Form2Content can be easily upgraded by re-installing the latest installer in Joomla 2.5/3.x. Installation is done like any other Joomla extension via the Extension Manager in Joomla.
Never uninstall, always backup!
Always make a verified backup of your website before upgrading. When you uninstall F2C all the component files and database tables are completely removed! The generated Joomla articles will be left alone.
How to Upgrade Form2Content
After you made your backup, download the latest Form2Content version from the website. Go to the Joomla Extensions Manager on your website and re-upload/install the F2C Package as before. Your Form2Content is now upgraded.
For Joomla 1.5 you need to re-download the latest version, UNZIP the package and run the upgrade installer through the Joomla extension manager.
Upgrading from F2C Lite to F2C Pro
If you are already using F2C Lite you can run the F2C Pro installation package and all your data will be kept. Please be aware that you will have to update settings in your Content Type configuratyion and menu links for the new options available in Pro.
Upgrading Form2Content from J2.5 to J3.x
Backup first! This upgrade requires you to FIRST upgrade your Joomla version to 3.x. After this is done, download the latest Form2Content version for J3.x and re-install it through the Joomla Extensions Manager. Do not uninstall F2C first!
Migrating from J1.5 to J2.5
As explained in several other articles, moving from a Joomla 1.5 to a Joomla 2.5 website is a migration, not an upgrade! You will require a license for F2C Pro for J2.5 and need to use our (free) Form2Content migration component. read more here!
Where can I find the latest version?
On the Form2Content website. Simply re-download the F2C Lite version or login to the website and re-download your F2C Pro version.
Since F2C Pro for Joomla 2.5/3.x have the same license you will get both installers together in a ZIP format. UNZIP first before installation.
How can I check if I have the latest version?
On your OWN website in the Joomla back-end (administration area) navigate to components >> form2content. At the BOTTOM of the page you will see your Form2Content version and a link to check if it is the latest version.
Otherwise go to the changelog:
