Simple RSS Feed Reader
All I wanted was to an RSS reader that would display the date of the posts. Incredibly, this is the only module I've found that does that. It has some good options and seems to be one of the best RSS readers available.

However, it came with two templates pre-installed, and you have to choose one of them. They don't match my site, so of course I want my site's template to dictate the style of the module, but that's not an option.

The only solution supplied is in the description above: "If you want more control, you can simply override both the generated HTML and CSS, using MVC template overrides within your Joomla! template." If someone can explain to me what that means, please do. I also don't understand why you can't just select "None" in the module's styling options.

BIGSHOT Google Analytics
Didn't work for me initially, so I emailed the folks at Bigshot, and I quickly got a reply saying I was missing the closing body tag in my template. Oops! So I corrected it, and Google Analytics immediately started collecting data. Thanks for the help! Fixed the plugin as well as my template.
Google Maps by Reumer
As other reviewers have said, this plugin is versatile, and Mike is ridiculously helpful and rad. Harnessing the power of Google is a big part of what makes modern websites good, and when it comes to maps, this plugin can almost certainly do more than you need it to.
