The Joomla! content management system lets you create webpages of various types using extensions.
There are 5 basic types of extensions: components, modules, templates, languages, and plugins.
Your website includes the extensions you need to create a basic website in English, but thousands of additional extensions of all types are available.
The 'JED' Joomla! Extensions Directory is the largest directory of Joomla extensions.
