Joomla 1.7 Reach Alpha Status

Joomla 1.7 Reach Alpha Status


I will be fully supporting Joomla! 1.7 and hopefully be also able to migrate my whole site away from 1.5 to 1.6 to 1.7 in a row in the next coming weeks (10 July – #Joomla 1.7 GA released)

I will in the coming days test all my extension against 1.7 and set up a demo site at

Note: I always recommend to all users asking for support to move away from #Joomla! 1.0 and to use the latest versions of #Joomla!

Do not wait, invest regularly time to update your Joomla!  instead of migrating every 2 years..

Do not alter the core file of Joomla! updates will be a real pain then!

Ask in #Joomla! forums for help: there are ways of changing Joomla! behaviors without changing code by using extensions.
