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.

Hi, is there a way that users can either opt in or out on their profiles to whether they get emails i.e. when new topics are created (not just check this box to be notified of replies to this topic).

Our forum is setup to send everyone an email when a new topic is added, but they can't choose whether or not they get them.

As a user on this forum, I can't see that I have an option to do so.

Thanks!

Users can disable the option in their profile (Profile -> Edit -> Forum Settings). When subscription is disabled, indeed the checkbox remain but is not marked and the user get no mail.
This works for new topics/messages and categories, but currently subcribed topics/categories the users must unsubscribe.

Hi Rich,

Thanks for your response.

Is there an option to create private categories? The issue for us is that our previous developer built our system, however hid a lot of functionality.

Currently, we have separate categories setup and members will be part of these categories, if you're not assigned to these categories, you cant see the posts within them.

If a topic is raised and you are part of this category, you will receive an email. However we want users to be able to decide whether or not they receive these emails but still be assigned to the categories i.e. they can login and see them but wont be notified when a topic is posted.

Does this sound like something the system can do?

Again, appreciate your response.

Yes, you can create private categories for certain members. docs.kunena.org/en/faq/categories-only-for-certain-user-groups

If a topic is raised and you are part of this category, you will receive an email. However we want users to be able to decide whether or not they receive these emails but still be assigned to the categories i.e. they can login and see them but wont be notified when a topic is posted.

Please see my previous post above.

I recommend that you disable the option in the Kunena Configuration (tab) Users -> Check Subscription Box. So every user can decide for themselves, whether he want subscribe a category or not. Email you get only for subscribed topics or categories.
