Web357 Framework

The Web357 Framework Joomla! plugin is a required helper tool that is used by all the Web357 extensions. Within the plugin files, we have included code and PHP functions that allow the plugin updates to be applied only in one place, and ensure that they are rolled out automatically to any external site that is using the Web357 extensions.
