Hello.

Suddenly my site's forum has become accessible to registered users only:
www.panosfx.com/forum/index

I didn't make any changes to Kunena's settings.
"Security/Registered Users Only" is set to No.

Thank you in advance.
Panos

EDIT:
I'm using Kunena 4.0.11, PHP 5.5.38, Joomla! 3.6.2, MySQL 5.6.30

I think there is a broken plugin.

I see cURL failed. Error: Operation timed out after 10000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received

API returned error:

Looks like a 3rth party plugin isn't working anymore.

Hi 810, and thanks for the reply. The cURL error occurs sporadically and rather rarely. I just found another cause for the issue:

Two days ago, the developer of a popular component added a new users group ('Guest', under 'Public') and made it the default. This caused all Kunena topics to disappear from the eyes of non-logged in users. I just switched the default users group to 'Public' and the forum is back.

So, the question that arises is this:
Is there a way to set the default access to Kunena to a group other than 'Public' or 'Registered'?

Thank you.

yes, but then you need to change all categories item, on the permission list.

So yes, you can change it back, then edit all Categories
