We recently got Joomla 5 compatibility for Helix Ultimate framework and SP Page Builder 5, so in this post we are going to show you how to proceed with the update. Please note that if you are still using SP Page Builder 3, you cannot make the update yet, but don’t worry, we will add the 5th version to our packages soon.
Here are the steps you need to take in order to make the update (remember to always make a backup first):
- – Update all extensions in your admin dashboard (you can find latest Sp Page Builder 5 in the extensions folder).
- – Update to Joomla 4.4.
- – Set the update channel to Joomla Next.
- – Ignore warnings regarding the template or Sp Page Builder and proceed with the update.
- – Remove all overrides and done.
You may experience issues with icons due to the fact that the new Helix Ultimate/Joomla 5 update has Font Awesome 6 icons while Sp Page Builder has Font Awesome 5 (please follow the steps below only if you encounter issues with these icons and your template is built with Helix Ultimate).
You can fix these issues by going to Components – Sp Page Builder Pro – Settings – Scroll down and enable Load Font Awesome: https://prnt.sc/gaSF1_cg6if-
