Akeeba Backup
If there was a Nobel Prize for Joomla extensions, this one would surely win!!

I've used Akeeba Backup for years on every single Joomla site I've built and it has never failed me once! If you're not sure whether or not to install this, LISTEN TO ME VERY CAREFULLY: THIS EXTENSION WILL SAVE YOUR HIDE!

I do not think there is another extension anywhere that will make you a HERO to your clients like this one! I would give Nicholas and company 10 stars if I could!

A full restore takes me less than 3 minutes and you can even have your backups sent to another server (take that you silly hackers!!) I've had clients severely mess up their site and I could restore it to how it was this morning in less time than it takes to even begin to figure out how to undo what they did! I've been hit by hackers (thanks to a exploit in another extension) and in no time the site was restored!

Please, do yourself a favor and install this extension and then send the guys at Akeeba some money! They truly deserve it!

I was creating a different hero image for every page using the custom HTML module when I found this. Really nicely built and super easy to understand, configure and use. I had it up and running on my site literally in 2 minutes! It's the perfect solution I was hoping to find... Bravo!

Xpert Tweets
Very nice, simple and clean module. Easy to set up. I'm deducting 1/2 point because there's no way to enable a "Follow Me" link. Nice that they included a field for "Module Class Suffix"... some other modules I tried did not.

If you're looking for a very simple Twitter feed display module without a bunch of styling (so you can style it YOUR way), check this one out for sure!

JV Chart
This may be a great plugin, but I can't figure out how to make it do anything... and I am NOT a Joomla newbie...

Absolutely zero documentation and no contact link on the developer's site. There's only a picture of some graphs.

Simple Image Gallery
I've used SIG and SIGPro for years. It's my "go to" photo gallery plugin! Installation and usage are a snap! The syntax for customizing displays is easy to understand and well thought out.

I've built hundreds of Joomla! websites over the years and the guys at JoomlaWorks consistently produce top quality stuff. The freebies are great, and the "pro" extensions are well worth the asking price. Whenever I've had an issue (usually with customization) the forums are active and a huge help. 5 stars!!

DB Replacer
The guys at are truly incredible! This is yet another example of their fine work. Not only does this component find and replace for you, but it has a really cool interface that takes any anxiety about making a change db-wide. 5 stars!

Global News
This module should be integrated into the Joomla! core!! This module gives you MUCH greater flexibility on how you handle "latest news" items on your pages. 4.5 stars!!

The only complaint I have is that there seems to be no way to modify the position of the date (I want it on top of the title). But heck, that's minor! I only deducted half a star!
Owner's reply

Hi! That is possible now, since the 1.3.1 version.
