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 Send emails to Poster

File Name: NewPostPlu...5-10.zip

Plugin updated 2014-05-10. Fixed very slow posting with plugin enabled.

This plugin will send an email to the poster. It requires that a table be created in the database with the following fields:

kunena_cat : integer value of the Kunena category
msg_type : integer value, 1 = new post, 2 = reply to post
subject : text string email message subject
body : text string email body (may be html email)

I used fabrik to create and manage this table.

You may have emails for new topics and replies to topics. The plugin tests if an email is in the table that matches the posted kunena category and if there is an email for the type of post (new or reply).

When it finds a match it performs some substitutions on the email subject and body. The following placeholders are supported (include the braces):
{name} - posters name from the users table
{email} - posters email
{category} - kunena category name the post was made to
{subject} - the post subject line
{date} - the current date and time

Install the plugin the usual J! way. Configure the plugin by selecting the database table name for the email messages along with the email address and name of the sender.

Plugin is provided asis and was tested under Joomla 2.5.14 and Kunena 3.0.2.

Hope some of you find it useful.
