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.

Solved How to inform registered users about the forum's existence

Hello,

We have installed the Kunena forum on our site fairly recently. Is there a way to inform our registered users about the forum's existence, so that they can make use of it? (We have CB latest version installed on our site.) From the forum settings, I am aware that members can subscribe to topics/categories, but they will be able to do so _after_ they come to know about the forum.

Hello,

Thank you for the help. We tried sending out a mail to all registered users, but the system sent the mail to the administrator/super-user email address only; none of the registered users received it.

In case Kunena does not have this facility in-built, are there any third-party non-commercial extensions that may prove useful for our purpose?

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

TIA.

Hello,

It is a pleasure to put on record that we managed to be able to inform the site's registered users about the forum's existence.

We used CB's user manager to send out the mass mail. Since CB is already installed on our site, no further third-party component/plugin installation was necessary.

This is for the benefit of Kunena users with a similar requirement.
