JoomlaShack just posted their top 10 extensions in the poll they were doing.
I have to say, I agree with most of them.
- Virtuemart – one of the full featured cart systems for Joomla.
- Joomlapack – the way to backup. I am going to have give this one another try. When I had a joomla site on godaddy joomlapack just didn’t work. Now that I have left godaddy, maybe it will.
- JCE – everyone needs a good editor.
- Kenena – this is a forum previously called, fireboard, taken over by a new group. Debate is still out. I haven’t been overly impressed with joomla forums. Either fireboard or agora. PHPBB3 is my favorite with a bridge.
- Community Builder – I have used it and it just seems old and clunky.
- JomSocial – Its a great start and feels more modern than Community Builder. Definitely want a few more features here and the developers are very active and adding them.
- sh404SEF – Required for a site although it sometimes make me want to pull my hair out.
- Phoca Photo Gallery & JCal Pro – haven’t tried either.. Although I love joomgallery.
- Docman – very nice document download system
It didn’t make the top 10 but was runner-up. but it is a necessary extension for a joomla site:
