Kunena 5.2 RC3 Released (29 Nov 2020)

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.

Is it possible to promote/demote users from the front end?
Would make it so much easier when promoting people to members rather than having to do it through the back end

I am sorry but I do not understand this question. "Promote" users from what? "Demote" users to what? I do not understand what this means in the Kunena context? Can you explain more about "promoting" or "demoting" members, please?

Kunena takes peoples 'rank' from the Jooml users - public,registered, superuser etc so that you can make sections of the forum visible to certain user groups.
It would be good when editing someones profile in Kunena (as a moderator/superuser/admin) to be able to change their user group to allow them to view different areas of the forum.

Thank you for clarifying your question. To be clear, Kunena rank has nothing to do with forum privileges.

Kunena uses the access system that is used by your website. Kunena works best with the Joomla ACL system. What you are discussing s how to modify Jooma access rights from the front end. That's a question for the Joomla forum , not for here.
