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.

Fresh install of the latest beta with no changes to settings yields some formatting issues in the forum.



It almost looks as if a stylesheet did not load, however the console shows no failed stylesheet errors.

Looks like your Joomla template is not based on Bootstrap. Try the Protostar template which is shipped with Joomla.

In backend go to Kunena Crypsis Template and in basic settings select "Yes" for " Load Bootstrap css"

This is off-topic to the converstation. I saw that my friend jhebbel has joined this site and is interested in Kunena for his discussion forum. Welcome, my friend.

A word of advice to you: K 5.0 beta is just that: it's beta software. If, as I suspect, you're investigating the viability of replacing Chronoforums as your forum software of choice, it might be advisable to use K 4.0 which is stable (and supported).

Returning to the discussion we are now having, I understand your concerns about using Kunena in your Joomla environment. Without going into specifics, yes, the Crypsis template (even with K 4.0) may not always adapt smoothly to everyone's site template.

Well hello! I have only fooled around with this for an hour or two, but already find it far superior and polished to Chrono. Looks as if Kunena will likely be our new forum. From what I read 5.0b5 is "stable" so from that I think its probibly better off than Chrono, and the leap from 5.0b5 to 5.0 final is likely smoother than 4.0 to 5.0.

Sorry, I doubt it. I won't be trying K 5.0 until about 3 or 4 months after it the first production release has emerged; the beta version is for members of the community to trial, to experiment with.

Well, it is now :laugh:

More likely, there will be a hair-breadth's difference between them.

For giggles, tried k4, same issues with the icons folder missing or path broken, with some additional funkyness happening in the menu. Guess it may be time for me to re-design my template in bootstrap, though ive never really liked bootstrap much.
