Kunena 5.1.9 Released (Today)

The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.1.9 [K 5.1.9] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.1 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 5.1. This is a maintenance release.

× 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.

We are setting up Kunena ahead of a migration. When I log in with my site administrator account, I receive the following error:
Rendering Error in layout Widget/Module: Call to a member function cachedCompile() on null. Please enable debug mode for more information.

With debugging turned on, as suggested, the full error message is:
Rendering Error in layout Widget/Module: Call to a member function cachedCompile() on null in /var/www/vhosts/transalpclub.nl/kunena.transalpclub.nl/plugins/system/helix3/core/helix3.php on line 774
Layout was rendered in /var/www/vhosts/transalpclub.nl/kunena.transalpclub.nl/components/com_kunena/template/crypsisb3/layouts/page/default.php on line 25

helix3.php line 774 (-->):
	public static function addLess($less, $css, $attribs = array())
	{
		$template  = JFactory::getApplication()->getTemplate();
		$themepath = JPATH_THEMES . '/' . $template;
 
		if (self::getParam('lessoption') and self::getParam('lessoption') == '1')
		{
			if (file_exists($themepath . "/less/" . $less . ".less"))
			{
-->				self::getInstance()->autoCompileLess($themepath . "/less/" . $less . ".less", $themepath . "/css/" . $css . ".css");
			}
		}
		self::getInstance()->addCSS($css . '.css', $attribs);
 
		return self::getInstance();
	}

default.php line 25 (-->):
	if ($config->get('displayModule'))
	{
-->		echo $this->subLayout('Widget/Module')->set('position', 'kunena_top');
	}

The if statement is inside a block starting with:
<div id="kunena" class="layout <?php echo $this->options->get('pageclass_sfx'); ?>">
	<?php

The SCLogin module is published in the kunena_top position. Helix3 is the framework used by the JD NewYork template and assigned to all forum pages. On the main site we use a different template powered by a different framework and there the issue is not present.

I haven't got a clue where to start looking. With a normal, non-privileged, account the module works fine.

Any help would be appreciated.

The Kunena tabs and also the forum working correctly? You have two wrong configured Kunena menu items. Please go to the Kunena Menu and repair this items.

872 Index kunenamenu view=home&defaultmenu=871
This must be the Kunena menu type Category List

871 Forum kunenamenu view=home&defaultmenu=871 forum
This menu item Forum (root) is linked with himself. If you want the index as default landing page, then choose in this menu item "Default Menu Item * = Index"
docs.kunena.org/en/faq/kunena-menu

Have you enabled in Helix the Page Optimize? That can also leads to mistakes.

As far as I know, the forum works correctly. What happens when I log in as super user, I get the described error message and I lose some of the styling.





I also lose the logout button that is provided by the module published in kunena_top position.

I fixed the menu.



Regarding Helix Page Optimization, I don't know what that is and where it lives ;) I just went through the template and style settings and couldn't find any page optimization option. I guess, the answer is no.

Should be in the template setting. Options such as "Optimize CSS and Optimize JS" or "Compress CSS and Compress JS"

When the Helix has a own cache, then empty and disable this cache. Empty also the Joomla cache.

Try it also with the Joomla default template Protostar. It will unsightly the layout (Crypsis b3 is not written for Bootstrap 2 Templates), but you can see, if the errors still exists.

Both are turned off. Only option in advanced that that is turned on, is "Compile LESS to CSS". That's needed for our modifications to work.

Helix3 does not appear to have a cache of its own. I cleared the Joomla cache. But it didn't change anything.

Try it also with the Joomla default template Protostar. It will unsightly the layout (Crypsis b3 is not written for Bootstrap 2 Templates), but you can see, if the errors still exists.

The error is gone when using Protostar. I'm jumping ahead here. Would that mean a bug in the Helix3 code? I already asked the developers of the login module. They said it's unlikely that it is an issue with their module.

A bit off-topic: All notification mails I have received so far are classified as junk by GMail. Pretty annoying when you try to keep an eye on how things are developing. Not sure exactly what GMail leads to that conclusion. But adding 108.163.220.51 (delivery.mailspamprotection.com) to the kunena.org SPF record may help.

The developer of this module is right. The module works correctly on this position, it has nothing to do with this error. But you are not the only one user, which has problems with Helix and Kunena. Whereby the mistakes had one thing in common, mostly the template has compiled a wrong address to any file.

Yes we know this problem. Kunena send many subscription mails all days therefore some provider see this as spam. Also gmx send no mails from us.

I don't understand what you mean by that.

Is there a file/directory somewhere, where I need to take look and clean up?

I don't understand what you mean by that.

I think, a example is your error message:

Rendering Error in layout Widget/Module: Call to a member function cachedCompile() on null in /var/www/vhosts/transalpclub.nl/kunena.transalpclub.nl/plugins/system/helix3/core/helix3.php on line 774
Layout was rendered in /var/www/vhosts/transalpclub.nl/kunena.transalpclub.nl/components/com_kunena/template/crypsisb3/layouts/page/default.php on line 25


That's a wrong address. Add only the red marked address (with www. at the beginning) in your browser address field and press Enter. Then you will see it. I think, the author of your Helix template could better help.

Now you lost me completely. :unsure:

What you marked in red is part of the directory structure in the backend. I'm not entirely sure if the transalpclub.nl is in the path. But I will ask the guy who provides the hosting.

Anyhow, if I paste kunena.transalpclub.nl/components/com_kunena/template/crypsisb3/layouts/page/default.php in my browser, I get a blank page. No errors. For kunena.transalpclub.nl/plugins/system/helix3/core/helix3.php I get a page saying resticted aceess.

I will ask the makers of the template as well. I believe, they in turn have full access to the support forum of the Helix3 developers, JoomShaper. I'll report back.
