Products will not be updated to Joomla 5

We value your trust in our products, and we want to ensure you have the best experience possible. To maintain high standards of performance and security, we've made the decision not to update products from:

  • Shape5,
  • Joomlabamboo,
  • and DTHDevelopment

Outdated products can result in subpar performance and security risks when updated. Instead, we're focusing on creating new, cutting-edge solutions for Joomla 5 to enhance your websites and provide a better user experience.

Can I migrate from Joomla 4 to Joomla 5 beta3?

Joomla 4.4.x to 5.x is an Upgrade, not a migration

Many of you may be wondering if you can migrate your Joomla 4 site to Joomla 5. The answer is yes, but with an important caveat.

You will be able to migrate your Joomla 4 site to Joomla 5, but please be aware that Joomla 5 is currently in beta. As such, it is recommended only for testing and development purposes at this stage.
