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 Missing module positions in Kunena 5x: kunena_topic_#, kunena_msg_#

3 years 8 months ago #1 by nemmar

I am using Kunena 5.0.5 with Blue Eagle 5 on a Joomla 3.6.5 site. This question is related to my other post but I was told to create a new topic for this: www.kunena.org/forum/general-user-contri...like?start=40#182893

I had Joomla banners that displayed on my old Kunena forum (prior to version 5) in between my Kunena Sections, Categories, and Topics. The banners don't display with K5 and Blue Eagle 5. Here is a screenshot of the old module positions for those banners. Can you tell me what the new module positions are or add this as an upgrade feature request in K5 with Blue Eagle 5?

I also tested a suggested solution given to me in my other post but that didn't work either: I tested out the kunena_msg_row_3 and it doesn't work on my forum. Is there a different syntax to use for module positions in between the topics and messages/posts?

I checked the Kunena module positions help doc but that didn't solve the problem, instead it confirmed the problem by displaying that those prior version Kunena module positions no longer exist in K5: www.kunena.org/docs/en/faq/module-positions

I would like to make a feature request for a future upgrade of K5 or Blue Eagle 5 template: Can you consider adding the module positions similar to the prior Kunena version of:

Thank you.

The module positions are the same as before. Only instead kunena_msg_# use now kunena_msg_row_#

I've tested it with blue eagle5 and it works.

kunena_msg_# is a single position in a topic
kunena_msg_row_# the position at all pages in a topic
kunena_topic_# beginning with number 2
kunena_section_top_# only odd numbers such as 1, 3, 5 etc..
kunena_section_# only even numbers such as 2, 4, 6 etc..

You must also empty the cache, otherwise the modules are not displayed.
