Nomad is not login redirection, it's homepage redirection!!! Joomla gives you a single homepage - Nomad Pro gives as many as you need! Global, per-group or per-user - as many as you need. An administrator can make global redirect setting, per-group settings, and/or individual user settings. The plugin checks first for a user setting, then a group setting, then a global setting - redirecting on the first value it finds. If no global value is found, the user is sent to the normal homepage. Users who aren't logged in are not affected by this plugin, they see the normal homepage. There are no limits to the number of assignments you can make!

YSlow and Pagespeed look at Expires Headers when evaluating your site. This plugin allows an administrator to set global Expires, Cache-Control and Pragma headers, as well as individual settings (inclusive or exclusive) for particular menu items. Speed up your site by following the rules! Set short time-spans for pages that change frequently, and longer time-spans for pages that don't. Note: Expires Headers cannot alter the expires headers for content that was not processed through the Joomla framework. This includes CSS files, Images, Favicon files and others. These files can be addressed using htaccess rules. Visit the website link for more information and an example.

Record changes to user profile data. If you're like me, you have many sites to keep track of. You might even share that responsibility with other administrators. This extension is for you! I wrote this to put an end to finger pointing for some of the sites I manage. Who deleted that user? Who changed this password? Who disabled this account? NO MORE! Not only will you know who changed it, but exactly when and what they changed. The functionality isn't limited to admins, but users as well. When they manage their own profile data, those changes are logged as well. This plugin provides 100% visibility on all user profile field changes - even profile plugins this plugin doesn't know about! That's right! The methods used to track changes are extension agnostic. It doesn't matter where the change comes from, or what's being changed. If it's part of the user profile data, this plugin tracks it! Upon installation, you'll find 5 plugins total. The main plugin, a user plugin, manages and tracks the changes, while the profilehistory plugins manipulate and format data to be displayed better in the profile form. For example, the "password" plugin prevents password information from being stored, but leaves a breadcrumb to indicate who changed it and when. The "groups" plugin alters the output to provide actual group names when changed. This extension is itself extensible with plugins. Don't like the way your custom profile plugin data is displayed in Profile History? No problem, with a formatting plugin, that data can be as pretty as you like.  Features: Timestamped changes to all user account fields Stores the user making the change Supports all user profile plugins. Extendable to display custom profile fields differently. Retains data, even when a user is deleted (as well as who deleted the user)

Have you ever needed to access your site as one of your users? As User makes that task as simple as can be. Their username - your password. It really is that simple. With the As User plugin, a user in any group authorized in the plugin configuration is able to log into the site as almost any other user by using their own password. Of course, there is that caveat "almost any other user". The plugin protects against authorized users logging in as each other - for example, Admin-A cannot log in as Admin-B, because that would be a recipe for disaster. Forget the complicated alternatives with their crazy interfaces, you don't need them. You already know your own password, just type it.

The most advanced page top-button plugin available for Joomla! "Return to Top" links do nothing for SEO and can even detract from it, and they can clutter your page. When you have a very long page, how do you decide where to put them? Do you need more than one? Are they visible when the user is already at the top of the page? Top of the Page removes these concerns by creating a "Return to Top" link when the page has been scrolled by a certain (configurable) designated distance. When the page is scrolled back to the top (above the configured distance), the link disappears. If your page is short and users can't scroll down, the link will never be visible. Your button can be text or images and as of version 2.0, can include an icon using your own icon-fonts - stylable in the plugin configuration, so you're not limited to any included images. The text is set using standard Joomla translation files, and can be overridden using the Joomla Language Manager (instructions included).

Finally, a captcha you can't read...wait...that's not what I meant... This is the captcha you don't even need to see. Everyone knows the annoyance caused by captchas that are unreadable. HashCash is a different kind of validation. Unlike other captcha solutions, HashCash doesn't rely on 3rd party services or resources - and it doesn't require anything from your users other than a JavaScript enabled browser. No mangled words to decipher, no math problems to solve, no photos to match - nothing but arrival on a form page. Originally proposed by Adam Beck in 1997, HashCash requires a form to include the solution to a complex calculation. The calculation is so complex (it takes hundreds or even thousands of attempts to solve it) that any human or bot attempting to abuse your forms will spend so much processor time solving the calculation that it wouldn't be profitable to continue attacking your forms! The server receives the result and can easily and quickly test it in 1 calculation - either it's right and your user continues or it's wrong and the form submission fails. The best part is, HashCash is invisible (you can't read it - or even see it) and it happens in the background without user interaction! Your users arrive at the form and the HashCash calculation is automatically executed. Any bot attempting to submit your form without completing the calculation is rejected, and the calculation changes every time the form is submitted. Configuration is simple. Open the plugin and choose the difficulty level. The predefined minimum (1) and maximum (4) levels prevent calculations that are too simple or too difficult to complete in an acceptable amount of time.

