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 5.1.8 - User @mentions dropdown only search small portion of user base

Testing Kunena for a potential phpBB migration, and one of the most requested features is @mentions to notify users when they are tagged in a post.

This appears to be supported now, but when typing in the editor @<username>, the search box that appears only seems to be searching on a very small portion of the userbase. (Oddly, only users whose username begins with a number of non-alpha character).

I don't see any configuration information for this feature, am I missing something here?

The user get currently no notify if you add a mention in a message. It seems it is only a auto completion and the small portion of user base is hard coded in the edit.js

Is there a item in settings somewhere to DISABLE this?? In its current state, this is very misleading to the users ( who might be used to it in other forums, and think it actually works here too...)

There is no setting for this. You can comment out this code with /* at the beginning and at the end with */

Hi, I am looking for this feature. I checked the edit.js in both crypsis and blue eagle 5 which I am using. It seems to be disabled but the code is not commented out. How do I enable this in Blue Eagle 5?

Also it would be great if this was integrated into the quoting...
