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.

× 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 PHPBB to Kunena in Joomla 2.5

7 years 8 months ago #1 by Evangeline93

I am new to Kunena and I wanted to migrate from PHPBB to Kunena. I found a tutorial on how to do it in Joomla 1.5, but I am using Joomla 2.5 and I imagine that PHPBB and Kunena have changed quite a bit since then, as well.

Does anyone have any suggestions or experiences that could help me in this endeavor? :sick:

Thank you!

G'day, Jennifer, and welcome to Kunena.

Let me start by saying that converting from phpBB to Kunena is not my specialty. If I had to find information on how to go about such a conversion, I would start by looking at the recent discussions that we've had on this subject >>> here <<< with the expectation that there is something in those topics that would assist.
