The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

Works as advertised! Allows enhanced website presentation.

As downloaded, the font list was incomplete as Google continues to add new fonts I guess.

However, the associated files are trivial to edit to include any new Google web font that appears.

I like it!

Thanks for the great review!
The latest version now includes the full Google Font Directory (including Bold, Italic and Bold-Italic variations). As it is an ongoing project it is difficult to keep bang up to date but I aim to update on a month by month basis. However if you do spot any fonts that need adding please let me know.

Show Control Panel
I have been looking for something like this for some time. I get fed up with having to go to the Joomla drop-down menu every time to select the control panel. This admin module puts an icon on the menu bar.

An update for Joomla 1.5 native would be nice :-)

The module has now been updated to 1.5 Native

This is a very interesting module/extension with the ability to control module publication according to date and PHP scripting rules from within Metamod.

This gives very useful functionality to Joomla and makes it worth delving into PHP a little more to take full advantage of a well thought out extension.

I haven't found any bugs yet with limited testing.

The only things missing are to auto-unpublish Metamod if no modules are set to display and to auto publish a specific module if another named module expires, although this might be possible with PHP scripting.

Documentation is good, so you will have no trouble getting the extension up and running. The author has clearly put in a lot of time and thought into this.

Thank you for sharing this module.

This is a extension with a fairly steep leaning curve that repays you many times over for the time spent.

So far, I have been able to build a drop-down suckerfish menu (with a little help from my friends), child menus directly from other menus and section/category menu items all from the same extension.

This is a truly amazing extension that you only appreciate when you work with it.
