 So after the holidays I started to put together and play with my first Joomla 1.6 site and I found that many of my favorite extensions were not available yet.

 This post wil be a place where I keep tabs on the status of the standard extensions I use on Joomla sites.  Some of them you may use and some you may not.  If you would like and extension added to the list contact me and  I will see what I can do.

Extensions I use on most of my Joomla sites as a base install.
