Allowing users to add your Joomla-based articles and Web pages to their list of favorites is a classic way of making your site easy to find, helping happy users to return and increasing your Google Page Rank.   The idea is simple. If only putting it into practice were so easy.  

If you're looking for an Add To Favorites Module, you've really got two choices.

MyLinks, (available here) lets registered users store their favorite local links in a basket so that they can easily go back to the parts of your site they like the most. You need to install both the component so that you can handle the back-end management and the module so that users can see it.  

The other option is the jh_Favorites (available here). This has some nice features beyond simply adding a page to a favorites list. It also checks whether the user has already added that page and tells the developer how many times a page has been added - a good measure of which topics your users like. Best of all, the link appears automatically at the end of each article, saving you the trouble of doing it yourself.

  • "Fantastic"


    "It's not very often I have the opportunity to thank any of the many software companies with whom I have dealings, but I make a point of doing so when the occasion arises. This is such an occasion. Yesterday I raised three support queries. Today all three have been dealt with. More than that... one of your support staff went to one of our websites and installed the patch himself. Fantastic. If you ever want a testimonial, call me."
