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 Would a Joomlart template and Kunena work with iPhones or Blackberries?

10 years 5 months ago - 10 years 5 months ago #1 by rjwatsoniii

I am looking at creating a web site with the following components listed below. I would like the web site to be locked down and one must login before seeing any menus, content, etc. Possibly just an introductory article on the home page with the login.

I would prefer to use the following components:

1. Joomlart Template (prefer T3 enabled as I would like to view the site on handhelds such as blackberries, iphones, etc).

2. Latest Community Builder or other community enhancing plug in.

3. Latest Joomla 1.5.15

4. Forum such as Kunena (locked down by initial login module)

As I said I want the site to be locked down. I have tried some templates such as Sanidine II which has built in CB and Fireboard but does not work well with mobile browsers such as the T3 enabled Joomlart templates.

There are some T3 enabled Joomlart templates such as Zeolite II but it seems only work well the default login module from Joomla not the one for Community Builder (CB 1.2.2). Like I said I want all menus and content to be locked down and only registered user can see those and the forum board.

Am I asking for too much. Like I said I prefer using the Joomlart templates as they are great looking and seem pretty stable. But I need to be able to view content on Blackberry Browsers.

Thank you for reading my post. Experts needed!

The best, simplest, and most effective advice that I can give anyone is to actually experiment with all of these features using a test site. I, like many others reading this message, am unfamiliar some of the specific matters that were raised.

It should be possible to view a Kunena forum on a mobile phone if the site template makes it possible to do so on a postage stamp-sized viewscreen. I've browsed my own websites on my mobile phone (which lacks all the sophisticated features of iPhone or Blackberries) so, in short, your idea is feasible.

But, experimentation is the key to answering this "how long is a piece of string" question. Only you really know what you're looking for.
