Question Can't add new categories - HELP!

10 years 4 months ago #1 by MJDigitalArt
I set up this forum about a month ago, and when I did, I was able to add new categories and sub categories.. now all of the sudden, I cannot.. the only thing I can think of is that I installed a Joomla update.. could this have broken my Kunena install? Every single other aspect of the install seems to work.. any ideas?

J! 1.6.2 was a really bad release. If you must use Joomla 1.6 then please use J! 1.6.3.

Please read K 1.6 Technical Requirements . You will see that K 1.6.3 has problems with Joomla 1.6.

Off-topic but, for the record, these are my personal opinions as an ordinary user of Joomla. Even though Joomla does not intend to proceed to a "J! 1.6.4" version (preferring, instead, to concentrate on J 1.7) J 1.6.3 has many bugs that will continue to make things difficult for site owners. In most of discussions that I have been involved with (offline from this forum) experienced web developers are "under-awed" by J! 1.6 and have not upgraded their sites to that version. The biggest drawback with J! 1.6 at the moment is the lack of a reliable migration for old J! 1.5 extensions. J! 1.7 is expect to greatly improve in that area.

I get the impression that, even though J! 1.6 was 2½ years in the making, that it went through several alpha and beta releases and 12 "release candidate" versions before it went public on 10 Jan this year, J! 1.6 will be forgotten as a momentary blip on the webosphere. These are only my personal opinions, of course, and do not reflect the views of the Kunena project. I still believe that Joomla is a wonderful way to build websites but the results from J! 1.6 have not met the enthusiastic expectations that the Joomla community had way back when J! 1.6 was first being talked about 2½ years ago.

I think that there was a small bug when adding categories to Kunena 1.6.3 (maybe it was internal release). There was some kind of workaround for it -- select parent category before adding new, saving the new category and editing it..

For the last week or so I have been working with Matias Aguirre to import Kunena into Joomla 1.6.3. I must agree with sozzled -- while Joomla 1.6.3 seems to be pretty stable by itself, it too many undocumented API changes and/or bugs, all of which can break extensions. Sometimes these issues are obvious, but often they just cause application to do something else than intended. This is what has delayed Kunena 1.6.4 so much -- we wanted it to be stable in Joomla 1.6, but we have kept on finding bug after bug -- and sometimes finding the cause has been very hard.

Another reason for the delay is that we do not have reliable way to upgrade Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 1.6. JUpgrade still needs some work to support Kunena. Importing Kunena itself mostly works, but the importation of large forum can fail on timeout and there are still some bugs in Joomla import, which cause issues in Kunena (broken Kunena menu because of wrong values in the menu module etc).
