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.

Question Updating

I have inherited a Joomla v.2.5.18 site which currently has a Kunena Forum, version 3.0.3 using version 1.7.2 of the Blue Eagle template.

I looking to upgrade to Joomla 3.

The forum has been well used over the years and I'd like to keep everything there. Is there any way of transferring all the forum posts, files, users etc. or is the existing forum too old to move across please?

I appreciate this version may not be officially supported now but is it too late to save it ?

Fingers crossed

Before you begin the upgrade, install as intermediate step Kunena 4.0.12.
From this version it should later possible, to upgrade to the current Kunena version without problems, when your Joomla is up to date.
But the Blue Eagle template will removed, because Crypsis is the default template now.
