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.

Question Rank changed to "Editor-in-chief" [SOLVED]

I used the User Manager of Joomla (not Kunena) and changed a user's rank to "Administrator", "Editor" and "Publisher". Afterwards he appears like this



This rank means "Editor-in-chief". How did that happen? I think have assigned only Super Users to appear as admins. Can you tell me where is the menu which defines which ranks in User Manager are shown into something else in Kunena Forum?

Thanks.

I have no understanding of what you describe. Perhaps it's a translation error? It really would help if, when you post in the "reporting defects category", you would include your configuration report .

My guess is that you are using a broken Kunena template. If you don't want to change your Kunena template then, I guess, you are just going to have to live with this defect.

Forum ranks are assigned in three ways:

1) Custom ranks (you can allocate a rank to a member of your forum, provided they are not moderators or administrators)
2) Ranks based on the number of messages a person posts
3) Moderators and super users (these ranks are pre-defined within Kunena)

On the other hand, after we have seen your configuration report and it shows that you are using the latest version of Kunena with the latest version of the Kunena translation package and Kunena template, you may be right. This may be a defect introduced in K 4.0.6.

Both, Super Users and Administrators get the rank Administrator. You can change the rank for this user in the backend "Kunena -> Users -> click on User Name -> Forum Settings".
