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 Protecting images from being downloaded

8 years 4 months ago #1 by petko8680
Hi all,
I was wondering if there is a way to protect all the images in my forum from being downloaded- what I mean is disable the "Save image as" right-click option? I know there is a way, because noticed it on several sites, but don't know if kunena supports/allows it. cheers

We had a similar discussion on this a couple of years ago (see Attachment ) and I'm sure we've had many other discussion about this issue, too.

The short answer is that you can write your own Javascript to disable the right-mouse button and thereby - to a certain extent - make it harder for people to obtain the images posted on your forum, steal them, and use them elsewhere. People can make a screen snapshot (ALT+PRNTSCRN] of your website and produce copies of the images they see, anyway. So, basically, there's no sure-fire bullet-proof answer to this that I know of. But maybe someone else has a few clues?
