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 Possible conflict with a Themler Template

2 years 2 months ago #1 by IanB
I have just setup a rebuilt website with newly downloaded Joomla and extensions and a template designed from scratch in Themler. However, I am getting an error when trying to access the forums setup in Kunena. The page opens, but has a blank section of a screen plus before the content. With the debug tool set on I get the following message, but cannot resolve the issue.

Notice: Undefined variable: menutype in .../html/mod_menu/default_component.php on line 54

Rendering Error in layout Widget/Menu: Call to undefined function funcTagBuilder() in .../components/com_kunena/template/crypsisb3/layouts/widget/menu/default.php on line 121
Layout was rendered in .../libraries/kunena/layout/base.php on line 166

Please can someone suggest how I can correct this apparent conflict.

Many thanks, Ian.

I am having the same problem. Template layout flying to pieces etc. errors reported as you have experienced.

I installed the free K5 jf_simone template from joomla forest ( www.joomforest.com/kunena/templates ) and declared the variable $menutype in ...html/mod_menu/default_component.php. All those errors went away. Of course the menutype error will reappear when I update joomla so I should do an override.

I have not yet figured out what Joomla Forest are doing to integrate better with Themler, or why the variable $menutype is missing from the joomla core component but I think Kunena should probably investigate.
