What? Nothing! is a Joomla! system plugin that not only changes the way you will experience Joomla!, but is known to also alter the way you perceive life in general. It achieves this by doing nothing at all.

Without going too much into detail, the amount of philosophy behind What? Nothing! goes far beyond the amount of programming that has gone into creating it and bringing it into the world.

What? Nothing! has received praise from many users who claim it to be one of, if not THE, most stable Joomla! extensions available.

Setting up What? Nothing!

Be sure to adjust these settings any time you feel it can do nothing more effectively.

What? Nothing! does nothing... just nothing!

Are you just like me and sometimes just want to do nothing, nothing at all?

Well, that brought me to this revolutionary plugin for Joomla! All the plugins that are available do all sorts of stuff - there they are, all busy doing their thing. Adding functionality here. Manipulating html output there. Making your website better and better.

Well, that's all good and nice, but it's so much activity!
That's exactly where this plugin comes in...

What does it do? Absolutely nothing!
