Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (Yesterday)

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 Some users seeing all posts centered

4 years 11 months ago #1 by katenz
I have a small number of users who are seeing all messages centered, rather than left-justified. I've looked at all settings and can't work out what could be causing this. Has anyone had this before? Any ideas where to find a solution?

The short answer to this question is that, no, I have not seen this kind of thing before.

The centering, or "peculiar" placement of items on your forum could be attributed to a number of factors. The most likely cause is your Joomla template, how it interacts with different web-browsers and on different display platforms.

For example, the forum may render differently if you are viewing it on a desktop PC monitor, a tablet PC or some other mobile device. If you know where your forum traffic is coming from (do you use any website analytic tools, for instance?), which browsers people are using and whether they are usind desktop or mobile devices, this may explain the "some users" aspect of your question.

It's somewhat difficult for me to help you, Kate, when I know nothing about your website. I'm only guessing (I could be wrong) but I hope some of this information helps.

Thanks, I'm asking my users for more information. You can see the messages on this topic

Most users are fine but a few have this issue. So far one is using Google Chrome and one Safari. I've checked the forum on most browsers but can't reproduce the issue...

I tested with Mozilla Firefox (using different screen sizes) and Internet Explorer and I cannot see any centering of posts in that topic.

As I said (and it's just my opinion) it would be useful to run some website analytics to obtain more information about what platforms your users have when they interact with your website.

It's also possible that your users have an old CSS stylesheet stored in their browser cache. You could suggest to your users to clear their browser cache and/or force a total page refresh. It's possible that this may be the cause of their peculiar problems (and why you and I do not see them).
