Kunena 6.3.2 released

The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.3.2 [K 6.3.2] in stable which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.4.x/5.0.x/5.1.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.2 / K 6.3 and issues discovered during the last development stages of K 6.3
Note: Please go to the Kunena Dashboard after an upgrade so that the Kunena database tables are also updated.

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 Social media Sharing

6 years 6 months ago #1 by benign01
Kunena is a superb component. far better than any other joomla forum
Is there any way, using Kunena that I can have a log of which users are sharing posts etc to social media . I want to know for example how many shares a user has made and if possible to which social platform they made the share to. Any ideas

that is (currently) not possible. Kunena is using a client side script for creating the share buttons. This js script is not integrated with Joomla.
I have developed a joomla plugin based on this script that you can also use withing Kunena ( onlinecommunityhub.nl/community-tools/th...ng-buttons-in-kunena ). It adds the possibility to 'extend' the shared url with google analytics via Custom Campaigns: this can give you insights in what button / platform is being used the most / least etc.
This is not coupled with the actual user doing the sharing.
It could be extended with that feature (need to investigate if there are limitations as to what Google analytics can measure) . The 'problem' (not sure if that is a problem or not) is that Google analytics measures all the shares, so also the retweets (for twitter) from other users. So it is not only the initial count, but it gives insights into the total 'impact' of the share.

sharing = caring

Interesting. Guess I could just ask the user to send me proof of his share via email etc. Might be a way round for now
