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 How to set user options when profile = CB?

I wasn't sure how to phrase the subject but in a nutshell, once we make CB profiles the active link on the Kunena menu, there is no way to have the user change the post sort, signature or default forum tab upon entry. It seems to me that these types of user settings should have been implemented in its own Kunena screen triggered off a "settings" or "user options" tab rather that bundled with profile. This separation makes sense even without 3rd party integration but with the extreme popularity of CB, I think it's mandatory.

Maybe there's already a fix for this but I couldn't find it. Help?

G'day, Bobby, and welcome to Kunena.

We had a slightly similar discussion to this yesterday - Allowing Avatar selection on Registration . The upshot is that people don't realise how to edit their Community Builder user profile.

When you see your CB user profile, it should look something like this:
