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 Documentation seems to be missing some index or content page links

9 years 3 months ago #1 by bcraigie

Looking for some initial setup information, I arrived at docs.kunena.org/index.php/Main_Page which has information about installation and upgrade etc, but no obvious links to the documents about how to actually configure Kunena.

I happened upon a forum post here that linked me to docs.kunena.org/index.php/Sections%2C_Ca...p_for_special_groups which is ideal, but it seems to be parentless so cannot be found from the main page.

I would have thought it should link off docs.kunena.org/index.php/Forum_Administration but that isn't written yet?

Am I being silly and missing something obvious on the documentation main page?

Sorry if it's a daft question.

G'day, bcraigie, and welcome to Kunena.

Your question is not silly, daft and neither have you missed something obvious. The problem with the lack of documentation is, quite simply, it hasn't been written.

Every person who is a member of this community can write documentation. Yes, it requires a little technical know-how to write Wiki but that shouldn't be an excuse for people not to write something. Even if people don't know how to write "Wiki" they can use other tools (like Open Office of Microsoft Word ... or even good ol' Windows Notepad) and send it to any member of the team and we can put it on the Wiki for you.

Basically, though, you don't require a lot of documentation to configure Kunena. In fact, to be completely honest with you, I only change about three configuration settings and I leave all the others with their default values. But, you know something else? You don't actually have to change any settings at all to make Kunena work for you immediately, straight after you've installed it and, I think, this is something that many people forget. We receive a lot of questions here because people have been too "adventurous" with changing things around instead of working with the standard configuration first and only making changes after they find out what each setting does.

The Wiki main page is not intended to be a comprehensive table of contents. As with everything else contained in the Wiki, it is only meant to be a guide. I mostly navigate through the Wiki by using the search feature.

Yes, I completely agree with you, the documentation Wiki needs to be updated. This is not one person's job; everyone can help. It would be rather nice if a couple of people would offer to do some of that work.
