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.

× Topics must relate to a currently supported version of Kunena. If you are unsure what is the current supported version of Kunena, please go to the download page.

If you are having problems then, for your own benefit, it would save us all a lot of time if you would kindly post your configuration report when you ask for help from this forum. If you do not post your configuration report we will not ask you for it but you will probably not get your problem solved, either.

Joomla: 3.6.4 Stable
Kunena: 5.0.3
Userbase: small, all guests (moderated posting)
----

I have a tiny board with only a few categories, a certain group of people who all know each other uses it mainly to sell things or tell others about cool new restaurants and suchlike. They shouldn't need a login for that. (Posts are moderated and the system was never abused, so I want to continue keeping it simple.)

So far I was using Joomla 2.5 and Kunena 2.0.2.
People were posting as guests, putting their names into the "name" box manually, and the names appeared on the forum:


With the new board all guests would post as "Anonymous":


My questions are:
1. Is there a way to treat guest postings again like in 2.0.2, so that the names they entered appear instead of "Anonymous" for all?
2. If this is not possible, could you tell me how to remove the "Anonymous"-related text from the board?


I already found the way to remove the 'log in' option ( here , thanks guys!), but there are others I'm not sure where to find:

"by Anonymous" on the main page:


"by Anonymous" inside the category:


All the highlighted text that refers to logging in and registering on the New Topic page.
Also, if the name of the author is never shown, I'd like to remove the name field as well, if possible:

Thank you very much in advance!

The name will be shown if the user has entered a name in this field.

You can hide the other things with language overrides.

I was about to say that this was definitely not working on my board, but then waited until I could test it once more and lo and behold, it is indeed working today.


I'm slightly confused, but happy nevertheless, as this was a medium-sized problem on my end.

That got rid of the unnecessary text, thanks a lot for your help!! :lol:
