This plugin does it perfectly. I had a small issue that I reported to the developer, Jasper. This was fixed in no time flat! Great support. I can only summarize by saying this is a perfect addition to Joomla!
Lots of drop down options that are perfectly clear to the user.
Although this is a freebie, it is well worth the commercial 'fee' to remove the obligatory text. Even a donation would be well-received!
I can thoroughly recommend this module manager and; combined with #NoNumber it is a perfect combination.
It shows clearly when things need updating and allows you to 'install' directly from the component.
The extensions are really good and work flawlessly. Support is great too!
I must agree with one of the other posters about jUpgrade. I spent hours on trying this and it did not do the job. Admittedly my site was fairly old and may have had bug in it. The time I spent on various forums didn't resolve the issues. I strongly suggest using SP Upgrade for the very time you will save in this process.
The SP Upgrade component is just what I was looking for. Thanks to the developer for the product, the support and the reasonable cost to purchase it. Well done!
I thought I wouldn't be wanting to pay for many Joommla! items; but this was definitely worth it!
I give this DocMan tool a complete and unreserved recommendation.
