Kunena 5.2 RC3 Released (Today)

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.

While experimenting with the goal of achieving a clean re-install while restoring category and message content, I've found 2 bugs when uninstalling Kunena using the Uninstall option in Tools.

1. The uninstaller removes the plugins/kunena directory and all its contents - even other plugins not installed with Kunena. This leaves orphaned database entries for 3rd party extensions

2. The uninstaller removes all tables prefixed #__kunena - even if they aren't part of Kunena. For example, the table #__kunenadiscuss is removed, although that plugin remains installed in plugins/content

This is very lazy behavior. If the folder isn't empty, don't delete it and if the database table doesn't belong to you, leave it alone.

Thankfully, this was done on my dev server and the live site has full backups.

Table update queries aren't exactly updating the tables to match the new structure. I compared a fresh install to a site upgraded from 4.0.10 > 4.0.11 > 4.0.12 > 5.0.2 > 5.0.3 and there are quite a few differences. There are quite a few TINYTEXT, TEXT, MEDIUMTEXT changes and a few VARCHAR length changes that are not updated to reflect the freshly installed table structure.

If you have time, can you pls help me, i don't get replies on my post.
For some reason, after clean install, i can't install kunena.
Its stuck on installation, after the error it is in my component area but if i click on the forum its finishing the installation and get the same error.

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `#__kunena_configuration` (
`id` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
`params` text NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (id) ) DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8;

Tried different versions of Joomla and different version of kunena. nothing works.

I hope i hear from u.

Hi chris looks like there is a database issue on your database.

try with admin tools, to change the collation to utf-8 multbyte. Then click repair tables
