Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first 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 RC1 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.

What is the reason why users are not allowed to write 24 hours? In Kunena it is not possible to allow messages after a certain time. If you want prevent spam, you can moderate new users. Enter a number of posts which reviewed by moderators prior to publishing.
You find this option in the Kunena configuration -> tab Users -> Moderate New Users.
In principle it's enough if you enter the number 1, because spammers (bots) already write spam in theyr first post. So you can delete the message instead publish.

Not allowing them to write for 24 hours, is because we can ban them from spamming by looking at their profile we can detect what user is a scammer.

I have found "moderate new users" but it doesn't give a time limit on new users so how long does kunena give for new users to be a normal user? A day? week? 2 weeks?

Cheers

Kunena has no time limit for new users. There is no matter whether the user writes on first day or after a month. If you use this option, the number of posts to be checked remain always the same (only those messages are counted which were allowed by moderators).
When this number is reached, he can publish his message without previous control by a moderator.
