Dropfiles: Installation

1. Install

Our component is Joomla 3.x compatible. 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.

 

joomla-install

 

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 use the automatic updater (recommended).

 

dropfile-update

 

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: Extension > Manage > Update menu.

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 the main configuration of the component then clicks on the Live updates tab. On the right panel, you'll find a login button.

The text on button will be changed, 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 explaining that.
