Once maybe was good

Posted on 24 December 2014

Limited, i decided to use kunena instead of SMF because it is Joomla component so i was hoping that it will be more functional than my old

Ease of use

Very hard migration no support i had to use phpBB like they do here. to many lost photos and posts. Hard to modify,there is no help.

I used this to: I will use till i will find an easy to migrate,if i dont find i will create old forum and new forum with other script.
If you have a big site and you earn from that, DONT use it. For small sites try it and you will see.

I istalled Kunena Forum for the first time and have not used any other forum software so far.

The software is very easy to install, configure and to use.

Excellent extension software for Joomla!

Great Software!!!

Great Software!!!

That is a Great Forum software!

that help me to build up a Forum Site and is Full functionality!!


thank Kunena !!

It seems to do all I need. Configuring is very easy and it can blend in with your own template (configuration option).

Beware during installation Kanuna creates a new menu for itself in the menu manager. This menu is for the menu above the form. This menu is created using the default language for the menu options.

If you want you can also assign it for a template position (eg position-4).

Needed a forum for my local club site and this was so easy to use! Great UI and quick to get started.

Highly recommend for any site that needs a forum! 5 stars!

Best forum ever

Thank you for this great extension , Kunena is the best of Joomla

Excellent Forum

I just re-launched my site to attach a forum. I almost went totally phpbb but instead opted on updating to j3.0x with Kunena. I ran a test site for a few weeks and saw no problems. If I ran into a bump in the road it was easily diverted by google and their *ahem* forums. Everything from SEO to modules on the homepage - it's all right there. FOR FREE!

One of the best

Been using kunena for a few weeks now and have zero issues with it. Incorporated easily with a RT template and customizing it to blend it was as easy as some CSS editing.

Has alot of features that you would find in phpbb3 but not as hard to implement with Joomla.

Would highly recommend Kunena to anyone.

My favorite forum system

Thank you for your work, Kunena team.

Excellent forum extension

Generally i dont give review to extensions, I was not happy with my Joomla 1.5 site extensions for many years. But i started a new site using Joomla 3 and I am so happy of what I accomplished. Kunena is one of the best forum I have used after Agora in my Joomla 1.5. Keep Up The Great Work!
