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.

Hello,

I searched and seen some old topics. I been playing around for many months Joomla and man with all the plugins etc You can build a really nice site not just a forum like how I have with IPB. anyway
My forums are about 7 years old and it would be sad if I had to start from scratch. I love how it completely integrated with Joomla and I would love to move forward with this type of board. So to my question is there anything out there that I can convert forum to your forum at atleast bring over the users details
Thanks for your time

P.S I am running IP.Board 3.1.3

There is currently a search for Agora und phpBB3 migration testers. I guess that you need to do the migration manually cause for so seldom and old components there is often no way of automatic migration.

FYI - AFter closing out some remaining issues with out modules and plugins and releasing them as 1.6.1 we have lined up Agora and phpBB migration testers. These will have priority.

Question: Are there convertes from IP.Board to something like phpBB? If so, you could go that route once we have finalized the phpBB converter.

We love stars on the Joomla Extension Directory . :-)

Hi again,

I have spoke to owner of forum migration it can be done but I do not have the cash to proceed or I would of done it .

My next question is if you are familure of what need to be move lets say posts and users is all I really care about . I can only image this is a very complex way because of how each table is linked to another part of another table etc..

Unless there is a convert that I can migrate to i.e move to phpbb then move to Kunena.
any suggestions thanks for your time

I searched through this forum looking for IPB in the title only - that's why it's always a good idea to choose a good topic subject - and I found the following results: www.kunena.org/forum/advsearch?q=IPB&tit...te=all&childforums=1

I found out about forum-migrations.com from this thread and after doing a bit of research I hired them to migrate my Vbulletin forum to Kunena. Our forums have approx 34,000 post and many images and I was not comfortable in doing the migration myself. Javier at forum-migrations set up a demo site in advance at no charge to show me just how our forums would look in Kunena and was then very flexible with my schedule when doing the actual migration. He even even followed up with an additional task that was not in the original quote.
Overall I would have to say that I am very pleased with the service. For my peace of mind it was definitely worth the price.
