Joomla 4 Upgrades
Upgrade your Joomla Website to Joomla 4!
Joomla 4 is the latest version of the Joomla content management system. It is a major update from Joomla 3 and introduces a number of new features and improvements.
One of the most important changes in Joomla 4 is the move to a new framework, Joomla Framework 2.5. This new framework provides a number of benefits, including improved performance and stability, and a more modern codebase.
If you are currently running a Joomla 3 website, it is important to start planning your move to Joomla 4. The Joomla 3 series will reach end of life in August 2023, at which point security fixes and updates will no longer be released.
Moving to Joomla 4 will ensure that your website remains secure and up-to-date, and takes advantage of the latest improvements and features.
Help Updating Joomla 3 to Joomla 4
If your Joomla website is running on an older version of the software, you may not be able to update it to the latest version. In this case, you may need to migrate your site to a new server or rebuild it from scratch.
At Revibe Digital, we offer a migration/update service for Joomla 3 websites. We can help you move your site to a new server or rebuild it from scratch, so you can continue to use the latest version of Joomla.
Not every Joomla 3 website can be updated to Joomla 4, in fact, there are several factors that may dictate if a move is possible, for example:
- You use Joomla 3 only plugins. examples include (K2, Fabrik).
- Your template isn’t compatible, If you have bought a ThemeForest template, or used one of the default Joomla 3 templates you may not be able to update.
- You have custom code, or the website has been built badly.
If you’re not sure whether your website can be updated or needs to be migrated, contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
Joomla 3 Security Only Mode
As Joomla 3 and the developers prepare to shift focus from the old outdated Joomla 3 and move on to Joomla 4, the people at Joomla have set an end of support or end of life for version 3 CMS at 17th August 2023, considering we are still at this time 1 year away from that date you’re probably wondering why you are getting the warning at the top of your control panel?
We have a whole article explaining Security only mode here. Find out more!
Joomla 3 End-of-life
The “end of life” for Joomla 3 is actually the end of its support cycle. Joomla 3 will no longer receive security updates or new features after August 2023. So, if you’re still using Joomla 3, you’ll need to upgrade to a newer version before that date in order to keep your site secure and up-to-date.
Consider a Joomla to WordPress Migration
Are you using Joomla and considering migrating to WordPress? Here are 3 compelling reasons to make the switch:
1. WordPress is more user-friendly than Joomla.
If you’re not a developer or particularly tech-savvy, WordPress is a much more user-friendly platform than Joomla. The interface is simpler and easier to navigate, and there’s a vast library of resources and support available if you need help.
2. WordPress is more popular than Joomla.
WordPress powers a huge chunk of the internet – over 30% of all websites! Joomla, on the other hand, only has a 2.8% market share. This popularity means that there’s a large community of users and developers who can offer support and resources and a vast ecosystem of plugins and themes to choose from.
3. WordPress is more SEO-friendly than Joomla.
Search Engine Optimization is critical for any website that wants to rank well in search engines like Google. WordPress is built with SEO in mind, whereas Joomla is not. There are also a lot of great plugins and resources available for WordPress users to help them further optimize their sites.
We got the lot, if you need it we have it!
