Joomla! 4.2.7 RC1 - Ready for Testing

Post by pe7er » Mon Jan 23, 2023 2:51 pm

The Production Team has a Release Candidate for Joomla 4.2.7 RC1 that is ready for testing. The more people that test in different environments, the better the release can be (on 31st January 2023).

DO NOT TEST ON A LIVE/PRODUCTION SITE but rather on a copy of a production site with the owners permission.

Directions on how to test and what to test can be found at See the list of bugs addressed by this release.

Download packages:

Specific tests Production would like:
  • TinyMCE had a lot of fixes for default language, iframe display, showing buttons...
  • Logos (even on login page) should display correctly
  • Breadcrumbs for menu items with tagged items are fixed
  • Modals should open and close correctly
  • Permissions for mod_submenu are fixed
  • Start and end feature for articles and categories received fixes
  • Fix for the child templates html directory #38986
Again, DO NOT TEST ON A LIVE/PRODUCTION SITE! Rather, test on a copy of a website that you have permission to use.

Thank you for helping Production test this next release of Joomla
