Get upgraded from Joomla 1.5/2.5 to 3.X!

Better security, improved functionality and more future proof: three quick reasons why you should upgrade your old Joomla installation today. We can update Joomla for you.

Joomla 1.5/2.5 to 3.5 migration

If your website is still on Joomla version 1.5 or 2.5 it's time to update to version 3.5.

Joomla 1.5 + Joomla 2.5 has reached EOL (End Of Life ) and is no longer updated. This means that are no longer any security updates released for Joomla 1.5 or 2.5, which could put your site at risk to hackers.

At redWEB we recommend upgrading to 3.5.

Here is why you should upgrade to Joomla 3.5 now

As mentioned before there may be security issues with Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 but another important consideration is the functionality of Joomla 3.5. Compared to the 1.5 you get:

  • Greater flexibility - Sections are removed in favor of categories in unlimited levels. So you are no longer locked to the section /category/article, but can have for example: category/category/category/article.
  • Better user accounts - The access control system has changed drastically, and you can create custom user groups and define the access levels different groups should have.
  • Quick Update - Built in updating of the Joomla core and the extensions that support this new functionality. You will be notified via an icon in the control panel and can update with a few clicks.
  • Fast restructuring - Copying and moving various topics can now be done in batch process where many can be moved simultaneously.
  • Multi Language - Multi-language capability is enhanced and you can now run multiple languages without additional extensions, installing language packs directly through the administration.
  • Better templates - Templates are improved and template styles can now be used, instead of several templates.
  • Intuitive Interface - User interface is improved, and now you can for example Save, Save and Create New or Copy articles.
  • Better SEO - SEO has been developed and unicode can be used in URLs and metadata can be added to categories.
  • Better searching - Smart Search was added which provides an advanced search feature.
  • Remove 404 pages - Redirect function with the opportunity to redirect old invalid URLs

Be sure to use the latest extensions
