Kunena 5.2 RC3 Released (29 Nov 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the third 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.

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 RC3 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.

Solved HTML formatted emails and changing COM_KUNENA_POST_EMAIL_NOTIFICATION3

4 years 10 months ago - 4 years 10 months ago #1 by bcraigie

Someone mentioned html formatted emails were possible with Kunena 4, and I wanted to put some html in the COM_KUNENA_POST_EMAIL_NOTIFICATION3 language override in order to explain how to unsubscribe from notifications (it is a measure to appease Hotmail who have started marking my forum's email notifications as Spam because of the lack of an opt-out message in the emails). So I could make pretty buttons to unsubscribe from the topic etc inside the emails.

I can't see anywhere in the configuration to enable or disable html emails. Can anyone point it out to me please? At present, Kunena is sending plain text emails.

Also, I don't know who to report it to, but the search facility on the documentation pages at www.kunena.org/docs/en doesn't work. For example, I typed html in the search box there and pressed enter but nothing happened (instead of a message saying nothing was found).

Thank you. :-)

Thank you. The setting is already "yes" but that setting does not give the choice between html and plain text.

I have looked at the Git Hub, but I cannot find some of the folders in the path.

In GitHub, the path is :


The folder "site" does not exist. I did find the default.php file at

But it perhaps is not getting used as it says it is the template for html emails and my system is for some reason sending plain text emails.

Aha! So, I did not understand that the choice of Template (Kunena menu -> Template Manager -> set the default template) affects the emails as well as the look of the site for the users!

OK, now I set "Crypsis" as the Default template, the html emails are now coming through, and the html I added to the language override is working properly. :-)

Thank you for all the help. I hope this discovery helps others.
