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 sef_ext

Hello kunena team,

sh404sef developers write in their forum that the kunena developers have to write the sef_ext file for sh404sef to work. I would like to use Kunena 3 but can't. Many links get broken, if I use the joomla router.php that some are telling in this forum.

When will the file be published? Will kunena even write that file? I don't know who did it before but sh404sef is not going to obviously.

The Kunena team has never written anything for sh404SEF and it's an unusual request coming from the sh404SEF developers that the Kunena project has any responsibilities in this area.

The simple fact is that, as far as we know, sh404SEF is incompatible with K 3.0 (see Interoperability with other Joomla extensions ) and it has been like this since K 2.0. I am just giving you the facts.

If people want to use sh404SEF that's OK but, for those who use this extension, you should enable Joomla SEO and disable sh404SEF as far as Kunena is concerned. Perhaps (and this is just my personal view) the sh404SEF developers will look in their own backyard one day and provide support for their customers who use Kunena. :dry:

Kunena team members do not have any direct involvement with the sh404SEF project - the team members do not use this extension - and we do not know much about it. Maybe other members of the community who are customers of sh404SEF will have more information about these issues and can advise you better than me.

Thank you very much for your honest answer. Kunena 2 has been compatible with the attached file that came with sh404sef. Its just a pity that their developers leave their customers "alone" without getting their component compatible with the most popular forum.

I will then switch back to joomla router.php but won't spend any more money on their component. Many won't because there is nothing new to pay for.

Would you prefer any other seo component that does a good job on Joomla and with Kunena 3?

Some people feel that third-party SEO products offer "improvements" over Joomla SEO and there are as many views about the merits of using third-party SEO products as there are people who use them. We do not use any third-party SEO products here at this site.
