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 Migrate Yahoo Groups to Kunena

I have a new install of Kunena 1.5.4. I have managed to suck out all my messeges from Yahoo Groups to a mdb file (using PG offline). This file will open in ms access, so I should have some migration options. How do I get this database table into the new forum? Sql? Can I map the fields? Where to?

I'd like to import the messages into one forum, keeping the order and such. Is this possible? I'm kinda new to all this, but hey, I got THIS far!

Mark,

You will have to import the data into MySQL using phpMyAdmin. The mapping into Kunena will require a good understanding of SQL. I suggest you look at some of the existing migration tools for other forums, to get an idea what needs to be done.

Hope this helps!

Wow, what a quick reply! OK, then I'm on the right track. I know the fields of the mdb file. I'm hopeful I can just get the messages into a forum, lock it, used only for search. If I can keep the threading that would be all the better. Now to bring my users into the 21st century - THAT will be something! Thanks for your guidance.
