[CS-FSLUG] Recommended Joomla Add-ons?

Hey, finally something on this mail list I have some experience  
with!  I use joomla for all my websites.

Forums:  you have two good options (in my limited opinion).  One is  
to create a separate SMF forum and then use one of the bridges that  
link it with joomla.  The other is "fireboard" (I think).  It used to  
be called joomlaboard.  Anyway, fireboard is fully integrated within  
joomla, so no extra MySQL databases.  It's not as robust as a stand- 
alone forum, but for my purposes it works just fine.

Comments: I don't have that enabled, but I thought it was a built it  
feature of joomla.  I seem to remember a couple versions ago having  
to specifically turn it it off (then again I could be hallucinating).

CB:  I use CB on my main church site.  I only use a fraction of it's  
potential.  Basically just to add fields like birthdate, etc.  There  
are so very many plugins designed to use the extra features of CB.  I  
haven't had any trouble with CB at all.  It even installed exactly  
like the documentation said it would (an open source rarity - again  
in my limited experience).

I wish I could actually give you a list of the plugins I use, but I'm  
pressed for time.  I'll try to get it to you tomorrow.
