Kunena 5.2.8 released and Blue eagle 1.6.7 released (02 Jan 2022)

The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.2.8 [K 5.2.8] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.10/3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.2 and issues discovered during the development stages of previous version of K5.2.

If you are using blue template you need to update to 1.6.7 version to ensure to have a compatible version with K5.2.8.

Important note: (07 Jan 2022) If you have created a Kunena custom.css, create a backup of it. Due to an error, this file will be deleted during an upgrade.

× 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 Fixing JomSocial's plugin with Kunena

7 months 3 weeks ago - 7 months 3 weeks ago #1 by brentwilliams
Here is the scenario: A guest makes a post on the Kunena forum. Now, when someone looks at that post, if they are a registered user and logged in, then the name of the author of that post shows their own name! In other words, if I go look at that guest post, it shows up as having my name.  I have found the fix, although it is probably not the best approach, so feel free to share an alternative!

I am using the following:

JomSocial v. 4.7.8
Kunena v. 5.2.4
Kunena - JomSocial Integration v. 5.2.4

 I adjusted libraries/kunena/user/user.php around line 750.I replaced this:
return $profile->getProfileName($this);
With this:
if($this->userid == 0 ) {
			return $this->name;
			return $profile->getProfileName($this);
