  1. Simple Isotope Module has been adapted to become a ** Component**.

  2. Make the most of Joomla's core Protostar template. Style and never worry about overwriting on updates!

    Style the core Joomla Protostar template without editing any files by using the simple styling tools and the custom inline CSS editor.

    If you want to have many themes to choose from, easily add multiple custom CSS themes to the new custom/themes folder and be able to change the display as desired by simply selecting the file from a list in the protostar template manager.

    If you want to rearrange the positions or have more positions, easily add multiple custom PHP templates to the new custom/templates folder, then easily select the desired template from the drop list in the protostar template manager.


    • Create multiple template index files and select one for each duplicate instance of the protostar template.
      Place the files in protostar/custom/templates.
      Though Joomla has the function to create template duplicates (preferred), it merely creates a database instance with an ID to allow new parameter settings, but the files remain the same. Any change to the files will affect all instances. The other method to create actual file copy of the template will provide files which can be edited without affecting the core but eventually just clutters the template directory.
      This Proto Option feature allows the use of multiple file templates in the single Protostar core directory without the clutter and no concern of overwriting on updates.

    • Add multiple CSS themes
      Place the files in protostar/custom/themes to make them available for selections in the template manager

    • Add custom PHP
      Create a file named user.php and place it in protostar/custom

    • Add custom parameter fields
      Create a file named user.xml and place it in protostar/custom
      To output the value of the parameter elements, write the coding in user.php

    • Set a custom favicon and never lose it on updates
      Add a global favicon which will serve all duplicates of Protostar, or set a different favicon for each duplicate.

    • Create installable themes and display templates
      Make exotic designs and package as a Joomla file installer which uses the standard installation system. File installer also supports update notification. Spawn a new revenue source when you sell each Protostar theme.

  3. Paytm Payment Plugins are the fastest way to accept payments from your customers on Joomla Virtuemart e-commerce website using UPI, Debit/Credit Cards, Netbanking and Paytm Wallet.

  4. The Custom Canonical plugin provides Joomla administrators with a simple way to create persistent, URL agnostic canonical tags.

    What is a persistent, URL agnostic canonical tag?

    Persistent means that it does not vanish even if the page is not loaded correctly. The canonical tag is married to the item it is assigned to. Everywhere that item is the primary content the canonical tag is served.

    URL agnostic means that it does not depend on the URL. Canonical tags value is when they are served on a URL you don't want to be indexed. URL dependent canonical tags just about useless.

    A Canonical tag is an HTML rel="canonical" attribute value that identifies a URL as being canonical to the page it is served on.

    Currently Supported Item Types

    The Custom Canonical plugin allows you to create canonical tags on the following Joomla item types. It is served in the document head.

    • Articles
    • Categories
    • Tags
    • Menu Items

    Core Features

    Remove Default Canonical
    Joomla often sets incorrect canonical URLs. You have the option of removing those.

    Canonical Pagination
    Custom Canonical automatically appends pagination query strings to the end of the custom canonical URL on paginated results.

    Custom Canonical Tags
    You have the power to set the canonical tag to whatever you desire. This includes a different page on your site or an external site.

    Item Based Canonicals
    All canonical tags are item based. This means that (unlike some canonical solutions) they are URL agnostic. i.e. it is a real solution.
