NANY 2018 Release: Joomla Extensions
« on: September 07, 2017, 08:47 PM »
As I have been working for the last several months on migrating the DC website to the Joomla content management system, I have ended up coding a bunch of custom extensions.  Some are dc-specific and won't be of much use to others, but several would be of use to general joomla sites.  I plan on releasing a few as part of my NANY offerings this year.

Joomla Extensions now available, open sourced on github:

Bulk meta info viewer/changer - Used to quickly see and modify your article meta info (most similar to the osmeta extension but less invasive). I think this one is probably the most useful and of general interest to joomla users.

Log viewer - Simple extension to allow admin to view/tail system log files

Alternate control panel -- Simple alternate place to put admin modules instead of main control panel

Article links plugin -- Makes it easy to see and edit the menus that link to an article being edited

Menu list plugin -- Easy way to make pages that show a nice list (with image thumbnails) of child pages

Comment plugin -- Super simple plugin that just lets you "comment-out" sections of an article to make them invisible

Custom function content plugin -- Safe way to invoke custom php functions from article content
  • I did not open source this yet -- it's a lot of code and would require some additional documentation.

I hope you're including one that mutes the colors. That would be a site for sore eyes.
