The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

Can't help feeling this version was rushed out. Modules that shipped as standard in version are missing from v2. The interface feels clunkier and I find the back end harder to use.

The free extensions in vm1 grown over some years. A lot people like the new interface more and say it is faster, more intuitive to use, and cleaner. It is a matter of taste and habits.

Cookie Monster
Cookie Monster offers a simple and straight forward way to comply with the new EU (Nanny State) Cookie & Tracking Law. Its implementation is simple and you can select either a banner at the top of the page or to grey out the entire page.

I ran up against an issue while deploying Cookie Monster on a development site. We use a Slideshow script which was badly written in the days of JQuery 1.2.6 and conflicted with the newer jQuery used in cookie monster.

I contacted Mustaq Sheikh via their support forums and he has gone out of his way to help. They even ftp'd in and altered the sideshow script to make them work happily together.

These guys are an excellent example of how to do support right.
