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 delete a top level category / section?

1 year 9 months ago #1 by pintobuck
I made a top level category, and then it would not show anywhere in the front or back end.

I could not see it to move it or to delete it. Finally, I deleted it out of the database. Is there a better way to do this?

Then, I recreated the same category as a subcategory to the Main Forum. But, it would not create until I chose a different alias than the first time.

Thank you.

This might help. (solved) Phantom Kunena Category blocks Create & Save New Category

Regarding the front end, Top Level Categories are also called Sections. They should show on the front end as a section title in the template, but you cannot post to them. (For example: Main Forum) You have to create subcategories, and then you can post to the subcategories.
