Essential Joomla extensions?

 11:03 pm on Apr 2, 2008 (gmt 0)

I'm fairly new to playing around with joomla and was wondering what you all thought the must have's are for a joomla site?

Really it depends on the functionality you need for your website. I would recommend the "all in one seo" plugin. Also good are "backupwordpress", "google xml sitemaps" and "WP super cache"

Sorry I don't use joomla, but if you go to the extensions site (http://extensions.joomla.org) you can view the most popular and the top-ratd extensions.

I realized i gave you wordpress rather than Joomla. For joomla i use sh404sef, joompack, JCE admin, joomspan adsense clicksafe. Again it depends on what you want to do.

By default I use a stats extension, the html module (for ads) sh404sef and joomap or xmap(sitemaps)

Joomla stats extensions crash servers. Do some searching. They create HUGE database files very quickly - even on small sites.

For ad management, this is coming and definitely worth a look.


A plugin that allows you to manage your ad inventory through OpenX and get the benefits of that network.

Earn some proper dollars rather than Google charity (although you're still using Google).

the php module is also useful. and sh404sef is a must.
virtuemart for e-commerce and mosets for directories.

Can you tell us a little more of what you're looking to do with the site? When I look through the extensions there's something for everything it seems like

Right now I run a Joomla site that has 3 or 4 main extensions. And another 5 or so secondary still getting set up proper ones.

For directories instead of mosets there's also SOBI2 which is useful.
