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.

Question Show only Kunena output with selected template

9 years 9 months ago #1 by fcognito

I have installed Kunena(1.5.9) on joomla (1.5.20) and everything works fine except a little "detail". The forum displays as any component in my content block, and since my content block is relatively small the forum looks like crap. Is there a way to output only what kunena generates and not the whole site like in the screenshot? I have tried adding &tmpl=filter in my kunena URL so it looks like this: option=com_kunena&ItemId=71&tmpl=filter, and it works but does not apply the kunena template it is all white with almost no graphics loaded, and this works only for this link all other links that kunena generates work the old way loading the entire page EVERY time and stuffing the forum in the small content area.

I have attached a screenshot to better clearify.

The obvious solution is to design the site to fit the forum better, but that would be in my timeframe impossible and besides that would mean that you must design your site to fit the forum and to fit your or your customers needs, and that is just not acceptable.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Aside from the fact that K 1.5.9 is not supported any more - K 1.5.9 is a very old version that was released nearly 12 months ago - this is not a Kunena problem. This is a Joomla design issue.

As you may be aware, you can assign different templates to menu items. This assignment is achieved with the Joomla Template Manager. Please look at the help.joomla.org website for information about how to use Template Manager.

For your own sake, we recommend that you upgrade to K 1.6.2.
