Last week I revealed that the number one thing I hate about Joomla is extensions. I have a love/hate relationship with Joomla at times, and so it's only fair that I counter this with a look at the thing I love most about Joomla. Discover what this is and I'll also introduce you to some Joomla goodies you've probably never heard of.
