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.

Is it possible to import a *.mdb db from an old forum to Kunena?

If so, how?

thanks

Sounds like a custom job worth a few hundred dollars to me (just my opinion of course). I've never heard of it being done successfully.

Ok, is there are other formats you can import from - sql, txt files, etc..

I'm an IT expert, so if a conversion from *. Mdb to another format is an option, it can also be done.

Or is it only possible to create a new db in joomla / Kunena and start from nothing?

Basically that's what happens when you install Kunena. I'm not sure if I completely understand the question you're asking.

I'm also not sure how converting from a single MS Access database will address the problem. My first suggestion to you is to read (as background) I want to migrate my forum to Kunena ... :dry:

Maybe I have not been clear enough.

I have a client running on an old Snitz 2000 Forum and he wants to switch to a new forum.
I can export the database from Snitz 2000 to an access db. *.Mdb

I now i have find a forum that can import data from the old Snitz 2000 and have looked at Kunena.

I thought there was a small plugin or script that could do it.

Should there be some who have tried to migrate a *.mdb db to mysql, I will love here about it :)

If I find a solution, I write it here ....

have a nice day.
