Sometimes, we really love Joomla!

As you would expect from unsupported open source software, Joomla! can sometimes be a pain to work with.  You can end up spending ages puzzling over problems.  And, sometimes there are unexpected incompatibilities that prevent you from using that key component that is exactly what you need (grrr!) — or, you install it and it breaks something else you really needed.  Documentation is usually poor or nil, and, with many of the most popular add-on developers outside the US, the process of implementing and customizing is almost always delayed severely by the overnight wait for answers to questions.  Sometimes, it seems the “savings” from this “free” product are illusory.

But, then there are those times when the module you need is available for free — and it really works.  And you marvel at the wonders of open source!

We’ve had that experience with a great product called SimpleCaddy from Atlantic Intelligence.  It’s FREE and it does exactly what it promises: it provides a simple shopping cart system that is integrated with PayPal, and includes a shipping calculator and even a coupon system.

We just implemented it on How Rude Is That? A relatively simple four-product store took us only about a day and a half to set up.
