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.

Question Login / Logout problem

My forum is hidden completely, until a user loggs into the frontend
via the "regular" JOOMLA login. This works just fine, and with the
login in the frontend, the KUNENA forum is also available.

My problem:
If I logg off via the log off provided by KUNENA, the regular JOOMLA
is also logged out. Perfect I thought, but: Next time I try to logg in,
I nearly always (depends how much time has passed) get a "session expired"
message.

Same thing if I logg out via the JOOMLA logout. I always get the
"session expired" if I logg back in after x minutes. If I do it right
away, no problem either way.

I assume this has something to do with the session time out in the KUNENA
back-end (see attachment), but can't find any documentation. Can I safely
set this to ZERO if I am handling the login / session length via the regular
JOOMLA login module?

Good question. I don't know the answer but it should be very easy to confirm. Set the Joomla session to a different value (say 1 minute) and see how the system responds.

I just felt lucky and set the session time out for KUNENA to ZERO. Seems to take care of the problem.

Normally it's not a very good idea to start messing around with these kinds of settings. I would suggest that you start by putting your Joomla and your Kunena configuration settings back to their default values. For the occasional time that you might need to change session time, it is better to make the Kunena session time the same length as the Joomla session time.

For Joomla: Global Settings » System » Session Settings:
Session Lifetime - 30 minutes
Session Handler - Database

For Kunena: Kunena Forum » Kunena Configuration » General » Basic Settings:
Session Lifetime = 1800 seconds
