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.

× This section is for questions directly related to the procedure for installing Kunena for the first time or upgrading from an older version of Kunena.

Use this category:
  • to ask how to install or upgrade; or
  • 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.

Question I've just updated my website to J3.7, but no signal to update Kunena to the v5?

Hello !
(sorry I'm french, my english is a bit rusty)
I've just updated my Joomla website in the last version (3.7.3), and Kunena is now running in the 4.0.12 version.
But I'm wondering why I don't have an updating signal to Kunena 5 ?
I can always download it and install it by FTP, but I'm afraid it will erase all the parameters (this forum is quite active and big...).
Please, someone can give me some insight about what I should do ?

Thanks.
Christine

You can install it over the old version, no topics (or posts) will be deleted, but the template Blue Eagle will removed. The fastest way is the installation via url.
But nevertheless important! Create a backup previously. Better it would be if you try it on a test page first.

It will saved in the database. If you want, you can also create a extra backup from all kunena tables.
In principle, if you save the kunena tables and the folder "media/kunena" you have all what you need as backup.
