Kunena 5.2.4 and Blue eagle 1.6.4 released (04 Apr 2021)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.2.4 [K 5.2.4] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.2 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 5.2.4
Blue Eagle 1.6.x requires Kunena 5.2.x to work with, this template isn't designed to works with Bootstrap 3 and Bootstrap 4.
Instant messaging (1on1 and chatrooms)
And, since I'm being cheek, Kunena working like those commeting softwares (Disqus and the like) where new messages are loaded live would be neat.
Looking forward to version 4!
A messaging system should act like whatsapp dose in the way the information is presented because pc based posting is moving fast to mostly mobile, and if any of you tried to send a PM from uddeim from a phone is not the most fun thing to do.
I know Tapatalk is a good alternative to web posting but this means to rely on a third party application that a user needs to add to its device, not very streamline.
In my opinion all design efforts and UX decisions must be mobile first, having a chat functionality is a plus, although it doesn't need to be Kunena native but fully integrated.
sharing = caring
This is heading into the territory of Real Time Communications (RTC) it is something I am specializing an interest on, but is hard to implement in shared web host environments.
Currently we see a lot of discussions on topics 'move' to twitter, as this is for a lot of people easier then posting on the forum (and probably for the same reason as why facebook is so popular > low entry app and notifications)
With Kunena / forum we want to retain the lessons learned but find ourselves lost in twitter discussions that are hard to 'catch' (at least now we have the tweet implementation > that should help
