HTML Map Manager 2
I'm not sure why, but having been building Joomla sites for a few years, this is the first time I wanted to use an image map.
Thinking that image maps are such a basic building block of web design I looked for options - and there are very few. I looked at a couple before selecting this extension. It does everything it says on the box and then some. Incredibly simple to use.
I did have some jQuery issues - I'm using a RocketTemplate theme and there were some conflicts - but the amazing support sorted things out in a friendly and speedy manner (thanks, Ruth!).
The site is bilingual English/Spanish - so I was a little worried about this - needn't have been - it was a single drop down click in Falang!
Shame there are only five stars....

You know when you look at something and wonder if the name on the box is designed to lull you into a false sense of security? How you've bought one of those "Something for Idiots" books and still didn't understand it? This was kind of how I approached Easy Blog. Easy - yeah right - if you are an IT grad geek. But right out of the box it worked. I was set up and published in about 5 minutes - actually it was less - because that included writing my first blog post.
In no time at all I've integrated it into my twitter account - and tomorrow I'm going to look at how to get it working with facebook.

I had one tiny issue - there was a conflict with Artio SEF. I can tell you that, not because I figured it out - but because I sent a support ticket and got a reply - complete with a fix AND an explanation in about 2 hours (and - this made me smile - an apology for the delay in responding!)

I cannot rate the support highly enough and from what I can see on the back end - this extension will do everything I'm ever going to need and then some.

If you are looking at the options (and I have struggled with a couple of others in the past) you can simply stop looking. For once an extension that does exactly what it says on the box - Easy and Blog
