freakedout blog

Welcome to our Blog. This is the place we publish articles about our products, interesting Joomla! extensions and more internet and business related topics.


When you are looking at designing a new site or logo or wallpaper or letterhead, you want to find a good font. So in addition to the list of font files you will find 3 really nicely assembled collections of free fonts by Vitaly Friedman.   I know there are many more, but these are good quality sites and should provide a good starting point to newcomers. Also check out if you saw a font and want to find out what it was. Stay tuned for brushes, textures, patterns and more every tuesday and friday until we run out of topics. :) And then we will make up some more. Enjoy.

How to create a visitor map for Joomla!

Joomla is a great content management system and once you get to know about the structure of components, modules and plugins you can begin to create your own custom extensions.  However, online documentation is pretty sparse when it comes to this part - the most in-depth documentation usually only consists of how to create a 'Hello World' extension.

As a newcomer to the world of Joomla I found this lack of tutorials quite frustrating so I've decided to write my own.  The following instructions explain how to create a module from scratch that includes parameters, a third party library and a Google map chart.  Once finished we will have a module that displays visitor information on a map of the world using data grabbed from Google Analytics.  Hopefully this will shed some light on the topic for some of you.


Welcome to our new site with a spankin' new interface. Even though the site itself appears to be more colorful, the structure has been kept simple and in parts made even easier to navigate. The general theme is simplicity.

jtop10Jtop10 is one of our free extensions that displays the 10 most viewed articles for several categories.  We've just updated it so that you can now choose to display the hits per article and also display these hits in awesome CSS bar charts!

google_analytics_campaigns... for Google Analytics Tracking. Modern marketing demands a social media presence and there are many companies who do a good job of engaging their customers in conversation on sites such as facebook and twitter.  However, there are times when you may wish to move this conversation to your own site by getting your fans or followers to click on links. 

You can track the number of people who click on your links by using a URL shortener but what happens if you wish to track conversions from these social media campaigns? This question led us to the discovery of an article by Hendry Lee that explains how Google's URL Builder can be used for this exact purpose.  Check it out for the technical details or just follow the instructions below so that you can begin to measure social media marketing effectiveness more accurately today!

Why freaked out?

The name "freaked out" does not symbolize our mental state but rather the approach to give our clients the unexpected - the extra edge - over their competitors to be successful in bussiness. That might appear from time to time a little freaked out but if you want plain vanilla work there are plenty of companies out there offering that. We go beyond.


If you have any questions or comments about our extensions or need help to get started please use our forums or the contact form. We will get back to you shortly!

Pro subscribers are advised to use the ticket system to receive premium support.
