Kunena 5.2 RC3 Released (29 Nov 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the third 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 RC3 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 Member/User ID's [digits-real-name] (Random and Non-Subsequential), Changeable?

2 months 1 week ago #1 by TruthSword
Good morning Kunena Team,

Member/User ID's [digits-real-name] (Random and Non-Subsequential), Changeable?

For instance:


However; brandon-kastning (Myself) was ID #1 (The Admin Account) -- Why 352 for ID?

I would like to open my site to the public with ID's non-random and sub-sequential if possible.

Best Regards,

Brandon Kastning

Kunena has no own user management, it takes the users together with IDs from Joomla.
Every user ID is unique and will never be changed. If you see the ID 352 is it your Joomla user ID.
If you install Joomla new, the admin get a randomly user ID. All other users get the next ID numbers ongoing (in your case 353, 354 and so on).
If you install Joomla, you will never become the ID 1 unless you install an old Joomla 1.0 or 1.5.
