Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first 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 RC1 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.

× This is for users to help other users, to discuss topics that relate to migrating from other web-based forums and converting the data into a form that will operate with Kunena.

It is important to note that the Kunena team does not have a standard, recommended or supported protocol for these ideas and that posting questions in this category may not receive advice from team members.

Solved phpBB3 > Kunena v2.x migrator / importer?

8 years 1 month ago #1 by stuartoh

OK, so maybe I need new reading glasses, but I can't find any info or links to a forum migration / importer tool for phpBB3 > Kunena v2.x. Is this tool now defunct? I remember it existed for Kunena v1.7.x

If this tool still exists, are there any download links anywhere?

The tool is not defunct but you are correct that there currently no Kunena Forum Importer component designed for K 2.x.

People can still download Kunena Forum Importer 1.7.1 but this only works to convert other forums to K 1.7. It's a simple matter after that to upgrade to K 2.0.

The current workload of the development team has been overwhelming. When the development team members find time (or if someone is prepared to sponsor this work) I am sure they will get around to writing a forum importer tool for K 2.x (or K 3.x as the case may eventually be).

Thanks, that's perfect - I still have a 1.7.x release, so could do it that way with that importer :)
