After a long time, I tackled under-documented php code and I came out victorious after wrangling with it for 2 nights (around 4 hours of work each night).
Joomla! is the cms I use to run my site and it has proven to be good software. There is a good collection of Joomla extensions, but quite a lot of the extensions are under dubious licenses and don't do all the work I want. Hence the need to get a clue on how to make joomla extensions.
