Kunena 5.2 RC3 Released (29 Nov 2020)

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.

Question Kunena 5.1 - Exporting from 1 install to Import to another (Categories) - How?

Kunena 5.1 - Exporting from 1 install to Import to another (Categories) - How?

I have two identical Joomla installations (latest) with Kunena (latest) and I created 1 main forum + 3 sub forums.

I then exported the tables using phpmyadmin for _kunena_categories to .sql

I then edited the SQL query to exclude the creation of the table (without doing so; it will create an error) since it already exists.

Then once you do this and save. I switch over to the identical second installation which has zero categories in Kunena.

I then go back to phpmyadmin and switch the database to the second installation; then I import the modified .sql that I exported from the first installation.

This creates successfully the categories! YAY! This is what I wanted... however... when I click into "view one" as a user on the front-end... I run into problems.

I receive the following error:

404 Kunena view '' not found

... If I go to create a sub-category within the category that I cannot browse that was imported; it becomes visible and viewable to the front-end user. (Not the parent Category that was imported; but the newly created one that it is it's child).

What else needs to be modified in the exported .sql that will allow a seamless import without preventing the front end from viewing the imported categories?

Thank you!

Best Regards,

Brandon Kastning
