What are Joomla Extensions?

Joomla’s Extension Manager is where you manage all the various additions you have added to your site. From here you can manage all the components, plugins, modules and other system settings. Extensions come from various sources or can be developed via PHP programming or core modifications and shortcode.

Joomla is designed to be extended in numerous ways. By using extensions you can turn your Joomla website into just about anything you like.

There are 1000’s of extensions available for Joomla that you can use and most of them are free.

Each extension will require a certain about of configuration and possibly some customization to get it the way you would like for your website.

An extension is a software package that extends your Joomla! installation in some way. A small selection of extensions is included with the default Joomla! installation but many more are available from the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

The term extension is generic and the following specific extension types are available (listed alphabetically):

  • Component (since Joomla 1.0) – adds custom functions to your site that can be selected from menus
  • Language (since Joomla 1.0) – defines an additional language for your site
  • Library (since Joomla 1.6) – provides functions to be used by other extensions
  • Mambot (in Joomla 1.0) – modifies content in articles
  • Module (since Joomla 1.0) – shows nonessential data in a side box, possibly on multiple pages
  • Package (since Joomla 1.6) – bundles related extensions
  • Plugin (since Joomla 1.5) – modifies content in articles or provides functions to extend other extensions
  • Template (since Joomla 1.0) – define the look, feel, and navigation capabilities of your site
