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.

I have the default Forum menu in my Joomla installation, using Joomla 3.9.11, and the New Topic button always leads to a 403 forbidden screen (whether I set it to a specific forum, or any forum in the menu settings). I'm attempting to create topic as a Super Admin, the menu item is restricted to member only (minimum level). Here's the message:

403 Forbidden

Hello,

I was having the same issue. Then a light went on. I was adding editors/moderators via my Joomla backend Users and setting permissions, and getting the 403 Forbidden. You may not be able to visit this page because of:...

Because I needed to create a hidden login for this particular site I created a module for it with a Login Redirect "Forum Page" and a Logout Redirect "Home Page."

When visiting the Login page there is a "Create an Account" option. By creating a new account via that link and activating it through the Kunena backend the Error 403 was no more.

So, in conclusion; if I add a user and permissions through the Joomla backend, I still needed to update the new user in the Kunena "User" backend as well in either the Joomla backend or the login page.

"Set permissions in the Kunena backend."

Hope this helps someone.

-Tom
