We’ve established that Joomla is a flexible platform for any business or individual looking to take control of their whole website, and best of all its also SEO friendly.
We all know that Joomla has a wide choice of extensions that one can download and install in to their CMS system for added functionality. But what extensions should we download and what should we take into consideration when downloading these extensions?
When choosing an extensions, module or plugin for Joomla, its best not to download the first plugin you come across, because if you download the wrong extension, you could be opening your site to hackers. Its best to do some research first.
- Read some reviews on what others have to say regarding the application, if there are quite a few negative feedbacks, I would recommend to leave that extension, and find your self another one. You can read feedbacks on each extension on the Joomla website, under extensions.
- Also look into what support the extension offers, do they have an after sales team, or a forum, or any other method of support, once you have purchased and download the extensions, where would you go for help regarding the product.
- Make sure the extension you are downloading is compatible with the latest version of Joomla, and I would I also check to see how often to they upgrade or release patches for their extension. Its important to keep up to date with the latest version of the extension, as not keeping your extension up to date, again your keeping your self vulnerable to hackers
