Migrating from Joomla 3.10 to 4

Article Details

These are the steps to follow specifically for Article Details or Article Details Profiles to experience the smoothest migration possible.

There is no migration path from the free version under Joomla 3.10 to the pro version in Joomla 4. Migrate the free version from Joomla 3.10 to Joomla 4 first, then under Joomla 4, upgrade to the pro version.

Under Joomla 3.10

First make sure you have an up-to-date version of Article Details or Article Details Profiles. It's important that you have installed the latest version. You can download the latest free version or download the latest pro version and install.

Go to Extensions -> Plugins.

Type 'Article Details' in the search box.

Disable the plugins, if enabled:

  • Content - Article Details
  • Pro Content - Article Details Profiles
  • Pro Quick Icon - Article Details Profiles

This will remove potential update issue warnings and prevent issues once under Joomla 4 until the extension is re-installed.

Go to Components -> Joomla! Update. Click on Check for Updates. You will see update pre-checks.

Update information unavailable
Files and extensions without update information

The SimplifyYourWeb Extensions Library will be updated automatically. Ignore warnings about the library, if any.

Prior to the move to Joomla 4

Download the free version of the extension for Joomla 4 or the pro version and all add-ons (information types) you need for your design(s).

If you have handmade calendars under /plugins/content/articledetailsprofiles/styles/calendars, they will be deleted during the migration. Backup those files and re-inject them into media/plg_content_articledetailsprofiles/styles/calendars and media/plg_content_articledetailsprofiles/images/calendars once under Joomla 4.

Under Joomla 4

Go to System -> Install section. Click on Extensions.

Install the free package Article Details or the pro package Article Details Profiles for Joomla 4.

Re-install the plugin, if previously installed under Joomla 3.10:

  • Pro Article Details - My Details

Go to System -> Manage section. Click on Plugins.

Type 'Article Details' in the search box.

Re-enable the plugins if you had them enabled under Joomla 3.10:

  • Content - Article Details
  • Pro Content - Article Details Profiles
  • Pro Quick Icon - Article Details Profiles

Make sure the Bootstrap compatibility of the extension is set properly and complies with the new template. If the extension's compatibility was previously set to Joomla and that the new template is using Bootstrap 5, packaged in Joomla, you are good to go!

Remove or update the template overrides for this extension, unless your template is different under Joomla 4, in which case you can leave the old overrides in place. If you need to use the overrides you had made under Joomla 3, update them and copy them over to the new template.

Pro Homemade add-ons (like information types), must be updated to work with Joomla 4.

Pro In case you have installed and use third-party custom fields from within the extension, these need to be updated as well.
