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 Private category viewing ??

1 year 1 month ago - 1 year 1 month ago #1 by clippy3
Is it possible to have a category (public viewing) that has a forum category that the public can see (just the category header/decription) But have the actual posts only viewable to a special group (I.e. authors)?

I want to create a forum category/sub category that works like an advert for joining - such as "active members only" but when a non member clicks they get told they cannot see so they should join up before being able to view any of the post..

I can achieve this by making the category only viewable by registered members (and the posts only viewable to a "special group") but this hides the category title and description as well from public view - I need the public to see the category title and the sub text "ala - join if you want to see what's here" to prompt them to join because there something they cannot see.

If you create a public category, than you can use the option "Hide Replies For Guests" in the Configuration -> Security. Guests see only the first message of a topic. When enabled, users must be login before reading the answers.
