Thanks for the link, successfully reverted back to 3.0.7 and layout of category sections and titles are back to normal size and correct colours.

For the moment I think I'd rather have a forum that looks okay layout-wise over the added SEO mods you've made to the blue eagle template of 3.0.8.

Yes, we have written many times in this forum , JCH Optimize is not recommended if you want to use Kunena.

lifeguard wrote: this update sucks.

i have a site joomla 3.3 with kunena 3.0.5 and its ok.

i see the update, make a copy of the site, and update to kunena 3.0.6
so far so good.

but the speed of kunena 3.0.6 its horrible.

i cannot understand why it works so slow.
my kunena 3.0.5 need 0,200seconds to load a page, but 3.0.6 needs almost 6 seconds to load everypagee.

the sites ar the same, because its only test copy.
i am not gonna update this to my live-site because my members will kill me.

for the record, all other components working fine. News, search, admin works fast. Only kunena is slow.


Ok, after a time, i will give a reaction.
You were right. It was me, who failed with this.

Foprgive me for this post. It was not to blame anybody, and i have mucht for the team behind Kunena, and his supporters.

It was a plugin, who makes my site slower. JCH optimize. Maybe i mis a setting, or something.
But on a new site, with same config, it works like a charm.
Thanks people, and aigain, forgive me for my stupid comment here.

Yeah, I already tried this and it won't add new entries (like Kunena) to the table. Purge only resets the enabled column to 1 and Find Updates will check the availability of the URLs and sets enabled to 0 if a URL can't be opened.
Then I'll go for a manual update and let you know if an entry to this table is added with it.

edit: Update successful and entry with URL update.kunena.org/3.0/list.xml was added to the table :)

Hello World! The end of Joomla 2.5's life-cycle is approaching. At the end of 2014 Joomla will offically be dropping support for Joomla 2.5 as conveyed here: http://developer.joomla.org/development-status.html. Here are some details web administrators should take into consideration concerning Kunena future versions and Joomla 2.5 support and security.

Who is affected?

Anyone running trying to run a future released version of Kunena after the last support date specified below.

What does this concern?

Kunena and Joomla support and security.

Where will this take place?

Any Kunena Extensions will immediately deny upgrade and install and will eventually remove API support for specific code that pertains to Joomla 2.5.

When does this happen?

Kunena will offically drop Joomla 2.5 support at the end of Q4 of 2014 offically on the date December 31, 2014. (NOTE: This date might be adjusted in accordance to the "End of Support" date Joomla specifies). At Kunena we will most likely be in a minor version release [versioning structure (major).(minor).(revision) example given: 3.1.2] during this release time. The next (major) OR (minor) OR (revision) release will refuse to install on the latest Joomla 2.5.x series.

Why should I update?

Although Kunena and Joomla support and security being the more important reason. Some secondary reasonings are improved performance, improved code quality which means less errors, newer web standards in development and design practices, and thus better experience for your users.

How do I prepare?

There are some good Joomla user guides available on the Internet regaruding moving from Joomla 2.5.x to the latest Joomla 3.x.x. Here is a good starter topic to take note of about the process and procedures involved: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?t=793171

I have more questions.

Feel free to ask us questions below or on the forum. Have a good week.

In relatively "simple" English, this is the situation (as best as I understand it):

Joomla does not support J! 2.5 (as from 1 January 2015).

Unless there is something of a major security alert, there are no intentions by the Joomla development team to support or fix any problems with J! 2.5 or release any versions after J! 2.5.28.

Basically means—just like it means if people were using J! 1.0 or J! 1.5—if you are using J! 2.5 then, if it works, good luck and, if it doesn't work, it's a case of "you're on your own". The best advice that anyone can give to people who are using old, outdated and unsupported software is to upgrade to software that is supported.

As far as Kunena is concerned, it is reasonable to say that K 3.0 (and K 3.1—if this ever sees the light of day) will continue to operate on J! 2.5 systems but, as 810 and coder4life have stated, if you have problems then the Kunena developers have no real intention to address them—for the general connunity—as far as J! 2.5 websites are concerned.

Quoting from the article,

The next (major) OR (minor) OR (revision) release will refuse to install on the latest Joomla 2.5.x series.

this is a little misleading. There have been no changes to K 3.0 (or K 3.1 for that matter) that impose this restriction. It is unlikely that this restriction will be enforced in future versions of the K 3.0 series.

In summary, if you are using J! 2.5 then you may use Kunena (for as long as the J! 2.5 codebase is included in the installation) but if you have problems then whatever assistance or help will be minimal or, in all probability, non-existent.

@810 is correct. We plan to support J2.5 minimally in regards to updating to the latest Joomla version in the 3.x series. However any specific bugs that are a result of being J2.5 specific (other then migration bugs) will not be fixed.

You are correct we plan to drop J2.5 specific code, but even 3.1 will be built and work on J2.5 for some time after with the same intention of support.

The goal is to allow a transition period.

Sounds good. I know that typically unsupported versions break compatibility eventually. B) Eventually will compatibility with J 2.5 be dropped to make Kunena a little lighter as well?

810 replied the topic: #4 7 years 8 months ago
K3.0.7 And K3.1.0 version still works on J2.5 but we advice the users to upgrade as soon as possible.

If there is a bug for j25 only, we won't fix it. But the code should work there is no b/c issue's.

The new year is here. I assume Joomla 2.5 support is officially dropped?
