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.

Question Best way to promote a post?

Please help,

I will like to start selling "Promotion Service" within my forum:
Only for existing posts within the forum
Only internal promotion
Payments made via Paypal

For example, if someone is willing to pay US$10 for promote his post in the forum...
I need a solution to promote his post in a effectively manner with a semi or fully automatic process via Paypal checkout or something like that.

I think it's a sin to not monetize your site if you have the proper knowledge and tools.

a brainstorm is welcome ;)

I will be completely open and honest with you and say that I do not think it's possible to automatically "promote" a message or topic within a Kunena forum based on some monetary "triggering" mechanism. By all means, if you want to promote a message in some way, there are probably a thousand ways to do that.

You could, for example, create a custom module that is displayed on your forum pages that links to a "promoted" message.

This is not really a problem that can be addressed by Kunena, per se; it's more of a general website management issue; everyone will have a different opinion as to the best way to tackle this issue. I would suggest that this topic has been posted in the wrong forum category on this website. In my opinion, it would be better relocated in the Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla category ... but what would I know? I'm only a simple, ordinary user around here.
