Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Hi,
I'm creating a forum for photography and I would like to enter into a section Only users of a particular group.
I created a group called "Private" and In the settings of the forum's section I selected the group "Private"
How do users request access to the group "Private"?
Thanks
Antonio

I don't have any advice about how you should run your forum so that your users can request access to your private categories. That's something you need to organise with the members of your site. Perhaps you could could create a sticky topic on one of the general categories with the subject "How to request access to the private categories" with a link to a feature on your site (a contact form or an email address, for example). That's what I would do if I was in your situation. Does this help?

Yes, thanks!
I think it's the only possibility even if I wanted to avoid manually assign users to the group :)
Thanks
