Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

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 I already have a forum section

Hi all :-)
I installed kunena but I've already a link like this: mysite.org/forum so kenuna doesn't run.
I can't move my forum section, can I force kunena starts by other link?

Hi Pol

Not really a Kunena related problem, more of a lack in general Joomla knowledge :-)

Log into your backend, go to "menus" -> "main menu" (or the menu where you want to link to kunena to appear), click on the "new" icon in the top right corner to create a new menu link, now select "kunena" as menu type (this might be slightly different depending on your kunena version), type "Forum" as title and save it. now go to the menu manager again (menus->main menu). in this overview, you should now see two "forum" links, just disable the old one.

an even easier way:
You could also just change the link target of your current "Forum" link. go to "menus->main menu" and look for your "forum" link. once you've found it, click it. on that detail page you should see a button "change type". click that button and select "kunena" in the next view. attention: only do it this way if you don't want your old forum to appear anymore.

I am not using the english version of joomla, so I cannot verify all the menu names I state above are correct... but they should be very similar.
