Customize Joomla Extensions With Override

Posted by on in Joomla Tutorials

We all know that Joomla is a fantastic CMS for building professional websites.

That's great and all but what if you find a component or module that gives the functionality needed but the output and layout is not exactly what you want? A big mistake that some developers and webmasters make is going in and editing the core code of an extension. Joomla makes it easy by allowing overrides.

5 Joomla forms | Joomla Form Extensions

Why and when you should choose Joomla forms?

There are many types of forms and in many cases when you need one. If you start a company, you might need a form for the "Contact Us" field or a form for "Recruitment" purposes. When you launch new products, you need to collect Customer feedback, so another form is necessary. Normally, Joomla users think about using the built-in form in Joomla, however with this you cannot use the Captcha to prevent spam, and in addition it doesn't have an "attachment" feature, so it's limited use. Therefore, you need to choose 3rd party extensions.
