I'm looking for a Joomla module or best way that lets admins create links to articles on a sidebar that can be nested/indented and ordered however the admin likes. Ideally it would be about as easy as managing a Wordpress menu. Right now, the site uses the ArticlesCategory module with a custom template for this, but getting the categories just right is getting unmanageable and messing with the breadcrumbs in some cases.

Joomla handles some 404s, IIS handles others. Whu?

I have an IIS Joomla site. If you go to (say) whatever.php, whatever.htm, whatever.html, or whatever (with no extension), and the file does not exist, you end up at a Joomla 404 page. If, however, you go to whatever.asp, whatever.do, or whatever.whatever you get sent to IIS's 404 page. [more inside]

What's your Joomla search solution?

I don't know if I'm alone here, but I'm finding the search functionality in Joomla to be terrible. I'm looking for something that provides filtering by site category and sorting by relevance, date, etc. I've searched the Joomla extension page and nothing seems to be able to accomplish this. What's your Joomla search solution?

Need to create locally-hosted, searchable database of vendors--help!

I maintain for my company a spreadsheet that contains a list of vendors and their associated information: address, contact(s), service area(s), service(s), website, and so on. It's becoming rather unwieldy as a vendor might have up to 5 different services, 2 addresses, 3 contacts each with their own email and phone number, etc. The information's all there, it's just very annoying to use. I had the idea of creating an "intranet" type website that staff could use to filter vendors by name, service area, service type, and so on, with the results displaying in an easy-to-read format (easier than a mile-long Excel sheet, anyway). I am open to solutions like Wordpress and Joomla, just not sure how best to implement. Any ideas? [more inside]

Which CMS for building a social networking website?

I've been brought onboard by a startup company to fix up their social networking website, which was built for them in Joomla and is a complete glitch-filled mess, both front and back end. After upgrading to the latest Joomla version, the site has more or less broken (does not function at all at the front end). Should I attempt to patch up and rebuild this mess in Joomla, or start over with a better choice of CMS? [more inside]

Online quiz that generates certificate?

I need to build a website where part of the functionality is to provide a weekly or biweekly quiz, and if all of the answers are correct, a certificate is provided to download and print. Ideally, the quiz takers name would be on the certificate as well. And it would be super fabulous if it integrated well with joomla or wordpress, but at that point I'm probably asking for magic ponies dipped in dark chocolate, but figured I'd ask. Any suggestions?

Head hurts. Insert own witty title here.

To more experienced developers than I, how would you achieve this? Three articles in a "position"? A ul in a single article (not really possible if I want to use h3s in each and remain w3c-compliant)? Something else? [more inside]
