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.

Solved How to display forum in second template (site using two Joomla templates)

8 years 5 months ago #1 by jimmyjay
My site uses two Joomla 1.7 templates, so lets just say Beez and atomic (keeping it simple).

The frontpage uses the atomic template, but individual pages use the beez template.

The default template is atomic.

I am trying to display the entry page on the beez template, and have selected this template from the "forum" menu option, so the menu item that links to the entry page.

Problem is that the entry page is displayed on the atomic template. Other menu items will display the pages in the beez template.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Although, as you probably know, J! 1.7 is no longer supported and people should upgrade to J! 2.5, the principles are still the same.

The answer to your question is Unable to make the forum appear in a separate joomla template - it always uses the default template! . Assign your Kunena menu items to a different Joomla template; it's as simple as that. ;)

Sorry about the 1.7 post, didnt know it was not supported (new to Kunena).

Thanks a lot for your quick reply (it worked). I had mistakenly assignment the menu, not the menu item.
