A First Look at Joomla 4

A First Look at Joomla 4

Here at Joomlashack we've started to get questions about Joomla 4.

We've even had people asking us why we don't have training available for Joomla 4 yet!

So, it's time to give people an overview of the progress being made on Joomla 4. What's the current state of this new version? What features will be included? Will it be easy to update?

Let's dive in and answer those questions.

The Wright Framework Works with Joomla 4!

Hey, Wright (Almost) Works with Joomla 4!

Here at Joomlashack, we use the Wright Framework to build great Joomla templates.

Wright currently works perfectly with Joomla 3 websites.

However, we had no idea whether it would work on Joomla 4. After all, Joomla 4 isn't even in alpha yet. And future Joomla updates have always been complicated. Surely the move to Joomla 4 would be difficult?

We were wrong. Moving Wright to Joomla 4 was surprisingly easy.

We are delighted to publish the 4th major class in our Joomla development series. These 4 classes now cover all the key areas of building Joomla extensions.

We've worked with Cory Webb, a Joomla developer since 2005, to create this series of 70 videos.

This 4th class is called "How to Develop Joomla Components. Part 2: the Frontend".

In these videos, you'll finish building the todo list component that was started in Part 1.
