Kunena worked for me almost out-of-the-box, having luck with Kunena default colors matching perfectly my Joomla template..
However, end-users of the site don't know or want to learn BBCode at all. Kunena doesn't even support a mimimal WYSIWYG editor having a user-friendly GUI where people make text bold by selecting it and clicking a "B" button, having the code behind generating a [b]text[/b] code. This is a CRUCIAL aspect of usability in my opinion which undermines the value of the whole Kunena projects.
On Kunena forum people are asking for a WYSIWYG editor since longtime and my frustration is increased by the answers they get.
I have to say it is wonderful to work with, simple enough to use with ease, but complex enough to have total control over any function possible.
I have to say I am a little disappointed that the new iteration of the forum didn't bring a WYSIWYG editor as I think we are long past the days where we need our customers to battle with BBcode.
But overall a pretty solid forum for any website.
It worked straight away following installation (under Joomla 2.5) and I found it easy to configure.
When I wanted some help with the resizing of image thumbnails, I posted a query on the Kunena Forum and got a rapid answer which worked first time.
Great Job, great extension - highly recommended.
That might sound simple, but I've been through quite a few others that needed constant attention to keep running correctly. This is an excellent extension that lets you focus on the posts, not the software.
You can keep control only with third party extensions (the best is not especialy made for kunena).
Despite getting the newest version. Nevertheless, thanks to the developer.
Kunena Forum has no known security issues and all new security related issues are generally fixed within a few days from discovery. Luckily there haven't been too many security issues during the past year.
That said, spammers are whole another issue with forums and there we are currently relying on 3rd party plug-ins for Joomla.
