This version is compatible with Joomla 3.8.x and Joomla 3.7.x series.

Before you upgrade 

We took immense care while creating 1.5.2 and tested upgrade procedures with different variations, but sellacious is used in so many different ways by our awesome users and customised so widely that we always recommend you to take backup of your website before upgrading to latest version. It is always recommended to run the upgrade in staging environment and not to upgrade it on your live website. 


Steps of upgradation: 

Login in your Joomla Administrator panel, and go to Extensions > Manage > Update you will find upgrades listed in the available updates. Upgrade Sellacious package, and Template.

The second level authentication

Sellacious has embedded second level authentication, this way you give direct access of your shop administrator without letting them inside your Joomla Administrator panel. You can also configure the URL of this sellacious backend by simply changing the folder name of sellacious backoffice, by default it is “/sellacious” like: http://www.yourwebsite.com/sellacious


The default user which will login inside sellacious backoffice is the super admin of Joomla.
