II. User Migration & new Login

  1. We have migrate all users to our Unified Portal.
  2. The old login can still be accessed at :
  3. If you have ever had an account at JoomlArt, Gavick, JomSocial, iJoomla, JoomlaBamboo or DTH Development, then only your billing and plans are imported into existing user profile (linked to user email NOT the username).

II (a). User Migration workflow :

  1. Our Unified Portal has users from JoomlArt, Gavick, JomSocial, iJoomla, Joomlabamboo and DTH Development.
  2. When importing Shape5 users, we match the emails to see if the user already exists. If yes, then we import only the membership info.
  3. Only one password is retained in the new system and that password would be from the first imported data, merge and compare will only import membership, plan info and permissions.
  4. Example: If you have an account on JoomlArt and also on Shape5 with the same email. Then the username and password of JoomlArt will work for you. Only the membership info from Shape5 will be merged on import.

II (b). Resolving Login issues :

  1. Try resetting your password first.
  2. If it still does not work, then possibly your username was auto updated by system to avoid duplicate usernames. The merge happens based on emails only and there are high chances of clashing usernames.
  3. Send in a quick email to [email protected]
  4. Live Chat (right bottom)

III. Support

  1. We provide support in our Unified Support Central. You can now ask your Shape5 questions in our Support Central.
  2. Developer members of Shape5 also have complimentary access to our ticket system.
  3. The old Shape5 forum will be made read only.
  4. JoomlArt’s Support team will take over Shape5 support duties from 15th August onwards, till then Johan and Mike would be providing support.
