Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

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.

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 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. 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.

Idea [K.5.0.RC5] Enhance: Short Meta Description in Home Page

Tested with: PHP 7.0.8 + J.3.6 + K.5.0.RC5 + Crypsis + Protostar

If you have this:
Backend -> Menus -> kunena menu -> Kunena Forum » Home Page -> Details -> Default Menu Item = Forum

You will get this meta description:
Index - sitename

The problem
The meta description is too short and there is no way to change this value without affecting child objects.
The Home page is the most important page of a website

Option 1. Custom meta description and change it at anytime.
Option 2. Use Joomla global

I think option 2 is the best.


So on the index/search/custom/announcement page, I will use description and keywords from the Joomla options

That means option 2 will generate at least 4 duplicated meta descriptions, right?

yes indeed,


1) remove the meta,keywords
2) Use Joomla meta,keywords (duplicated)
3) Use Joomla meta,keywords + adding view name on the end, so no duplicated text

I think the problem can be solved by just switching the landing page from "Forum" to "Index"
Both have the same content and "Index" can be perfectly customized without causing problems to child objects.

if possible, Please make your own tests and confirm it

I have set the "index" as my home default page.
I think my problem has been solved with change (I don't know if there are other negative consequences with this change, I hope not)

Forget about the last solution.
There was a big mess with all URLs after this change.
