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 How about a "Like" button??

It's all well and good to have the "Thank You" feature, but a lot of the time I see posts that do not warrant a formal "Thanks" - but rather an expression of agreement, mild appreciation, amusement, etc. To my mind the thumbs-up "Like" button is pretty much universally the symbol to have for this.

YES, there is the "karma" button, but it's hidden away, and reflects the user, not the post. I'd like to see a "Like" button that increments a Like count on the bottom of the post. (Example : 'Liked 12 times' appears next to the like symbol.) It doesn't need to track WHO liked it, just increment that post's like counter. Better yet: increment a like counter AND also boost the poster's karma by one point. Only one like per user, per post...

"Like" symbol could be placed just to the right of the current "Thank You" button - which (somewhat inappropriately) has a ThumbsUp symbol embedded in it. I would like to see the ThankYou button show a little trophy symbol instead - or maybe even a check mark. Then give the LIKE function over to the ThumbsUp symbol. Would prefer it just to be the bare symbol you click on, instead of a button. Extra points for an AJAX like symbol!!!

and on second thought, maybe SIMPLIFY the coding by not having the "Only one like per user, per post..." restriction.

Heck, if someone wants to hit the like button on the same post 50 times, 'Go ahead, knock yourself out'... :laugh:

Actually, I'm thinking this might not be too hard to implement myself. But Ideally I'd like to do it as a "plugin" so it doesn't get nuked with every Kunena update. Feasible? (question for developers...)

This is a good idea, but for objectivity then you need to "dislike".
