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 Migrating from Ninjaboard to Kunena

Hi everyone,

We're trying to migrate from Ninjaboard 1.1 to Kunena 2.0. I checked out your documentation and searched your site, however I couldn't find any recent relevant information other than that it's planned in Kunena 2. Is there any recent development on a migrator for Ninjaboard to Kunena?

We have a very skilled developer on our team and we'd like to collaborate with Kunena's efforts in order to minimize our work, contribute to Kunena, and help out others with the same issue.

Kind regards,
Nick

G'day, Nick, and welcome to Kunena.

I suggest you advise your developer to look at GitHub for the Kunena project.

Here is the address: github.com/Kunena/com_kunenaimporter

Hi all,

I went through this topic as I'm trying to migrate Ninjaboard to Kunena as well. This is mandatory in order to migrate my site to Joomla 3.3

I tried the standard Kunena importer, but it did not work (as reported by another user in this forum, www.kunena.org/forum/migrate-to-kunena/1...-0-3-to-kunena-2-0-4 )

As I read this post, I expected to find some OST changes in a github forks, but I did not find nothing. The code is the same as the packed Kunena Importer.

I modified a bit the ninjaboard importer (that is indeed marked as "experimental", so I expected some issues to arise) and uploaded on my fork in github.

Just a few changes improved a lot the importer, I hope it could help people in migrate from the dead Ninjaboard, which currently hold users to old joomla versions

Regards,

Bruno

Hello,

I think you can share your code (give the link of your github repo) to help others users to migrate

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

Hi Tony,

unfortunately I wrote a guide in Italian and I think I'll not translate it in English... you can find it here:

Migration is not a simple task. Did you read carefully this topic? Did you backup your db before trying?

Migrating is mandatory as it is not possibile anymore to use a joomla 1.5 website
