Post-installation Messages

We recommend that you review Post-installation Messages immediately after updating the Joomla! CMS.

If there are any NEW messages after you update your website's Joomla! CMS then you will see a BELL (see image) at the top of the website Dashboard.

You will also see a YELLOW BOX displayed next to Installation Messages in the System Dashboard screen.
