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 Error Messages When Saving Posts

8 years 3 months ago #1 by freedomcoach
My users and I have just recently started experiencing two strange error messages upon submitting replies to a thread. They are:

message: this field is required
message: You cannot leave this field empty

I did some testing and found these to not have consistency. When posting a short reply of a few words, the errors would not show up. Then posting a slightly longer reply of two short paragraphs, I would get one of these to show up. Then if I edited the post and included only the first paragraph, the error message would not come up.

The second message seemed to appear on saving after editing a post but not always. I thought that Kunena wanted me to fill in the reason for editing but that was not the case.

This is the first time I've ever encountered these errors with Kunena and it just showed up a few days ago.

The pattern is not limited to one thread. All comments appreciated. Hopefully, K2.0 will just resolve these issues automatically.

Sincerely,
Howard

When things like this mysteriously start happening after a long period of trouble-free operation I find it best to consider the question, "what has changed?".
You appear to be implying you have not changed anything in your Kunena installation. Not upgraded, repaired, added to etc?
If so, them consider who else might have the ability to change anything.
Two possibilities are a hacker,or your web host.
Hacker seems unlikely in this case. The issues are minor, and not particularly harmful.
So you are left with your web host. I would ask them about recent changes to policy, settings, upgrades to PHP, MySQL versions etc..

The PHP code has been significantly improved in K 2.0.0. I suggest that you evaluate K 2.0.0 RC on a clone/test site to judge for yourself. ;)

I will wait for the official release of 2.0. Is there any "repair function" in the admin back end of Kunena?

I'm sorry but I don't understand the question. "Repair function" (in the back end) for what, specifically?

Can you assist the project by establishing that this problem goes away in K 2.0, please? We currently do not have the resources to stop everything and test this matter in K 1.7.2 - even if we did have the resources, there won't be a fix for it in K 1.7 anyway. Our attention at this time is solely focused on K 2.0. I suggest you read this www.kunena.org/forum/77-General-Talk-abo...erator-s-view#125789

Sozzled,

I promise to report my findings for K 2.0 as soon as I possibly can. Not sure I will be able to set up a clone/sandbox site first. My work schedule these next 2 weeks is very demanding. I will do my best.

Sincerely,
Howard