The problem with Do Not Track is that site owners and services ignore it. Be part of the solution - implement Do Not Track and make the web a better place. For those who don't know what Do Not Track is all about, please refer to this site: http://donottrack.us/ This plugin detects the Do Not Track browser setting and adds or removes a Joomla Access Level based on that setting. Components, Modules and Plugins which set tracking cookies can then be added to that access level. Implementing this successfully will take planning and configuration. THIS IS NOT A PLUG-AND-PLAY EXTENSION! An administrator creates a Do Not Track - Opt-In group and access level, and assigns that level within the plugin configuration. When a user arrives with Do Not Track turned OFF - the access level is added to the user and any components, modules or plugins that are assigned to that access level are allowed to run. When the user turns Do Not Track ON - that access level is removed from the user and those components, modules and plugins are not allowed to run. Step-by-step instructions are provided on the download page. You can respect the wishes of your users and make the web a better place if you really want to. The Do Not Track plugin can help.

Based on the wildly popular CatchMyFame.com Before/After jQuery plugin, the Joomla Before/After plugin provides 100% of the functionality in a non-commercial content plugin. Use it anywhere you want, as many times as you want. In articles, category descriptions, modules - anywhere Joomla processes content plugins. Note: The CatchMyFame.com Before/After jQuery plugin is released under the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license. If using this plugin on a commercial site, a license must be purchased from CatchMyFame.com. Several other paid extensions in this category use the same CC licensed javascript - and even though you pay for the Joomla extension, you still have to license it for commercial use with CatchMyFame.com. The plugin provides default settings, plus the article author can override each of the default settings in the image wrapper using data attributes. Full instructions are in the plugin configuration page. Additionally, I've implemented the Touch-Punch plugin, so this works on touch devices such as iPad, iPhone and Android tablets and phones. I wrote this on commission, and my client waived his option for copyright because he believed as I do - that this plugin will benefit the Joomla community. Anyone who is familiar with me or my extensions knows that I love free. Update 1.2 - fix coding error which affected starting position Update 1.3 - fix javascript error where Joomla.JText is missing the "_" function on some sites.

Are your server error logs hard or impossible to retrieve? Do you even know how to get them? Loggie can help! If your host is anything like mine, your log files are hard to get to. When they are available, they're slow to retrieve. In my case, it takes 5 minutes or more for a log to appear in the log file - and I must download it repeatedly looking for the errors I'm trying to find. Loggie is a system plugin that captures those errors destined for the PHP error log file. These errors are deposited into a database table and displayed within the plugin "Logs" tab. No more searching for log files, sifting through them, begging your host to get current logs - Loggie cuts out the middle man. Usage is simple. When you need to capture the logs for fast review - enable the plugin. It's that simple. The only other option is to clear the Loggie Logs table, which triggers the plugin to return all of the logs to their original destination. Warnings: Loggie is for temporary use only. Extended use can and likely will fill your database. Loggie inserts a warning on every page while it is enabled - reminding administrators that it is enabled and should be disabled ASAP. I will not answer questions asking how to disable the warning message. When you're knowledgeable enough to figure out how to disable the message, you'll understand why you should disable the plugin instead.

Insert any JavaScript/CSS/Any tag into the document head based on ItemID (menu item) or by using the content plugin tag options. Similar plugins exist, but they are either limited in scope, or have terrible configuration interfaces. HeadTag aims to be an all-in-one solution to provide the ability to add the following types of tags to the document - JavaScript source files JavaScript Declarations Linked StyleSheet (CSS) files Style Declarations Custom tags (of any type) The plugin can be used in two ways: 1. By using the plugin configuration to designate tags to be inserted by specific menu item, access level, or user group. 2. By plugin tags inserted into content items, descriptions or modules (which process content plugins). Version 2.5 users - the 3.0 version is not an upgrade! Upgrading requires you to re-enter your rules or you will lose them upon saving the new version for the first time on your site.

