DropEditor: Installation

1. Install

Our component is compatible with Joomla 3.9 and 4.x. All the features and 3rd party integrations are included in all memberships.
In order to install our component, you have to download the extension .zip file and use standard Joomla installer.




Then click on Browse > Upload and Install button, component, modules and plugins will be installed activated by default.

2. Update & automatic updater

In order to update the extension, you can install a new version over the old one by downloading the ZIP file from JoomUnited or using the automatic updater (recommended).




The automatic updater, which pushes the update notification, is embedded in the Joomla extension you've installed. So you'll get notified like any other extension in the dashboard or using the menu: System > Update > Extensions.

Login to your account to update

You need to login to your JoomUnited account to update all your JoomUnited Joomla extensions. In order to login access to the main configuration of the component then clicks on the Live update tab. At the bottom, you'll find a login button.

The button will turn to connected status, congrats! You can now update all the JoomUnited extensions on this website! If your membership is expired you'll get a renew link and a text that explains that.




Note: One single login will allow you to update all the JoomUnited extensions (regarding your membership). Login won't expire unless you disconnect it.
