Joomla Components

We are delighted to offer a few Joomla components as a thank you to the Open Source community.

The Famous Websites Team

Please remember these components were written for very specific scenarios, your circumstances may be different so before downloading please read the descriptions and any instructions.

You may find a component does exactly what you want but most likely it 'kind of' does, but not quite. We can of course modify and customise a component for you but at commercial rates.

Likewise, we can not offer free support other than what is already on record either at Joomla or in the notes, our write up on each component.



is a Joomla! 1.5 native component developed for medical websites but can be used on any site that wants to offer educational content in question and answer format. Think of it as a type of flash-card system.

IMPORTANT: If you have version 1.1 installed please download and use the security patch found here.

The administrator can add as many 'sets' of questions as needed. Each question 'set' can have as many questions as needed. Adding a question is as easy as adding a regular article and uses the normal Joomla! editor so they can contain pictures and carry html formatting too. Question sets can be switched on or off, individual questions can also be switched on or off.

Your readers are automatically presented with the latest question set added but can access a listing of all available sets to choose another if they wish. Having viewed a question the reader selects a 'show answer' button and the answer is revealed. The reader can skip forward and backward through the question set too.

Originally developed to help doctors improve their diagnostic imaging skills, hence, it is not appropriate to include a grading or 'testing' feature. However, Medi-QnA can be used anywhere a question and answer format is required such as distance learning or as an alternative to flash-card style educational content. There is more information available on Medi-QnA here.

Send CSV List

Ever had a client or colleague ask for an Excel file of the users list from their site? If so, this might be the component you need. Send CSV List is a Joomla! 1.5 native component that sends a CSV file extracted from the user listing to your administrators mailbox. This can be imported into Excel and other popular spreadsheets.

The Joomla registered users table has lots of fields, most contain data that is meaningless outside of the Joomla! environment. Hence, Send CSV List only gathers the useful (e.g. the password field stores an MD5 string which is useless outside of the website) data. If a user has entered their forename and surname Send CSV List will place the names in the appropriate column so when viewed in a spread sheet forenames are separate from surnames. This means should your client wish to contact the users (mail-merge etc.) they can create a tailored salutation.

Send CSV List checks to make sure you have super-user status before starting, it creates the CSV file and eMails it to your address so you can easily forward it onto your client/colleague.
