And then it happened: almost a year after the last support for Joomla 1.5 ended, I get a strange e-mail from the site notifying me of the registration of a new user. That functionality does not exist on our family web site. I immediately have taken the site off-line. Why were we not upgraded? Well, as you may notice, this site is multi-lingual. And as it happens, that is already the case for many years. With joomla-1.5 this was not a native functionality, but it was supported through the fabulous joomfish extension. Unfortunately, a lot changed between joomla 1.5 and 2.5, especially in language support, and joomfish was still not ready for an automatic migration.
Because of the "mistrust" I have had to rebuild the site from scratch using Joomla 2.5. This has been a lot of work. Most pages got a new URL, and we want to support the old one. The menu structure was adapted to be much more native to joomla 2.5. In fact, I have not even yet transferred all content and will be continuing to eliminate the last 404 messages over the coming weeks.
Welcome to our new site!
Update on October 6: All content has been migrated.
