This is a test and development Website using Joomla CMS, many of the pages on here are experimental. We have some Joomla FAQ's that are designed to help and give a quick guide, they are by no means comprehensive. They are tips and suggestions with links to official Joomla documentation and are not themselves official.
Other features of the site include Joomla modules. The extensions were originally designed more as a gimmick than as serious tools. However, they have proved popular and many people have downloaded them. Because of the pouplarity we have developed we have developed more powerful tools and extensions.

A little information has been added to our 'Replacing corrupt files' page. It is in the Joomla FAQ's section although it does not apply strictly to Joomla it applies also to Graphic design. And hopfully it will be moved to it's own page and expanded on. We also have planed tutorials on other computer related topics like:
- Printing Brochures.
- Company image and Branding.
- Getting high ranking in Google and other search engines.
- Social networking.

We no longer support the Kookie Grab module. Below is the documentation for the original Kookie Grab created by Kevin Griffiths for those who to continue with it's development.
If there is enough demand for the module then we may develop the Kookie Grab module for Joomla 3.x and beyond. If we do the module will be Open Source for Joomla CMS and licensed GPL. For various reasons we will not be requesting that any of our extensions be listed as an an official extension.
