How to access Joomla plugin parameters anywhere inside Joomla code?

When developing a new Joomla extension or making changes to existing extension, you might need to access plugin parameters of a Joomla plugin outside the plugin code. There can be cases where you want to access plugin parameters in some Joomla module or component. Now the question is - How to get plugin parameters outside the plugin code?


Here is a snippet of a Joomla code in PHP that let's you access plugin parameters anywhere inside Joomla.

// Get plugin 'my_plugin' of plugin type 'my_plugin_type'
$plugin = JPluginHelper::getPlugin('my_plugin_type', 'my_plugin');

// Check if plugin is enabled
if ($plugin)
	// Get plugin params
	$pluginParams = new JRegistry($plugin->params);

	$param1 = $pluginParams->get('param1');
	$param2 = $pluginParams->get('param2');
	$param3 = $pluginParams->get('param3');


Wasn’t that easy?
I hope this helps! Thanks for reading!

Next BIG thing in Smartphone & Desktop Apps is here! “AppCarvers”

Techjoomla has been a platform for sales and support for apps developed by our sister concern AppCarvers (formerly called Apptitude) till now. We have released quite a few apps to date. Notably the EasySocial App, the Easyblog app and of course the Event Manager app for our very own JTicketing are some of the releases that we have made and are improving so far. 

AppCarvers and Techjoomla are both brands under our parent company Tekdi Technologies. While Techjoomla was born back in 2009, AppCarvers came around 2011 (then called apptitude). Initially we had only focused on providing Application development services and had some of our own products (Reportoise being the first). Getting into Joomla based product was a natural expansion for us and Techjoomla became the platform for those apps. 

However as the activity around AppCarvers has been growing with your love and awesome response its becoming difficult for us to handle the support, development of the apps on one platform at Techjoomla. Keeping our efficiency and customer satisfaction in mind, we thought of having a dedicated independent platform for it. Thus, AppCarvers was born. is a separate business we have launched only for smartphone, desktop and HTML5 Applications.

What’s new?

  • Dedicated Development team focused on apps which will ensure that you guys get better quality products and timely updates! 
  • Developer Support. Once you order, you’ll be surprised to see that the chef himself is going to serve you at the table. So, immediate action will be taken on your problems.
  • Separate Accounts, Purchases, Tickets. All the Existing users have been migrated to the new site with their purchases and new support tickets will also be opened.

What’s old?

The AppCarvers team will work with the same integration and involvement with the Techjoomla team and the Joomla community and keep churning out awesome products and features for you.  We will follow the same Open Source principles and licensing that we hold dear to our heart and set us apart!

Joomla 3.4 is here !

Its been a long wait since Joomla 3.3 was released but Joomla 3.4 is finally here and it brings with it some great features.

3.4 is the first release as per the new release strategy and road map published by the Joomla Production leadership team (PLT) last year. One click updates have got easier for over the years and that's one thing that I hope will solve Joomla's version fragmentation issue (not too different from the one we see in Android). This means that the Joomla 3.4 update is just a click away for those of you on 3.3 or older versions of the CMS. If you are on 2.5 the task isn't that much harder but you do need to take some extra care.

For the 1.5s and the 1.0s it will be a migration but frankly if you are still on that old of an version its about time you did it ! The Joomla update team has done a spectacular job in providing some great documentation, tutorials and videos to help you get updated. Check it all out here !

Our parent company offers professional, managed migration and upgrade services. If you are looking for help in getting your sites upgraded, just drop us a line by filling our contact form.

New in Joomla 3.4

Now let's jump to what Joomla 3.4 has in store for us ! With over 700 issues closed on the tracker, this version brings even more stability to the 3x series. Plus User feedback and contributions have got plenty of attention too !

 Front-end Module Editing

Joomla has always been perceived as comparatively difficult due to its Admin area and content managers have asked for more power on the front end rather than having to keep going back and forth. Joomla 3.4 takes frontend management to a whole new level.
