What Extensions Should OSMap Support?

osmap google joomla

OSMap is the most popular sitemap extension for Joomla.

Currently, OSMap supports 7 extensions, using plugins from Joomlashack. These are Content, Weblinks, K2, Kunena, Mosets Tree, SobiPro, and Virtuemart.

Over 40 more extensions are supported, thanks to other developers.

We'd like to add official OSMap support for more extensions. Do you have any suggestions for extensions that are not yet covered, or that Joomlashack should support?

Ideally we're looking for extensions that meet these criteria:

  • Are used on a large number of Joomla sites
  • Contain a lot of valuable content
