The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.2.8 [K 5.2.8] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.10/3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.2 and issues discovered during the development stages of previous version of K5.2.

If you are using blue template you need to update to 1.6.7 version to ensure to have a compatible version with K5.2.8.

Thank you for posting this question, because I have the same problem in many of my Kunena Forum URLs, but I do not have a solution, yet.

Some info: I noticed that the URL to this post contains some ID numbers:
Therefore, I conclude that ID numbers are typically placed in URLs by Kunena.

More info: I just had the same problem for Joomla content articles, and I found a solution for just Joomla (not Kunena). However, that solution might give some insight into the solution for Kunena URLs, which contain undesirable ID numbers.
Some Joomla.org forum posts said that article ID numbers appear in the URL when that article has not been attached to a menu as a specific menu item. In Joomla, I got rid of article ID numbers in the URLs by connecting each article to a menu. This was very easily done using the free Joomla extension called "Kazaam!". Joomla Extension directory lists Kazaam! as a paid download, but the author's website has a free version.

More info: Several years ago, I ran a Kunena Forum on Joomla 1.x. The Kunena URLs on my old site did not have ID numbers in the URLs. I verified this by looking at the same Kunena post from back then and from now. One difference between my old and my new Kunena forums was that my old site used the Joomla extension sh404SEF, which has a Kunena plugin. Back then, sh404SEF was free and it created search engine friendly URLS. Now, sh404SEF costs $44 (for one year) and includes SEF URLS, analytics, and security.

Maybe someone has a better or less expensive solution to removing ID numbers from Kunena URLs.

I have been able to remove the id numbers from Kunena URLs, by using JoomSEF which has a Kunena plugin. I chose JoomSEF to experiment with, because it has a free version..

we are using the joomla router, which needs it.

The only solutions is now to use a third party sef component. Until the feature is fully working on joomla itself.

In another post in this forum, I described a setup that worked for me. I'm putting that link here to help other people and because I recently needed that info again, but I could not find it in this thread.

The end result of this setup was that when Kunena created a new URL, Kunena would put ID numbers at the end of the URL. But, on the good side, Kunena could also use the same URL without the ID number. Thus, Kunena could resolve backlinks and URLs that did not contain ID numbers.
