Kunena 5.2 RC3 Released (29 Nov 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the third public release candidate 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 RC3 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.

I don't think there's any right or wrong answer to this question but I would like to know how strongly the community feels about the issue.

As far as I can tell, adding ".html" to a page suffix achieves nothing "extra" as far as how a site URL appears. From my experience, looking around the internet, most professionally-run websites do not include page suffixes (e.g. .htm, .html, .jsp, .php, .asp, etc.). That's just the evidence that I have observed.

Joomla has the following option:

Global Configuration » Site » SEO Settings » Add suffixes to URLs = Yes

I do not know whether this option is fully supported in Joomla. I do not know what issues this creates if people use that option (or if people do not use that option). We know that there's a relationship between using this option and an effect has on "message preview": see the topic K 2.0.2+3: problems with preview .

I do not know to what extent that Joomla supports this option; however, I would like to know how many people use the option. I have created this poll to gauge public opinion in attempting to quantify the extent to which site owners depend on feature in their webcraft. The poll question is simple. Do you use the feature, yes or no.

People who use the setting can give us their reasons why they think it's important.

My personal opinion is that this setting is unnecessary. Joomla routing takes care of the things well enough without needing to add .html to all your pages, anyway. But maybe there are other reasons that I am unaware of.

Thank you. B)
