Recommended Joomla Extensions and Templates

Joomla Resources

Joomla ResourcesOne of the biggest resources any Joomla User, Admin or Developer can have is a place to turn when you need a recommendation. The Joomla Detroit Organizer has created a comprehensive page of Joomla Extensions and Templates recommended for all your Joomla needs! Sure, you could take hours browsing the Joomla Extensions Directory (JED), but why? We've compiled a complete list of high quality Joomla! software for you. We will continually update the page as we learn about more Joomla Resources, and it will be referenced often in posts and our meetups.

Disclosure:  We'd like you to know that some of the following links are affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, the Joomla User Group Detroit will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase.  We are listing both affiliate and non affiliate products, but we do make our recommendations based on quality of product and not because of the small commissions that are made if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals. The commissions earned from your purchases support the Joomla User Group and contribute to keeping our meetups free for all attendees.
