Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first 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 RC1 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.

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.
