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.
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 Submit button not working properly
After entering a message into the box and clicking on Submit, the page hangs - this continues for a few minutes until the server times out. However, the new message has been written to the database tables. If I refresh the page I see the success message at the top of the page, but the form for submitting the message is still displayed, with the text of the message still in it.
The same thing happens when writing a message using Kunena Discuss.
This doesn't happen on the production site, even though the content of the website is identical, the only differences are database name and login details etc. The new host is running PHP 7.3.17, the old host PHP 7.3.3.
I've tried changing browsers and I've tried changing Joomla templates - browsers make no difference, but there is one template where the message posting works normally - Protostar. However, the Protostar template doesn't suit my website - though if necessary I might be able to adapt it, though it would be non-trivial. I've tried Shape5 Vertex and Joomlart T3 Blank, but the problem occurs with them too. If I can't get Kunena to work, I'll have to abandon moving to the new hosting service.
Do you have any idea what might be the cause? Is there some way I can use the Console to trace the problem?

Blue Eagle works with all your Joomla templates
Crypsis works only with Protostar
1. It could be possible a file has been broken during the move and it helps if you install Kunena over it.
2. Possible is a conflictt between Crypsis and Shape5 Vertex as well Joomlart T3 Blank
3. Script or CSS compression causes an error
Do you have any CSS or script optimization tools on your page enabled? If yes, disable these and afterwards try to send a message.
Choose Crypsis and the Shape or Blank template and open the console (tab network). Then click on Reply. Now check which scripts of the template running. Block the scripts one by one with the browser tool and every time try to submit a reply.
Is there some way I can use the Console to trace the problem?
Try the same with the css files. Maybe you can find out which file cause a conflict.
Eventually even Protostar stopped working with either Kunena template - strange, as nothing else had changed.
However, thanks to your advice, I've now identified the script that's causing the problem, but I'm not sure where that leaves me because it's part of Advanced Modules Manager, which I regard as an essential tool.
If I block /media/advancedmodules/js/frontediting.min.js everything works fine.
There's another frontediting script, which is media/system/js/frontediting.js.
As I said before, this doesn't cause a problem on production website, which is hosted elsewhere.
I've installed this module manager now (7.12.4), but also can't reproduce this problem (on my test page running PHP 7.3.17).
Try to disable the modules on the forum pages one by one). Disable also the top and jtouch-nav menu if there running over modules.
It doesn't explain why the issue only arises on the new host's server and not on the old host - it must be something to do with the server settings. Perhaps I should let Peter at Regular Labs know that there's a potential issue that he might be able to fix.
Thanks to you, I've learned something - which is how to use another bit of the developer tools on Firefox. It's a long learning curve, but I'm gradually picking up more skills.
Sometimes any errors drowses long time unnoticed in a web page and a small change in the web page like a server setting, update, move etc... can trigger it, that he is visible. The cause of such mysterious mistakes is mostly very difficult to find.
