Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. 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 5.2.0 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 5.1 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.

Question Kunena's posts not displaying in JomSocial properly out of box...

Hi Kunena team,

So far, I'm loving Kunena and it has been the easiest component to use out of all of the components I have installed! :D

But there is just one small problem: for some reason, the links in my user's JomSocial profiles for the "Communtiy - My Kunena Updates" plugin are incorrect and display like this:


when they should look something like this:


Any ideas how to fix this? I believe the problem lies within these lines of code of the plugins/community/kunena/kunena.php file:
									foreach ($items as $item ){
											$fbURL 		= JRoute::_("index.php?option=com_kunena&amp;func=view".$fbItemid."&amp;catid=" . $item->catid . "&amp;id=" . $item->id . "#" . $item->id);
											$fbCatURL 	= JRoute::_("index.php?option=com_kunena".$fbItemid."&amp;func=showcat&amp;catid=" . $item->catid);
											$postDate	= new JDate($item->time);

Thanks for your help!

Btw, here are my complete specifications:

Joomla 3.1.5
Kunena 3.0.2

I do not want to to be waiting an indefinitely ling time for an answer but, for the reasons explained in To what extent does K 3.0 support JomSocial , the Kunena team does not maintain the Community - My Kunena Updates plugin.

I think that it may be possible you have overlooked the reason why the URL links display in the strange manner that they do (aside from the fact that some of that PHP code looks suspiciously as though it was designed for an ancient version of Kunena, e.g. references to "$fbfiles"), but if you want to provide us with "complete specifications", please watch the video https://vimeo.com/69818669 . Are you sure that you have properly implemented Joomla SEO?

Yes, the SEF URLs are working for all other components just fine (or appear to be working.)

By the way, here is my config file:

Thank you for posting your more complete site details.

The most likely reasons that you are having problems are:

(a) using the Blue Eagle template designed for K 2.0; we recommend that you use the K 3.0.4 Blue Eagle template instead;

(b) the plugins JomSocial - My Kunena Forum Menu 2.0.3, JomSocial - My Kunena Forum Posts 2.0.3 and JomSocial - Kunena Groups 2.0.3 do not work with K 3.0.4 and you should uninstall them or contact JomSocial to obtain the newer versions of those things that they wrote that (we understand) do work with K 3.0.4; and

(c) update to K 3.0.4 because K 3.0.2 is out-of-date and nearly 100 problems have been fixed since K 3.0.2 - the version you are using - was released several months ago.

You may also want to change the integration plugin settings to the values shown in red below:

Kunena - AlphaUserPoints Disabled
Kunena - Community Builder Disabled
Kunena - Gravatar Disabled
Kunena - JomSocial Enabled: access=0 login=1 activity=1 avatar=1 profile=1 private=1 activity_points_limit=0 activity_stream_limit=150
Kunena - Joomla Enabled: access=1 login=0
Kunena - Kunena Enabled: avatar=0 profile=0
Kunena - UddeIM Disabled
