
At last, I've found one! This is exactly what I was desperately looking for. Thank you!

Dinamod Tab Modules
I've just tried this, because I was not satisfied of the way the top modules were looking on my forum - in the case of the forum I chose not to have any column in order to give it more space so I've put 3 modules on top of it, but these had different heights due to their content, which didn't look very nice. Well, Dinamod solved the problem in a quite elegant way! And it's been easy to set up, within minutes it was done.

CB User Custom Menu

I've given this a try by pure curiosity - and also I have to admit the original menu is quite ugly. Well, this one was rather easy to set up and looks nicer! It also outputs different options depending on whether you are on your own profile or someone else's (I was surprised at first not to see the connections option in my own profile, but then by going to another person's profile I saw a "Friend request" entry which is more user-friendly than the original term). I'm quite happy with it.

Once you understand how to use the numerous options, this module comes in really handy. It's quite easy really to simply list the AddThis services you want to use...

I was looking for a booking system for a client of mine that would allow her clients to request appointments. So basically this component would do just that - with a few HTML / CSS tweaking it'd be fine. The only problem I have with it is that it seems all the text is directly included inside the component, instead of using Joomla's language files.

I'd be more than happy to provide a French translation or maybe even change the strings myself only I've never done that I don't know how to do. If someone can explain it to me I'll do it. I've got a rather good level of PHP so if you tell me how to load a string from a language file I guess there should be no problem.

Hi OldLodgeSkins,

Thank you for the review.

I am currently working on a versions that will support internationalization using the standard JText libraries.

If you are happy to contribute a French translation drop me a line and I will send you the translation file.

If I had to give one weakness of j4age, it'd be that it does not actually log everything - it seems there's a small part of the activity that's sometimes missing, a click here and there that isn't logged.
Other than that, it's great and I'm quite happy with it. I can see precisely what my visitors are doing and what they seem to like, what parts of the site they visit and which ones they seem to ignore or maybe not see at all, and that's exactly what I was looking for.
