How to find extensions for Joomla 1.5

As you probably know, Joomla 1.5 has reached end-of-life. It's no longer supported, and you shouldn't use it. OK?

That said - there are situations where the use of Joomla 1.5 is inevitable. For instance, I regularly come across people who want me to help them port their site to the latest version of Joomla. Sometimes, the site can't be upgraded immediately. Perhaps there's a financial issue at hand. Other times, it can be that the site is so complex and full of outdated extensions and special solutions that it's not possible to migrate without building new components or find alternatives. This can take time, and while you find the solutions the site needs to stay secure. 

Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 30, 2013:

  • Joomlacode Update
  • Joomla in a box
  • Make in an impression with the Profile template

Are we taking care of our own?

Joomla is a project that relies on volunteers. All the work being done on a daily basis in the project is based on the fact that thousands of people around the globe spends their time on Joomla. They code, test patches, report bugs, write documentation, market and promote Joomla to new and existing users, translate, plan and conduct events. These are only some of the many things that benefit us as a community and Joomla as a project. This is, in fact, the premise of an open-source community-driven project. Without the volunteers, Joomla would die. Simple as that.

The real end-of-life for Joomla 1.5?

Last week, Alan Langford wrote a blog post called When Should You Upgrade Your Joomla 1.5 Site? In my opinion, the post was spot on. It addressed some of the reasons people post-pone upgrading their Joomla sites. He also highlighted the important reasons for upgrading to a newer version of Joomla.

Why are you still reading this, by the way? Go upgrade your Joomla 1.5 sites now. As Alan said: Seriously!

In this post, I'll go through some aspects of upgrading a site from 1.5 to a later Joomla version.
