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.

× 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.

K 2.0 support will cease on 31 August 2013 and this section of the forum will be closed and archived after that time and no further questions will be answered about this version.

Dear Developers, Thanks! for your job

I have upgrade Kunena on a live site, from 1.7.2 to 2.0.2 in a Joomla 2.5.6 website.
It's a greek site
Before doing it I verified a lot of things about the new versión.
But, but, one thing I' have not checked are the URLs generated by the new version. Rather I verified but I didn't realise that the new version convert the topic name to lowercase. It was a big mistake.

I'm not an expert, and may be with latin character there are no differences. But now, Google are removing all my olds kunenas urls where there were capital letters from their index.


I have try to make a redirect 301 with joomla redirect manager or with htaccess and it was impossible. I have follow all possibles tips without success.
Rewrite mode is working well. May be the fact of using greeks url are a problem for using redirects. I don't know.



What can I do? Can I patch Kunena to construct the ursl like before?


Thank you for any help

I don't know, either, why things are not working as you would like them to work on your site. I would suggest that, in the first instance, you use the standard Joomla SEO approach (see Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in the Wiki) with a "vanilla-flavoured" .htaccess file.

If this does not work, please post your Joomla SEO settings information and it may also help to see how you've defined your Kunena menu. Your configuration report contains the information about how you've defined your forum menu items.

Hej, because I 've changed a little the htaccess of the production environment I tested what you said in a test environment. I downloaded de last htaccess.txt from Joomla 2.5 and I used it in my test environment.
Then I tried to make a redirect 301 of one of my urls (may be you will not see it well because the greek characters), converting the capital letters of the topic to small letters.

This is the old url : www.fenjoc.cu.cc/managaiaj25/forum/16-Υγ...πεία-μύκητες-Candida

This is the new one : www.fenjoc.cu.cc/managaiaj25/forum/16-Υγ...πεία-μύκητες-candida

I tried (using URL Encoding) :

redirect 301 /forum/16-%CE%A5%CE%B3%CE%B5%CE%AF%CE%B1-%CE%98%CE%B5%CF%81%CE%B1%CF%80%CE%B5%CE%AF%CE%B1-%CE%BA%CE%B1%CE%B9-%CE%91%CF%85%CF%84%CE%BF%CE%AF%CE%B1%CF%83%CE%B7/45-%CE%A6%CF%85%CF%83%CE%B9%CE%BA%CE%B7-%CE%B8%CE%B5%CF%81%CE%B1%CF%80%CE%B5%CE%AF%CE%B1-%CE%BC%CF%8D%CE%BA%CE%B7%CF%84%CE%B5%CF%82-Candida www.fenjoc.cu.cc/managaiaj25/forum/16-%C...%CE%B5%CF%82-candida


It doesn't work.

We have not tested your issue using your customised .htaccess file. Perhaps there is another member of the community who has done this and may be able to offer you assistance.

I do not know, in what way specifically, how "converting" URLs or topic names into lower [Latin] case may affect the way that web pages are treated by search engines like Google. These kinds of matters are not within my technical knowledge. Perhaps someone else has some knowledge that may assist you. I, personally, do not have that knowledge, sorry.

Thanks. Anywhere now is too late. Google have removed all my old urs and I've lost the page ranking of them.

I have another question related with K 2- urls.


Why I'm getting two differents urls for every page of a multipage topic ? One with the keywords "limit" and "start" and other one with only the keyword "start"

Here you can see an example:

/forum/24-Τοκετός/52-φυσιολογικοσ-τοκετοσ-μετα-απο-καισαρικη-vbac?limit=30&start=990
/forum/24-Τοκετός/52-φυσιολογικοσ-τοκετοσ-μετα-απο-καισαρικη-vbac?start=990

Thank you
