Joomla 5 compatibility


New Member
hey folks, is the latest joomla plugin compatible with joomla 5? when running the update check it tells me that the latest one (10-18-2023 ) may cause issues, has any testing been done?

I tried it, and it does not work without compatibility plugin
Could you please specify what is going wrong?

Hi there,
As you might be aware, in Joomla 5 you can/should disable the Backward Compatibility plugin. More information about this on

Any extension which works on J5 without requiring the Backward Compatibility plugin is actually J6-ready.

I have just downloaded the latest J5 package from
but there are still 2 errors which crash the site when disabling the Backward Compatibility plugin:

Attempted to load class "JModuleHelper" from the global namespace.
Did you forget a "use" statement?
in /home/smeddzxm/public_html/administrator/modules/mod_lscache_purge/mod_lscache_purge.php (line 5)
require JModuleHelper::getLayoutPath('mod_lscache_purge', $params->get('layout', 'default'));
Class "JComponentHelper" not found

As soon as this is fixed I will be happy to test the new version :)
And so does @serge_web54 ao ;)
