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.

Administrators, by rights, have access to the backend. You use Joomla to assign a user as an administrator.

What are you trying to do? You wrote that the global moderator was unable to moderate other users' posts. How did you go about assigning the user as a global moderator?

Yes, it's possible a Kunena Administrator without backend login.
www.kunena.org/docs/en/faq/admins-only-for-kunena (If you set Step 5 - Administrator Login = Not Allowed)
But it makes no sense. A Admin has in the frontend not much more rights such as a Global moderator.

All that you say is true, rich. I think the questioner has simply changed the user's forum rank to "moderator" but has not properly assigned the role using the Kunena User Manager. Perhaps I am mistaken.

You should only select this option, if you have some experience with Joomla.
