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.

× Topics must relate to a currently supported version of Kunena. If you are unsure what is the current supported version of Kunena, please go to the download page.

If you are having problems then, for your own benefit, it would save us all a lot of time if you would kindly post your configuration report when you ask for help from this forum. If you do not post your configuration report we will not ask you for it but you will probably not get your problem solved, either.

Question Edited Posts Marked As New

3 years 6 months ago #1 by melvins138

Is it possible for edited posts to be marked as "New" or distinguished in some way on the front end?

User posts a message, then sometime later goes and edits it, and add content outside our terms.

Currently, I have it set so only certain Access Levels can post or reply. The general public cannot post or reply. There are few new posts to our forum, maybe 5 or so a week currently. So moderators will occasionally check those few to see that no self-promotion or selling occurs.

The mod will log on, every few days, and see that all new posts since their last visit, see the category folder turns green with a new icon, and then see the new posts, which are also green. They will go in, read the posts, and then act accordingly.

Normally speaking, most user never edit their posts. They generally just reply.

Occasionally, though rarely, a sneaky person will post something, wait a few days, then edit it with sales or self-promotion.

If the moderator has already seen the post, they currently have no way of knowing if there was an edit, besides, repeatedly checking the posts.

I know I can turn off editing, but rarely do anyone edit, but it's nice to have for misspellings and such... so I would rather not turn it off completely, due to a few bad apples.

So short question: How can I show an edit on the front end like I can with new posts?
Is there a way to notify the moderator of the edit, or mark the post as "new" again, so the moderator can know an edit was made?
