JCK Manager: Upgrading JCK Plugins
To do this navigate to 'Components' and down to the'JCK Manager' (this will lead to the JCK Manager Cpanel):
- For Joomla 2.5 - click on the ‘Installer' button, which will lead to the Plugin Installer screen. Next click on 'Plugins' to view your list on installed plugins and their 'Version' numbers.
- For Joomla 3.0 - click in the 'Uninstaller' button to view your list on installed plugins and their 'Version' numbers.
Next try checking the version of the JCK Plugin installed against the version number on our site. If they are out-of-date it is probably worth checking the plugins changelogs and upgrade!
Before starting, it is advisable to create a restore points prior to upgrading. This can be done by exporting a backup of your custom configuration as a tar.gz (please see: Backup and Restore for instructions on how to do this).
To upgrade first download the latest version of the plugin and go back to the JCK Manager 'Cpanel' and click on the ‘Installer’ button, which will lead to the installer screen. Under `Package File’ click on `Browse...’-> Navigate to the JCK plugin Zip file -> and select it. Next select the editor toolbar(s) you would to assigned the plugin and -> click `Upload File & Install’.
The system will now automatically upgrade the JCK plugin.
