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.

Thanks for your question. I'm not aware of a plugin (or another Joomla extension) that currently exists to show someone—the site administrator, perhaps—a count of the what message attachments in Kunena people may be downloading (for example, PDF or ZIP files or anything else for that matter) or the number of times those attachment files have been downloaded from your website.

There are, however, other file repository tools for Joomla (search the other file repository tools for Joomla for "download control"). Instead of using the "attachments" feature in Kunena, you could upload your "downloadables" to a "file repository" and reference them with links in a forum message. Most of the "file repository" products that I've used allow you find out how many times people have downloaded files from your website.

Another suggestion is to use some analytic tool—e.g Google Analytics—(perhaps you could set up a filter) to see what files are being clicked on. :unsure:

But, in simple terms as far as Kunena (specifically) is concerned, I think the answer to your question is no.
