It's Time to Celebrate the Freedom — Yet Again!

Postby brad » Sun Mar 05, 2006 10:29 pm

It's party time, folks!  Today we proudly announce the launch of our Joomla! Extensions site.  With Joomla! arguably the world's most popular open-source CMS and subsequently the largest active 3PD community, we're introducing the Extensions Directory to make things more fun. Yes, we have listened to the community about how it can be difficult to find things on the Forge.  That message came through loud and clear and a working group has been furiously working behind the scenes to make things user-friendly.

What's this mean? Trying to find a particular component, module or bot (soon to be known as plugin when Joomla! 1.1 is released) on Extensions is a breeze.  You can search by category, most popular, editor's picks, just as you can on high-end commercial software directories.  Once you've found what you want to use, there's a "more information" and "download" links to the Forge where the developer's project sits.  You will also be able to rate your choices, based on your experiences.

Tonie de Wilde (Tonie) will be administering the Extension Directory.  Tonie has been one of the community's most prolific contributors and has been asked to join the Core Team to assist Brad Baker with maintaining all of our sites, including the forums and the Forge.  "We  hope bringing Tonie on board will help further add to the smooth running of the community," Core Member Brad Baker said.  You can meet the guys who are devoting time to the directory on the Joomla! forum here: http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/board,262.0.html
