What is Joomla?
Joomla! is one of the most powerful Open Source Content Management Systems on the planet. It is used all over the world for everything from simple websites to complex corporate applications. The ease of use for the end user, super fast development & deployment cycles & a pretty short learning curve, make Joomla based systems a hugely popular solution.
The base Joomla CMS or content Management system incorporates a lot of built in features like the ability to create complex content structures using sections & categories, a WYSIWYG editor to ease addition of content, User Management, Contact Management, Web Link Management, Plugin architecture to extend Joomla using a score of Open Source Community Built extensions as well as commercial add ons , Template use for complete look & feel customisation etc.
We have been working with the Joomla CMS since it was one with the Mambo project (2005) & have been developing for Mambo & Joomla since.

Joomla Extension Development (Components, Modules & Mambots/Plugins)
With such a large community driving the Joomla CMS you will always find a wide array of extensions on the Joomla Extensions website for a variety of needs. But with Joomla, the possibilities are endless & with each new user getting added to the Joomla community, new requirements evolve, bringing with it the need to develop new Extensions.
Our team of resourceful developers is at your service to create the tailor made extension that you need for your specific set of requirements.
As with core Joomla many extensions are developed for satisfying broad needs of most websites. Many a times you will come across an extension that would be just perfect for your needs only if it had this specific feature or that specific functionality. This is where we come in. We can modify existing extensions to suit your needs & give you that bit of extra functionality or feature. Our developers are well versed with Joomla Extension architecture & are kept abreast with latest developments in the community & can easily fine tune the extension to your requirements.
'Extension Specific Plugin' Development
A lot of Extensions available for Joomla offer a plugin based architecture to extend the functionality of the extensions by the use of Plugins. Our services include building such plugins from ground up as well as modification of existing plugins to provide the features you need.
Some of the popular extensions providing Plugin Functionality are Community Builder, Sigsui Online Business Directory , Fireboard, DocMan, Artio JoomSEF etc.
Joomla Core Modifications ( Hacks)
Joomla is a CMS developed by the masses for the masses. Some very special requirements cannot be fulfilled using Joomla Extensions. At such times modifications have to be made to the core joomla files or the database. These are called as hacks. In the special cases that even custom developed extensions cannot fulfil your needs, we provide you with solutions using Joomla hacks. Please note that such solutions are prescribed only after detailed consultation with the client, to evaluate the need of hacking. Wherever possible we'll ask you to alter you needs slightly so that no hacks are needed. Only if such alterations are not possible do we resort to hacks. Wherever possible, hacks that we develop will be provided in a intelligent installer package which you can install & uninstall using the Joomla component installer. Also detailed documentation will be provided for manual upgrade to higher versions of Joomla.
Besides Joomla based Development Services we also provide Joomla Consultancy & Training Services.
