Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (Today)

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 Allow access to subcategories by member request

I have a forum where there are over 4000 users.

We are using the Joomla ACL to allow user groups to access various sub-categories based on the user's region (and the user group is then set per region).

We also have another category with child-categories in it. These are for registered members, but we would like members to be able to request access to any of the sub-categories and access would be automated/manual depending if this is possible.

Does anyone know if this would be possible, please?

I'm sorry, but requests to category accesses are not possible. In principle the user would needed a request for the Joomla user group which have access to this category. You can only add manually the user to the user group who have access to this category.
So is a request only via email or pm possible, but for a request the user would have to know, whether the child category for a certain user group exist, because he can't see it without access.

Thank you for your reply. Ok, so is there no way of doing this at all, even with custom code?

It's a real custom integration which you want. It's more than some codes. For this work you need a developer.
