Blue Eagle 5 v1.5.4 has been Released (13 Sep 2020)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena template Blue Eagle 5 v1.5.4 which is now available for download. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in development.
The information given in this category is intended to guide users who want to use various third-party products with Kunena and, mostly, was written by Kunena users. The information here is not necessarily accurate, up-to-date nor is it intended to replace the support given by the developers of other Joomla extensions.
If you are having problems then, for your own benefit, it would save us all a lot of time if you would kindly post your configuration report when you ask for help from this forum. If you do not post your configuration report we will not ask you for it but you will probably not get your problem solved, either.
Solved Kunena and EasySocial
Else at the end I guess many people have to take a decisions if they want to leave Kunena/Jomsocial for EasySocial/EasyDiscuss/other forum.
For me I like Kunena a lot and really want it's to work with EasySocial.
But maybe this is a to early questions, maybe should wait little bit and then all is solved.
In other words, you should ask the developers of EasySocial if they have any plans to integrate their products with Kunena; the Kunena team has no plans to write software that interoperates with EasySocial.
I am the lead developer from StackIdeas and I am not entirely sure where did you guys heard about EasySocial being licensed under proprietary license. This is incorrect because EasySocial is released under the GNU GPL license
We do love to build strong integrations with Kunena and we are looking forward for ideas if you need any help or any valid license, we'll be glad to set up one for you guys.
Let me know.
Thank you for your helpful input to this topic. We appreciate it.
According to your website :
This does not seem to conform to the GNU GPL licence. We don't want to get into any legal entanglement here, but if there are conditions of your licensing terms that exclude your products from listing on the Joomla Extensions Directory, we would prefer to steer the "safe" legal course.
STACKIDEAS.COM PROPRIETARY USE LICENSE
That having been said, the Kunena APIs are published as open source and are available to any Joomla extension developer to use in any way they desire (subject, of course, to the same intellectual property conditions that apply to all software licensed under the GPL).
In responding to lagen's request for information about the plans that the Kunena team has to develop a plugin for integrating EasySocial with Kunena, I think I have made clear our position. We have no plans to develop the integration that lagen has requested.
Wow, thanks for the quick reply and appreciate it very much!
I don't think you guys should worry about that block in the license file because that is only to protect our theme files. The core files are all licensed under the GNU GPL v2 license. In fact that license block was suggested by the team from JED as some of our templates were being copied by 3rd party extension and they did mention that we are allowed to license our theme files (non core files) to be licensed under a different license.
I would love to have you guys on board to build a strong integration between EasySocial and Kunena but if there's no plans for this, we'll have to build it ourselves I guess.
The Kunena team has an ambitious program of work on its hands at the moment so that we can stay on top of our game. These activities have stretched the team's resources considerably.
We're always on the look-out for skilled developers to work with the project to enrich Kunena in ways that are not always possible when there's only so much work one can do with the time (and money) available. In this case, it is fortunate that we've opened a dialog with Stackideas. I think it would advantage both Kunena and EasySocial if you contacted our lead developer directly (his address is on our team page) and let him know what ideas you have in mind.
Thank you so much for taking the time to respond here!
