The website is always in a state of change. I currently have requests to update the look of the site. Prior to any update to the look of the site I need to update the software on the site. We currently run Joomla 2.5. This version is no longer supported. We need to update the site to the current version of Joomla (3.6.X). However the upgrade path from 2.5 to 3.6 currently fails (as tested on a back up copy of the site). In order to get the site updated I need to upgrade various extensions and plug-ins (and disable some that can't be updated). Below is a summary of the current status of these extensions.

I run joomla 2.5 with civicrm. This will probably work for any civicrm installation, but the path to folders may differ. The code is found here and the developer notes are found here. When I installed the code version was last updated on 9/5/2014.
