Modules, Extensions & Components…oh MY!
I am trying to shave down my ‘wish list’ by importance according to my site outline.
- Gallery – Slideshow – for hair styles by stylists, possibly add a product gallery later. Considering Image Flow.Simple Image Gallery, there is another gallery I found a year ago, and still looking for it. It uses Flash – had 9 free views, I did find this Flash slideshow XML Slideshow and another Creative Clans with its Clan documentation – this last one is looking for someone to help design free borders for images, and ALSO mentioned that out of 11,000 downloads, only 2 made a donation! Found the one I want! Pro IMage Flow – $20, but probably worth it. I see this company also has some rotating image modules for a small fee.Carousel slideshow
- Tips – RSS feed – Slick, or Simple RSS Feeds– for several options (makeup tips, hair style tips, pedicure tips, product lines carried, possibly more)
- Forms – Extensions feedback, product request, gift certificate (later if google checkout enabled) List of form Extensions. Still not satisfied with these, but looking at a low cost which has a Plug-In for google analytics; another google analytic means to be included in a form using an idea I have yet to check into – both quick tutorial and Jumi.
- Log in form module for stylists to upload changes to their personal information an photo’s Tutorial (enable?)
- Component poll for user input on products/services
If there is still time, I would like to add:
- module/extension calendar to determine schedule of stylists and events possibly not for more than 1 event/day. Single Event per day calendar,
Calendar – more than one event per day – shows google calendars inside joomla.
- Google checkout
- Google Analytics
- Google Map
- Search Box
I did stumble on a security find, while reading my RSS feeds. This is an interesting ‘test drive’ article about a Joomla Security Extension called SecureLive. I am really loving the fact that my Delicious tags are keeping up with my blog! This is a new feature for me, and I don’t know how I ever lived without this and the RSS reader program Feedreader! I feel as though my teacher, Elaine is turning me into a ‘toolbox diva’!
