I have spent over half an hour looking into this (I started to write a response but I lost it :blush:) after looking back over what the user has posted in the past and searching these forums for possible answers.

The user has not indicated what version of Joomla he is running (or whether he has "legacy mode" still enabled) or whether he has taken our advice and removed Fireboard from his website. We also do not know what version of Kunena he is running. The only things visible on the screenshot are JA_Purity template and the fact that he is running his website from his PC.

In searching for the "deprecated" PHP messages, we have concluded that most cases arise when users run their websites with XAMPP or another, similar, server under MS Windows. This is probably the case here. I suggest that you look at the results of the search that I have done for you. But, in most of the cases that I researched, these problems mainly arise because the users were using an older version of Kunena. We haven't seen these issues since K 1.5.9. So, again, I ask "what version of Kunena are you using?"

You may find that the tip given in Deprecated PHP warnings in WAMP helpful.

I'm not sure what two menus are being discussed. Perhaps you mean two Kunena categories ? And I'm also unclear why the "jumpcode" pull-down was highlighted in the image. :unsure: Perhaps this discussion might help: Menu links to specific forum categories ??

Are you using Kunena on WAMP?

What version of Kunena are you using?

I understand what you mean by creating a menu link to your "Announcements" category as <yourDomain>/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=0&func=listcat&catid=1. I understand that! Yes, you can create a Joomla menu item to let your users see the threads of one category of Kunena (if you know its catid). :)

You can also create a menu item on your site to list all the categories of Kunena - this is the standard way to use Kunena - but I don't know how you can do what you want to do, that is, list all categories except for one. I'm doing my best to try to understand what you want and perhaps I haven't properly understood what it is that you're trying to accomplish. :dry:

I don't know how you can create a link to the "rest" of your Kunena discussion forum that excludes showing the "Announcements" category. I'm sorry but I just don't know how it can be done. :(

If, as I suspect, you are using Kunena on your own PC it would be difficult for us to actually see what you are trying to do for ourselves but, if I am wrong, can you give us the URL of your site, please?

If you are using Kunena on your own PC, I think this partly explains why you are getting those deprecated PHP warnings and I have already shown you how to deal with those.

1. Please use K 1.5.12 because it fixed the deprecated PHP matters. WAMP is not a truly reliable way to develop websites. WAMP can help but it sometimes it is misleading. I recommend that you set up a development or test site on the server you will be using in production.

2. I don't think you can create a menu link, in Joomla, that will point your users to "all categories of my Kunena forum except for one category." I assume this is what you want to do. I am sorry that I do not have an answer, but maybe someone else can help.

wamp/xamp and alike are useless for testing advance php sites they cause more issues than they are worth i agree with sozzled create a TEST section on your production server using seperate location ( yourdomain/test/ ) and a seperate database ( test.db ) under phpmyadmin, and then try and test your new setup.

correct this is NOT possible with just a menu link you would have to HACK the kunena catlist and create a version that did not show the announcements catagory, even then im not sure if it would work as you still use that catagory from another link.
