HubuMedia has been building websites using Joomla and WordPress for many years. We have a lot of clients on the Joomla content management system. Whenever a new release of Joomla is put out we typically do some testing before upgrading any websites. The most important part of keeping a Joomla website up to date is making sure all the plugins are up to date. The process is to go through the plugins on any Joomla website and update them first. Then, You can do your update from Joomla 3.5 to Joomla 3.6.
Before you do anything, Make Sure you do a FULL backup of your website first. HubuMedia does full offsite backups for all of our client’s websites weekly as part of our WordPress and Joomla maintenance plans.
Take a look at the new features in Joomla 3.6 here.
I am very interested in these new features and will be testing them out this week.
