Akeeba Admin Tools is a must-have extension on all of the sites we maintain.

Update Joomla! easily, perform common administration tasks swiftly and enhance your site's security with the most comprehensive tool.

Admin Tools is available in two editions, Core and Professional. Admin Tools Core is our fully functional version, with some higher-end security features missing, available free of charge. Admin Tools Professional is the real deal, available only to subscribers.

Akeeba Backup is another must-have extension we install in all of the Joomla! websites we build.  

It allows us to perform a full database and website backup in one convenient package.  The file can be easily unpacked and the entire site restored. 

Akeeba Backup is available in two editions, Core and Professional. Akeeba Backup Core is the fully functional version, with some higher-end features missing, available free of charge. Akeeba Backup Professional is the real deal, available only to subscribers.

One of the first components we install on the Joomla websites we build is the Joomla Content Editor (JCE).  We find it to be an easy editor to use, with a lot of functionality.  

We love the fact that it is extendable to add additional required functions.  Additional add-ons add the ability to add captions, emotions, iframes, file manager, image manager, media manager, template manager, etc.

The editor itself is free to download and subscriptions are available to access the additional functionality.

We highly recommend it!
