JMod TweetDisplay
I've been through quite a few social modules, and for Twitter, this one is tough to top. Super clear instructions for getting your Twitter developer app made this very easy. I was up and running in about 2 mins. Great work!

ITPSharePoint
This is a good plugin for a variety of components and modules, not just standard Joomla articles. I've applied it to K2 items with great success. Users who click the Share button can post K2 Items including the image that's been uploaded with the K2 Item.

Easy to use, just configure the plugin with the buttons you want, add the {itpsharepoint} in the text of your component or custom HTML module, and it's there. Surrounding it with a simple DIV tag with a float:right style makes it a little neater.

It also includes the new Google Plus One, which is why I tried this plugin in the first place.

Nice work!

K2
I've now used K2 on several websites of differing size and application. Even if you want to have both standard Joomla articles AND K2 items, it works great!

If you're over having to make Sections and Categories for items that would just suit one category, or you want to have nested categories (categories inside categories inside more categories) then this is the core upgrade for you.

There are stacks of K2 plugins available, like Autotweet NG for K2, JComments for K2, Kunena and K2 User integration etc. The only one I really struggled with was Jomsocial, but in the end I found the plugins I needed.

Highly recommend!

DM Articles Filter
This is the only component for letting website visitors search and display articles in a list format by searching Meta Keyword contents. Believe me, I looked for a long time.

Support with this component was excellent. Had some small cross-browser compatibility issues which were fixed very quickly, and email response time was very fast!

Google Maps by Reumer
This plugin is excellent. Super customisable and very professional. Don't be fooled when you see the {code}, it's pretty simple to nut it out, and the documentation resources are short and sweet, making utilising this little beauty quick and easy.

Support is FIVE STAR as well. I had troubles with cross browser compatibility; Firefox 3.5.X worked by IE7, IE8 and Safari on PC and Mac didn't. So after looking through the Checklist at http://tech.reumer.net/Google-Maps/Documentation-of-plugin-Googlemap/Checklist-placing-plugin-in-article.html and not finding the right solution (my Javascript knowledge is pretty minimal) I shot an email to Mike in the Nederlands (I'm in Australia), and overnight he sent me the solution.

If you're having trouble with cross-browser/platform compatibility like I was, my solution was to switch the "Load with Mootools?" parameter from Mootools to Timeinterval. Hope this helps some of you.

Again, thanks Mike! This plugin will be a regular addition to our websites! Highly recommend this bad boy!
