Kunena 5.1.18 Released (30 Jun 2020)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.1.18 [K 5.1.18] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.1 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 5.1.
Question Joomla 2.5 and Kunena 1.7.1
So, I contribute this "news" snippet to let members of this community know that Kunena is not the only Joomla extension to be affected by J! 2.5.0. Joomla 2.5.1 is planned for release on Tuesday 31 January.
If you were following me on Twitter you'd know what's going on. This issue had thrown me into a fit of cursing and swearing
IMHO, the way this change was rolled out caused serious backwards compatibility bug in the Joomla! core. The proper way to roll out such changes is to make the change in the interim releases (1.6, 1.7) and have backwards-compatibility code (an if-block), so that developers can deploy the change over the course of the 12 months of the interim releases. Then, in the stable release (2.5), the backwards compatibility code can be removed. Since this was not the case, Joomla! 2.5 broke our extensions. For my part, I had to re-release every single extension I make to fix this issue.
Unfortunately, this all now comes down to developers having good response times (unlikely, eh?). The have to add both name="adminForm" and id="adminForm" on their administrator forms in order to make them compatible with all current Joomla! versions (1.5, 1.7, 2.5). I suggest starting emailing the developers of your components, letting them know of this issue and the simple necessary workaround. In the mean time, you can open the files of your extensions, look for name="adminForm" and tuck in an id="adminForm" next to it.
I understand people's curiosity, but let's remain on topic. This topic is about problems we're having with K 1.7.x and J! 2.5.
