Component Updates

This section covers CoalaWeb extensions that come packaged with a central component.

CoalaWeb component based extensions integrate with the inbuilt Joomla Update system so both Core and Pro users can keep their extensions up to date. For Core users when you see updates listed in the Joomla update manager feel free to select it and update.

For Pro subscribers you will need to make sure you still have a Valid Subscription and that you have entered your Download ID in either the Control Panel input field. [Figure-1]

Or through the component configuration options under Updates. [Figure-2]

TIP: To stop any typos I recommend copying and pasting the Download ID and also to check for no spaces at the end.

Non Component Updates

This section covers CoalaWeb extensions that don't come packaged with a central component such as stand alone modules and plugins.
Non component CoalaWeb extensions will need to have at least version 0.2.2 of the System - CW Gears plugin installed.

CoalaWeb non component based extensions integrate with the inbuilt Joomla Update system so both Core and Pro users can keep their extension up to date. For Core users when you see updates listed in the Joomla update manager feel free to select it and update.

For Pro subscribers you will need to make sure you still have a Valid Subscription and that you have entered your Download ID into the System - CW Gears plugin. [Figure-3]

Not sure where to find your Download ID? Click HERE for more info.

Inside the CW Gears plugin options your will find a tab titled Updates and under it a Download ID input field. I recommend you copy and paste your Download ID into this field to reduce the risk of a typo and also to check for no spaces at the end. [Figure-4]

The CW Gears plugin will take care of the Download ID for any CoalaWeb extensions that doesn't come with a component.

Error Updating Pro?

This a check list that should help fix common issues with updating a CoalaWeb Pro extension.
  • Do you have a valid subscription? If you subscription has run out then the update will fail.
  • Have you entered the correct Download ID? Not sure where to find your Download ID? Click HERE for more info.
  • Make sure when you copied and pasted your Download ID it doesn't have a Space at the end.
  • After you enter or edit your Download ID make sure to Clear Cache in the Joomla updater and Find Updates again. This will allow your new settings to catch up.

Non Component specific tips

  • After you have install a Pro version of a non Component CoalaWeb extension make sure to enter your Download ID into the System - CW Gears plugin.
  • If you install another non Component CoalaWeb extension Open and Save the System - CW Gears plugin option again to help the settings catch up.

Where can I find my Download ID?

To see your Download ID you will need to log into coalaweb.com and then go to:

Members -> My Subscriptions

You will then see the ID displayed in the module titled Download ID. [Figure-5]

TIP: To stop any typos I recommend copying and pasting the download ID and also to check for no spaces at the end.
