The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 188.8.131.52 [K 6.1.3] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.2.x/4.3.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.1.0 and issues discovered during the last development stages of K 6.1
Question Paragraph breaks not working
All the paragraph breaks seem to have gone missing and as a result, the text just becomes one big box.
Not sure what happened, but I do believe it was working before.
Initially, I noticed that the BBCODE toolbar was missing. I fixed that by going back to activate the SYSTEM MOTOOLS UPGRADE plug-in. Perhaps another extensions turned it off. The toolbar now works.
But the paragraph breaks still aren't which is confusing me.
Any ideas on where I might look?
I'm on the versions 1.6.2 of Kunena. Just also changed back to the default forum template too.
If you paragraph like in Joomla! editor, this doesn't work under Kunena
I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.
There are many examples of messages on your forum where paragraphs are properly formatted: 184.108.40.206/~thekarte/forum/141925-al...esharing-thread.html (the very first post is just one example).
It was working before. A lot of the content you see was due to a content migration. But in the past few weeks, I was able to format paragraphs properly. You simply hit the ENTER key and a paragraph break is entered.
What's interesting is that while in EDIT mode, I can see the paragraph breaks. It's only ONCE it is displayed to the public that the formatting is completely lost.
I should note that other BBCODE is working, ie. bold.
No one else is running into the same issue?
Obvious question: before what?
It was working before.
Can you provide us with a test account? Thanks.
What's happening is that this plugin is converting the CR/LF into whitespace. Our web broswers compress all whitespace characters into a single space. So, it's not a defective keyboard and I don't think it's a defect in Kunena, either (because it doesn't happen elsewhere). This suggests that the problem is a conflicting plugin that is hijacking CR/LF characters on your website, or it's possibly a corrupted installation of Kunena or Joomla.
Can I get an answer to my earlier question, please?
It was working before.
I figured it was another software causing it, but since the BBCODE toolbar was working again, I was assuming it may not have been, since others have indicated that would be a combined effect.
Do you know of a way to easily determine which plugin is causing it? And for future reference, how are you looking for this?
Me personally? No; I'm not that talented. The interference is happening at the backend; therefore you need to be monitoring what's happening at the website.

I created a message like this:

... and then I submitted the message, looked at the result and then I looked at the page source. Your browser has a "view source" option. I compared what I saw at your site with what we see here, at www.kunena.org . Yes, it pays to have a reliable reference site. www.kunena.org is a fairly reliable reference. :)
