Another UNA update with just bugfixes. So UNA 9.0.0 release is very close now.

Please follow these instructions on how to upgrade your UNA site:

List of fixes:

Reposted Mark Purser's post.

The UNA-verse has been rapidly expanding in recent months - with many new modules added, this created multiple issues that the team have devoted maximum time to ironing out.

RC11 has been released and contains lots of fixes of issues that presented in RC10. RC10 was feature rich, with a lot of those new features still filtering in, the team have devoted maximum time to ensuring that all the ensuing bugs were sorted out. 

With RC11 smoothing out the operations of UNA - the advent of UNA 10 seems ever closer.

With that said - whilst there were not any major new modules added, there were a few new tweaks that are worth a look; 

Analytics Module - Export Reports via CSV - simple but vital, export your analytics data out of UNA into a shareable format, ready to be utilised wherever it needs to be.

Spaces - New Browsing Block with Top Parent Spaces only. - This helps to simplify the top level of taxonomy, so you can present a page with just the Top Level of Spaces only.

Payments -  Enable/disable payment providers via Studio. A tweak to the Payments Module - we can now switch on and off which payment providers are displayed in our payment gateway.

Channels: add ACL action 'create channel auto' #1619 - This feature gives admin power to designate via Permissions Builder what levels of users can create new channels based on hashtags. 

With UNA RC11 - the angels are in the details - the full list of fixes and enhancements is on Github -

 The attention now moves towards improving documentation and training - and of course preparation for the UNA10 version release.

New version update is ready. 

No bells or whistles, just bugfixes.

If you have auto-update enabled then your site should be updated within 24 hours.

If you are on manual updates, then

- Go to 'Studio > Dashboard' then click/tap 'Upgrade'

- After your system is updated (usually within a minute) go to 'Studio > Apps Market > Updates' and apply all available updates. 

- After all updates are applied, try to reload the page to see if there are more than 1 update for the same module and apply it again until there are no more updates available on this page.

There is one issue in 9.0.0-RC10:

- Notifications module settings aren't updating automatically, so you need to disable and then enable the module in the Studio > Notifications after all modules has been updated to the latest versions:

It should fix the problem. However all module settings, menus, pages will be reset.

There are several potential problems in this release which are easily fixable

1) site may remain in maintenance mode after upgrade when SMPT Mailer module is enabled, in this case check logs/upgrade.log for any error if everything is ok, then just delete .bx_maintenance file from the root UNA folder

2) if you have Froala editor module installed, then you need to install new FontAwesome Pro module to have toolbar correctly displayed in the editor

3) Froala editor may display message about the license error, then just clear your browser's cache.

I've just extended tutorial about creating icon for the module by adding specifications and format of SVG icon for the module:

Reposted Andrew Boon's post.

UNA platform matures and we get more people interested in launching their own UNA-powered custom community sites. In the last few months, particularly, UNA Team is in a situation that we need to narrow the scope of potential clients and also lay out guidelines for what kind of projects we are eager to work with and what kind of projects we would rather not touch. 

It is important to understand that UNA is primarily a public-service product, making positive impact a top priority. Revenue generation is important, but not critical for UNA platform success, so we are fortunate to be able to say "no" to projects that don't align with our mission. 


Prohibited Usage

Websites using UNA platform for the activities outlined below will be pro-actively disconnected from version updates and any support services. Below activities are considered prohibited usage and will result in immediate account suspension or cancellation without a refund and the possibility that UNA Inc will impose fees; and/or pursue civil remedies without providing advance notice.

  • Spam and Unsolicited Bulk Email: UNA Inc has a zero tolerance policy on spam. 
  • Access to Other Computers or Networks without Authorisation: Any act which interferes with the services of another user or network. Any act relating to the circumvention of security measures.
  • Activities Viewed as Illegal or Harmful: Fraudulent or otherwise illegal activities, including engaging in phishing or otherwise obtaining financial or other personal information in a misleading manner or for fraudulent or misleading purposes; promoting and supporting abusive, violent, harassing, malicious or harmful content
  • Any activity or content that is harmful to minors in any way
  • Communities promoting hateful or discriminatory activity based on race, color, sex, religion, nationality, ethnic or national origin, marital status, disability, sexual orientation or age.


Unsupported Usage

Below activities are not considered prohibited usage, but may be offered limited technical support. Automatic updates for such websites can still be accessed. Direct technical support and general community support may be limited to questions not including direct links, media or content references posted publicly at UNA.IO or via UNA Inc. direct email support. In most cases UNA technical specialists reserve the right to refuse visiting or otherwise interacting with the websites involved in such activities. 

  • Pornography and Adult-content: Depictions or images of sexual acts or implied sexual activity; graphic photos or videos. This does NOT automatically include networks for heterosexual, gay, lesbian or transgender individuals; breast feeding networks or educational networks promoting safe sex, assuming that pornography and graphic media is not present.
  • Potentially Illegal Group Activity: Networks promoting illegal or harmful gatherings; denial-of-service attacks; service disruption activities; radical political or religious actions.


Endorsed Usage

We strongly believe that building generic social networks (a.k.a. "Facebook Clones") using UNA platform is not beneficial for end-users. Network operators are encouraged to focus on building niche communities focused on beneficial causes. Uniting people around interests, goals or activity that is inspiring, positive and helpful invariably leads to overall project success. Below activities will be supported with priority.

  • Educational and inspirational content generation and sharing
  • NGOs, NPOs and other groups contributing towards common welfare.
  • Philanthropic, humanitarian, charitable networks.
  • Open-source and Free software initiatives. 



This is still a draft, which will be updated before official publication. Comments and suggestions are most welcome.
