Kunena 5.1.18 Released (30 Jun 2020)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.1.18 [K 5.1.18] 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.
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 Who is online - who are the guests?
We don't allow Guest accounts on either the Joomla site or Kunena - members must be logged in to Joomla/Community Builder. The Kunena config is set so that Guests are not allowed to post nor are they allowed to reply or view existing posts.
Does this mean that anyone who just visits the frontend of the site counts as a Guest, along with bots and crawlers?
I think there might be a bug somewhere. Our Guests count went up to 322 and there were only 4 Members logged in. The Guest count increased or decreased by 3 or 4 every time I changed the page or refreshed the current page. Weird.
It's not a problem, as I just won't display the Who's online to the users.
Thank you for your time - I'm going to see if the same thing happens with the Joomla Who Is Online module.
I activated the Joomla Who Is on my test site on my localhost. I was logged in at the backend as a superuser then logged in the frontend with the same user. According to the Joomla Who Is there are 4 people logged in - I user and 3 guests. But there is only me, so the Guest figure is spurious.
When I logged out of the frontend and logged back in as an ordinary user the Guests count went up to 4. Something is evidently amiss.
I don't want to waste any more of anyone's time with this, interesting though the discussion may be. Is there a way in Kunena to just display the user names of actively logged in users and omit the 'Guests' figure completely (as appears to be the case with the Joomla module)?
I'm not going to worry about displaying the Who's Online figures because the incorrect Guest figure raises privacy concerns with our members and the explanation for them is way too technical!
I'm sorry, but you can only enable/disable this option in the configuration (tab Extra -> Show Who is Online = Yes or No)

My suggestion, if you use the Community Builder, then you have also the module CB Online. Disable in Kunena Who is Online and use the CB module. Set the advanced options to horizontal and place the module on the position kunena_bottom. You have many more options as with the Kunena or Joomla Who is Online display with this module.
