  • Take a complete backup of your site using tools like 'Akeeba Backup' before installing or upgrading.
  • We have updated multiple Plugin Triggers to make Social Ads compatible with Joomla 4. So if you are using any custom plugins with old trigger names, you may need to update their code
  • We recommend NOT updating Social Ads to Joomla 4 compatible version on your sites if you are using other Techjoomla extensions which are not Joomla 4 compatibility yet (like JTicketing, Quick2Cart, Shika, People Suggest, etc)
