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.

Solved Internal Error when replying or quoting

Some of my members are reporting Errors when replying or quoting.
The back end Log shows this error message:

"Exception throw at line 665 in file \/home\/admin\/public_html\/libraries\/joomla\/database\/driver\/mysqli.php with message Illegal mix of collations (utf8_general_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8mb4_general_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation '='"

As far as I can see the error is not permanent, and it certainly does not affect all users.

Any help on this is much appreciated!

Probably users get this error, if they want to insert Emojis. The collation of your database do not allow Emojis. Thee error comes from the table #__kunena_messages_text. You need the collation utf8mb4_general_ci.

If you know it how you can change it then change the table collation along with column collation for the Kunena tables.
Otherwise you can do it with the Admin Tools (it needs only one click) to change it to UTF-8 multibyte.
Important! Make a database backup before you change somethings in the database.

Thank you, that was it.
The table had correct collation, but the column did not.
I changed column collation in phpmyadmin and now that users can use the mobile device keyboard's emojis.
