Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (Yesterday)

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.

Solved K5.0 Forum Template Styling

Unless I missed it somewhere, I just installed K5.0 in my test Joomla site, first with the Protostar template, then the Beez, and then one of my own. Using both of the Crypsis templates in Kunena, I find that the forum layout and style looks almost like it has no CSS.

Am I to assume this is how it is now, and using/upgrading to K5.0 is going to require a complete customized template built to match my own theme?

Kunena 5 should work at least with Protostar and Crypsis (not Crypsisb3). If not there must be something wrong with your installation. Try to set "Load Bootstrap css" to "Yes" in the Crypsis basic settings.

It helped some, thanks...but wow, looks like I will need to create a lot of custom styles to bring it up to par with my theme's styling. I'm not even sure if Crypsis can even be called a template.

I certainly hope Kunena warns everyone that there is really no styling for the forums if they upgrade to 5.x. This will certainly cause a lot of upset people.

I don't agree with you. I like the Crypsis template better than Blue Eagle and use it with Kunena 4 on my live website. I didn't receive a single complaint from our forum members when I switched over from Blue Eagle to Crypsis. I have a test site running with Kunena 5.0 RC3 and Crypsis and apart from a few style adjustments I had to appliy it is running fine.

Perhaps you could post a link to your test site so we can see what is wrong with it.

I think where the issue will come is from templates that are based on the Blue Eagle template. But I've attached a file of the Crypsis vs my current template from my live site.
