Missing Pre-Update Check

Post by SForsgren » Tue Aug 24, 2021 10:38 pm

I upgraded to 3.10 and saw the Pre-Update Check tab on Joomla Update and started contacting companies for extensions that are not ready.

Now I went to 3.10.1 today and I no longer see the Pre-Update Check tab. How can I get it to show up again?

Thanks, :)

Hi, you must change your update channel to Joomla Next so you can see the Pre update check.
Component -> Joomla Update -> Options -> Update Channel: Joomla Next

That worked. I don't believe I did that previously, but that worked. Thank you!

It will also show on J3.10.1 using the “default” update channel when updates are available :)

To everyone posting on here:

The "Joomla Next" update channel will report the availability of Joomla 4.0.x and extensions; useful for seeing which of your extensions are ready for J4 and which are not, but please be completely sure that all your extensions are compatible before hitting the "Update" button :eek:

Remember to set the channel back to "default" after you've seen what's what! Leaving it on "Joomla next" means that the checker will run each time you have something to update.

In Joomla 3.10.x, using the "Default" channel, the Update pre-checker will show when there are J3-series updates available. If it doesn't show and there are no updates available then this is expected behaviour.

J 3.10.2 - on Joomla Next in update component.

However, Pre-Update check does not show on the tab bar.

Is there any way I can reinstate it?
