Contact Enhanced Compatibility

Contact Enhanced is still compatible with Joomla 1.6 and 1.7, however future versions will only be compatible with Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3.x+ because we are removing deprecated functions and adding MS SQL compatibility.

If you want Contact Enhanced for Joomla 1.6 OR 1.7 and have a valid license, please go to Support -> Contact form  and ask for Contact Enhanced 2.5.9 which is the last version fully compatible with Joomla 1.6 and 1.7.

Please do not forget to provide your username, so we can find your payment in our system.
