In this post I will discuss whether or not you should update Joomla 3 Quickstarts to Joomla 4.
In short, no you should not.
The Quickstarts use a variety of plugins that are quite honestly, getting a bit long in the tooth. I've tried updating some Quickstarts locally and to be honest the results were less than stellar.
I am currently working on building a new Quickstart based on Joomla 4 here : http://joomla4.jomres.net/
It's currently a work in progress, I'm building a ton of new functionality for it (see the technical blog for more details) but until that's ready I really do recommend that if you want Jomres in Joomla 4 that then you should start with a fresh install.
What's that you say? You're stubborn and a glutton for punishment?
If you really, really want to update your quickstart site then you should do it in this order.
- Update Jomres
- Update it's plugins in the Jomres Plugin Manager
- Update other plugins
- Update Joomla
Remember, any large update should always be tested on a staging/development server that's a copy of your live site before attempting update on your live server and you should always backup backup backup.
