Solved How-To Edit: "Only community members can participate in this forum. You must register or log in to contribute." Message

There are 2 reasons as to why you would want to "edit" the text "Only community members can participate in this forum. You must register or log in to contribute."

Scenario 1: I would like my forum to be viewable by all people who visit my site.

Solution: In this case, you want to simply make sure the Menu Item you set for users to get to this page is set to "Public". This is pretty simple. And is referenced in this old archive message > www.kunena.org/forum/159-K-17-Common-Que...log-in-to-contribute

Scenario 2: You actually want to change the text of this message to something else (which was in my case). The file where you need to edit is located in: administrator/components/com_kunena/language/en-GB/en-GB.com_kunena.libraries.ini (line 386 ish)

Personally it took me a day to find it... ugh. All because I realized Dreamweaver was not indexing .ini files... and I thought I can manually check the .ini files one by one... It appeared that Kunena 2.x have changed the locations of the language files quite a bit so of course, manually looking for it was crazy.

So... I realized I should Google for a way for Dreamweaver to search within .ini files. And this is the post that I found > www.conticreative.com/The-Conticreative-...eaver-ini-files.html
