Kunena 5.2.6 released and Blue eagle 1.6.6 released (25 Jul 2021)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.2.6 [K 5.2.6] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.2 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 5.2.6
Please use other categories for questions about problems that you may be having with your website.
Merged User Groups, User Group Privileges, ACLs
I do that at my website.
'Registered' Members get access to some basic forums and 'Members' get access to all the forums.
You can do that by setting the permissions in the category manager.
If you want your board to be restricted completely - try setting the boards (published state) to special.
If you set it up that way, you would probably have to assign users and whatnot though.
Oh and in Joomla (if that is what you are using for the main site) you can set each account to be approved by the admin by hand after it is validated.
You can accomplish this with Community Builder and GroupJive 2.0+ You have to be a paid subscriber to get access to GroupJive, but it has been WELL worth it for my community website. You have full control over who can create group, and the forums for each group can be made private. It works fantastically on my site.
I did this with an ACL component called JUGA, but I have a problem: JUGA can only restrict access, it can't hide the categories/topic names.
Is it possible to hide the categories and their subsequent topics entirely? Like phpBB does?
I don't think so. As far as I know (and I may be wrong) there has been no interest shown by the authors of JUGA towards Kunena. I do not know, for that matter, if JUGA is intended to be updated for J! 1.6 either. This is something that you might like to ask the people who developed JUGA.
So far, I have looked through all the Kunena help forums and FAQ pages but I can't find what I am looking for.
Is it possible? Any help?
As you can see, I have merged your question with this long topic, we have been asked this question many times before. Unfortunately there is a basic limitation in Kunena 1.x that means that your question cannot be easily solved at this precise moment. With the current architecture of K 1.6, it is not yet possible to achieve different kinds of access to forum categories based on different user rights.
That's the bad news. The good news is that action-based ACL-driven user rights for forum categories undeer development as part of the major Kunena 2.0 project. This project needs your support and, if this requirement is critical to your needs, we may be able to help one another. Members of the community can support the project in many ways: financially, software development, active participation in unit and system testing, documentation, sponsorship, etc.
