ContentBuilder Plugin

Developer
Website
Compatibility
Joomla! 2.5 Series Joomla! 3.0 Ready
Submitted by: Nathan Hawks
Why do you love this Extension?
ContentBuilder occupies a space halfway between a simple forms manager, and a CRUD app scaffold/rapid app deployment toolkit. Those deploying Joomla can actually bypass learning to write their own extensions for a time, by implementing simpler solutions via ContentBuilder.

What does this Extension do to enhance your website?
ContentBuilder provides a way to create arbitrary data models, and publish them as standard Joomla articles. So, whatever you want - be it a video viewer, to-do-list app, or any case where you want standardized inputs piped into a Joomla article - if it could conceivably exist in the context of a Joomla article, you can use ContentBuilder to make inputting easier, and output more attractive and consistent.

What? Nothing! Plugin

Developer
Website
Compatibility
Joomla! 2.5 Series Joomla! 3.0 Ready
Submitted by: Chad Windnagle
Why do you love this Extension?
What? Nothing! allows me to add real value and functionality to my sites while literally doing nothing at all. There is raw power in simplicity here with that kind of absence in doing something. The developer obviously supports this extension and fixes bugs on a regular basis just to ensure that it continues to do nothing with the highest performance I've ever seen.

What does this Extension do to enhance your website?
This extension does absolutely nothing for my sites, which makes it exactly what all my sites need.
