Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release 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 B1 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.

Hi,
on my installation I use Crypsis and have the feature 'Recover crash and store fields' set to yes.
Works perfectly...
almost :)
because when I create a new topic and fill in all the fields, press submit the topic is created.
so far so good.
When I create a second topic, all the fields are prefilled with the values of the previous topic...

this is confusing! When a new topic is created you are safe to assume that the 'remembered' values are not needed any more and so do not need to be recovered :)

Hello,

I think the values should be cleared when you create the new topic/reply, i need to look to do it

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

Hi, although the setting its name 'Recover crash and store fields' the main usage is I think the switching from quick reply to full reply > fields are restored.
But the question is how you recover from a crash? when I create a new topic and fill the fields > my site crashes and I restart, then I will again create a new topic and the fields are restored. So I think the challenge is on how to differentiate between a new topic and a new topic due to a crash recovery.

Thinking of that. perhaps the fields should NOT be cleared when you start a new topic, but should be cleared when successfully posting a topic / reply (at that time there is no need for recovery as your information is successfully published.
