Получение параметров плагина в модуле Joomla 3

Yesterday I was coding one new module and I needed to get one enabled plugin`s parameters. Yeah, they are saved in database, you can get them by mysql requests. But It`s better to use Joomla 3 native classes and methods. Let`s have a look, how it works.  

Simple Download Counter version 1.3 released

Making module Categories better in Joomla 3 part 3

I didn`t like how Joomla native Categories module counts articles in categories. It counts them separately, for example, if parent category has no articles, even if it has child categories with published articles - it says 0 articles in parent category. So I made new modification for it, so native module Categories counts all articles which are in all child categories in parent category. How this works you can see in right menu "Rubrics" on this blog, more info below in this post. 

Simple Download Counter вышла версия 1.2

Улучшаем модуль Категории для Joomla 3 часть 2

Several days ago I made some improvements in module mod_articles_categories - now it shows in tree only selected in admin panel categories.  But after that I got new "call"- all categories in module tree we always opened, but I wanted to show only parent categories and when parent category is active, only at that moment show it`s children categories tree. So I decided to make this standard Joomla Categories module better again.
