Joomla is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) out there with tons of great free extensions available to help improve the appearance and functionality of your website.  Here’s a couple that we’ve found and please feel free to comment on your favourites as well.

Mavik Thumbnails
If you need a quick and easy way to create image thumbnails on your Joomla website, check out Mavik Thumbnails.  The Mavik Thumbnails Joomla extension automatically makes image thumbnails for you, all you need to do is insert the original picture into your article and resize it as required.

Attachments
The ‘Attachments’ extension for Joomla! allows files to be uploaded and attached to articles and other types of content. ‘Attachments’ includes ability to attach and edit files from the front end as well as from the administrative back end. There are options to control who can see the attachments and who can upload them, along with many other options to increase its flexibility and usefulness.