Sliding panels are nice, but have been restrictive and difficult - until now! Top and bottom tabbed sliding module panels done right with NicePanel. NicePanel provides an administrator the ability to create as many top and/or bottom sliding panel tabs as (s)he wishes. Here are the features: -Separate top/bottom panel configurations -Automatic tabs - based on the module title Preserves Javascript events (unlike some other panels) -Independent left/right tab alignment Independent tab styles -Tab content honors Joomla ACL Here's how it works - First, take the modules that you wish to be presented as tab panels, and assign them to a new module position (you can just type it into the module configuration). For simplicity, I'm going to call the new positions "nicepaneltop" and "nicepanelbottom" - but in reality, you can name them anything you want. The module order will be the tab order (if using right tab alignment, the tab order is reversed) Then, in NicePanel configuration, set the module position to be presented in the top and bottom panel positions. Save it. You're done. Panels with no pain. I've added the ability for an administrator to use the CSS textarea applied by the plugin, or to turn off the styling portion so the panels can be styled using the template stylesheet. NicePanel is light - no additional JS frameworks required - NicePanel is pure MooTools. Version 1.13 - Joomla 3.0 compatibility update Version 1.14 - hides the panel when the site is offline unless a user is logged in Version 1.15 adds options to hide the panel on chosen templates, and for mobile devices (phone, tablet or phone & tablet) All of my extensions are free and none of my extensions display advertisements or links to my sites or services.

Tired of seeing ::cck:: in your Joomla RSS and ATOM feeds? SEBLODFeed will process your SEBLOD tags in your feeds just like you see them in your site. Sponsored by Jeremy Goimard, this extension scans your feed output and replaces the SEBLOD tags with your SEBLOD content. If you see Jeremy in the forums, and you use this plugin - be sure to thank him for commissioning its creation. Jeremy thinks it should be called "SEBLOD wonderful Feed". You can be the judge. Note, this plugin only works with the Joomla native RSS and ATOM feed output. 3rd party feed generators are not supported. Version 2.1 fixes a non-fatal pass-by-reference error. If you didn't notice the error, you don't need the update. Version 2.3 adds Joomla 3.x compatibility and some optimization. Thanks for reporting the compatibility issue Kyle!

Comply with the EU e-Privacy law (AKA the EU Cookie Law)! Block all cookies until the user has accepted them - Session, Language, even 3rd party cookies and cookies set by JavaScript! Those are some big claims, so I must explain that there are some caveats. 3rd party cookie blocking requires PHP 5.3 and the PHP Reflection Classes. Blocking cookies set by JavaScript requires IE8 or greater, FireFox, Chrome or Opera (probably other modern browsers as well). This plugin can prevent 3rd party cookies, but cannot remove them once they're set (due to the Javascript same-origin restriction). This plugin and module combination aims to be the final solution to the EU cookie requirements. This plugin overrides and prevents any cookies sent by Joomla, and any JavaScript cookies from being set until the user accepts them. Many of the other extensions here in the JED don't block cookies at all - or they allow the cookies to be set and then immediately unset them with JavaScript (which is cheating and will fail when JS is disabled). New in version 2.0 - Most of these additions are the result of user requests: - 5 methods for display: Message, JS Confirm, Module, Modal or Ribbon. - 1 method to just remove and prevent cookies. - Option to decline - which shows a minimal message allowing users to reconsider. - Option to remove cookies after they've been accepted. - Option to display only to users visiting from EU countries. - Option to log users who have accepted cookies (persuant to laws in certain EU countries) - Option to block 3rd party cookies (requires PHP 5.3) - Option to customize or omit the CSS style for certain output methods. - 87% more awesome, bringing the total amount of awesome to 187%. Update 1.8 - Joomla 1.5 long-term cookie test revised. Update 2.6 - resolved bug in module when geoplugin enabled. Update 2.7 - resolves issue with non-html pages Update 2.8 - resolves an issue that prevented the javascript from loading in certain circumstances. Update 2.9 - removed code that disabled geoplugin which was added for local testing Update 2.10 - repaired bug on cookie checker code Update 2.11 - fixes javascript load order issue Update 2.13 - Add Joomla 3.x compatibility and jQuery/Mootools framework option. Update 2.14 - logging bugfix - if you use logging - definitely upgrade! Joomla 1.5 users - please be patient. I am still backporting the J2.5 version!
