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.

Hey Guys

I am running Kunena 1.6.1 on Joomla 1.5.22

I am looking for a possibility to add a REQUIRED FIELD for the registration !

Standard now is that a new user has to fill out NAME, USERNAME, PASSWORD, Email (+Confirmation)
I like to add the "CITY" also ?

Is that possible in any way ?

Kunena does not perform user registration. You can use other Joomla extensions to require key fields of information at user registration time.

So than I have another question, please

I have nothing else installed than KUNENA on my JOOMLA Package.

So you say these required fields come from JOOMLA and I can change them somewhere ???

Do you know where to to that ? :(

I am saying that Kunena does not handle user registration. Kunena has never handled user registration. User registration is performed by Joomla. You can use other Joomla extensions to do other things with user registration. Kunena uses whatever you've installed that handles user registration. Kunena doesn't do anything "extra" as far as site registration is concerned. Site registration is outside Kunena.

The Joomla Extensions Directory has categories of Joomla extensions that deal with user registration. Some of these extensions give you the means to "require" additional information during registration. It's your choice, or not, to use those things.

If you only want to use Joomla for site registration, I have seen that it's possible to change the process. Changing that process is not part of the Kunena project. You need to ask those kinds of questions at the Joomla forum ( forum.joomla.org )
