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 Can I make different parts of my site use specific categories of the forum?

I'm running a online Tv network website. VBCtv and was wondering if it is possible to have a category in it's own wrapper page.

What i want to do is say have a category for 'blah blah show' and be able to link just that category to that show's page where you can't access the rest of the forum. I want to be able to put it in a wrapper where the show's menu is there but if you leave that page to go to the rest of the forum it takes you out of the shows menu and into the regular forum.

Is this possible?

Hi,

no, actually it is not possible. Maybe with Kunena 1.7 and Joomla 1.6 stable something like that will be possible.

Actually, I think this is entirely possible (and I've seen the concept proven - but I forget the website - using Kunena 1.6). Basically, you create separate Kunena menus that are used in each part of your site.

Let's say you have a site menu item that is all about the 'blah blah show'. Under that menu item, you have another menu item that points to a specific Kunena section or categories using the new K 1.6 menu system. Don't ask me how it's done, I only know that I've seen it done and it was done really well. :)

Sorry sozzled,
if you know this, I would like to know also how we can create and show category "where you can't access the rest of the forum", so try to remember and show me becouse it's something new for me and can be useful for other users too.

Thank you

It took me a while to locate the example that I was thinking about. See Menu links to specfic forum categories . This is a really good demonstration of how to customise the K 1.6 menus.

I'd say it is mostly possible with Kunena 1.6 as you can see on the Playground of kunena.com

There is still a way to reach the rest of the forums, but you can seperate them very well.

Hope this helps.

We love stars on the Joomla Extension Directory . :-)

Separation is currently possible for individual categories (larger forums need some extra logic because of some limitations in Joomla 1.5 and missing bits in Kunena 1.6).
