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.

Solved diagnostics in Kunena and "broken" elements

Hi,
by diagnostics in Kunena periodically arise messageBodyMissingMessage, messageOrphaned, attachmentOrphaned, userTopicOrphaned and other "broken" elements of forum.

Questions.
1. How and why do such "broken" elements appear?
In other words, how to avoid them.

2. Is it possible to look at these items before deleting in Kunena? (among them may be important). For example, create a file with information about them. Or should we look for them in the database?

3. To question 2. Kunena offers to remove "broken" elements.
Maybe the developers will offer an alternative? For example, in a specially created topic "Diagnostics" create a post for each broken element, for example, the text of a message without a topic, a post without a parent etc. Then an admin can decide, what to do with such elements.

Regards

This option shows orphaned database entries. I give you 2 examples:

1. Go in the backend and check the number of orphaned attachments
2. Click in the frontend on reply and upload an attachment
3. Click the Cancel button
The numbers of orphaned attachments are the same as before, the abort with the Cancel button is correct and the attachment entrie in the database is removed.

Now an uncorrect abort
1. Click in the frontend on reply and upload an attachment
2. Use instead the Cancel button the browser back option or click on any menu item
3. Go in the backend and check the number of orphaned attachments
Now you have additional an orphaned attachment, because Kunena not know, that you've aborted and the entrie in the database remain. But it lacks the associated message and therfore the entrie is orphaned.

I see on your image 12 orphaned attachments. So you will find in the database table *__kunena_attachments 12 entries with mesid = 0

We have noticed that's hard for admins to check it without further informations. Therefore is planned, to improve this in the future, so you get more informations before you delete.
