Functionality

The integration with Joomla is impressive and the availability of plugins for integrating Kunena with other components is unmatched.

Ease of use

Very easy to use with an easy to understand user interface with plenty of options.

Support

Have not required support so far, but seriously doubt if I will based on earlier experiences using previous Kunena versions.

Documentation

Have not found the need to read the documentation because of earlier experiences with Kunena.

I used this to: Using Kunena to handle the content-related discussions for a large nature-oriented social site. The original plan was to use phpBB with a licensed p8pBB bridge but the Kunena integration with Joomla was too extensive to pass up. Excellent work Kunena Team!!

Functionality

Works well and has a lot of spam prevention features which is good. Has many of the features of standalone forum scripts with some extras.

Ease of use

I found it easy to set up and create forums very quickly.

Support

Impressive. I have had fast replies to technical issues especially in regards to modifications of the core script and what file to edit.

Documentation

I haven't ready any but this component is so easy to install and configure I have not needed to.

I used this to: I have used this to run forums on many websites over the years.

Best by far

Functionality

Once you get it set up it runs faultlessly

Ease of use

Great forum software,Very easy to set up

Support

I had a image size issue and the support offered to me was more than I expected,Highly recommended

Documentation

Easy to follow even for a novice like myself.

I used this to: Personal website

Functionality

Kunena is the only forum software to be native to be 100% Joomla! that is worth considering. If you want a forum to go with your jooma! site

Ease of use

Intuitive, leverages all the power that comes from Joomla.

Support

Always friendly and fast to reply on the forums, great support (if it's even needed).

Documentation

Looking forward to the new documentation layout, but there is sufficient documentation as it stands.

I used this to: I am using Kunena to manage an open source 3d metal printing project. So far we are very happy!

Functionality

Of all the forums I have used, this was the easiest to customize.

Ease of use

Overall easy to manage. Category Manager can get cluttered and difficult to sort if you have a lot of forums. Could be better.

Support

I use the forums. Most of my problems resolved there... and were configuration questions.

Documentation

Decent... but other places on web to get help, obtain how tos.

I used this to: Online forum in a school. Easy for students to use, follow threads, etc.

Once maybe was good

Functionality

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!!

Thanks!!

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!
