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.

  • if you encountered problems during the installation or upgrade procedure.

Use a different category to ask questions about problems that you may be having after you successfully installed or upgraded the currently supported version. If you are unsure what is the current supported version of Kunena, please go to the download page.

I'm getting the following message when replying to messages in a forum
SMTP connect() failed.
> https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/wiki/Troubleshooting

This appears to be a fault with the host, but they've asked me where the script is in Kunena that does the mailing, could someone tell me, please?

Also, is it, as it appears, using PHPMailer? I can't find any mail configuration in Kunena so I'd assumed it would use the Joomla settings, but I'm set up to use the SMTP mailer, so I'm a bit confused. Other mail from the site works, just not the Kunena notifications.

Lastly, I'm not sure this is the right place for this, but I have no rights whatsoever in the general forum :(

Vlad.

To get kunena email working:

set the email address on the kunena configuration: at Forum E-mail Address option.

Then all emails, are send by the joomla mailer.

Thanks 810, but I'm afraid that doesn't fix it (if you mean "Forum E-mail address".on the "General" tab of the Kunena configuration).

I'm fairly sure it's my hosts' new platform that is causing the trouble, it wasn't a problem on their old platform, so I just need to know where the script is so I can tell them what to look at.

we use: JFactory::getMailer(); so the joomla mailer

Hi,

I have the same problem described above.
I'm using a smtp server.
I put in the field 'Forum E-mail Address' a valid address, but the notification emails are still sent using php mailer (I can see that in the header of the email).

Is there something else I can do to use the smtp server with Kunena?

Thanks.

BR

Nicolas
