Akeeba Admin Tools
Hackers are constantly trying to get into your site to inject malicious code or to destroy your site. Akeeba Admin Tools will stop these hackers dead in their tracks.
Akeeba Admin Tools monitors your site and notifies you of any suspicious traffic on your site. Furthermore, once Akeeba notices suspicious behavior, it will lock out the user’s IP address if the user continues the suspicious behavior.
If you’re concerned about hackers, and you should be, get Akeeba Admin Tools.
The only disadvantage to this tool is the setup: it’s very complicated and requires that you read the excellent documentation in order to understand all the security settings.
If you need a simple contact form with Captcha protection, akContactSafe is the tool. It’s easy to set up and add extra fields. Why not use the native Joomla contact form? Good question. In Joomla 2.5, you can add recaptcha to Joomla contact pages, but it’s much more complicated to set up. With aiContactSafe, you’ll be up and running with a spam-proof form in minutes.
If you need to build a complex form, this free, powerful form-building tool is the one to use. First of all, it’s free, and the free version comes with all the features of the paid version. The only difference is the paid version does not include a visible link to chronoengine.com. And the new form building wizzard makes building complex forms pretty easy. Also, you can get great free support on the Chronoforms forum.
