The Basics

Installation without errors?

When was the last time you actually installed your own extension or template? As a developer you've been working on the code and may not be checking the installation process. No one wants to see an error or an untranslated string on their first install.

Does it do what it says?

I'm sure you have written some great documentation. At least I hope you have. But is it accurate and can the user find the information that they need?

Can I use it easily?

Everyone likes to say that their code is easy to use and that it is powerful. But how easy is it for a user to achieve that. Do you have readable instructions that make sense? Or does the user have to rely on voodoo magic and mind reading?

Did you reinvent the wheel?

Joomla provides a user interface - you may not like it but your users know it. If there is a Joomla way to do something it's better if you do it the Joomla way. It will reduce the time it takes for a user to learn.

Some of the Tests


Testing to ensure your extension is compatible with the latest release of Joomla. Don't override old code and layouts.


Have you even considered "accessibility" during the design process? Most developers have not and yet with experience there can be some easy wins.


There is nothing worse than invalid code and markup. No one wants to see errors in their console or logs.


Do you have so many options that no one knows what to do? Are you taking advantage of new features that simplify your configuration pages?



Did you spot all the errors in the example above? It can be hard when you see it every day.

Missing Strings
Missing Strings

You created the code but forgot to create the strings. When did you last check the install?


If this is how you are formatting your content then you are doing it wrong.
