Looking for something?
Joomla 2.5 is the current stable release. We recommend you use this version until the next LTS (long term support) release. Joomla 3.5 is due out in March of 2014. Each LTS release will be valid for 2 years. If you want to experiment, follow the steps below.
Please log in to your Joomla 2.5 administration and click on Components -> Joomla! Update. Now click on Options on the top right and select Short Term Support for Update Server. Just click on Install the Update.
To update the template you have to download the latest Joomla 3.0 template from our site and replace the template folder of your current 2.5 template /templates/templatename with the new one. You can also install the new template through the template manager. If you are like most, you have already editied many files. See below for another method to preserve these changes.
No. In fact, the only difference between Warp templates for 2.5 and 3.0+ is the /warp folder. When you are ready to upgrade to Joomla 3.0/3.5, you can simply replace your warp folder with the 3.5 compatible version of the Warp folder and you are done! All your customizations will remain and it should take a total of about 5 minutes. Hooray!
To do this, download any 3.0+ compatible template. Extract it and use the warp folder to replace yours.
