I use Windows 10 and work with Joomla 4.3.3 on my website.

I recently upgraded to the newest 6.1.2 Kunena forum version.

The problem is that I have configured the latest 40 posts to appear on the opening page. But I have more than 1300 posts. The previous version had at the foot of the page a list of pages 2, 3, 4, 5, etc., to access and open older posts. This time the list of links to older pages is no longer there and I cannot find the way to configure it!!!

Any advice will be highly appreciated.

Note: the current Joomla version is 4.3.4 (4.4.0 will be released next week) and the current Kunena is 6.1.4

How did you configure the last 40 posts?
To view the recent posts, in the Joomla sidemenu at Menus in Kunena Menu - Forum - Details at "Menu Item select *" Recent Topics.
In the Kunena Forum configuration you can set the number of topics and posts and the current time frame in the Frontend tab.

Thank you for your prompt answer. I configured it to have the latest 40 posts on the opening page as follows:
Using the latest version of Joomla for our WEB pages:
Components > Kunena Forum >  Configuration > Frontend tag > Topics Per Page = 40.
So, the 40 latest posts appear when opening the page where I have the Kunena Forum, but the list of following pages to read older posts disappeared (as it was in the former version).
I couldn't find in "Configuration", under any of the other tags, any function that would resolve this issue.
Can you help?
Regards,
Geramar31

You have set on the WEB page: Components > Kunena Forum > Configuration > Frontend tag > Topics per page = 40.
So, on this page 40 topics are displayed in which the last recent posts were written. Posts appear when you click on a topic.
However, it almost looks like this "front page" displays the main categories (sections)which then contain the categories in which the topics are stored.
What is displayed when you click on categories in the forum menu?

I meant 40 latest posts in each category.
I have five categories. 
I get the list of the 40 latest posts published when opening any of those categories. What I do not get is the list of pages that used to be at the bottom to allow access to older posts.

not sure if this is what you mean
Recent topic period is set correctly in Kunena Forum: Configuration at Category List in Recent Topics
and what time/month box is shown when you look at Recent Topics Time Period
And at the front you can also set the period for which the recent topics should be displayed, for example, week/month/all.

I have no problem with Recent Topics.
I have limited to 40 the most recent topics appearing on the first page of each category. Therefore, the latest 40 topics are properly listed in each category.
The problem is that older posts are not accessible because the links to pages 2, 3, 4, 5... etc., does not appear at the bottom as  in the previous version.
I have not been able to find the way to configure so that links to the following pages containing older posts appear at the bottom (or somewhere else) on the first page.

Have a look in the Kunena Dashboard at Categories. Open a category and look in the Category Settings tab at Category Channels: if "Show this category" is selected.
In the "Display settings" tab, check if "Show this category" and "Show subcategories" are set to "Up to subcategory level".
If this helps, you need to adjust all categories.

Gindi, Both "Display This Category" and "Display Sub-Categories" had already been set up to Sub-Category Level in all Categories.

I have thousands of posts in five categories. When one of the categories is open, I only see a list of the latest 40 posts (that is the limit per page).
The question is: How to configure Kunena to show a list linking to pages 2, 3, 4, 5 ... containing older posts?

Go to the configuration (Frontend tab) and test it with a low number e.g. 3 or 4 Topics Per Page. Then you can see if the pagination generally works. If this is ok, choose again the desired number of topics and go to Kunena -> Tools and recount the statistics.
