Welcome to JoomLadds

We have been creating custom extensions as well as modifying existing extensions for our clients for years and decided to contribute further to the usefulness of Joomla! by offering just a few of the extensions that we have developed. Please visit our Products section to see a list of our current extensions.

What to say? Where is River Media?

The economy is a beast not to be trifled with. Over the past few years, business has slowed to a crawl causing us to look for additional income. We had been fortunate to keep the business running during that time, but that has changed. It has become neccessary for us to close the doors of River Media.

Joomla 2.5 End of Support

It has been a really long time since Joomla has announced End of Life for Joomla 2.5, which will mark the end-of-support for the Joomla 2.5 series. While current websites running Joomla! 2.5 will continue to work, administrators are encouraged to use this opportunity to migrate their sites to Joomla! 3.x. When a Joomla! version reaches end of support, it means that Joomla! will no longer provide bug fixes, features or security updates.

We are currently experienceing issues with our payment system for the Joomla Backup Plans. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing one of these plans.

Joomla Backup Management with Akeeba Backup Professional

Akeeba Backup

If you have a Joomla powered website and would like the peace of mind knowing that your data is safe, this subscription plan is a must.

Akeeba Backup is an open-source backup component for the Joomla! CMS, quite a bit different than its competition. Its mission is simple: create a site backup that can be restored on any Joomla!-capable server. It creates a backup archive which contains all the files, a database snapshot and a restoration script. The backup and restore process is AJAX powered, designed to avoid server timeouts, even with multi-gigabyte sites! Alternatively, you can make a backup of only your database or your files.

What you can expect:

  • We will install and configure1 the Akeeba Backup Professional extension.
  • You will receive free updates to Akeeba Backup Professional for as long as you maintain an active subscription.
  • We will periodically monitor your site back-up files to insure intregity.
  • We can set up all needed CRON2 jobs in your cpanel.
  • All backup files are stored on an off-site secure server. (Hosted by Amazon S3)
  • Automated2 Weekly, Bi-Weekely or Monthly3 full site back-up of your entire Joomla website.
  • Automated2 Nightly backups of your site database.
  • We can restore your Joomla site from a full backup in the case of a site failure4.
  • Choose from subscriptions as low as $125/yr or $14.95/mo (plus a $25 one time set-up fee5)

Akeeba Backup's pedigree goes a long way. Making its first public appearance as JoomlaPack back in November 2006, nowadays it is a native Joomla! 2.5/3.x component, downloaded over 3 million times, making it one of the most established Joomla! extensions.

What the process looks like:

  1. Choose your subscription plan (monthly or annual) and pay.
  2. If you need help creating the Akeeba Backup Profiles, you will need to create a ticket with our help desk to supply your Joomla Admin User credentials.
  3. We will create the Amazon S3 account for your site backup and email you the credentials if needed6.
  4. If you need assistance setting up the cron jobs, we will create them for you.
  5. The final step will be to configure Akeeba Backup Professional on your site.
Fine Print:
  1. Our support staff may require access to your Joomla Back-end administrator if you need assistance creating the Akeeba Backup profiles.
  2. CRON is required - Our support staff may require access to your Web Hosting cPanel if you need assistance creating the cron jobs
  3. Back-up interval dependent on site needs. Default is every 12 hours.
  4. Excessive restoration of database or site files due to non-failure will require additional fee.
  5. All of the setup and configuration of a Joomla Backup plan (re: Akeeba Backup Professional & Amazon S3) is a manual process. Please allow 2-3 business days for completion of the first backup.
  6. Access to the Amazon S3 server will be for the sole purpose of storing the backup files. We do not allow the uploading and storage of ANY OTHER content whatsoever. Violation of this agreement will result in a warning and possible termination of your backup plan subscription.

It looks like our specialty with extensions is to fill-in the gap where we seem to find Joomla lacking. Now don't get me wrong, we think Joomla is the best CMS on the planet, just that it doesn't come with everything you need pre-installed. And that's ok! That's where developers like us get to do our best work.

Menu Links Majix

With this in mind, we have added a new extension to our line-up that helped us create buttons and links on our new website during the last upgrade. We asked ourselves, how can we add links to our site in articles (or for us, we use K2) and if the links changes, they won't break. The answer we came up with is to leverage the usage of plain text links that Joomla creates for every menu item that is created (an alias).

Oh sure, you can use some fancy SEO link generator component, but if you are like us... we like to keep things simple. So we created a simple little content plugin that you can add any where on your site that will accept a content plugin. You know, those funny little brackets { } that you place stuff in that can enhance your site.

It would look something like this: { menulink id:444,class:btn } (spaces were added so the plugin wasn't parsed). When actually parsed, looks like this: Menu Links Majix Documentation

And to that point, if you want to see exactly how to use this plugin with more examples, visit the link.

Did you miss finding our Constant Contact Sign-Up Module (Sign-Up Majix Pro) on the Joomla Extensions Directory?

We stumbled across the fact that our module was unpublished on the JED when we attempted to add a new submission. It turns out that after the last overhaul of the JED, someone took to revisiting published extensions and disabled ours because it didn't meet all of the criteria.


A plugin that has been listed for years, suddenly and without notice was unpublished. Anyways, I don't mean to whine. I just wrote this article to share that our popular module is still available and ready for download (with an active club subscription of course).

It has been almost a month and multiple support tickets to just sit and play the 'waiting game'. Hopefully we will get this all resolved soon, but rest assured, this module is still available. It's ain't goin' nowhere!


March 6th, 2015

We are happy to report that our module has finally been published once again on the JED. It seems that with the latest updgrade to their site, they installed some new 'hidden' features. One of which unfortunately unpublished our module. I won't bore you with all the details, we're just happy to report that all of our extensions are listed once again and available on the Joomla Extensions Directory.

Pretty straight forward:

If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, within 30 days from the purchase date, we will fully refund the cost of your subscription(s).

PERIOD! No Questions asked!

We just had the time of our lives!

No, seriously. Ever since Joomla! 3.x became a stable version, long before the Joomla! Team announced doing away with the Long Term & Short Term release cycles, we tried our hand at upgrading our site from the current 2.5.x version to 3.x.

Needless to say, every attempt resulted in the infamous "White Screen of Death"! And believe me, we tried many times. Due to our resource limitations and lack of available time to work on our own site, the update was tabled for a later date.

A few months later... We couldn't give up; we knew that sooner or later (hopefully sooner) we would have to get our site upgraded. So, the next step was to create our new site from the beginning. A brand new JoomLadds.com was born. If you are interested in our progress, please read on...

This page always lists the latest releases of each extension. Links to older versions are also available under each item.
Untested Developer Releases are also available to experienced users who want to perform pre-release evaluation of new features.
