  • 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)
