Is your Joomla! website looking a little rough and out of date?
From December 2012, Joomla! 1.5 and from December 2014 Joomla! 2.5 versions are no longer supported or maintained by the Joomla! project. This means that it they have already become an unstable and potentially insecure solution for your website - more so as the underlying server software is upgraded.
We are repairing several hacked 1.5/2.5 sites each month - and if you're still using a Joomla! 1.0 site - then we really need to talk.
By upgrading to Joomla 3.x you can take advantage of many new features, over 300 bug fixes, and a more secure and stable platform.
Joomla! is now easily multilingual. No more meddling with extensions or core hacks - Joomla! 3.x has a simple translation system straight out of the box.
The automated notification of Joomla! core and extension updates is a new core feature that simplifies site maintenance and management of updates. Available as a quick button on the administrative control panel of your Joomla! website, it enables administrators to update a site to the latest stable Joomla! release with just a single click. When you go for Joomla!3, you'll get mobile-ready as standard.
Why upgrade your Joomla! site?
- More secure platform
- Over 300 bug fixes
- Stable platform for future development
- Lots of new features like Smart Search, built-in Captcha, improved SEO, better mobile responsiveness and multiple article categories
What do I get with a Joomla! migration?
The latest version of Joomla!, either in 2.5 or 3.x releases depending upon your current extension inventory and all modules, extensions and templates updated*
How much will it cost to migrate my Joomla! site?
A data-only migration from an earlier release without any commercial extensions or custom coding starts at £650. We will prepare a detailed quote based on your site and alert you to any potential problems before we start. An basic update starts at £450.
We can peform a data-only migration where we just move the textual data/images and you style the template or a full migration which involves styling a new template to get you going quickly. Ask us for advice about each option.
How long will it take?
Depending upon the size and complexity of the site - generally anything from a single day to 14 days.
* The Not So Small Print - Not all extensions have a newer version so you may have to stay with the supported version or chose another extension. Commercial extensions will require an additional payment to purchase the newer version. Custom code is not included but can be quoted separately. Read our migration guide - it's really helpful.
