JU Slideshow
I cannot rate this slideshow high enough. It is a small fee but its so versatile, its amazing. I have used this slideshow on a bar website that really gives the whole page a much needed wow factor.

However, I would love to use this slideshow for another website and am a bit unsure if this extension is single licence or can be used on more than one site. Terms & conditions on the site are unlinked.

The software itself is easy to set up and there are great options to style the boxes, hold them horizontally and vertically, etc.

I am using this software for 2 separate categories listed on our website which the software couldn't do, but Luca was so helpful in guiding me how to accomplish this and when I got a bit lost (PHP isn't my thing), Luca was kind enough to help me (and I know I can be a pain).

very well recommended, will defintiely use again. Keep up the good work, Luca!

SP Thumbnail
I had traled through all the iamge directories looking for a simple configuration image that I could use for images within an article.

I eventually found SP thumbnail which is exactly what I am looking for. Word of warning though: you do have to register before downloading. Once you have registered, go away and do something else for about 10 minutes, because the login isn't immediate.

I like this plugin because you can set up a class for any image you would like to resize. This makes it ideal for people who can't/don't want to trawl through loads of code.

Art Wijmo Menu
I opted for the beez20 template for my website and learned (to my horror!) that there was some sort of bug resulting in the dropdown menu working. I tried to install many different menu modules and none of these seemed to work either.

I then got this module recommended to me and yes again it didn't work to start with, but after emailing the support team (there is a forum and twitter also available), they have efficiently answered my emails back, gone through my coding extensively and found what was causing the problem within about a day.

For all of that, I cannot recommend this module enough. I hope that when some other poor soul types in beez20 menu bug in search, the solution pops up straight away. It will save a lot of heartache.

Thanks guys!

Akeeba Backup
I am a bit of a newbie and have had to reinstall Joomla (long story) but this software takes no time at all to setup and it is so effective.

If i was going to offer any constructive criticism that would be the structure of the download list (I first accidentally downloaded a beta of something else), but once I knew what I was looking for it was pretty straightforward. Nice one!
