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.

Question How to auto-add text to forum posts in a certain section

7 years 7 months ago #1 by soutysjo

Couldn't find that anywhere on the forum. Is it possible to create a forum section, in which every post will have the same text added to it automatically?

I want to create a sensitive forum section and make sure that each user's post there will contain short T&C's.

G'day, soutysjo, and welcome to Kunena.

I'm not sure what exists to achieve a solution to the problem as you have described it. It may be possible (if you have the skill or are prepared to pay a developer to write a plugin or to customise the forum template for you) to add certain text such as a link to your site's terms of use.

In the case of this website here, you will observe that each page on the site displays a link to the site's terms of use (at the foot of each page) and maybe that would be the simplest, almost zero-cost, solution in your case.

Another option is to add the [linked] text as part of the section/category description or to incorporate the link into your signature when you reply to topics posted in that section (or categories within it).
