Kunena 5.2 RC3 Released (Yesterday)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the third public release candidate 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 RC3 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.

Merged How to move, copy or merge my old Kunena forums from one site to another

810: It seemed like one table (kunena_user_categories?) was missing.

Another couple of hours and I think I've done it.
OK, so here is the instruction how to upgrade Kunena 1.5.13 (Joomla 1.5.26) to Kunena 3.0.6 (Joomla 3.3.6) for others:

Two websites - Joomla 1.5.26 (old one) and Joomla 3.3.6 (new one)

0. Make BACKUPS!!!

1. Upgrading Kunena 1.5.13 -> Kunena 1.6.5 (Joomla 1.5.26)
2. Upgrading Kunena 1.6.5 -> Kunena 1.7.2 (Joomla 1.5.26)
3. Upgrading Kunena 1.7.2 -> Kunena 2.0.4 (Joomla 1.5.26)

4. Installing Kunena 3.0.6 (Joomla 3.3.6)

5. Renaming all the prefixes of the 1st database (Joomla 1.5.26) to be the same as the prefixes withing the second database (Joomla 3.3.6) - phpMyAdmin function

6. Exporting all Kunena 2.0.4 tables (Joomla 1.5.26, first database). There were 23 of them. The names (structure) should be the same as in Kunena 3.0.6.

7. Deleting all Kunena 3.0.6 tables (Joomla 3.3.6, second database, 23 tables).

8. Importing all 23 tables of Kunena 2.0.4 (first database) into the Kunena 3.0.6 (second database).

9. Copy Media/Kunena/Attachments folder from the old Kunena to the new one.

I think that's it. At least it works so far. Hope it helps others, too.

Now I need to find some DARK templates for my forum (do you know where I could find some?)

810 + sozzled, thank you for your help.
