Marlar's Joomla plugins - Taking back control!
When I was first
introduced to Mambo (the predecessor of Joomla) I was quite impressed with all the possibilities
and amount of flexibility it offered. However, when I digged somewhat
deeper into it, I soon came to realize that in reality you don't have
much control of the content. Mambo has a simple but more or less
sufficient user management system, but you can only decide which pages people are allowed to see, you cannot control individual sections on the pages.
Likewise, if you need to take full control of how a page appears, and
consequently enters some html code, you will soon find that the
wysiwsyg editors either change or completely eat you html code.
To circumvent such kinds of problems I have created some very useful mambots which you are welcome to try out and download.
The plugins might or might not work in Mambo, but they are not tested.
