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 Delete and Restore entire Category (with all messages)

4 years 4 months ago - 4 years 4 months ago #1 by kunenauser40
Hi to all,

in my forum I have a secret category only for the moderators of the site and can be viewed only from moderators or a user with super user rights.

I want to give a backup of my site to a person (web designer) to do some work, but the problem is that I don't want that person to see this category because we have some confidential conversations there.

So I was thinking to delete this category completely from the control panel of joomla/kunena just before I give him the backup of my website and to restore this category when he will finish the job.

So, I would like to ask you how to restore a deleted category with all the messages from the backup?
(Let'a say that the category is named "SECRET CATEGORY" and it includes 10 threads with 100 posts)

If you have another way to suggest except of deleting completely the category from kunena control panel please also tell me.

Thank you all :)

I think you should install the backup of your site on a test site, then remove the categories that you want and then do a backup of this test site to give at someone else

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