Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release 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 B1 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.

Question Display Categories To All Visitors, Regardless of Access

I found some brief discussion of this a while back, but I can't see if there was any conclusion to it. Our forum is moving to a subscription model where most of the forum categories are only for paid members. There are still some categories that are for the use of registered users who are not paying for membership.

However, it is difficult to sell the idea of membership when it isn't clear what visitors are missing.

Is there a way of making it so that all categories are shown in the index to all visitors, but if they are not of a certain access level then they won't be able to access the threads?

I'm sure this would be really useful for your own forum. The first time I visited i couldn't find anywhere to ask for support on Blue Eagle template, as it looks like that category doesn't exist. It was only when i logged in I realised the category did exist!

for security we don't support that.
What we support, is all user can read the first message, and if you are login you will see the answers. But not on access level.
