Joomlashack Products and Joomla 4

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 were 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.

Extensions that will continue with Joomla 4

All of these extensions are ready for Joomla 4 and we will continue to support them. These extensions were chosen by you, the Joomlashack users. Enough customers are paying and using these extensions to justify the work involved in updating them for Joomal 4.

Finally, we are continuing to provide download access, but are ending customer support for lifetime subscriptions.

Summary of these changes

Joomlashack has been in business since 2005.

Many, many Joomla companies have not survived nearly as long as Joomlashack.

It's no secret that being in the Joomla business is difficult in 2023. There were a lot of tough decisions in this list, but we made them with one goal in mind. That goal is to support as many of our customers, as well as we can, for as long as we can.
