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 Need round profile images and connections with other users

4 years 2 months ago #1 by pinklink
Hi, new to Kunena. I am looking to have round profile user images. I installed other template Crypsis because someone on this forum said it had that template installed but I don't see that in the settings?

Also, I'd like people to be able to connect better with other users besides email. I had JomSocial installed but it was too much like Facebook. I would still like people to be able to message other users, and possibly follow them (not friend, like Facebook) so I am looking on here to see if there has been a plugin or add-on developed for that.

Thank you!

1) on the crypsis template settings ->features -> Avatar Type = circle
2) We have only thank you, you can't follow the persons, only topics and categories/sections
If you want to have pm then you can install uddeim, then enable the kunena - uddeim plugin

Hi there. I am a new Kunena user as well so I can not answer all of it, but some...

I currently have a round user profile picture thanks to integration with Easy Profile.

Also my user names in Kunena link to the native Joomla user profile pages, customized with Easy Profile. This gives some advantage:
Easy Profile allows a Joomla native contact person to be automaticly generated upon user creation. Then there is a contact button on the users profile page.
Also in Easy Profile you can easily add any contactfield you would like.

The only thing I do not have from your request is the option to follow a certain user.

Hope this helps.
Good luck !! ;)
