This is one of the most important upgrades to have done on any website – Joomla 3.9 and above. This is why we need to make sure you are up to date before going ahead with this upgrade, and a good place to start is the Joomla Extensions Pack. Here are some important things to know about the Joomla Extension Pack:
Extensions which run in 3.7 will run in 3.8. Extensions which run in 3.8 will run in Joomla 3.4. If they are not using any outdated features, extensions which run in Joomla 3.4 will be the easiest thing to update. The older versions of Joomla may have been updated with more recent features, but it may be difficult to find them.
Extensions which run in Joomla 2.4 will run in Joomla 3.5. If they are not upgraded, extensions which run in Joomla 3.4 will be impossible to maintain. The older versions may have been updated, but it may be difficult to find them and the chances of your extension running in a new version are slim.
Extensions which run in Joomla 2.4 will run in Joomla 3.4. These extensions should not be upgraded unless they are running in a new version, but some extensions will be updated for backwards compatibility and then kept on the server. Others will be moved onto the server and updated.
Extensions which run in Joomla 2.3 will not be supported. There are many extensions that were made by other companies that will still be around when Joomla is out of support. You can use these extensions and it is unlikely that you will encounter any problems with them.
Joomla will never change its interface. You will not be able to find any new modules which run in Joomla without updating the modules that are already there. It is easy to just add a new one to Joomla, but it is harder to put the existing ones in. If you need to get an upgrade and the old versions are no longer supported, you may have to look to third party modules to get the feature that you want.
Extensions in Joomla will only support modules that you can download from the Joomla Extensions Pack website. You can find many of them online, but you may have trouble finding the ones you need. Sometimes the site has outdated versions of the modules available.
Some users upgrade their extensions manually. Other extensions will be moved onto the server after their original developer stops producing them, and you will have to wait until the next release for them to come out. When you start a new website, you will have to make sure that you are up to date with the latest versions. This is especially important if you have to provide the website with some basic functionality, but it is not necessary if you just want to create a fresh looking website.
Some sites which are running in Joomla will offer downloads from their servers. They will then have to be downloaded into your computer first before you can use them.
Once you have your new extensions installed, you will have to update them. To do this, you will have to login to your account and click on the “Updater”. It will take you to a screen where you will have to select the version of the extension that you want to update.
Next, you will need to select the version that you want to update. and follow the instructions that will be provided by the webmaster. Most of the time, you will have to click on the “Change” button to start the update process.
The next thing to do is to test to see if your update went well. If the update worked, go back into the “Settings” area of your Joomla page and you will see a button that says, “Download to My Server”. Click on this button, wait a few seconds, and you will have the new version of the extension.
