Hello,

I am doing a multi-pronged update of my site, which is currently running J1.5, JomSocial 2.4.2, and K1.7.1. I am upgrading all components, and taking Kunena right to 2.0.x. On my new site, I imported my K1.7.1 tables, then installed K2.0.4. It correctly recognized an upgrade is in order, and proceeded without errors. However now, my categories have an access that is either "Nobody" or "Only Nobody".

Previously, my 1.7.1 categories were all "Public"...I did not use JomSocial group control for the forum. Also, non-registered users were allow to view, but not post.

When I look at a migrated category, the Access Control Type is "User Groups" (correct) but the primary user group is not selected (wrong). I could go and change each category one-by-one, but I have 196 of them! Is there some upgrade step I missed?

ETA: I just tried migrating to 1.7.2 using the same procedure and the category access is also "Nobody". So this is a Joomla 2.5 thing?

Hello,

I'am remember of this king of issue in the past but i thought that this was fixed and Kunena 2.0 hasn't batch function to change permissions on multiples categories in same time.
So, you can run a query in database to change the permissions on all your cateogries in same time.

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

So then, this is a known issue and the only solution is to do SQL update to change the category columns? Can someone from Kunena weigh in on this? I am ok with doing SQL, but given how slick the usual Kunena upgrade process is I find it a little hard to believe there is such a glaring bug.

Rather than SQL..Is there any other alternative method for it? I wonder there are many relational queries found to be fired favorably..

Except to change the right category by category there are no others way than make a query to change all the right in same time.
