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!

Heads Up: This is the documentation for Joomla 3

We recommend using the Documentation for Joomla 4!

It is more up-to-date and extensive. Most of it applies retrospectively to Joomla 3.
