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 Remove information from user's profile (country, sex etc)

2 years 4 months ago - 2 years 4 months ago #1 by kunenauser40
I read that the new GDPR would treat as "sensitive data" the sex of a person (and I'm not sure about the country), and in the forum all the threads and posts under the avatars of the users are displaying the sex of the users and I would like to ask how to remove it and if possible completely delete it from the options of the user so users to cannot enter the "sex".

Is there an option somewhere to remove it in the configuration? If not, is there a permanent way to do this one time and over? (I mean don't change a php file and in the next kunena update this php file to be overwritten and to must do it in every update). But if there is no
other way, then I'm OK to edit a php file after every update of kunena....

Also I suggest to kunena developers if they can to add this feature in a next version so the administrator can select in configuration what fields the users can write / display in their profile.
