Kunena 5.1.14 Released - Security release (13 Aug 2019)
The Kunena team is proud to announce the arrival of Kunena 5.1.14 [K5.1.14] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for Joomla 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 5.1.14. This update fixed 1 security issue.
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.
Question Link Spam with Kunena 2.0
Example 1: example.com (this is the homepage url, but without the https:// or www. link elements) it's not clickable (this is correct and how it should be)
Example 2: example.com/page1 (note: the only diffrence is it's not the homepage. It's also without the https:// or www. link elements added to is, just likethe example above) it is clickable? The trailing page or folder makes Kunena "convert" it into a clickable link in error.
Why does the homepage work correctlyhhowever other pages are clickable (when they shouldn't be)?
Again, these are the two examples (only difference being one is the homepage, the other isn't):
Only difference is one is homepage, the other isn't the homepage. Both are without the https:// and www. link elements, so neither should be clickable, when they are without https:// and www. link elements.
And also xillibit option is very good because you can set a limit of 15 messages, if that user in this limit shows that the only interest shown is spamming them just ban him because you wont need that person!
Again, the users understand the rules, and prior they understoode how to make links unclickable, however now ability has been removed, because it's not possible post non-clicable urls now, because Kunena is converting non-homepage urls without the www. or http link attributes, into clickable links in error.
I'm actually fine with main urls (homepages) are okay: example.com (note it's not without the https:// or www.)
It's the other pages, that are always auto-converting to links, even without https:// or www
non homepage url: example.com/page1
homepage url: example.com
homepage with trailing slash: example.com/
(all of these urls were posted without http or www. in front of them or any url tags).
The same problem led me to this topic.
Since I have upgraded to Kunena 2.0, I have the same problem.
Administer a site complaints (already suffered many attacks) I receive span with malware, users ghost from romania and other countries.
Do not allow links in the topic would be the best solution.
We hope it will solve soon.
Thank you for your time.
