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.

Question Contract Bridge modifications

More
5 years 9 months ago #1 by jkapela
Hi,

I just installed Kunena on Joomla 3.3.6. I'm trying to create private site for a group of my contract bridge buddies. I have no experience with neither Joomla or PHP. Setup went very smooth and we are able to use forum and create articles for ourself. Unforunately it appears that we miss very important features we can't live without.

- ability to insert bridge symbols with a code: !s (spades), !h (hearts), !d (diamonds),!c (clubs). This is the standard of inserting brdge suit symbols used in biggest online bridge club BBO and it has been widely adopted in many other bridge forums
- ability to insert bridge hands played on BBO or prepared offline. BBO has some very neat diagram that can be inserted via their handviewer script. The documentation is here: www.bridgebase.com/tools/hvdoc.html

Is anybody able to help? I know very good php programmers who could help me creating some plugin but I need to know if it can be done and what documentation is needed to be read to start working on it.

If this topis is in wrong part of the forum please move it.
Any help will be much appreciated.

This should be possible at zero cost by using your own emoticons/smileys for the card suits. Instructions on how to create your own emoticons and shortcuts is here: Smiley management

I'm not sure how to go about integrating the "handviewer script" into Kunena but I'm guessing that the solution won't come cheaply. When you consider that Kunena is a discussion forum, it may be possible to "simulate" the plane play by having members post their "cards" played and people will probably soon get the hang of it. As a "zero cost" idea, a kind of instruction manual would be one way of tackling this job. Just a thought.
