The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.2.1 [K 6.2.1] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.3.x/4.4.x/5.0.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.1.0 and issues discovered during the last development stages of K 6.1
Merged "This webpage has a redirect loop"
I've put out Forum menu as "Kunena Index"
I can open the forum and I can see the index page BUT....
If I want to open my Forum's category I've got wrong url!
The page isn't redirecting properly.
I try to find out the problem and I spent 2 hours on Kunena's forum (here) but I couldn't find any useful information.
1. I don't use any SEF component and I've never used. I use just Joomla 1.5 basic SEF. If I swich off Joomla SEF url setting in General config the problem with Kunena is being vanished.
2. I didn't change my htaccess file and everything had been working correctly before migration with Kunena 1.5.11.
Now... Everything works perfectly I can open my forum categories. The problem I DO NOT want to swich off basic Joomla SEF. When I open Kunena Index page I have this URL for Kunena menu:
And when basic Joomla SEF is on and when I want to open my Forum category I've got WRONG URL:
It must be like this:
When I correct my URL in browser address bar manualy then I can open my category.
What's going on?
Does everyone can expalin it?
Why do I have wrong URL?

I have noticed 'your' workaround too
When I first encountered stories about this "redirect loop" I thought to myself "How could this be possible? How could it be possible that, if people have never had a 'redirect loop' with their website before (with Joomla SEO setup properly) that by upgrading to K 1.6.1 could possibly cause these problems? This just doesn't make any sense, unless they didn't have Joomla SEO setup properly in the first place!" I had K 1.6.0 (and several development versions of K 1.6 before that) working fine on several websites; I've upgraded to K 1.6.1 and I didn't have a single problem.
So that's how I approached this issue. I approached this problem with the optimism that these problems are not Kunena-caused problems but that they are Joomla problems. And, you know what? I have been right in every case that I have been involved with. People have used the standard unmodified, unvarnished Joomla .htaccess file and they're solved their problem ... every single time.
So, I don't know why people still seem to be having problems. I only know that if you were using Joomla SEO (set up according to the guide I posted in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in the Wiki and you were having "redirect loop" problems, and you turned off Joomla SEO and you're not having problems, then you probably didn't have Joomla SEO setup correctly in the first place. And the first place you should look is at the .htaccess file.
So, how do you get a .htaccess file that works? Simple. You use the file htaccess.txt that comes with Joomla and you rename it as .htaccess (and you must make sure that you rename it correctly). You can't call it anything you like. It must be named .htaccess (that's dot-htaccess).
Believe me or don't believe me, it's your choice. People think that they have all the answers. People think "I'll just turn off Joomla SEO and I won't get the redirect loop" - and you probably won't - but you won't get all the other benefits of Joomla SEO either. That approach is not a solution. That's just a way of masking the problem.

(1) customised .htaccess
(2) issues involving third-party SEF software
(3) menu item with no itemid
(4) the wrong itemid (this would not be generated by the Kunena component)
(5) legacy menu items from K 1.5
(6) the webhosting platform that you are using
1. My htaccess the default Joomla htaccess (Hasn't been modified.)
2. I don't use any SEF software
3-4. The categories' links dont work IN the Kunena forum (I can open the Kunena's index page.)
5. I don't know what to do with that
6. Godaddy Deluxe Hosting
Why did Kunena 1.5.11 work on same platform before and why the new Kunena 1.6.1 doesn't work on same platform with same htaccess, with same Joomla version?
There is one certain way to establish the truth. Create a new test site. Start with a totally fresh installation of Joomla 1.5.22 (do not use any Godaddy-hosted scripts to create this file - create the site by uploading the Joomla installation kit from your PC). Rename the htaccess.txt file to .htaccess and enable Joomla SEO on your new site. Install Kunena and nothing else. Please let us know if you then get redirect loop errors. If you do get redirection loop errors with this test site then the problem is GoDaddy.
