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.

Question Location in Kunena profile and Joomla location

Hi,

I make it mandatory for my users to enter a city (and country) when they register in Joomla. To my surprise this city from parameter profile.city in table user_profiles does not show up in Kunena profile in field location.

Also, if a user edits his Kunena profile, it does not change Joomla profile parameter and vice versa. It seems a link is forgotten here.

Is there a way to make this work as one location?

Happy coding,
Goldie

Joomla does not have parameters on user_profiles

So you have installed a plugin or added fields.

Hi 810,

neither nor. Joomla has a table user_profiles with fields

user_id
profile_key
profile_value
ordering

And it stores city and country that the user has entered during registration in parameters there:

profile_key = profile.city, profile_value ="New York"
profile_key = profile.country, profile_value = "USA"
profile.key = profile.aboutme, profile_value = "I love blogs"


There are many other parameters like address, dob, website ...

Happy coding,
Merling

PS: Have you seen the important Mail I sent you yesterday?
