How to Install

To update from a version to a bigger version, all you need to do is just upload the new package over the previous one. There is no need to uninstall it first as you will lose all your parameters. Just install on top.


In order for "Display Date and Time" to function as intended, you need to have Joomla! 2.5 or 3.x installed (preferably the latest version in each major release) and working properly on the right server environment as noted in Joomla! technical requirements here.

Important: We can only provide support for setups that:

  • meet the Joomla! technical requirements.
  • do not have extension files or Joomla! core files which have been altered in any way.

We can't guarantee that this extension will work with any 3rd party extension, but it usually works if extension is using standard Joomla! HTML.
