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 Can you help me? Joomla/Kunena conversion

I looked through the import manual, couldn't find anything on the list for Kunena which is a Joomla add on that uses Joomla;'s databases I believe (getting a straight answer from either party is like pulling teeth really so not sure) for forums.

I didn't understand your question, but let's try...

If you are trying to upgrade existing Joomla 1.5 site to 2.5, I recommend using jUpgrade as otherwise all the category permissions will be wrong and you have to manually change those. I also recommend you to wait for Kunena 2.0 and the next version of jUpgrade, which should both be out in a few days.

Kunena uses Joomla database and prefix xxx_kunena in it. So to move Kunena to another site, you need to copy those tables. Additionally you should copy everything in /media/kunena.

But that's not enough as Kunena needs all the information from existing Joomla users and user groups. That cannot be converted from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 without using tools like jUpgrade.
