Upgrading 3.6.5 with non ID numbers in URL hack to 3.8.12

Post by scava » Sat Sep 15, 2018 4:16 pm

Hi all,

I've recently retaken my personal web page after a long break and i'm considering to upgrade it to the latest version that seems to handle the non-ID URLs without the router code hack. Now the webpage works smoothly, without IDs in URL...
Do you recommend to upgrade now or wait until 4.0 release? Yes I know: bugs, security fixes... but I don't want to mess all the URLs again.
Any special tip about upgrading from 3.6.5 with router hack to 3.8.12. Will the URLs be the same as now?

Thanks in advance,

Sergio

The new routing system in Joola: https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:New_Routing_System as introduced

You will need to update your Joomla since it is mandatory to update to Joomla 3.9 (when we release it) before (mini)migrating to Joomla 4. This will be a release that will prepare your site for the upcoming Joomla 4.0

Your version of Joomla is highly vulnerable and you could be hacked and whacked any moment. You doi not want to take that risk do you?

Finally, no problems with the upgrade and the urls remains identical as before.
