Key Features

Power Content does everything that other CCK extensions do, only much more, better and in a simpler manner.

  • Flexible Themes Engine: Create your own specific or shared layouts for every type of record. Add your own params, set custom fields and even edit code with an extremely easy GUI interface.

  • Powerful Custom Fields: The powerful custom fields engine providing you with over 15 built-in types of fields that are completely integrated with all of Power Content's records and features. Fields can be repeatable (making it extremely easy to extend your websites), and can appear on any type of record - Items, Categories, Authors, Tags and more.

  • Drag & Drop Media Manager: Completely integrated with the custom fields, Text Editors, and other parts of Power Content.

You can customize your URL's, add / change prefixes and more.

  • Extendable Plugins System & API: Extend Power Content forms, add tabs with your own forms to all records: items, categories, author and tags.

Legendary Performance

Power Content websites' performance is legendary fast. I have developed the exact same website with the exact same features and the same content and media both with Power Content and with another, one of the most popular CCK extension in Joomla (for privacy and respect, i won't include its name).

After modest optimization, the other CCK's website was loaded in 2.7 seconds while Power Content’s website was loaded in 0.8 seconds. Both tests happened on the exact same website, on the exact same host and terms, and from the exact same source. In Google Page Speed score, the site built with the other CCK scored 75 web and 71 mobile while Power Content's website scored 97 web and 90 mobile. The mentioned website is:, and you can test it yourself if you wish.

Built-In Modules and Plugins to Further Enhance Your Possibilities

In addition to all of Power Content's built-in features, you will get 13 modules and plugins, built-in with the installation of Power Content. Those extensions let you: display (and filter) Items, Categories, Authors, Tags and Comments wherever you want on your website (even outside of Power Content views). In addition, you will also get a Social Sharing plugin, Statistics plugin (Admin), Quick Actions plugin (Admin), Latest Comments Module (Admin), a Search Module (to display your search bars) and a Visual Debugging tool.

Abandoned project?

Posted on 20 December 2018
It works very well to build custom content.
Ease of use
Easy to configure and use
Although it is an excellent tool, it has some bugs and it seems an abandoned project, nobody answers by any means, unfortunately.
He needs to detail things.
I used this to: Custom content site
Really does it all. Using it constantly for many types of websites, didn't find its weaknesses just yet...
Ease of use
It's really easy to use back-end wise, but It's biggest selling point is how easy it is for developers to use.
Great, I have questions from time to time and the developer helps a lot by mail
Deep and coherent, not 100% updated though, I had to ask the developer about something that I couldn't find there, he updated it later on.
I used this to: Using it for every Joomla site I create...

best solution today

Posted on 24 January 2018
lots of possibilities, lots of extensions.. really like it
Ease of use
very easy, i think that this is the main reason i like it so much
asked a question, got a reply the same day
extremely clear, really great documentation
I used this to: i'm using power content for all of my business website's today
Offers much more than the basic Joomla, really good extension
Ease of use
Very intuitive, similar to K2 in that matter
The developer sent me an email after I downloaded asking if everything was fine, he was very responsive to my questions
lots of docs.. was easy to navigate there
I used this to: developing a travel blog
Still functions great with 3.7 along with the new update thankfully. Still SO MUCH better than K2.
Ease of use
Still working good
I was able to get ahold of the Erker Labs, and it was amazing direct support thanks to his FB group that sets the bar apart
With the new website, I kinda thought the images were missing before I wrote this review, but now the images are there, so a 100 for a score
I used this to: Downloads & Tutorials for a game.

I would say 10.

Ease of use

Very Detailed
I used this to: My clients as a Web Development Company

Muhteşem Bir Eklenti

Posted on 03 August 2017
İşlevsellik çok iyi derecede. Joomla! makale ve kategorileri K2 gibi aktarsa süper olur. Ayrıca yorum yapanın email adresi gizlenmesi gerek.
Ease of use
Kullanımı çok basit ayrıca Türkçe dili'de destekliyor. Tarafımızdan çevrilmiştir.
Destek çok iyi sosyal medya sayfaları ve diğer destek bağlantıları ile bilgi alabiliyorsunuz.
Belgeler çok açıklayıcı ve düzenli bir şekilde sıralanmış. Eminim kullanıcılar hiç zorluk çekmeden kurulumu ve ayarlarını yapabilecekler.
I used this to: ?irket web sitelerinde kullanmaya karar verdik. Gerçekten güzel çal??ma. Yap?mda ve eme?i geçen herkese te?ekkürler.
