The Most Powerful, Flexible and Easy-to-use Content Extension for Joomla!

Power Content aims to be the most Powerful, Flexible, and Easy-to-use Content Extension available for Joomla. It has been developed as a personal contribution to the * AMAZING * community of Joomla, and in order to help users take their websites to the next level. Power Content has no competition in terms of possibilities, features, flexibility, simplicity and performance.

Because Power Content is a personal contribution, it is completely FREE, and will always stay free. In addition, the project is extremely active and 100% supported, new features are being added every month. Power Content is also HIGHLY documented (definitely the most documented content extension -, with a wide range of documentation levels. Developers can find code examples and API explanations, while clients and webmasters can find every possible feature, function or option this awesome system has to offer.

Key Features

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

  • Powerful & Flexible Themes Engine - Create your own specific and / or shared layouts for every type of record, as well as your own parameters, with an extremely easy GUI interface.

  • Diverse Content Fields (Custom / Extra Fields) - Extremely powerful custom fields engine providing you with over 15 built-in types of fields that are completely integrated with Power Content in all manners. 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. The media manager lets you manage, sort, add, delete, change, preview and more, extremely easily and productively, directly from your editing pages.

  • Built-In Powerful Search Engine - Supporting advanced filtering for your items, allow "Live" search with AJAX technology.

  • Multiple Categories For a Single Item - We can finally assign a single item to as many categories as we want!

  • Many-to-many tagging system - Better, more flexible and far more powerful than anything you've seen before.

  • Unlimited Nested Categories - Create endless sub categories and structure your website however you want.

  • Extremely Easy SEO Management - Not only does Power Content have a dedicated admin view for SEO, where you can see and edit your whole websites titles, descriptions, robots, OG:IMAGE and more, It also has an Automatic SEO feature to make SEO Management much more easier, as well as a dedicated Custom Field to insert Head Tags such as Canonical, Analytics, Facebook Pixel and more, directly to all / specific pages - without any coding.

  • 3 Types of Pagination Systems - Standard (arrows and numbers), Load More Button and Infinite Scroll (like Facebook) features.

  • Perfect Routing Engine - Finally a solution to the Joomla routing engine! No more duplicated pages, no more surprising 404 errors. And perhaps the most helpful feature of Power Content's Router: We finally don't need to open a menu item for each and every little page we want to display on our website!

  • API For Developers - Powerful methods, classes and traits designed specifically to help developers enhance the core features of Power Content.

  • Extendable Plugins System & Plugins API - Extend Power Content forms, add tabs with your own forms to Power Content. Extend * ANY PART * of Power Content with more than 10 events available.

  • Live Comments Engine - AJAX live commenting system with deep spam filtering features, as well as Google's 'I'm not a bot' CAPTCHA. The commenting system that allows commenting replies! You can finally let your users actually discuss rather than simply comment. In addition, you can choose to receive notifications when a user comments on your items.

  • Highly Enhanced and Easy-to-use Text Editor - A super powerful built-in text editor which is also extremely simple and easy-to-use. Completely integrated with Power Content's Media Manager and Links Manager. Built-In features to embed videos (Visually) from YouTube, Vimeo and other sources, as well as loading modules directly in the text editor. And on top of all that - the text editor will CLEAN your content when pasting from external sources like other websites or Word documents allowing your websites to keep their format, and preventing your clients from ruining your hard work!

  • Complete Pages Preview - A complete Preview solution, allowing you to see the * Entire Page * before you publish it.

And a LOT (A WHOLE LOT) more awesome features and possibilities that are just waiting to be used!

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 100 web and 98 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 also 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.

Power Content's Future & Upcoming Features

As i mentioned above, Power Content aims to be the most Powerful, Flexible and Easy-to-use Content Extension for Joomla. And in order to achieve this "bold" goal, I constantly re-factor, crush bugs and add new features to the system. If you have any feature requests or if you have encountered a bug, simply report it to me and I'll take care of it.

Planned Features & Extensions:

  • Live page building and editing directly from the front-end (WIX Style).
  • Quick AJAX fields editing from list views in admin.
  • E-Commerce - a complete E-Commerce solution based on Power Content.

the best CCK for Joomla!

Posted on 21 December 2016

הרכיב ממש מקיף מכיל המון אפשרויות שממש היו חסרות בג'ומלה או שהיה צריך להוסיף מספר רב של תוספים.

Ease of use

הרכיב מתאים לכל סוגי המשתמשים במערכת (מתחילים או מנוסים).
הייתרון הגדול הוא באיגוד כל הצרכים לכדי רכיב אחד בלבד!


לא יצא לי לבדוק לגבי הרכיב הספציפי אבל המפתח איש מדהים שעוזר בכל תחומי הג'ומלה.


לאחר קריאה של המסמכים התבהרו כל סימני השאלה שהיו בהתחלה.
כפי שדיברנו הייתי ממליץ על הכנת סרטוני הדרכה.

I used this to: ??? ????.
???? ???!!!!!!!


Excellent, has lots of features and options

Ease of use

It's a fairly big extension with huge amount of options and yet very easy and intuitive to use


Didn't need, things just work


Crazy. There are like 30 or so pages of manual instructions...

I used this to: Developing websites for my clients. Using Power Content for a couple of month from when it was in Beta.
