What Joomla Extensions do you Upgrade?
We have experience working with most established Joomla extensions. If an extension does not have a Joomla 3.x version, we will install a similar extension and manually migrate your existing data into it. Below is a quick list of extensions we work with the most often. Items with an asterick (*) next to them are ones we often substitute:
Blogs, CCK, and Directories: K2, ZOO, EasyBlog, SOBI2*, Mosets Tree, DOCman, PhocaDownload
User Interaction: RSForms Pro, Chronoforms, Blue Flame Forms*, JReviews, JComments, JNews, Kunena Forum, Agora Forum*
Slideshow/Galleries: PhocaGallery, FrontPage Slideshow, RokStories, RokSprocket, Widgetkit, JA Slideshow
Events/Calendar: JEvents, GCalendar, DT Register, JCal Pro, MijoEvents, Simple Calendar
eCommerce Shopping Carts: Virtuemart*, AceShop, MijoShop, Simple Caddy, HikaShop, RedShop
How do I find out what version of Joomla I am on now?
The easiest way is to go to the administrator side of your website which is your site address and then /administrator (example http://www.mysite.com/administrator). Match what you see to the picture below:
|Joomla 1.0||Joomla 1.5||Joomla 1.7/2.5||Joomla 3.x|
Do I have to change hosting companies?
NO. We build the new site on your existing hosting; we just need your logins. Before starting the project, we will ensure your current hosting meets the minimum requirements needed for Joomla 3.x and let you know if there are any problems.
Will the site be down during the upgrade?
The site will not be down at all. We build your website in a subfolder so you can review and approve before we replace the current site.
What if my current site is hacked?
Not a problem. We build a fresh install of Joomla so you will not have problems with your new site. For us to migrate over your content, we need access to any of these things: the old site, your hosting account, or an archived backup of the old site.
