Hello guys,

Which version of Kunena you have installed? This was a old bug and is solved long time ago.

No, the bug is solved. Please empty the cache. If does not help you must go to the database and check the table *_kunena_categories. Here you can delete it.
Warning: If you remove the wrong category, then you can only restore it with a database backup.

Hm... Deleted the cache, still can not create the category..

I think when i delete a category, kunena says it is deleted and it is shown nowhere, but i can not create new category with this name, because it is still in the database and users have to deinstall the category manual with phpmyadmin in sql database then it is a BUG?

UPDATE: Funny new thing, the category is even NOT stored in the database. But i can not create the category...

UPDATE2: It really IS a bug. I found the problem. If you delete a category the alias name is still in the database in "_kunena_aliases". Users have to delete it here in the database, then it is possible to create the category again.

hm.. can't confirm it. I've tried it several times now. The alias will also deleted in the database. Maybe it was a double entry.

Don't know.

It does not work on any website. We have latest joomla and kunena versions. Even when we change alias name of a category we can not create new one with the changed alias name.

We always have to delete the alias in the database...
