Excuse me, rain. You want to know about what, specifically? You want to know how to protect your forum from spam? :dry:

forum administration is not there..... >>> oppZzz
Go to the Joomla Backend, then to Components -> Kunena Forum -> Kunena Configuration and select Forum Administration.
plz advice :huh:

If you also notice, at the top of the article Sections, Categories, sub-Categories (Part 2) - advanced setup for special groups there is a large banner:


I have not had time to update everything on the Wiki, to change/update old K 1.5 references to the functions as they now exist in K 1.6. I would certainly appreciate any offers of help to assist in this task of bringing the documentation site up-to-date.

Where you see Forum Administration in the Wiki use Category Manager instead. In the "old days" - in Fireboard - a "forum" meant a "level-1 category" ... :sick: Talk about confusing!

The moderator review feature is controlled by a category setting.

The category settings are controlled by the Category Manager (in K 1.6) - which used to be called the Forum Administration in K 1.5. The instructions for how to do this are written in Sections, Categories, sub-Categories (Part 2) - advanced setup for special groups. These instructions were written for K 1.5 but most of the concepts still apply in K 1.6. Unfortunately I do not have enough hours in my day to answer everyone's questions and to update all the old articles written in the Wiki.

If someone would like to offer their help to improve the quality and the currency of the documentation I am sure that I speak on behalf of the whole community ... we would be very appreciative of such offers to help. It is unfortunate that, whenever I ask for people to offer to help to improve the quality and the currency of the Wiki documentation, everyone seems to have a convenient excuse for not being able to help.

If anyone can help improve the quality and the currency of the Wiki documentation (so that whenever we receive commonly-asked questions about how to use Kunena effectively we could simply point people to the information) we would love to hear from you. If you are reading this and think you might be able to help, please send me a PM and I'd be willing to teach you everything I know about how to produce Wiki articles. It's not that difficult. It just takes time. I don't have that time.

In the past I have been using other fora and have been suffering from endles registrations by spambots. Is Kuena registration process secured by reCapcha?

G'day, iapad, and welcome to Kunena.

Kunena is not responsible for user registration, login or logout. These are Joomla features; these are features that may (or may not) be assisted by additional components that you may have chosen to install and integrate with Kunena; these may be features that are incorporated into components like JomSocial or Community Builder, for example.

Thanks for the reply. This is what I found on the joomla site: extensions.joomla.org/extensions/access-...authentication/10802 (Registration Validator 2 (pro)). The developer claims it works well with Kunena. Did anybody try it out?

Dear Kunena Community,

I have embedded a Kunena forum in my www.optitrans-fp7.eu site that I support and I face the following problem:
I have enabled the CAPTCHA option and I see that it works fine for the visitors that want to leave a post.
The problem is with the registered users: I receive many fake registrations and these registered uses may leave spam posts etc. The question is: Can I enable a CAPTCHA requirement during the registration procedure of each new user? Or, what else can I do in order to have only real registrations?

Thank you in advance for your time,
ekoul

I use a free Joomla plugin called Registration Validator. You can find it on the Joomla Extensions Directory (JED). It's like a giant can of RAID for spammers. Stopped them dead.
