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.

Hi there,

After upgrade to Kunena 5.1.0yesterday, I am facing Anonymous advertisement posts.
Although my forum is set to "Public writing = No" still there are replies with Anonymous user and no profile link.

I have not changed any setting after my update to Kunena 5.1.0 and I have never faced this issue with any previous version of the Forum software. The strange point is, that this users POST requests are resulting in a 303 Error, but are still shown in the forum.

GET /index.php?option=com_kunena&view=topic&catid=13&id=77839&Itemid=2592&limitstart=10 HTTP/1.1
POST /index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=2592 HTTP/1.1

I hope that there is a quick fix to this issue, as otherwise my forum may be flooded with this kind of posts:


Today I have filtered the IP but it will just be a temporary help.

Thanks in advance and have a great weekend

Michael
