This is a handy little plugin that allows you to switch to a different editor really quickly without having to go to the global configurations page.

  1. OScontent - alledia.com

This is a fork of the abandoned Mass Content component. We’ve been using this component for years to load multiple categories, articles, and menu items into Joomla in one easy step.

  1. JCE Editor - joomlacontenteditor.com

This is by far the best 3rd party editor available for Joomla and is a must have Joomla extension. JCE is an extendable editor that allows you to also add additional editor plugins to enhance your content editing requirements. JCE has tons of configuration options as well but equally works great as a standard installation.

  1. Admin Tools Pro - Akeebabackup.com

Admin tools is an all in one suit of tools that allow you to keep your Joomla website running like a top. With built in tools like a security firewall, database management and optimization, temp directory cleaning, and more. This is a tool that we install on every website we build. There is also a free version but we prefer the Pro edition for the additional tools it provides.

  1. Akeeba Backup Pro - Akeebabackup.com

This is perhaps the single most important tool that we use on our Joomla websites. Backups are the most critical thing to have for your disaster recovery plan. Akeeba Backup Pro will allow you to do scheduled backups, site transfer, restore points, and allows you to select if you want to skip files or database tables from being included in your backups.

  1. CMS Updater -  Akeebabackup.com

We know, Joomla has a built in one click updates component.  But this extension is so much better. You can re-update the joomla core files if you need to, and it will automatically email you when an update is available allowing you to be a bit more hands off on always checking for updates.

  1. EXTplorer - extplorer.net

There are lots of file managers available for Joomla, and we have found this one to be the best. It allows you to create, delete, and edit directories and files. Have you ever needed a fast way to edit a line of source code in a file? This file manager has a built in code editor that allows you to do it. You can upload multiple files to any directory you need to really fast without the need for connecting to your server with your FTP program.
