I just installed Kunena 1.6 on my joomla1.6 site. The installation went fine. I put kunena index page in my menu but whenever I go to it I get a: "The requested URL /joomla-working/farm-forum was not found on this server." I have the kunena site marked on line.... Any ideas??? :(

Hello,

Do you create correctly the menu item for kunena in your menu ?

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

I think I did - I know it acts like the menu is not correct. It is in my main menu, I created a menu item called "forum" and pointed it to the kunena index file (which is now there after the install).


Another weird thing - I also now seem to have a component called "comrokmodule" that when I click on it, I also get a 404 error message.

Problem is resolved. The menu soon went bonkers and none of the menu items returned a page. Fortunately I had Akeeba backup installed and it worked perfectly and I put the site back to normal. Then I re-installed Kunena and now the page & program works. I was reading the top line in this forum and did I install the wrong module for my Joomla1.6 site? The site is not really running yet, I hope to eventually replace my existing site.

Thanks again :)

What you read printed at the top of this page is a cautionary note to all people who are trying to use K 1.6 and J! 1.6. Until the Joomla Extension Directory gives a "green light" to classifying K 1.6 as a "native J! 1.6 extension" people need to understand that K 1.6.3 may not be a completely reliable way of running web-based forums on J! 1.6 websites. On the other hand, there are few other alternatives available at this time, either.

More detailed advice is contained in K 1.6 Technical Requirements .

No, you did not use the "wrong" software; there is currently no other publicly-available version of Kunena that works better than K 1.6.3. K 1.6.4 will work better but only if people are running J! 1.6.3. People should also know that J! 1.6.3 is not without problems, either, and these will probably not be fixed until the release of J! 1.7 (expected in June/July this year). Until such time as Joomla 1.6 is fixed, Kunena can only be made to work properly by continued development, workarounds, and accepting that some things cannot ever work until things are fixed on the Joomla side.

On the other hand, J! 1.5.23 still offers a reliable, stable platform but without some of the added features of J! 1.6.3. Is it worth your while to use J! 1.6.3 instead of J! 1.5.23? Everyone has their own opinion and people should be guided by their individual needs combined with an understanding of the risks that may be involved.
