Question How to prepare Kunena for Joomla migration from 2.5 to 3?

Hello,

I am still running a Joomla 2.5 and am preparing to migrate it to Joomla 3. For this, I am supposed to update all Joomla extensions to the latest version so that they are supported by Joomla 3.

Currently I am running Kunena 3.0.4 and I wanted to update this to the latest version. However, I notice that the latest version is apparently only for Joomla 3.6 (when I check the "technical requirements" link on the Kunena 5 download page, I get a 404 Category not found).

So I assume that I am not able to update Kunena to the latest version? If so, what am I supposed to do? Can I still migrate to Joomla 3 (using the mini-migration method) without causing problems to my Kunena forum? And if not, what am I supposed to do?

Thanks.

Thank you for reporting, it's fixed now.

You can upgrade your Joomla, then install Kunena over the old version.

That is good to know, thank you.

I notice that PHP 5.4 is among the requirements, but the virtual server of my provider is still on PHP 5.3.28. Would this be a problem?

I have already asked the provider to update PHP on the server, but they say that they are phasing out the VPS I'm on and don't know yet exactly when new ones will become available. So I was hoping that I could at least still migrate to Joomla 3 on this server, but is that going to be possible with Kunena at all?

I'm sorry, but you get problems with Kunena 5.0.x and php 5.3. I'm also not sure whether it works with Kunena 4.0.12

Is there no version I can upgrade to, temporarily, that works on Joomla 3 and can still run in PHP 5.3?

I was hoping to have Joomla & extensions fully upgraded to Joomla 3 first, before I end up moving the website to a new virtual server, but if I can't update Kunena then that is a problem. I have asked the provider to either make a virtual server available within a reasonable time of no more than a few weeks, or to update PHP on the current virtual server anyway. If not, I'll have to change to another provider.

Hello,

I have (finally) been able to upgrade my website from Joomla 2.5 to 3.

After having updated Kunena to the latest version next (which did not give any errors or issues), however, the forums pages look like a mess. Menu items that are normally horizontal, are just vertical, and the pages lack any basic layout.

How can I correct this?

Things I already tried without success:

- Change to another general Joomla template to see if that would make a difference (it doesn't)
- Try the other template within Kunena itself
- Try the "diagnostics" tool in Kunena

Thanks!
