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 Brand new install issues

It's been many years since any client asked for a forum, but, having used Kunena in the past, I went straight to it. WOW! It's changed SO much I don't even recognize it. Firstly, it worked out of the box. Seems this is not the case anymore.

Installed, set up a bunch of categories, then added a menu item (Category List) to one of the site menus. Initially it kept going to a 404. Somehow, not sure what has changed, it goes to a 404 but displays "Layout common/default not found."

I did initially actually have it display the forum, but I couldn't click into any topics, and there was no styling (unlike old versions which had a starting point).

Right now, I'm wondering if this is the same great product it used to be - one which was pre-setup. It looks like everything is on the user now.

If you get any Layout common/default errors, that's meaning that your kunena menu isn't correct. Please use the default kunena menu.
Load the kunena menu as system alias, pointed to the kunena forum menu item.
