Easy Paypal
I do not undersatnd the few negative reviews of this extension complaining about the documentation. While it is not lengthy, it is more than adequate since this plug-in is very easy to use and requires only the obvious configuration. I have used both the 1.5 and 1.7 version and both work perfectly. You CAN--if you wish--specify a default configuration (perhaps you have only one PayPal button on your site) and in that case, you can invoke the plug-in simply by including it within brackets.
If you have multiple, different occurrences, you simply specify parameters within the brackets where you invoke the plug-in, just by simply including each relevant parameter and the appropriate value. It could hardly be simpler.
I wish every Joomla extension worked as well and was as clearly documented. Even if you need "spoon feeding" to set this up, the developer is very accessible and responds immediately by email.

Akeeba Backup
I use this extension for every site. It is essential if you ever move a site to another server. The capability -- new -- to backup sites remotely from any client and save the backup remotely anywhere is extremely convenient. I encountered a very obscure issue with windows task scheduler and received prompt, thorough, and accurate support assistance from Nicholas. Virtually alone among free extensions (not to mention paid ones) the documentation is phenomenal. Extremely thorough, detailed, and precise, with many examples. Not only that, even within the extension there are many links to the documentation, precisely at the point whjere your question arises. And although I recognize that the Joomla communittis very diverse and international, nonetheless it is very helpful for me personally to be able to converse with a developer whose English is perfect, especially as my Greek is non-existent!

I cannot recommend this extension highly enough.
