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.

Question Migrating from phpBB3: view counts lost (that is, they are all zero)

When migrating from PHPBB3, the view counts for each topic were somehow lost. All the topics reverted to 0 views. Is there a quick way to restore the view information (I still have the PHPBB3 forum in place to use as the source)? If not, is there a way to remove the view count column from Kunena 3?

Thanks again for your help!

OK, judging by the lack of replies, restoring the view count data is either very difficult or nobody knows how. :)

So, I guess I'll opt for plan B and hide the view count column. Anybody have information on how to do that?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I have made enquiries and will get back to you with an answer. However, why is the number of views important, popular topics and discussions will get views anyway. Just tell your users you moved over to a new forum component and the view counts got reset?

Kunena stores the number of views in the table xxxx_kunena_topics (indexes, hits) where xxxx is whatever your Joomla database prefix is set to.

If you used migration to Kunena 1.6 and went from there to Kunena 3.0, the old version used to store hits in the first message of each topic as there was no topic table.

Hits might be a bit hard to add if you used our older migration script as it changes all topic ids to match the first post in every topic.
