Automatic Articles, Data Import & Export, Mass Content, Content Construction, K2 extensions

Formerly known as the Excel Uploader. The Content Uploader will allow you to upload data from a spreadsheet directly into articles! This means that each row from your excel sheet will create one new article on your site. Website creators who want to populate a site quickly by importing existing articles, will find this particuarly useful as it eliminates a time consuming, manual process.

Sounds good, but not enough documentation to configure parameters.

Ease of use

The concept is good, but ease of use is very poor due to lack of support


Purchased this software almost 2 weeks ago. Only support I have received is a payment receipt.


Emailed twice for support and posted twice on the forum. Received no response.

I used this to: I wanted to use this to upload excel document and generate articles.

It Works fine!

Posted on 17 October 2016

I imported over 450 articles with Excel file (.xls) in minutes,
just works fine as said.

Ease of use

Takes a little time to understand all the settings.
I think it's need a better user interface.


Can be more specific for end users, it's more like a tech note now.
The hints popup in admin area says much more than formal Documentation.

I used this to: Import articles from non-joomla based content though hand-made excel files,
50 articles a time.


Brings in the articles fine but jumbles up the categories. Half of the Imported articles wound up in the WRONG categories.

Ease of use

Simple to use but categories do not import correctly.

Owner's reply: Hello Ringo,

Great time saver

This extension is a real time-saver when it comes to creating large amounts of articles. Setup is straight forward.

Ease of use

Setup takes a bit of time but once it's done you just select your Excel file and press upload. Couldn't be easier to created bulk articles.


Didn't require support for the free version. I switched to the pro version as I needed more features and support was superb.


There is a video on the website which explains how it works. Also every config option is explained with tooltips. Excellent!

I used this to: Product catalog

Saved me so much time!

Posted on 30 November 2012

This saved me so much time and the articles I uploaded as sheets helped my SEO rating so much, thanks for this great extension! Masterpiece of simplicity!

Great helper

Posted on 28 October 2012

Being a new Joomla! user trying to tackle uploading 200+ articles, this is a life saver. Really easy to use!

I have installed this free utility and uploaded 13000 articles (one liner) in one shot to add link for downloading of 13000 powerpoint shows from my site funppt.com and pptfree.com. Unimaginable. Manually, this would have taken 2 months. However, it may be noted that Word articles are uploaded as one paragraph without any paragraph break unless you add html tags before and after each paragraph in the word file.

Not enough documentation

Posted on 25 March 2010

Usually I will be very careful to write my comments, most of time I do not read documentation & figure out by itself how would this extension would work, because I have used hundreds of extension & soon wanted to publish a website which contain maximum extension used.

I am sure this extension would be simplest & easy to use, but I was unable to figure out, & try to read documentation which nothing explain except to setup “parameters” then spend a lot of time in Forum but there is not a single clue after uploading file (article) then { what next ? } Shell we use [ Syntax ] in (article) or will there be [ embedded ] button will show up ?

I will give suggestion like Peter van Westen (from nonumber) has published 12 extension and most of them are popular simply because he did not wrote long documentation but rather quite simple & easy word few images, steps by step like a guide to new joomla user, although most of his extension would be used for advance & at complex level & to make it easy & simple.

I will be glad to support and I am sure there is positional but it is frustrating and hidden yet.

Owner's reply: Hi Naseem,

I realise the documentation is pretty sparse just now and a similar remark to yours was made in our forum. As a result, there is now a document available on our site that explains what can be entered for each parameter. You can get it here:

There will also be a tutorial videos on the demo site in the next few days.

Fills a very important need

Posted on 27 December 2009

The lack of a mass import solution has been a major weakness of Joomla for quite some time. I have not had time to extensively test the extension, but it seems to be an answer to this problem. As somebody who uses excel alot, this is a godsend! The main thing that could use would is the documentation, there is not much right now.

A great component

Posted on 26 December 2009

This component has a big potential...really! (sorry for my english, I'm italian)

The autor should consider:

- adding an example excel file (call it a template, a starting point for new users)

- adding more detailed documentation

- the component should not strip out html tags that finds in the table fields (except from the first column=title).

You should consider also making a new component similar to this one, dedicated to joomfish: imagine the possibility to upload translations for a large number of articles at once!

I'm available to support this project by translating in italian

Broken images on a website make it look unprofessional and poorly maintained. They need to be fixed as soon as possible but how do you even know about them if you don't go through all your sites manually from time to time? Here is the solution. This plugin scans your website on each page load for broken images and sends out an email if it detects one. This allows you to fix your website as soon as possible and saves you the time to check all pages yourself.

J2Top creates a button that appears on the bottom-right (or -left) when you scroll down the page. Once clicked the page will scroll smoothly to the top of the page and the button will disappear. The look of the button is fully configurable from the backend, you can change the text, font-color, font-size, background images and much more. As of version 1.0.8 the button text can be translated in the plugin configuration or by using language files. Additionally we added an option to display the button also in the administrator interface. You can also define how much pixels must be scrolled down before the button appears, the time that the button needs to fade in and out and if the button should be transparent by setting the opacity between 0.1 and 1.
