CB Quick Installation Check List

The Community Builder package includes a PDF installation guide with pictures to help newbie Joomla users to install and initially setup the basics. Included in the CB package you can also find two text files (README.txt and UPGRADE.txt) that also contain useful information regarding new installs and upgrading from older versions. Sometimes this amount of detail can be overwhelming for the more advanced and somewhat more experienced Joomla user.

The following new installation quick-list might help those who are more advanced and understand the terminology used:

  1. Download latest CB distribution package from:
    (please note that your must be a registered member and must be logged in to access)
  2. Download the latest CB Primer Book from:
  3. Follow the CB Primer Book instructions to use your Joomla Extension Installer (exact Joomla menu navigation depends on Joomla version) to install the CB package (pkg_communitybuilder_*.zip).

Upgrading to latest CB on Joomla 2.5 and 3.x sites

If you already have CB installed on a Joomla 2.5 or 3.x site, then all you need to so to upgrade is just install the latest CB package right over your existing installation.

Your configuration settings, CB tabs, CB plugins and user data will remain intact. But backup first as a precaution.
