Joomla 1.5 Upgrade - Joomla 1.5 Migration Services - How to Upgrade from Joomla 1.0 PDF Print E-mail

The benefits of upgrading your old Joomla 1.0 website to the latest Joomla 1.5 website are many.  However, with time & financial restrictions or with lack of quality vendors who can migrate your website the right way without issues, you may have been putting off the task of upgrading to the latest Joomla working release.


Limitations of Joomla 1.0:

  • It is no longer supported, meaning your website has security vulnerabilities
  • Newer plugins, extensions, templates, modules, & components no longer offer versions to support Joomla 1.0 – this means you are missing out on some of the coolest templates or most useful tools out there to really make your website more powerful and effective marketing tool
  • Many of the search engine optimization (SEO) tools for Joomla CMS do not work with Joomla 1.0 – this gives competing websites with up to date Joomla a better chance to rank higher in search results


How We Ensure Proper Migration to Joomla 1.5:

  • We plan ahead.  Based on your Joomla website’s unique needs, we look at and map out the best way to migrate to Joomla 1.5.
  • We try to create continuity in and not to disrupt functional & useful elements of the website.  We take a look at existing plugins, modules, & components installed and see how we can implement the same functionality on Joomla 1.5.
  • Top usage pages receive special attention – where possible, we look at keeping the URL’s of the top usage pages the same in Joomla 1.5 as in Joomla 1.0.  Though SEF Joomla, Joomla 1.5 SEO services may not  be part of our service agreement for your website, we try to keep your existing inbound link juices intact by keeping the URL’s of your top pages the same as before.
  • We go for the best implementation by giving suggestions and ideas for plugins, modules, components, & extensions that may be better fit than what you had in mind.
  • We are experienced.  One of our latest Joomla 1.5 migration work included one of Mongolia’s top travel agencies, Nomadic  Journeys, a website with hundreds of pages and the infamous Joomla SEF killer issue “SEF submenu” & “SEF menu” (try searching for these terms on Google, you get nothing but Joomla results).


So, if you are stuck with Joomla 1.0 and its limited functionality and wish to upgrade to the latest Joomla 1.5 working release, give us a call or send us an email or a message.

We are confident we can deliver a quality service for your Joomla website.
