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.

Question Locking forums?

Locking forums? was created by otips
Hi All,

We are a mental help support forum called www.turn2me.org.
Safety is paramount and we do not always have moderators online, is it possible to make the forums read-only from midnight to 8am?

Or make forums read-only when a moderator is not logged in?

Many thanks.

Yes, it is possible to do this. You need to run a cronjob to change one a setting in each forum's category and thus lock them. However, I don't know the specifics of how to write the script for the cronjob but maybe someone else can do this for you.

From the looks of things, this would be something you should consider engaging a professional PHP expert to do for you as a paid job.
