Extension and Template Add-ons
Extensions are additional programs that add content to your Joomla site. These extensions can range from event calendars, to photo galleries, to e-commerce tools. Certain extensions are compatible with different versions of Joomla. Many trustworthy and dependable extensions can be found at http://extensions.joomla.org/. These extensions have been tested by Joomla staff and are safe and virus free. As always though, be careful of what and from whom you download products.
