Question Stuck between installation and access "404 Not Found"

12 years 3 months ago - 12 years 3 months ago #1 by Winuser
I'm concurrently learning Joomla! 2.5, so I confess that some or all of this problem may not concern Kunena itself; still, I would be grateful for some simple guidance.

After successfully installing the latest Kunena on a fresh install of J2.5, I am struggling to access the component's front-end. When I created a menu to the forum's entry page, I get a "404 Not Found" error.

Could someone please clarify the steps immediately AFTER installation that are required to properly activate and access the forum component? Is there a master ON/OFF switch that I am overlooking?

I have the read the installation wiki, which does not cover setup and activation. I have also searched "404 Not Found" at this site and could find only one result that did not apply to my case.

Here is the requisite configuration info:

404 page not found errors are usually caused by not properly setting up your Joomla menu or having SEO improperly configured.

(1) See Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in the Wiki; and
(2) Read the FAQs menu tab above in relation to How do I restore my Kunena menu? and make sure that you publish your menu item that takes you to the forum.
