Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public release candidate 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 RC1 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 Everyone becomes an administrator

More
6 years 7 months ago #1 by Templecloud
A few months ago almost all the registered members of the site/forum suddenly changed to become administrators, and I can't find any way of turning them back to ordinary registered users. This is a site I set up and do occasional maintenance on when asked - but suspect that is was not updated and may have been hacked, or something corrupted. I have updated whatever I can, including Kunena to the latest version (although Joomla Extension Manager still shows the version as 3.0.3), and tried changing access levels back to default settings. However, nothing has made a difference and all but a few members still appear as adminstrators and can edit all posts.

I searched the forum, and it looks as though there is another thread on this topic, but unfortunately in German. I would really appreciate it if anyone can help with this.

Site report below...

Thanks

G'day,Templecloud, and welcome to Kunena.

I suggest that you look at the topic All users have Administrator privileges . In that topic a number of different scenarios are discussed that cover 99% of the reasons why this happens (sometimes ... in extremely rare circumstances ... when people change things on their websites). It is not normal for this to be a Kunena issue; this is more a Joomla site management issue.
