Migrating from Joomla 3.10 to 4

Weblink Logos

These are the steps to follow specifically for Weblink Logos or Weblink Logos Pro 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 Weblink Logos or Weblink Logos Pro. 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 'Auto Clear' in the search box. Disable the plugin if there is one found.

Pro Type 'Weblink Logos' in the search box.

Disable the plugin, if enabled:

  • Quick Icon - Weblink Logos Pro

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.

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.

Download the Auto Clear Cached Image plugin, if previously used.

Under Joomla 4

Go to System -> Update section. Click on Extensions. Check for updates. Ignore the SimplifyYourWeb extensions library, it will be updated while updating Weblink Logos free or pro. But you need to update the Weblinks Extension Package.

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

Install the free package Weblink Logos or the pro package Weblink Logos Pro for Joomla 4.

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

  • System - Simplify Your Web - Auto Clear Cached Image

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

Type 'Auto Clear' in the search box. Enable the plugin if previously enabled and used.

Pro Type 'Weblink Logos' in the search box.

Re-enable the plugin if you had it enabled under Joomla 3.10:

  • Quick Icon - Weblink Logos Pro

Re-position module instances if you are using a new template.

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.

If you have created the files (minimized or not) common_user_styles.css and/or substitute_styles.css, they have been moved automatically.
