Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public release candidate 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 RC1 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 Form submits as Posts

4 years 3 months ago #1 by frobtek
Is there a setting or plugin that will allow a category child to be a form, that when submitted would be a post in that sub-forum?

(running Joom 3.6 and KF 4.0.11)

I found the Integrator for BreezingForms Lite.
I have got the form now submitting to the correct DB table, which effectively creates a post.

Now here are my issues:
1. How do you input dynamic values?
- I added several hidden elements to my form so I could manually assign static values (i.e. category value, to get it to put the post in the correct place), but now things like the timestamp and subject require dynamic values, and I'm unsure how to do that. (I'm assuming it has something to do w/ the individual code per Incoming=>outgoing data integration line.)

2. How do you concatenate several Form elements into a single database field?
- I need this to show up as a post and it doesn't seem to add them together if you set multiple incoming elements to a single outgoing database field.

3. Formatting the post.
-Once the raw data is being submitted, how do you change the aesthetics?

I haven't found any extensive documentation for the integrator, so I'm not sure where else to go. If anyone wants to help, that'd be awesome!
