Joomla Plug-Ins I Can’t Live Without

I’ve been blogging so much about WordPress that I’ve neglected posting about Joomla, the CMS I spend most of my time mucking around with. Here are some Joomla plug-ins I can’t live without.

ChronoForms
Allows you to create forms in Joomla without having to use a separate form mail script. Has a number of bells and whistles, most of which I’ve barely touched, sad to say. 

Title Manager
This little one trick pony restores a Joomla 1.0 convention of placing your site name before (or after) your page TITLE. This is usually the first plug-in I add to a new Joomla install. 

PlayerFLV
Makes embedding FLV in a content item really easy.

AllVideos
One step better than PlayerFLV, AllVideos allows easy embedding of nearly any audio or video file format, including MP3, FLV, MOV, WMV, SWF, and more

Attend Events
Used in conjunction with the Events Calendar, this plug-in allows site visitors to register for events.

Jweather
Adds a weather forecast to your site. Very slick and easy.
