I have a component that is compatible with joomla 2.5, but that is not rendering in a 3.6 enviroment (blank page).

What do I need to modify in order to make it work...?

  • In the configuration.php set error_reporting to development. The see this: docs.joomla.org/…

  • Thank you! Is there any log file attatched to this feature or just plain text on page? Commented Nov 3, 2016 at 15:49

There was a similar question here on JSE:
Q: Migrating component from 2.5 to 3.3
whose answers suggest two main links for information about J3 backwards compatibility and new API:
1. Potential backward compatibility issues in Joomla 3
2. Joomla 3.6. API

Hope this helps.


You can also check with the component(s) developer(s) to see if they have a version that is compatible with Joomla 3.x A lot of the top developers for Joomla will have versions compatible with the different versions of Joomla
