Joomla 5 Notice

Today, October 31, 2023, we released Visforms 4.4.0.
We are pleased to announce that our Joomla extension Visforms is now compatible with Joomla 5.

Our Joomla extension Spambotcheck is currently not yet compatible with Joomla 5 and the installation cannot be started on Joomla 5. We expect to release a release with Joomla 5 compatibility shortly.

For all who are still updateing from Joomla 3 to Joomla 4: Joomla 4 Migration instructions are available here:

There is now a separate Documentation for Visforms for Joomla 4!

Visforms 2.0.0 beta released

Completly revised version of Visforms for Joomla! 2.5

Includes intensive code refactoring, bugfixes and new features, according to feature requested on our Forum. This version will be the basis for adaptations to make Visforms work with Joomla! 3.5.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I made major changes on code and database for this release. I tested very very thorough but as it was only me who tested for now. Therefore please make a full backup of your Joomla! installation including the database before updating. It's a very good idea to test the update on a test system before you use it on a live site!. Please note that, if you have made any code changes to Visforms, they will be overwritten by the update.

Please help to improve Visforms. Let me know if you error in this version of Visforms. You can use our forum for that. THANK YOU!
