Ever had that client that just can't quite grasp the bigger picture when you're building a site for them? Filler is a very simple Joomla! 1.5 extension that allows you to quickly add temporary menu items with meaningful text and/or images in order to help you demonstrate the structure of a completed site.

Then, when you're ready, simply edit the Filler menu item and change its type.

This tool is a must for any site designer.
