The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.2.1 [K 6.2.1] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.3.x/4.4.x/5.0.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.1.0 and issues discovered during the last development stages of K 6.1
K 2.0 support will cease on 31 August 2013 and this section of the forum will be closed and archived after that time and no further questions will be answered about this version.
Merged K 2.0 general menu issues
I noticed that the standard Create Menu and Integration is not listed in the Kunena Control Panel. Has this been removed from 2.0, or is it a glitch on my site?
I upgraded Kunena on my site today to 2.0.0. I immediately noticed that the Kunena menu was missing from my Forum, the one visible here with Tabs Index, Recent Topics, etc.
It was visible at the top of my forum previously. Is there some setting that I need to adjust to bring this menu back? Please advise ASAP. We depend greatly on this.
After the update I could see it but after some use of the forum it disappeared!

Tried it and didn't do anything.
Still no menu showing.
The new version of Kunena only displays menu if there are menu items under the current "forum instance", meaning that if you don't use menu alias pointing to Kunena menu, you need to copy all menu items from Kunena menu to your main menu or you need to create a menu of your own. Kunena menu can be disabled after that (but don't delete it as it will be created again on the next upgrade).
I have the Menu up and running now.
Can these menu items be copied as submenu items or do they need to be first level menu items? This solution is quite unwieldy since it will mess up the design and aesthetics of existing menus on my site. Is there some way of creating a default option for future upgrades to simply allow the standard kunena tab menu to appear on the top of forum page? I believe many sites will prefer this.
Another idea. What if.. the Kunena menu is simply published somewhere as in a new drop down menu? Will doing this cause the kunena tab menus now appear at the top of the forum?
Did you first try Mortti's suggestion?

For new installations of Kunena this is the standard approach. As soon as people start customising their own versions of a Kunena menu (without first reading Customised menus ) or fully appreciating Joomla's highly complicate menuing system, that's when problems arise.

That's not going to re-instate the tabbed menu; however, if someone can demonstrate how a drop down menuing system might work, in a practical way, and help develop their ideas with the team, I'm all in favour of that. The simple fact is that the current Blue Eagle template incorporates a "tabbed" menu, and that's really all that I can say.

The main problem at this stage, Howard, is how you go about getting your Kunena menu re-instated. I may be able to work through the process with you, when you and I both have a spare hour or so. On the other hand, I'm part-way through writing The Kunena Menu and, no joking, I figure I have about another 16 hours without interruptions to complete it. The trouble is, of course, I never seem to be able to make time for documentation projects like these, because I am overwhelmed dealing with questions on the forum. :whistle:
I put my entire Forum menu on a new top (drop down) menu and on my main menu link, instead of directing it to the forum itself, it directs the user to the other (drop down) menu using the external link feature.
This is certainly a clutsy solution in my opinion but it does work okay for now. I'm hoping this can be made easier in subsequent releases.
