I'm trying to get modules to show up on all pages except the topic page (page that displays the actual posts). So far nothing is working as intended. The modules either show up on all the forum pages, or all the forum submenu items disappear from the split menu (very annoying).

I'm a little confused about the "Default Menu Item" field for the Entry Page menu item settings. What is this field supposed to do? It doesn't appear to function properly most of the time.

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

no, not really, but thanks.

I'm already aware of all this. My issue is that each page of Kunena behaves differently regardless of module assignments. Assigning a module to just the Entry Page (set to Index) gives different results than assigning a module to just the Index page. And what are the topic pages? They don't have a menu assignment.

Also, if I don't have an Entry Page in the menu, then no menu item is highlighted when I'm on subsequent Kunena pages (topic pages, etc), and therefore the submenu disappears entirely. But when I do have an Entry Page in the menu, then setting the "Default Menu Item" to something different works in bizarre and unexpected ways.

I really wasn't expecting such a simple thing to be so complicated. I want modules (Kunena Latest, etc) on all pages that list forums and topics, and NO modules on pages that display posts.

Here's an easier question:

Most components have different "views". ie. The list of categories is a "view", the list of topics in a category is a "view". The list of latest posts is a "view". Typically these have specific names that can be targeted by scripts.

So what's the name of the "view" that displays posts in a topic?

Nevermind, solved it. I used Metamod Pro (which I already use throughout the site), assigned it to all the Kunena pages, and added the following condition:
if (JRequest::getVar('func') != 'view') {
    return XXX; //where XXX is the module number
}

Now the module shows up on all Kunena pages except the ones that show posts in a topic.

I wish there was an easier way to do this within Kunena, but this method works fine.

The site that I manage has 3 custom_html modules which are configured to display on every page EXCEPT the Kunena forum page. However, they always display on the forum page even though they shpuld not. I have selected 'display on selected pages only' in the module configuration and deselected the Forum page. I am able to switch the modules off successfully in any other page, but not the forum page. I have cleared browser cache and template cache.

Joomla v1.7.2, using template JA Purity II.

in the module configuration and deselected the Forum page.

Only the forum page or also deselected the kunena menu? Both must be voted out.

Otherwise, go to the Module Manager > your Module and click on "Clear Selection". Afterwards is all empty. Than choose the "selected" pages again.

Joomla 2.5.2, Kunena 1.7.2, custom template.

Joomla modules assigned to all pages > show on Kunena page
Joomla modules assigned to show on selected pages only > do not show on Kunena page

This affects my topbar navigation and search for example...

Can you help me understand why this is and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

SOLVED, or at least a workaround:

Assign the Joomla modules to "all pages" and save
Next assign to "selected pages only" and deselect what you need
Now those Joomla modules show up on the forum pages

Strange behaviour?
