It was our intention to create a list of different types of extensions that have been rated as the best by users around the world. So, even if you are searching for something specific, you can still stumble upon something that can further help improve your website and facilitate your control over it.

You can then use the backup to restore your website on any server that supports Joomla through an AXA installer that has been implemented to avoid server timeouts.

JCE is an editor that allows Joomla users without any working knowledge in XML, CSS, XHTML, etc. to edit the content of their websites.  It is an environment that closely resembles Microsoft Office, and that is why it is so familiar and easy to use. You can use it to upload, edit and position images, create links that lead wherever you want them to and it also has an integrated spellchecker. It is also upgradable with file manager feature, media manager feature and so on.

ReReplacer is a search engine that allows you to find and change any part of your HTML code on the go.  You can use it to change elements which are in the HTML of your site, clean up your HTML, change specific words and much more.

It is basically a tool to make your use of Joomla easier. It allows you to change modules position, adjust your menu items, etc. Users around the world claim that this should be a native Joomla extension, since it simplifies the use to such a level that it is unbelievable.
