Having opted to build and run your website using the Joomla Content Management System (CMS), you may find yourself being in need of Joomla plug-ins at some point. The plug-ins make it possible for you to extent Joomla’s basic functionality. Although Joomla is a sophisticated CMS, there are certain things that it is incapable of doing (in its basic implementation). Those are the things that necessitate the use of plug-ins. Having gotten to this point, where you have to use Joomla plug-ins, the (obvious) question that will arise is as to how you can get the plug-ins. That is the question I will attempt to answer, albeit briefly, in today’s article.
One way to get Joomla plug-ins is by downloading them from the web. There are numerous Joomla plug-ins available to be downloaded from the Internet. Some are meant to be downloaded for free. Others have to be paid for. To pay for a Joomla plug-in, you can just load some money into your Kroger personal finance debit card, and then transfer it online. You can subsequently use it to pay for the Joomla plug-in you need.
Another way to get Joomla plug-ins is by hiring someone to create them for you. You can, for instance, hire a freelancer to create the Joomla plug-in you need. Or you can hire a local developer to help you create the plug-in you need. Don’t fear. Some of these plug-ins don’t really cost too much money to create.
Yet another way to get Joomla plug-ins is by coding them yourself. If you have decent coding skills, there is absolutely no reason as to why you cannot create the necessary plug-ins is by yourself. After creating the plug-in and deploying it to do whatever your desired, you can subsequently publish it/avail it to the rest of the Joomla user community. That way, anyone else who needs to use it wouldn’t have to code it from scratch. That is how open source software communities thrive: by sharing what we manage to create in an altruistic spirit.
