Finding a right Joomla extension for your site is always painful when you have choice of 7K+ extensions. Right now, Joomla Extension Directory (JED) contains 7943 extensions and choosing right extension for sites could be a nightmare. For you we have prepared a short list of extensions which every Joomla site requires.
All the extensions mentioned in this article are regularly used by ourselves and our child sites. Neither we have any affiliation with the extension provider nor we have used any affiliate link.
If you ever get the chance to use EasyBlog, EasyDisucss or even free Komento extension you know the quality of their product. All of their extensions are well thought and professionally crafted. Our Blog and Forum also runs their product and we are extremely satisfied. Recently they announced for a new Social extension and I believe that will be another top notch product like EasyBlog and EasyDiscuss.
After seeing their screenshot and talking with them I can say it's a true rival of Jomsocial and Community Builder. I'm really excited to integrate this EasySocial in our template and Expose framework.

But what's the guarantee that it won't be hacked again? How do you exactly what security hole gave the hacker access to your server in the first place?
