Improve My City
Improve my city is an impressive extension with the ability to list an address, phone number, picture and more on an interactive Google map. The Improve my City engine can be modified to fit your mobile businesses, listing and auction sites, your organization-team events or you can use it to report issues in your city. This worked out of the box for me and so simple figure out! Brilliant. 6 stars!

JFBConnect
really this extension just paid for itself in the time saved in just the coding of the auto connection/register to facebook alone and too much of a chore to code by hand. thanks to the sourcecode team for the really insane amount of traffic and new users i am receiving due to the page/canvas and auto register... its truly a MIRACLE. i am denNISI and i approve this component! xx den
SocComments
tried several other comment systems on here... possibly all of them and none was as simple and well explained as the soccomments extension! works on 1.73 and it explains with simple easy pictograms on the website - how to get your facebook and vkontakte app ids. you can even choose the dark facebook comment stream and in what order. thank you for your mastery and keeping it open source! xx denNISI

GAnalytics
i was reluctant after a few trolls on here to download, but on 1.73 it works better than fantastic! hell, i think it works better than their website because it has just what i need RIGHT on the Ganalytics dash! wow, i am so happy about this extension because it is takes GOOGLE analytics, an already exceptional tool, and integrates it seamlessly into joomla. it was too simple to install - install, configure, put in your google acct access and add your profiles. add tracking code or use their plugin and then stats automatically appear for each or all of your sites on one site. thank you, GJ4 team, for your brilliance and generosity. most of all, thank you for your gift of open source. xx denNISI

JCE
out of all the editors i have tried, the JCE editor is by far the best. as a matter of fact, many editors that i have tried lack BASIC needs of an editor except for JCE: MUST HAVE a way to block the image folder on your server, MUST HAVE a code editor not a crappy html window, must not SCREW up my code that is already in place and add random characters, MUST HAVE a nice looking editor with customization options and finally, MUST HAVE no conflicts with most components. JCE is it. out of the box, overly simple, nice looking, and WORKS... thank you JCE for your gem of open source. xx den
JoomGallery
i want to personally commend the joomgallery team for the best extension for a gallery on joomla. integrates seamlessly into templates. the component is extremely light and offers way too many options and views... for free. here is a quick step by step guide:

1. install component using joomla's extension manager.
2. configure endless options and the directories for images next in the component's configuration.
3. link the gallery
4. create a category
5. upload an image

and bam. there it is... bitte sehr dream team!

this is my NEW favorite extension. absolutely incredible developing bypasses the login because a user creates a new ad on the front end with a separate email and password to edit ad. therefore kiddies, this DOES WORK with community builder 1.2 latest and i imagine ANY COMPONENT even if it uses login! it also works beautifully in joomla 1.7x!! oh and this free classified extension is quite possibly the best SIMPLE classified solution you have ever used - not to mention a simple and light component. i did have to turn off avatar sampling because my photos werent showing at first and animated gifs dont stay animated but i imagine this is doable with imagemagick. i just cant believe this. it is not to good to be true... its just really good! thank you and i will consider the commercial version if all remains well but free rocks too! xx den

Kunena Discuss
here are step by step instructions how to set up this plugin:

1. install or upgrade to 1.7 kunena if possible
2. create a new category for every category for joomla articles just for the comments. ex - i have the following categories design 1 art 2 music 3 net 4 site 5 for my articles. so to have comments for all my article categories, i created categories in kunena discuss and used the mapping feature in the discuss plugin parameter settings. i created design feedback 6 art feedback 7 music feedback 8 net feedback 9 and site feedback 10. my mapping field looks like this: 5,10;1,6;2,7;3,8;4,9
3. YOU MUST PUBLISH THE COMMENT FORUMS in kunena or you will get a -load- you do not have permission even if you are a superdooper user!
4. here is how to fill out the rest:
Limit Posts - enter how many posts you want to see.
how you want your posts to behave:

normally i dont express my undying love for a developer in my reviews - but bernard saulme is a GENIUS and words cannot express the gratitude i feel for this incredible piece of work. i now have a community that is able to create their own free webpage for FREE!! you need this extension. it is a one click install, xhtml valid, seamless with communities like CB with NO BLOAT! just a simply amazing extension. thank you bernard saulme - thank you for all your magic.

AlphaUserPoints
i named this the gold extension for a reason because this little bundle of files can give you the power to unleash a full point or monetary exchange system on your website! can you say cha-ching?! so i have tried alphaplug's alpha user points with a clean 1.63 and a clean install of 1.7 and 1.71 with the latest cb and kunena installed. i did have trouble installing the component part of this extension to my addon domain. my php was increased past limit, tried uploading using url and ftp to the addon domain, permissions checked, more than 6000 files allowed and many hack attempts... the SOLUTION? i was able to upload the component with an easy work around: for some reason you cannot upload this component to the website you are putting it on - you have to upload it to a website temp folder of another website and put in the complete url of that temp folder in the upload extension section of the joomla ext manager and download it to the website you want it. my steps - i wanted AUP on my addon domain so i just ftped the com_aup to my top tier domain (different website domain name), went into my addon domain joomla ext manager and uploaded with the urltomytoptierwebsite.com/tmp/com_aup.zip (install from url).

