Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first 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 RC1 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 Alias for users

Alias for users was created by adso
Hi,
I want that when a user creates an account, be able to choose the alias name shown in kunena, so my questions are:
- Does kunena support user alias to be displayed instead of the account user name?
- If so, which part of the database is it stored? (I want to make a plugin to include the kunena alias field in user registration page)

Thanks

Please see How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website?

There is no "user alias" field in Joomla and, consequently, there is no "user alias" field in Kunena. If it's not there, Kunena does not support it. Kunena is open source software which means that you can modify it to do whatever else you would like to do in your particular circumstances.

Ok, so it could be a suggestion to have aliases, just for security purposes, so the username is not displayed for security reasons.

We understand the issue. Indeed, this issue has been flagged as an idea for a future version of Kunena (see github.com/Kunena/Kunena-2.0/issues/424 ). This is not a feature of the current version of Kunena and it will not be implemented in K 1.7.
