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.

I am reading lots of stuff which is nothing but confusing so thought I would post here.

I have a customer who went from Kunena to SMF but now wants to convert back to Kunena from SMF.
The searching is filled with yes and no replies meaning some say it can't be done and others say it can or they have done it.

Does anyone know for sure if this can or cannot be done?

When you use the kunena migrator, it can't be done right away on J3.
You need to do it on j15. then export the data to the J3 database. If the userid are the same, then it should work. If the joomla user id has changed. then you need to do migration to J3.3 and replacing the users table.

Or you can let it do it for you,

I can do it for you right away on J3.3 (my own migrator)

Thank you, I appreciate the help. I have decided to use an old backup copy but I will have to post a new question because something odd is happening.

Thanks again.

Just read the posts in here and follow the examples. I can't help you because it's been too long and have moved on but read and you'll get it.
