Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (Yesterday)

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.

Question How to configure multiple languages (in menus)?

8 years 6 months ago - 8 years 6 months ago #1 by squiddoxy
Okay, before everyone jumps down my throat for asking a total newb question, I just want to say that I've spent the last four hours pouring over the wiki and searching this site, and if the answer is there (which I must assume it is), it's eluded me.

I have a two-language site (Joomla 2.5), have installed the languages extension, but cannot for the life of me get any language other than English to appear.

I've logged in as a test user, gone into the profile editor and changed the language setting there (the only place I could find a language setting) to Japanese, and yet the site persisted to serve English.

My forum is going to be mixed-language within each category, so all I need is that the kuenna menus are available in both Japanese and English, but I cannot find anything related to language in the forum settings.

I would be deeply grateful to anyone who could explain to me what I must be overlooking before I pull all my hair out. Even if it's just a link to documentation that clearly explains what to do (not docs.kunena.org/index.php/K_1.7_Language_Support , please, that link doesn't explain how to do anything about actual configuration), I will overjoyed.

Much obliged,

G'day, squiddoxy, and welcome to Kunena.

I don't know how to have multilanguage translations of Joomla menus so I don't really know the answer to your question. Maybe someone else, who has successfully got multilanguage menus can answer this question.

The Kunena menu is a Joomla menu. All you need to do is find a way to have multiple translations of the Joomla menu items and you've solved your problem. I have never built a multilanguage website so I don't how to have different Joomla menus in different languages that are enabled depending on what language the site visitor chooses.

Hi Sozzled!

Thanks for the quick reply/welcome.

Actually, I've realized that I can build a whole menu, translating each item myself. However, I need all the incidental buttons and such to be able to be in Japanese as well when a user is browsing the forums via the Japanese side of the site. I know I said just the menus in my first post, but what I meant by that was all the non-content portions of Kunena. Sorry I explained it badly.

Since there are translations available, I'm kind of surprised that this isn't more intuitive. Bilingual sites aren't all that rare, so there must be a way of doing it, just damned if I can figure it out... I hope someone who's done this stumbles across this post.
