e4j's Blog news about the Joomla!® world and the Vik extensions

VikEvents v1.11 has been released! A completely re-designed framework for the entire back-end section gives the component a fresh look. This update is fully compatible with any Joomla 3.x version as well as with the upcoming Joomla 4 framework.

How to update to the latest version?

You can install the latest version of Vik Events through the Joomla native update functions, or by using our free plugin Vik Updater.
From the page Extensions - Manage - Updates, you should find the update to the latest version of Vik Events. This is valid for all those who are using a recent version of the component and would like to upgrade through the Joomla native update functions.
Instead, those who are willing to use our plugin Vik Updater are supposed to first download, install and enable our plugin from the Joomla Extensions Install page. Once the plugin has been installed and activated, the page Dashboard of Vik Events should display a button that says "Update Available" in the top menu. By clicking on that button you can perform the installation of the latest update for Vik Events.

The policy for the updates of this extension hasn't changed: updating is free only if you have purchased a copy of Vik Events, or a copy of the previous Updates, after June 18th 2020. This means that your Support License must be active on the release date of the new version of Vik Events, which is December 18th 2020. Those who have purchased the extension or an update before June 18th 2020, will be asked to purchase the paid version of the update (Update Package) for €29. This will give you access to free updates for another update cycle, and it will renew your Support License for another 6 months.

IMPORTANT: please remember to check for any updates for the modules of Vik Events. This can be easily done from your Joomla administrator section, by clicking on Extensions - Manage - Update.
The paid version of the Update Package only serves to renew the Support License for those accounts that are already using a recent version of Vik Events. The update methods are still the ones described above. Instead, those using an older version of the component Vik Events will find the instructions inside the Update Package to upgrade to a more recent version that supports the above described update methods.
