Back in March, we announced the acquisition of Perfect Web, another Joomla extension company.

As a result, three Perfect Web extensions are moving to Joomlashack.

I'm delighted to say that the first extension is here! The original name of the extension is "Perfect Everything in Everyway". We're going to call it "Shack Toolbox".

Shack Toolbox provides powerful tools to show content from 19 different sources.

Shack Toolbox has over 50 reviews and a perfect 10/10 score on the JED. 

Shack Toolbox provides an easy way to display multimedia and content inside a module position. Here's a list of the 19 sources that you can show inside a Shack Toolbox module:

  1. Google Maps
  2. YouTube Video
  3. YouTube Gallery
  4. Vimeo Video
  5. Any Joomla Module
  6. Joomla Article
  7. K2 Item
  8. Zoo Article
  9. Seblod Article
  10. Iframe
  11. Link
  12. Facebook Page
  13. Facebook Post
  14. Custom HTML
  15. Twitter Feed
  16. Instagram Post
  17. Mailchimp
  18. Freshmail
  19. Cookie Policy

Moreover, you can display these items in many different ways. You can display them as an ordinary module, or you can use 20+ themes, animations, and visual effects including lightboxes, slideboxes, and popups.

What's the Difference Between Shack Toolbox and OSEmbed?

A few users asked about the similarirties between Shack Toolbox and OSEmbed. Both these extensions allow you to show content from other sites.

The simplest explanation is that Shack Toolbox is designed to be powerful and OSEmbed is designed to be easy.

  • With Shack Toolbox you have hundreds of different layout, design and configuration options. You can show Shack Toolbox anywhere on your site.
  • With OSEmbed you just need the URL for the content. There are no configuration options and it only works inside the text editor.