DO NOT PASS THIS UP! this beauty is seamless with kunena (of course), jsoc and even CB! what can this do for your community? it gives you the power to create your own community currency or exchange system on your site. you can reward people for adding content to your website or encouraging others to so. however the brilliance of this extension really is in the development - the alphaplug developer(s) have got to be on top of their game to keep this compatible with three or major extensions at the SAME TIME! especially with the myriad of settings that cause problems in kunena for example. for one, you cannot use AUTO DETECT in kunena - alphaplug cannot get a dynamic out of an already dynamic url. you have to set all the kunena detections to your community component - ie cb or jomsocial from the dropdown instead of auto detect. but really, if you are smart you will do whatever you can to download this and harness its great power to make your community rich with rewards!! thank you alphaplug developers for this FREE gold extension!! xx den

Community Builder
installed on the following - clean 1.57, clean 1.63-1.7 and a fresh install of 1.7 all separate. the report? perfect every time. when rating, i also keep in mind that there is no way COMMUNITY BUILDER can integrate and test every template, every version with specific extensions installed in every language. that is why they are forced to rely on feedback from people like us with basic coding skills and a genuine heart for opensource. this is a smart business move on COMMUNITY BUILDERs part and the fastest way to extension perfection. as for the juicy details of this exceptional extension? all the templates installed are just a simple border color change and tab style which do nothing for the integration of the component into the template. the templates are more than likely thrown together to give you a general idea where things are gonna go. so if you have no css/html skills, expect to shell out for developer exclusivity or the add-on COMMUNITY BUILDER extensions that install with one click like magic. if you have some programming and coding knowledge, you will get the most out of this extension FOR FREE and those people are the ones that appreciate COMMUNITY BUILDER and all the add-on plugins that come along. thank you CB, for keeping this opensource and beautiful! xx den

Flexi Custom Code
this should be standard on future versions of joomla. seamless install and xhtml valid with options to clean javascript, php, css and html. works beautifully in 1.6!! thank you so very much for this extension! i am a hardcore technicore fan now!
Custom Page Navigation
thank you very much for this 1.6 extension but unfortunately, this is not XHTML valid out of the box. however with a ridiculously simple noob edit, this eMAX plugin is the best load navigation with a tag in content i have found so far. here is the simple edit:

/plugins/content/custompagenavigation/custompagenavigation.php

delete this line:

echo '';

and copy the contents of:

/plugins/content/custompagenavigation/style/style.css

and paste into your template/css/style.css or whatever folder your page css style is in.

example code i use in my template:

the prev and next are listed on two separate rows and i want them inline:

ul.pagenav li {line-height:32px; display: inline; text-align: center;}
.pagenav-prev {line-height: 32px;}
.pagenav-next {line-height: 32px; float: right;}
.pagenav-prev img {width:32px; height:32px; vertical-align:middle; padding-right:5px;}
.pagenav-next img {width:32px; height:32px; vertical-align:middle; padding-left:5px; float: right;}
.pagenav-prev span {}
.pagenav-next span {}
.pagenavigation_credits {text-decoration:none;}

navigation shows up with style where i put the content plugin tag {loadnavigation}!

i especially like the prev next icons images included in this plugin! thanks!

ScriptsDown
why is this plugin not standard on joomla? also the compatible 1.6 extension is only available on richeyweb.com with other - should not be free but are - extensions for joomla. thank you! you are an exceptional developer!
Owner's reply

My extensions are free because of all the other great free extensions for Joomla, and because Joomla itself is free. It's a "thank you" of sorts to all the other great developers out there.

And thank you for your kind words and great review!

GTranslate
if you want a clean and simple translation module for joomla 1.6 this is it! squeaky clean valid code too! another creation that should be standard in 1.7!

Facebook Comments Plugin
simply add a {fcomment} tag in an article anywhere you want the popular facebook comment widget. no need to create a facebook app and messing with id keys and codes, this works straight out of the box and you can even set the width.

to the developer(s) - thank you very much for this absolute MUST download for an easy way to add facebook comments inside your content articles.

mark my words - this facebook comment plugin and possibly even the facebook like button plugin from this developer WILL be the top download because it is one of the easiest ways to get lots of traffic with facebook free with a few clicks!

Admin Bar Unlocker
this is a classic example of a developer that sees a design flaw and creates a simple open source plugin that nails it down and works flawlessly.

with admin blocker - i can now click save or apply and i am still able to access the top menu!

thank you so very much! xx denNISI
