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 about Registration was created by awkuena
I want to use Kunena forums to build my community, and I am in need of a two level registration system. One level is for the general public and one is for paid users.


My question is, can I do this with Kunena?

Hello. I am trying to figure out if I can use Kunena forums for my site.

I am in need of two levels of users, one paid and one not. Can I do this with Kunena?

Please advise.

Are you or are you not using Kunena at your website?

Kunena does not handle user registration or login. These are Joomla functions, functions that may be assisted by other Joomla extension products like JomSocial or Community Builder (to name two).

The short answer to your question is that, if your website currently allows you to register users according to whether or not they have paid money to use your website, then you can allow them access to those features that you want them to access (or not to access) as the case may be.

OK thank you very much for your help. I don't currently have any forums set up on my site but am trying to decide which forum to go with.

So from what you are saying does that mean I could have my non-paid users access some of the forums, but have other forums that only paid users can access?

Hello again. I have been in search of a way to separate access to free and paid forums in the joomla extensions, but so far have come up empty. Are you aware of an extension that would separate access to the kunena forums in this way?
