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 Using Gantry Social Icons for login and logout

3 years 6 months ago #1 by shoulders

How has Kunena forum manages to use Gantry Social Icons to display Login and then logout once you are logged in?

I know how to use the social icons module but there are not options to set permissions, have you customised it?

This is not quite the anser but will explain how you can do a similiar sort of effect for login menus.

I created a 'User' menu and an accompanying module called 'User Menu'. The module is publish publically (Public).

Within the menu I created the following items (with their Access group)
1) Login (Guest)
2) Logout (Registered)
3) My Account (Registered)

This will then chang depending on whether you are logged in or not.
NB: you need to have a recent version of Jomla and have your Guest group configured properely (Joomla Admin-->System-->Global Configuration-->Users-->Guest User Group = Guest)

You could use the Public Access group
