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 Phpbb: Can I keep my old topic IDs?

6 years 1 month ago #1 by Kotsolis
I have migrated from phpbb (latest version) to Kunena.

My developer used Kunena 1.7.2 and Kunena importer 1.7. Then we upgraded to latest Kunena version (3.0.6).

About the short URLs we used JoomSef:

What I want is that only the old phpbb3 topic IDs should be the same because if they are then the URL will open correctly. For exampleQ

This shows: GameWorld.gr - Watch Dogs (old phpbb3 URL)

And this is the URL on the test server

If the topic ID was correct (11573 as it used to be) then even if I was putting " www.gameworld.gr/forum/85/11573 " the URL would open correctly. What matters is the topic ID as every forum ignores the subforum IDs !

My developer said that topic URLs can't be the same "Due to the table structure of both Forums. Phpbb forum has around 71 table structure and Kunena has only 22 table structure.

Phpbb used two table one for topics and one 1 for post but Kunena used only one table for the both. So when we migrate the data in Kunena from Phpbb then its automatically creates its id and it can’t be same if data is importing in one table from two table."

So is he right or not? Can I transfer all the old topic IDs and keep the same IDs in Kunena?

Thank you.
