Hi,

I use Kunena and Jomsocial on my website.

Is there a function to allow users with jomsocial profile or jomsocial points above 1 to post on the kunena forum?

This should be ACL but I can't find it anywhere. Any plugin solution or code hack?

Thanks.

Kunena is a Joomla component. Kunena uses Joomla ACLs to define who can or cannot post messages on a forum. Kunena has a limited interoperability with JomSocial. The interoperability between Kunena and JomSocial extends to such things as "earning points", utilising features of the JomSocial user profile and private messaging.

There is no connection between whether or not a user has a JomSocial user profile or has aquired a certain number of Jomsocial "points" that controls a user's ability to post on a Kunena forum. In the many years that I have been involved with Kunena, people have asked for all kinds of mechanisms to control who can post on a forum and who cannot .

I am not aware of anyone being successful in providing an alternative to Joomla ACLs to control who can or cannot post in a Kunena forum based on JomSocial "privileges".

I'm not sure I understand your question.
