Why not BuddyPress themes and plugins?
Woohoo! I just submitted my first template.
I wish WordPress and Joomla where more alike code wise
Just out of curiosity, is there a version restriction? I might have some of my custom plugins in my archives somewhere for v1.5 or less.
Unfortunately I quit developing for Joomla a few years back. After Joomla did a major rewrite sometime around 1.5 or 1.6. After evaluating it’s popularity, performance, and end user ease of use (my clients), to that of WordPress – I quickly realized WordPress was the future of blogging – and CMS . After I switched to WordPress I’ve never looked back.
