Joomla 3 support was officially retired by the Joomla team in August 2023. The Joomla community is moving forward with Joomla 4, and soon, Joomla 5. In another post, we outlined our future plans for Joomla 4. In this post, I'll look backwards and explain our plans for Joomla 3. In that original Joomla 4 post, I said this: "[Our] goal is to support as many of our customers, as well as we can, for as long as we can." We still have a good number of Joomlashack customers using Joomla 3. So to meet our goal, we've decided to support those Joomla 3 users for at least one more year ..read more

Joomlashack Products and Joomla 4

Over the last two years, we've been hard at work upgrading Joomlashack products for Joomla 4. Some of the extension updates were done in an afternoon. Some of the biggest extensions took over a year to update. As we learned more about the Joomla 4 update process, we came to decisions about each product. We evaluated how many people we using it, how difficult it was to upgrade, and whether the product still had value for users in 2023. Here is a list of the Joomlashack products which we will continue to develop and support, plus a separate list of those that are discontinued ..read more

OSpam-a-not is the easiest way to protect your Joomla site from spam bots filling out your forms. The OSpam-a-not plugin uses a clever and unobtrusive technique to protect your forms from a flood of spam. We created OSpam-a-not because we needed better Joomla spam prevention. We use OSpam-a-not ourselves, so we maintain it and update it regularly. OSpam-a-not supports all the forms in the Joomla core and many from third-party extensions. For a long time, there was only a Free version of OSpam-a-not. This limited how much support we gave to the product. So this week, we've released a Pro versi ..read more

Some Thoughts on Joomla Migrations and Joomla 5

This week we were really happy to announce the release of JCal Pro for Joomla 4. It took us around a year to update this extension. Overall, it has taken us nearly two years to prepare our extensions for Joomla 4, and we're not finished yet. I wrote a little about this process in our 2022 review: "We found that it was possible to move a simple extension from Joomla 3 to Joomla 4 in a couple of hours. Our first upgrades were easy, and we migrated several basic extensions in one day. With bigger extensions, the upgrade time increased exponentially. Our medium-sized extensions took three or four ..read more
