Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public release candidate 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 RC1 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.

this is the problem, there may be code to correct this but can not find anything within control panel
as you can see from the image, the forum is to far down, did not have this issue with another forum, but prefer the layout of this one but would like to move it up and replace the banner just on the forum page

this site is not live yet, I am running local

Disable the banner on the forum page. It's done with Joomla's Module Manager.

nope, that doesnt solve it, the problem may be the skin template, thought there may be a way to force the forum up via css file

The problem is the banner. You don't want the banner on the same page as your Kunena forum. Is that right?

The solution is to disable the banner. This is not a Kunena problem. This is a Joomla issue. The problem is your site template. You need to fix your site template. Your website is not on the internet and therefore there isn't a lot we can do to help you. Please read Support for PC-hosted websites (e.g. WAMP, XAMPP) .

Yes, there is a way to "force the forum up" but I don't think that changing the CSS is going to help in your case. The answer lies in knowing how you make that banner appear. How do you make the banner appear?

the banner is written in the template skin, therefor if I remove it I will effectively be removing it from all pages from the site, I have tried

i had agora forum originally and did not have this problem with this skin

however I prefered the look of this forum, apart from this problem. If there is a way to force the forum up within kunena that will correct this problem,then I would appreciate any pointers to solving the problem, I know I will have to edit a file,thats not a problem,however i am well out of date with coding of any kind, the last time I wrote anything related to code was batch files (errorlevel this and errorlevel that etc) but I am confident enough to add, edit, change code if someone can just give me some idea as to what to edit and what code would need to be changed or added, i dont particularly want to go back to agora, would rather solve this problem if possible

As sozzled said, you don't need to go back to agora, and you don't need to mess with the kunena code. Fix the real problem. If you are willing to add, edit, or change code, do it in the template that is causing the problem. Otherwise you are creating a problem to solve a problem!! Go talk to the silly people who wrote a template that doesn't allow you to remove that HUGE banner display. Adding or hiding display blocks is fundamental to the way Joomla works, so they should not be restricting you in that way.
