Joomla 3 Support is Coming to an End: What Should You Do Before Your Support Expires?

Joomla 3 Support is Coming to an End

Joomla 4 is the most recent version of the most popular web content management system in the world. With so much popularity, it's not surprising that Joomla 3 support is coming to an end. 

What Should I Know About Joomla 3 Support Termination?

Joomla 3.10 will be the last version of Joomla 3 to receive official Joomla support and updates. This means that any bugs or security issues discovered in this version of Joomla will be ignored by the developers.

This will not happen until August 2023, so you have some time before your site will no longer receive updates and security patches. You can use this time to plan for migration, or if you prefer, you can continue to use Joomla 3 with support until August!

What Platform Should I Use to Move My Website?

After your Joomla 3 support expires, your site will be open for security risks. Until the end of May 2023, you can have your site transferred to the new Joomla 4 platform at a very attractive price, but  it must be booked in to a date or this offer does not apply. After this time, your site will be done as soon as possible after you requesting it, but will be charged at full cost.

When Will the Assistance End?

Joomla 3 support will end on August 17, 2023. The Joomla team has announced that all users must migrate to Joomla 4 before that time in order to continue receiving malware and software fixes.

However, although we will continue to host, you will not be covered for free restore if your site is hacked due to security risks.

Should You Use Joomla 4?

As Joomla 3 support expires, you may consider switching platforms. If you're not sure which platform to use, check in with us.

You may also want to consider migrating to Joomla 4 being the easiest to complete for you rather than reinvent the wheel by making a complete platform change. Click here to learn more about the interface and features.


We are excited to join the Joomla family with the release of Joomla 4. However, we recognize that many of our customers continue to use Joomla 3, and we want to make the transition as easy as possible for them.

Save money, book the site in for upgrade prior to June 2023, and let the team at BizzDesign make the transition smooth for you. With this offer is the chance to make some changes to the content on your site also and not pay any extra.

As a result, we will continue to provide support and security updates for Joomla 3 until its end of life, at which point we will begin only supporting Joomla 4. You can contact us on  04 0980 1950

for migration advice or via the enquiry form for assistance with your migration needs before it is too late.
