Hi,
just started to test K6.
Congratulations on this new release: I can see that a lot of work has gone in it!

What I noticed is that in the backend you load a theme.min.css
This file should (IMO) only be used to make minor tweaks to the Joomla template css and bootstrap css
Currently it overrides almost everything which leads to a lot of 'conflicts'

e.g. you override the font used but that will also change the used font on the joomla menus / sidebar (you can see the font changing when switching from and to Kunena.
You override the color of bg-warning (from yellow to orange), but that will also override any warnings / alerts from the Joomla framework.
You override the drowdowns, but that breaks the joomla breakdown (see attached image).

So my advice is:
  1. stick to core bootstrap
  2. stick to joomla css
  3. only make changes in theme.min.css if there is no other way of achieving it, e.g. instead of changing bg-warning in css you can also use bg-orange (or define you own bg- class. Same for changing margin classes to get more padding: do not change mb-3 but use e.g. mb-5 as changing mb-3 will have unexpected impact on other things as well.
Hope this helps :)

fyi, there are a lot of warnings in the back-end (about svg) and all my categories are not displaying although it says I have 5 categories... need to find some more time to get it to actually work so I can test further. (this was an issue with a broken upgrade, just redid it and now the categories are present.)
If there is something you want me to look at specifically please let me know. Kunena is currently holding all my customers back from upgrading their sites to J4, so I want to help where possible with getting this out to production :)

Hello,

Thanks for your testing, we use the file theme.min.css for specific theming for Kunena in backend because the boostrap was too basic. You can look if you want to remove teh useless things in this file
