Joomla 5 Notice

We are pleased to announce that as of January 29, 2024, all of our Joomla extensions are compatible with Joomla 5.

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 and for Visforms for Joomla 5!

Visforms 5.0.1 - Feature Release for Joomla 5

Today we released Visforms and Visforms Subscription 5.0.1. We are pleased that we were able to implement numerous feature requests and improvements that were brought to our attention via the forum.

The feature release had a particular focus on 'increasing effectiveness when working with Visforms'.

New features always mean extensive changes to the code. We test all changes very thoroughly. But despite everything, it's only us who are testing. That's why feature releases with many new features are always released as beta versions.

If you are interested in one or more of the new features and want to use this Visforms version, please test thoroughly before using it on a productive system!

We endeavor to correct any reported errors as quickly as possible.
