Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (Yesterday)

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 Closing site - Need to archive Kunena Forum posts

Our business is closing down the Joomla website and moving to a commercially managed CMS. Is there anyway to save our Kunena forum posts as they contain business discussions of importance for history purposes?

I see many posts about migrating a forum to Kunena, but what about away from Kunena?

Thanks!

It is possible to salvage you Kunena forum data.

As I have written before , there are essentially three parts to the Kunena forum:

  1. Kunena data (tables);
  2. Joomla users; and
  3. forum attachments

If you salvage those things then you, pretty much, have everything. As you would probably be aware , Kunena is a forum component developed for Joomla. Without Joomla Kunena won't work but that's something you will have to consider as part of your overall business strategy.

I hope that answers your question.

For archiving the site, you could keep the old site but prevent logins into it.

There are a few migration scripts from Kunena to a few other forums, but unfortunately I've never kept track on those.

Look into using akeeba backup to create a archive of you entire site that you can re-install if required further down the line, if you use this remember to test your backup first.
