The Joomla! 1.5 Top Extensions Cookbook is one of Packt Publishing’s cookbook series meaning that it contains recipes. This book contains over 80 different recipes to use extensions to add maps, image galleries, slideshows, audio and video players, security, forums, shopping cart, guestbook and other functionalities to your site. Each recipe is a articles with an idea and how to work it out (step by step), just like a regular cookbook.
Joomla! is an open-source award-winning PHP/MySQL based content management system (CMS). Since its available under the GPL license it`s free to download, modify and use it for your website.
