We build sites that owners can use, edit, and change themselves (if they want to) so not all of these sites may appear as they did when we delivered them!
Here is a list of some of the Pro Joomla Extensions we have licenses to use in our projects and maintain on the sites of our clients. If one of your favourites is missing, let us know. It may just be that we haven't updated our list yet.
4SEO is a handy Search Engine Optimization extension that helps with broken links, redirect rules, and custom error pages.
AcyMailing is a newsletter plugin that automates the process of sending out emails to your audience.
Akeeba Backup is the #1 most popular Joomla Extension, with "[a] single goal: backup, restore and transfer your site in a snap!"
We think Convert Forms is the most user friendly and feature-rich form maker for Joomla. Tassos, the Convert Forms developer, provided an overview of it on our channel:
Drop Files is an amazing file management tool for Joomla. It even syncs with major cloud accounts such as DropBox, GDrive, and OneDrive!
Elfsight offers many widgets that can be implemented to websites, including customer reviews (Google, Yelp, etc.), social media feeds (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.), and chat services.
Created by the same developer behind ConvertForms, EngageBox is another one of Tassos' convenient extensions to create interactive pop-up prompts for Joomla sites. With a plethora of customization options and adjustable conditions for scrolling, hovering, and even detecting AdBlock—these pop-ups are great for engaging visitors!
We think that HikaShop is a convenient e-commerce tool for managing products, orders, sales, and everything else in setting up an online store.
Fun fact: The "Hika" part of HikaShop is named after hikaru (光), the Japanese word for light (in the sense of a gleam, shine, sparkle, etc.)
JCE Editor replaces the standard WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor on Joomla and adds customizable features that greatly improve the user experience and overall convenience of editing content.
Joomdle combines the functionality of Moodle courses with Joomla's interface and seamlessly connects the two! For those whose busineses revolve around learning and education, Joomdle is the extension for you!
JoomlaCK is run by the developer Cédric Keiflin and offers extensions primarily relevant to creating pages on Joomla websites. Whether it be building templates, pages, or adding interactive menus, JoomlaCK has it all!
We have a pro license for all JoomlaCK extensions, but here are some of our favourites:
Maximenu CK is a flexible and robust tool to create custom menus for any website.
Mobile Menu CK allows us to create custom-styled menus for any site's mobile resolution.
Page Builder CK
Page Builder CK is self-explanatory: this extension facilitates creating custom pages with a wide variety of styling through animated text, accordions, and images, among many others. The versatility of Page Builder CK is beneficial as its interface can be used on articles, modules, and more!
Template Creator CK
Template Creator CK is a tool for creating your own Joomla templates with your custom layout and styles. It is compatible with Joomla 4 and the latest versions of Joomla 3.
ochJSsocials is an open source extension for adding social media icons that seamlessly blend in with your website. This plugin offers efficient functionality in redirecting visitors to your other social media without hindering the load time of your website.
RAXO ensures that modules are presented in a visually aesthetic manner on websites, with different templates and customization options to choose from so that your content stands out in the best way possible!
Regular Labs contains a wide variety of extensions that are convenient for managing any Joomla website—and fortunately, we have a pro license for all of their extensions!
We love everything that Regular Labs has to offer, but here are some of our favourites:
Cache Cleaner is a great extension that empties the cache of the backend of your website to ensure that changes are not visually hidden by the caching of older iterations of your site. This tool streamlines our workflow, for sure!
ReReplacer is a helpful search and replace tool that we often use to make quick and efficient changes to our database that would otherwise take ages to perform manually. Whether it be replacing key phrases in articles or adjusting formatting and other settings, ReReplacer is the perfect extension to streamline our workflow for more mundane fixes.
sh404SEF is a tool that we often use to manage Search Engine Friendly URLs, add aliases, and redirect duplicate links accordingly.
Want to make and preview changes to your website without making them live? StageIt can do just that! StageIt creates a staging environment for your website so that you can test and debug features on your site to ensure that everything works as intended before merging and publishing the changes for all to see.
For those of you who code, the best way to describe StageIt is creating a separate branch on GitHub—the staging site will not affect its live counterpart until the changes are synced.
Tired of maintaining your own Joomla site(s)? Take advantage of our Monthly Joomla Website Management package and let us do it for you!
Here's what you will get:
We will monitor your website for any and all available updates and install them when it's the right time. What do we mean by the right time?
The vast majority of time, the latest and greatest releases that come out are fine to install right away, but sometimes an issue slips by developers and testers and it breaks something when it hits wider distribution. We monitor the pulse of Joomla news and if we learn of such a situation we will wait until we know it's safe to update that particular extension.
We monitor the uptime of every Joomla site we manage. If your hosting is down we get an email notifying us and we look into it. If you wish, we can have a copy of that notification sent to you to keep you in the loop too!
We are big fans of mySites.guru and use it to run a weekly audit of your website. The results of those audits allow us to see where your Joomla site is running efficiently and where components can be improved. In the case of the latter, we will make recommendations to you - or even fix the little things ourselves.
By far, our favourite weekly audit feature is the test for hacked files. If your site gets hacked, we are alerted right away and will let you know right away so we can discuss a plan to slam the door on hackers!
Regular Off-Server Backups
In addition to our daily off-server backups, we will install Akeeba Backup Pro on your website and schedule it to run at a frequency that makes sense for your particular website. Backups are transferred to a cloud storage solution to which you have access (ie: DropBox, OneDrive, Gdrive, etc). From that point forward, if an Akeeba Backup process fails to complete, we'll be notified and look into why that happened and if any action needs to be taken.
Access to Pro Extensions
Many of the extensions and plugins running your Joomla website require users to purchase support memberships to access the latest versions. Our clients benefit from the memberships and licenses we have to the pro version of many of the most popular Joomla extensions. We have the license; our clients have access to the extensions!

There are many ways to do Joomla! In Cybersalt's Joomla Training Cohort you'll learn how to do Joomla the way we do it.
