Writing Modules the Fast and Fun Way
Even with almost 10,000 extensions in the Joomla Extension Directory, a search for one serving your exact needs can still come up empty. Sooner or later, you're going to want to start building your own extensions. If you've never built an extension before, join us as we write a module: the quickest way of authoring reusable code for your site. We'll start with the absolute bare minimum you need to run a module, then craft it into something more flexible.
