Good joomla/mambo component or module for CJ?

I did a search on this forum but didn't find a thread for this;-)
For those of you running joomla/mambo affiliate site, will you share your knowledge and experience of good extension/component/module for CJ program? Specifically, if I want to display some content relevant ads on the sidebar, preferably stacked logos or specific products, how would you do it?

I'd recommend running a phpadnews ad server and possibly carving out 'zones' in your joomla site template to run the ads into. With this setup, you can manage all of your affiliate links in a central location yet feed pages or websites all over the place with ads like the big boys do. If you don't want to run your ads into your template, you could just grab the html module and set the position to fit somewhere that makes sense. The standard joomla banner module doesn't cut it when you want to go the next step, so I wouldn't bother with it either.

Are you trying to use the HTML links or the Java links from CJ?
Affiliate-Assist.com is a Joomla site and we run CJ ads in our banner rotator just fine.

I was searching for similar thing the other day and would like to hear some input. There seemed to be a lot of security discussions with CMS, so I kind of gave up, but would like to hear some fresh view points. Debbie, I think you stated you steer clear of CMS because of this (in an old post)? Are there alternatives? Hope this in not a hijack, but an add-on to the OP.

There are security issues for websites no matter what platform you use, when delivering a database driven site.
Joomla works very hard to ensure a safe platform, and most of the issues come into play with 3rd party components as opposed to the core Joomla script.
You can learn more about that here: New Joomla Version or the 3rd party security forum here: 3rd Party Joomla Issues
CMS is meant, of course, to make publishing a website easier. If you can do it on your own, however, without a CMS, it may be the best route to go.

And more diredtly to the OP, what would be nice is for someone to deliver a datafeed component for Joomla. I've reached out to the J! community on a number of occasions, without success.
If there's any good PHP programmers out there interested in developing a commercial (i.e. not free) component to handle this, drop me a line. I have one sketched out ready to go. I just can't program my way out of a paper bag

Have you ever placed a freelance job out on elance? There are other sites as well to find someone to do custom coding.
Your idea sounds good. Worth a shot.

Thanks for asking. There's actually several projects we are considering submitting to the Tech school here for inclusion in their Thesis program. And this is one of them. Gives a kid a crack at doing something interesting, and we get work from someone who still has the cutting edge stuff fresh in his/her mind.

I too have been curious about/interested in Joomla as you can see by
this thread I started and by my participation here
Using Joomla would be an entirely diffferent way of website creation for me.
So, Noth, are you saying that the manual Dreamweaver way is still viable?

When my Joomla site got hammered, it wasn't because of Joomla itself, but a weak 3rd party forum add-on. My search logs revealed that hackers were targetting sites with this add-on by actually googling the code in the module itself.
That wouldn't happen with a home grown site...
