Akeeba Ticket System 5.0.5 Stable

Released on: 2022-05-27 03:48 CDT

What's new?

Add Show Inline Help support in component options for Joomla 4.1. This feature adds support for a new Joomla core feature coming in Joomla 4.1.3. The Options page is currently very busy with the long descriptions of every single option. Starting with Joomla 4.1.3 these descriptions will be hidden by default. A button labeled “Show Inline Help” will appear on the site's Toolbar. Clicking on it reveals the descriptions.

Bug fixes and minor improvements. Please take a look at the CHANGELOG below.

Migration required

Due to the complete rewrite of Akeeba Ticket System you cannot just install the new version on top of an old major version (2 or 3) and have everything work trouble-free especially if you were using any of the following features:

  • Template overrides
  • Custom fields
  • User tags
  • Customised email templates
  • An avatar plugin other than Gravatar
  • InstantSearch
  • CRON jobs using the CLI scripts (those using a URL are not affected)
  • Credits
  • Ticket Buckets
  • Ticket rating
  • Off-line schedule
  • The geolocation custom field
  • The Social buttons plugin
  • Integration with com_search (the legacy Search feature in Joomla which predates Smart Search by a decade)

Our documentation has migration instructions. We strongly recommend working on your migration on a dev site first and test thoroughly to ensure you are not missing anything important when you upgrade to Akeeba Ticket System 5.

If you are using an older version of Akeeba Ticket System please upgrade to each major version up to and including the latest Akeeba Ticket System 4 version before migrating your site to Joomla 4. After your site's migration to Joomla 4 upgrade to Akeeba Ticket System 5.

If you are already using Joomla 4.1 or later please keep in mind that you cannot install Akeeba Ticket System 4 afresh or updates to it. Instead, install Akeeba Ticket System 5 and follow the migration instructions in our documentation. You should do this as soon as possible. We will no longer provide a migration path from older versions of Akeeba Ticket System after August 17th, 2023 when we the long term support for ATS 4 comes to an end.
