The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 6.0, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 4.x. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 6.0.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 6.0 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Kunena 6.0 has been designed to work on Joomla! 4.0, the requirements are the followings :
  • Php 7.2.5
  • MySQL 5.6.0

Is there an upgrade path from an existing J3 5.x forum to Joomla 4 6.x??
The database seem to be different.

In Kunena 5.2.x there is only CKeditor available so you can't remove it

It seems that the developpement of CKeditor 4 is slow, the only answer that i have on issues is to do it yourself :( : github.com/ckeditor/ckeditor4/issues/1317

how to remove ckeditor and enable only bb code editor?
triode-master replied the topic: #3 1 year 4 months ago

Yes exactly, for the username it was an easy fix and it's fixed in Kunena 5.2.5 developpement version and for the cursor position it's depends of goodwill of CKeditor  How do I fix a quote? The text is printed directly in the quote





 
How to fix it? You can't explain to all users that you have to click on the red square and insert a new paragraph. Are there solutions?

Exactly the same two issues are keeping me stuck on K5.1 - my website needs to show the user's full name for quotes, as happens in K5.1.

I guess you could fix the user's name easily, but the cursor position issue depends on getting a change made to CK Editor?

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.

There is no Preview option anymore before you post

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.
