Important Support for JomSocial with Kunena add-ons

10 years 6 months ago - 10 years 4 months ago #1 by sozzled
This is important information for all users of JomSocial and Kunena.

Kunena, before K 3.0, included the means to optionally download and install several add-on features developed by the Kunena team. These additional features were:
  • My Kunena Plug-in for JomSocial
  • Kunena Menu Plug-in for JomSocial
  • Kunena Groups Plug-in for JomSocial

At various times throughout the development of Kunena, there have also been other products developed by the team with JomSocial in mind. These features were developed by the Kunena team to be used primarily with the Kunena website at a time when JomSocial was used at this site. When the team decided not to continue to use JomSocial at this site, the continued interest in, and activity with, these add-ons also gradually faded.

When we removed JomSocial from this site a year ago, the Kunena team continued to update those add-ons (for the remainder of K 2.0) that we had used here for the benefit of people who used JomSocial on their sites. This was done without any partnership with, or financial assistance from, members of this community or the JomSocial team.

A decision was taken during the development of K 3.0 to cease making these add-ons for JomSocial. This decision was based on the available time required and to ensure that K 3.0 would be delivered as soon as possible. When the decision was made, Kunena team members approached the JomSocial developers and made available all the source code that was used to make these add-ons . That is where the Kunena teams' responsibility should end.

With K 2.0.4 at end of life, support for that version will be decommissioned shortly. The Kunena team announced a while ago that updating the JomSocial-related plugins and modules would be taken over by the JomSocial developers (assuming, of course, it is in the interests of the JomSocial development team to do that). Therefore, the Kunena team has no intention of updating, fixing or dealing with issues arising from the use of the JomSocial-related add-ons that were available (at no cost) from this website.

K 2.0.4 will remain available for downloads (for those who require it) but it will be offered "as is" and, after 31 August this year, the categories that relate to K 2.0.4 will be closed from further discussion.

We understand that some people may be disappointed but these are the facts. People need also to understand that www.kunena.org is not the "support forum" for JomSocial. If people would like assistance in connection with the Kunena add-ons developed for JomSocial (or if they have their own ideas how best to adapt these add-ons) then they are advised to either

a) wait patiently for others in this community to provide relevant information; or

b) contact JomSocial to enquire about what plans they have for the Kunena-related add-ons that may be used with their software.
