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.

I have just looked up MyBB, which I'd never heard of, and see that it uses MySQL. I have Googled "Convert from MyBB" and found several things. Did you do this?

It may be possible / necessary to go from MyBB to Kunena via something else if you can't get from A to B in a single jump (see e.g., the description in this forum of migrating to Kunena from Ning).

In principle, given that MyBB is open source and is based on an open source database you should be able to migrate the forum. However, it may be a significant amount of work if you have to do the migration from one set of data structures to another by hand.

I'm also interested in migrating from MyBB 1.6x to Kunena 3.x.

After doing a quite large amount of research the only "easy" way to migrate was a commercial one.

Is there any other way ? Even by migrating to Phpbb and then back into Kunena ?

Any help would be much appreciated :)
