Kunena 5.2 RC3 Released (29 Nov 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the third public release candidate 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 RC3 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 users are getting email-spammed as if posts are being made, but they are not

I'm getting 20 emails a day from spammers that have somehow managed to hack Kunena's email system. The posts look as if someone made a reply to a thread, but there's actually no post. It usually says the post was made by "???". Also, the link to my website is not quite right - it uses either the IP address or non-www link (my site forces www). When I click the link to go to their spam post (in the email it shows a lot of spam links) there is actually no post made at all on the forum. This is obviously angering all of my users to the point I had to shut down the forum.

Is this a known issue or was I hacked?

I'm using 5.1.14

Kunena has no own E-Mail system, they are send by Joomla. But try, whether the users get nevertheless emails if you set Send E-mails to Users is No in the Kunena configuration. So you can see if it's a general problem.
