Form Fields[edit]

Update Source[edit]

Configure where Joomla gets its update information from.

Update Channel

  • Default: is the recommended setting to stay on the latest release. This ensures that you still receive all released updates.
  • Joomla Next: switch from one major release to next major release (Joomla 3.x to Joomla 4.x).
  • Testing: is used for testing Joomla releases prior to their release as 'Stable'. With this setting nightly builds will be shown until a Beta or Release Candidate is available. Only use this setting on test sites.
    • Minimum Stability: (Development/Alpha/Beta/Release Candidate/Stable) The minimum stability of the extension updates you would like to see. Development is the least stable, Stable is production quality. If an extension doesn't specify a level it is assumed to be Stable.
  • Custom URL: This setting allows a custom update server to be used. Only use this setting on test sites.
    • Minimum Stability: (Development/Alpha/Beta/Release Candidate/Stable) The minimum stability of the extension updates you would like to see. Development is the least stable, Stable is production quality. If an extension doesn't specify a level it is assumed to be Stable.
    • Custom URL: This field is used to point to a custom XML update source URL.
