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.

The forum I am building here: wethepeopleonline.com/we-the-people-asse...e-people-assemblages has some strange issues that I cannot seem to figure out how to resolve.

#1) When I first started working on this; before I manually created 3000+ categories. I created "Washington (WA) State" category. The sub-categories (Counties of our State of WA) were all flipped upside down. No matter what I did for "re-arrange" and moving "Adams County" to the very top. It doesn't change on the front-end, regardless of clearing cache. I never resolved this. I finished my manual data entry on all the other State Categories before working my way down to Washington (A-Z). Once I finished data entering all the states and counties; I found out that it did not fix this.

#2) When I went to disable, delete or modify any part of the Category "Washington (WA) State" or it's sub-categories of Counties. No matter what I do "clicking the down arrow first for sorting before re-ordering the categories" works... just doesn't work. This only happens on this category as I was able to move beyond "Washington (WA) State" category to West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming without problems.

The error message I receive is in blue in Joomla Admin / Kunena Category Section of the Component.

The message says the following regardless of the action taken:

Please select category from the list before taking this action!

Any pointers would be helpful! Thank you!

Best Regards,

Step 1: click on the symbol (image 1)
Step 2: move the categories (image 2)

You can either move complete sections along with all categories, or only move categories within sections.

The second possibility is the patch option. You can move more than one category at the same time (see image below):
