The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public release candidate 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.

K 5.2.0 RC1 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.

Question Old joomla - yeah I know...

Hi guys,

I know that, what I'm trying to do makes no sense for most of you, still I have to use old Artisteer generated template that works on Joomla 3.3... and I can't force it to run on any never joomla version. Artister project got stucked... so am I.

So, I just made a fresh install of joomla3.3 and it seems non of the versions of Kunena can be installed.
What I get is an error message about a need to upgrade joomla to at least 3.6 (can't do that for that project)

Or while trying older Kunena versions starting from 2.0.4; 3,0.5 and newer I get the message:

Error

I'm sorry, but we do not support old versions, which also contain security risks. There can be no compelling reason to continue operating an unsafe website, certainly not so that you can keep an outdated template.
It's your decision, if you want to run an insecure website, but here is the wrong place if you want help for it.

I understand that risk,

Still I believe people here have some knowledge about old versions...
So your statement has some sense, but on the other hand makes no sense.

There are some sites running on old CMS versions not because it's administrator's choice, byt because he/she has no choice, because of old or not compatible modules, components with newer joomla versions.
The same goes with some production machines in factories which still run on Windows 98... because they can't use newer windows.
There are people riding classic cars, that have no seat belts, no ac, or airbags...

Maybe for you it makes no sense, but that's how it is in the real world.

Still even there is some risk or no support. It has t work, so I hope I can find someone willing to help.

Meanwhile I see that Joomla3.9 has no problem with my php/MySQL versions, so it's not the case.
Any clue which version of Kunena is suitable for Joomla 3.2?

Yes, but they have no support from Microsoft. The same with modules which are not compatible for new Joomla versions. Most of these projects are complete out (inclusive support), otherwise it would be adjusted for new Joomla versions. But that should not be the discussion here.
I'm sorry, maybe I had your question wrongly understood and my answer was not correctly enunciated. You can install all versions which you want, but if you have problems with this outdated version, you get no support here.

That is not a secret.
Here you can see all steps beginning from Joomla 1.5 until Joomla 3.x but I think the second link is relevant for you. K 4.0.12 should work.
