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.

Solved How Do I Lock Category Topics So No New Topics Can Be Posted?

I would like to Lock the Kunena forum so that no Users can post new topics. How do I do this in the CMS?

I have attached a screenshot of our forum's CMS Categories page. It looks as if all of the Categories are locked (they all have Xs under the Locked column). But on the frontend of the forum on our website there aren't any Lock icons next to the categories.



Thank you.

A x means No and a hook is Yes. So is your setting Locked = No.

Rich,

Thank you for the response. That's what we thought. But for some reason we can't set the Lock on the rest of the categories we want to Lock.

And when we try to set the Lock on these other categories, when the CMS screen refreshes, the only categories showing are the ones that we already Locked, and we can't get back to the page that shows all of the categories, both Locked and Unlocked. The only way we can retrieve the list of all the categories (Locked and Unlocked) is to logout and log back in.

We must be missing something.

Here is a screenshot of the group of categories that we can't lock:


Thanks again.

Log in again in the backend and choose in the filter the option "Off", then you have only listed all unlocked categories. There is no batch function, you must lock the categories one by one with click at the x.

Okay Rich,

We have locked the categories one by one. And that did the trick.

Thanks so much.
