This is a database maintained by the Joomla developers of all components, plugins and modules available for use with the Joomla platform, both paid and free.

Install from Web

The Joomla Install from Web feature was added as part of Joomla! 3.2 to make installing extensions from the Joomla Extensions Directory (JED) easier.

To enable it simply go into the Joomla Extension Manager and click on the notice at the top to install the extra plugin needed for it to function.

Many extensions can be installed directly, while others will display a download link or a link to the developer for download.
