Kunena 6.3.2 released

The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.3.2 [K 6.3.2] in stable which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.4.x/5.0.x/5.1.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.2 / K 6.3 and issues discovered during the last development stages of K 6.3
Note: Please go to the Kunena Dashboard after an upgrade so that the Kunena database tables are also updated.

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.

Software: Joomla! 3.10.8 ; Kunena 5.2.5

Hello, 
We're updating our website to Joomla 4 and it looks like this Kunena Forum Package extension is not compatible with the upgrade. Will this affect our update? Do you have any instructions on how update from Joomla 3 Kunena 5 to Joomla 4 Kunena 6?
Thank you

Thank you for linking these instructions. Will this allow us to retain all of the posts that have been made on our site before the update, or will they be deleted when we uninstall Kunena on step 2?

2. Uninstall Kunena via the Joomla extension manager (it uninstalls the Forum along whith the Kunena menu)

Yes, all posts and topics will be preserved if you uninstall Kunena via the Joomla extension manager, because the Kunena database tables will not be removed. The attachments and the avatars will also be preserved.

Thanks for clarifying this. 

Once our site is updated, we'd like to move our Kunena Forum to a clean install of Joomla! 4 to build our new development site. Is there a procedure for how this is done? Where are these tables located?

In principle it is quite simple.
1. export all #__kunena tables and import them into the table of the new site.
2. Do the same with the Joomla user tables (you need these user tables because otherwise you don't have the related users for the forum posts).
3. adjust the prefixes to the new database
4. install Kunena
5. import from the folder /media/kunena the folders avatars and attachments
That's all.
