There are a lot of Components that are free to download. This article will show you what some of them are and how they can benefit your website.
First, I want to explain the difference between free and paid versions of these different types of components. We all know that if you’re going to do free Joomla components, you need to do them with the use of a third party component library. Not many people have heard of these but if you need them, check out the ones listed below.
Free libraries generally will provide only basic features. Most will provide only basic features including theme configuration, sidebars, footers, menus, footers, headers, etc.
For free content, you will find the most use in their widgets and the free libraries. The most advanced will be the components that come with applications that you can install in your site. These applications are free in most cases.
The photo gallery component is a free part of the Joomla software. This component will allow you to upload and manage your photos. It also has basic features such as video, image, download, mobile and CSV upload capabilities. But, it will only work on sites that are using the Joomla software to post files.
Next is the social networking component. It has many social networking buttons that you can use. This component comes in different versions, so you should choose the one that best suits your needs.
The email address provider component is a free component. It lets you manage, sort and search for email addresses. This feature also has a page builder, which will allow you to set up your own pages using simple HTML or text.
AJAX free component library. This is a free version that allows you to perform Ajax and MVC requests with your users. It also comes with some basic programming scripts that will help you build your own components with no programming knowledge.
The Content Management component provides templates for editing your content. You can change any page or even all pages to make changes to any of them.
This is a free component that will allow you to play, download and save media. This is a popular component because it has many functions.
Finally, the template customized component allows you to easily change your page templates. It includes some basic and advanced functions. This is a fairly advanced component that is very useful for setting up a new theme.
