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.

Question How to create a menu item to single topic

More
1 year 9 months ago #1 by toddjharrison
Hey all,

I'm attempting to create a menu item which links to a single topic to use as a vanity URL for use in-game where typing a long URL isn't viable.

There isn't an option to do this in the Kunena menu, so thought I'd just grab the URL and create the menu item using the 'URL' option under 'System Links'.

However, this results in a 404 error when attempting to use it.

TOPIC URL: trekcommander.space/forum/fleet-command/49-danpmk-s-galaxy-map

VANITY URL: trekcommander.space/map

I've got URL rewriting turned on and the .htaccess file properly set up (as in everything else is working, etc).

Does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong? Everything else is working perfectly. I suppose I could create an .htaccess redirect, but would rather accomplish this using the Joomla menu system if at all possible.

Thank you all in advance for the help!

Todd

1. First open this topic and copy the url from the browser address.
2. Use "System Links -> URL" and enter the relative address such as forum/test-category-6/20-link-test (without slash at the beginning).

Hey Rich,

Thanks for the reply, but that's exactly what I've been doing, and it results in a 404 error.

It throws a 404 irrespective of whether or not the TLD is included in the URL field.

No idea why.

Ok, I've done some more testing on this, and still can't figure it out. I have recreated the Kunena menu using the Menu Manager in the Kunena back-end, but this still hasn't resolved the issue. The vanity URL is still returning a 404 error.

I'll paste in the config report below just in case that turns something up.

Your Kunena menu items are ok. But I don't think, that's a menu problem. I see no another way as a redirection, or you keep the original url. But maybe other users have a better solution.
