C'mon Kunena, step up your game. A WYSIWYG should have been integrated a long time ago. Until this is standard, Kunena gets only an average vote from me. Kunena is old and should be much more advanced that what it is. It still has a general antiquated feel, for some reason. Not nearly as advanced as some of the stand alones, like SMF.
I have to add too that the support, mainly from three or four different staff members, is rude, abrupt and condescending. Support gets zero starts, while the software itself is average.
in my opinion it stays just an average product because of an unacceptable weakness: lack of WYISWIG editor for rich text.
I can't find any excuse why in 2012 a forum user, who could be grandma, should deal with tags (bbcode or whatever) to get bold text or pictures in their posts.
I am using Joomla 1.7 and beez5 template and it worked perfectly first time.
well worth a download and does everything i need. happy chappy and without spending a bean. who can complain really?
Kunena has had a configuration option called "CAPTCHA Challenge for Users" for a few months, and we have implemented that in our site. The feature has been tested to be effective, but it doesn't stop all spam. Kunena 2.0 will also have "Moderate Guests / New Users", which allows moderators to check if the posts are spam before they get published. We are also planning other methods to prevent spam.
I generally avoid writing reviews. But this is the extension which made me to do this. I'm not a new kunena user. I have used some old versions of kunena and not much attracted on the extension. So, I looked for a better one this time similar to PHPBB. Unfortunately i was reverted to the same extension since i cannot get the better. But while using the new version of this extension,I found lot of improvements that the developer has made. My client was really happy with this forum style...
Really an excellent work!
The first major benefit is the fact that Kunena is a Joomla extension. It's not a separate product which needs a bridge to keep the user profiles in sync. That fact alone was a God-send... keeping phpBB3 synchronized with Joomla was a constant chore.
Beyond that, Kunena comes with everything we need in a forum. When something is missing (like Private Message functionality), we can just add it with another extension (like uddeIM). It's super easy to upgrade, integrates perfectly with all the other extensions we use, and I've had nothing but excellent service from their support team.
In fact, I was so happy with Kunena, I ended up joining the team!
If you're looking to add a forum to your Joomla web site, avoid the headaches and pitfalls of a separate bridged forum software. Try out Kunena first and save yourself all kinds of time and effort.
Thanks to the skinner.css file it is easy-peasy to embed it in an exsiting Jommla!-Template. Styling is quite easy and it works like a charm.
I am using this site for a social project and it is grat that this component is open source.
Thanks to all the developers.
Good, good job!
