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.

Replied by Dougw133 on topic Category Avatar?
Under the index of categories can I place a custom avatar for each category? If so how? I cannot find anything on it.

I've been trying to get this to work also with no luck. I can upload the files to the directory and enter the code, but the icons just don't show up. The original folder disappears for the cateogry whose icon I want to change, but the icon doesn't show up!

I'm sorry but I don't understand "the original folder disappears for the category whose icon I want to change". How does this disappear? What folder are you trying to upload your icons into?

Please visit my forum - givemeapps.com/index.php?option=com_kune...entrypage&Itemid=804

If you look at the category App Talk, the icon has disapeared. This is because I uploaded the three icons (off, on, not logged) and affixed the following code to have the new icon show up:

#Kunena tr#kcat77 td.kcol-category-icon span.kreadforum {
background: url("../../../media/kunena/category_images/mAndroid_9_read.png") no-repeat scroll left center transparent;
}
#Kunena tr#kcat77 td.kcol-category-icon span.kunreadforum {
background: url("../../../media/kunena/category_images/mAndroid_9_unread.png") no-repeat scroll left center transparent;
}
#Kunena tr#kcat77 td.kcol-category-icon span.knotloginforum {
background: url("../../../media/kunena/category_images/mAndroid_9_notlogged.png") no-repeat scroll left center transparent;
}



It's a no go. In other words, its pointing to the icons, and the original icon disappears (good), but the new one doesn't show. I don't know what gives.

Here's the forum configuration

I looked at your site (thank you for providing us with the details) and, of course, now I understand why your CSS changes won't work.

If you look at the category App Talk ...

I could not find a category called "App Talk" but I found a category called "Android" and I focused my attention on that category.

For a dozen good reasons, people should not directly modify minified files (e.g. kunena.forum-min.css) and it's a lot easier - from a debugging perspective - to make changes to your Joomla site template instead. Aside from this small issue that meant that I spent 15 minutes sifting through a dozen CSS files before I found the cause of the problem, here's the solution.

You are trying to modify the category icon for catID = 9. Your CSS rule basically says "this is the image to use for catID = 77". You don't have a category whose ID is 77. But you've also made an error in the relative folder specification in that rule. This is what you should have done instead:
#Kunena tr#kcat9 td.kcol-category-icon span.kreadforum {
    background: url("/media/kunena/category_images/mAndroid_9_read.png") no-repeat scroll left center transparent;
}
#Kunena tr#kcat9 td.kcol-category-icon span.kunreadforum {
    background: url("/media/kunena/category_images/mAndroid_9_unread.png") no-repeat scroll left center transparent;
}
#Kunena tr#kcat9 td.kcol-category-icon span.knotloginforum {
    background: url("/media/kunena/category_images/mAndroid_9_notlogged.png") no-repeat scroll left center transparent;
}
Trust me, it works.

While I have your attention, your configuration report shows that you are running legacy mode and that you are using K 1.6.4.

Please read the important advice that we have consistently given to all people who continue to rely on unsupported Joomla features like legacy mode . Please update to K 1.6.5 (see K 1.6 Upgrade Guide ).

You should also be aware that third-party templates, such as the Euro-BRed one you are using, that were developed for earlier versions of Kunena may not always remain fully-compatible with future versions of Kunena.

So sorry Sozzled and thank you for looking! I changed my files after frustration of no one being able to help here which is why you saw the error in the CSS code. At the time there was a Cat whose ID was 77. I got rid of that cat. The ANDROID category you saw yes was Cat 9, and even with the code changed to 9, it doesn't work.

The problem most likely lies with using Joomla Legacy mode. See, I didn't program the site. My developers did. Perhaps I am going to have to inquire about upgrading to Kunena 1.6.5 (let's hope they don't charage me) and ask them why they decided to use legacy mode. In any case, with the code modification, it still isn't working

WAIT/.....

I CHANGED THE FOLDER SPECIFICATION AND IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Thank you SO SO SO SO SO SO MUCH! You don't know how much this has been bugging me over the last week! I can finally customize my forum and not get charged for it! If you need some advertising, send me a banner or something! This will really help with the attractiveness of my forum!

THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!

I am trying to change the sub-category icons from the "outside".In other words, using the usual instructions on changing category icons works, but in the case of sub-forums, you can't see those icons unless you go into the category. The aforementioned icons are 32x32.

Please look at the attached JPG to see what I am trying to change.

Please help
