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.

For every 100 users that edit a post/topic
Only 5 of them put something in this field (Reason for editing)

Suggestions:
1. Put this field as a required field
or
2. Add the option in the backend to choose if this field is required or not
or
3. Remove the field and use and automatic system (Recommended, I have an idea)
or
4. Remove this feature
or
5. Suggest another


I'm talking about this feature:

What do you mean by automatic system? I'm curious about this.

Thanks @Josh for asking.

What I mean is to use a similar technology as GitHub
Save the changes in the database, and then show old/new or removed/added if the user make a click on the link.


When users click here:






A popup windows will be opened with the details of the change:

This gave me an idea for placement. I think even better would be to have the edited statement next to the publication time as seen here:



The advantage to this is more consolidation and is next to the other time metadata. This way those curious about metadata see it in a single location.

I can maybe do that, if the Show Edited Mark Up is disabled.
