Introduction:

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the final release of Kunena 5.2.3, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.2 and issues discovered during the last development stages.

You need Joomla 3.9 to run Kunena 5.2.3, the minimal requirement for Php has been increased to 7.0.4. Kunena 5.2.3 can runs too with Php 8.0.

For users of template Blue eagle5 v1.6.2, please wait the release of Blue eagle5 v1.6.3 before updating Kunena to 5.2.3.

What's different?

Upgrading to K 5.2.3 involves changes that may affect Kunena's interoperability with other extensions installed on your site. For this reason it is advisable that you first test K 5.2 on a test site before you upgrade your live production site(s). At this stage the team is not treating interoperability with other Joomla extensions as the topmost priority. The main priority at this time is about installation/upgrade and operability as a standalone Joomla component.

There is no Preview option anymore before you post



 

CKeditor is a WYSIWYG editor so you don't preview anymore, some bbcode specifics to Kunena needs to have theirs render into CKeditor

Updating this template caused major problems with line breaks in category's and last post columns.



 

Can-you be more specific please ?

And why when you paste it opens up another box to paste into first?


 

That's is a workaround that i had added because the content pasting into CKeditor was worse before

xillibit post=216286"]Hello,Where do-you see line breaks in categories ? Your screenshot is too small so i can't see itPrivate messages isn't available yet in Kunena, so you need to use an another component to handle thatThe spellchecker is done with your browser, but if you want to be handled by CKeditor your need to have your custom config file and remove this line : github.com/Kunena/Kunena-Forum/commit/a6...1e4fab3c504b5157679e

What do you mean Private Messages isn't available in Kunena? I've always had it. But my freelancer says this "We were having strange problems with the PM on the hosting.First, I tried to replace all the deprecated features on my local server and everything works fine.But an incomprehensible error appears on the hosting - as if a file with functions is not being loaded. And because of this, the entire site falls. So I had to turn off PM in Kunena. This is not a Kunena problem, this is a uddeIM problem."He has had to disable Uddle. Why has this stopped working?

 

This latest Kunena update is just terrible as it has created so many problems for my site.
 Private messages no longer works. I have always used UddleIM without any problems.

You have private messages into Kunena because you have enabled plugin integration with UddeIM which is a third party component not endorsed by Kunena team. I'am fixing the issues with integration plugins into version 5.2.4 of Kunena.

What is the issue that you have with UddeIM integration into Kunena ?

Quoting is ridiculous and complicated. When you click Quote the cursor should be automatically placed outside the quoted text on the next line, simple. It is very difficult you get the cursor on the next line on a smart phone. I have found you have to tap in the red Enter mark several times. I cannot highlight text in the quote on my smart phone, only on a desktop or ipad. I can highlight text on my smart phone when not using quote, it only gives me copy, cut and paste option.

Emoticons are now spaced apart.

Updating this template caused major problems with line breaks in category's and last post columns.

And why when you paste it opens up another box to paste into first?

And finally this costs me money paying someone to try to fix all these issues.
