One of the most important things, that many people fail to understand, is that, unlike free-standing web-based discussion forums, there is no "forum registration" procedure that users are required to do. Kunena is a Joomla component. In other words, in order for your users to use the Joomla components that you have installed on your Joomla website, your users have to go through whatever Joomla user registration procedure that you have setup for your users; populating the Kunena user profiles is performed automatically after that.

So, while Kunena has its own database table that holds extra information about the forum users, there is no such thing as a Kunena "user registration procedure" per se that is independent of the site registration procedure. There is no such thing as a Kunena "registration page" page - there is only the "registration page" page created by the Joomla component that handles site registration.

It is very important to realise the distinction.

On the one hand, free-standing forums (e.g. phpBB, SMF, punBB, etc.) all have their own forum registration procedures that operate independently of other components that people may have installed on their websites (and that's one of the reasons that makes them more complicated if people want to use them with Joomla). On the other hand Kunena does not have a separate forum registration procedure. I do not know how many times we have tried to get this message across but people still think that there's some kind of "forum registration" when there isn't one. People still confuse forum registration with site registration and Kunena is not responsible for site registration nor with issues arising from site registration.

So that's why your topic has been merged here (together with other questions asked on this forum over time) on the subject of "forum registration" problems.


Cheers and good luck. :)

Perhaps msg #2 of this topic may make this point clearer.

We know nothing about the "module" you are using or whether this "module" works in Joomla or how this "module" interacts with Joomla or with Kunena. I'm sorry but, in this matter, we can't really assist you. My personal advice is to stick with good old, no-frills Joomla user registration and you probably won't have any problems; however, you use whatever you choose to use because it's your site, not mine, after all.

Cheers and good luck.

PHP problems - xcache not properly configured

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

While someone may be able to help you with this issue, it is unrelated to Kunena. It is a configuration problem with your site setup. Please contact your hosts or look into the documentation for whichever system you site is hosted on.

Kunena does not handle user registration, it is handled by Joomla.

After installing Kunea forum my stable site has developed a big problem it looses contact with the user data base

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Kunena does not deal with registration or login, it is all handled by Joomla.

Get your site restored, change your password for the admin account to something that is hard to work out - use 2-3 random words and a number for example :pineedwardfoxes1989 or something like that.

Install Akeeba Backup and Akeeba Admin (pro-versions if you can afford it but there are free versions which are both excellent products). Akeeba Admin has some nice options, but READ carefully before you do anything.

Go to the Joomla.org website and read up about site security and also learn all the information required to run and administer a joomla website. Joomla makes life easier, but it does require information and knowledge to keep things running smoothly.

G'day, langster, and welcome to Kunena.

I agree with kiwi3685. If you read the FAQs page (see the menu tab above the forum) then you will find that Kunena does not handle user registration.

There are several Joomla extensions that you can use to vet new user registrations before they are allowed to login to your site and use your site's features.

You should be using Kunena 1.7.2.

Kunena does not handle registration Joomla does, so look for registration settings in Joomla.

You can make it so that new registers have to respond to an e-mail, and then in Kunena you can set so that until a user is given a certain rank by you, all their posts have to be approved, search the Documentation section.

Allowing Avatar selection on Registration

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Kunena does not handle site registration. There is no "select avatar" when you register (even with JomSocial or Community Builder). Users must choose an avatar after their registration is accepted/approved/activated. This is quite normal and it's a good feature, too, because this means that users cannot add some image that may be inappropriate for your website.

Error in Joomla when not logged in Kunea

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

AS far as I understand, the remember.php deals with setting up the cookies for the joomla registration.

But I never used the joomla registration, I just activated it when I installed kunena, cause for the Intern-Section I use a mix of kunena as board and joomla for publishing news. Since I dont want two seperate log-ins I used the Option that Kunena will use the Joomla-Log-in for itself too.

I dont know how this exactly works, but it looks like kunena makes a copy of the joomla-profil as soon as someone first enters the board?

My guess is that the Error lies somewhere in this merging of the profils or so, as for now I tried it with a clean Joomla with activated User-Registration and there no Errors appear.

But I'm also not sure if this is an Error in the CMS or indeed something in the Server Configuration.
Does Kunena need something that joomla alone dont need to handle its User-Accounts?
But since it is rented Webspace theres no chance of playing around with the Server, so I'm stick with finding a solution within the CMS/Board.

G'day, Garry, and welcome to Kunena

I'm sorry, but could you be a little bit more specific please?

"Installed the program" is a little bit like saying "put the key in the lock". Which lock: car, house, boat, caravan, truck? So which "program" are you talking about?

Garry Que:

Great program just need help with this registering a new user

Kunena is not responsible for user registration

Garry Que:

I think its in Joomla 1.6 but I'm not sure where.

Have you asked at the Joomla support forum ?

G'day, JustBe, and welcome to Kunena.

First of all, before posting messages on the forum, please read the posting guidelines that relate to each category, especially the Support category. I have moved your how-do-I-do-it question to our Common Questions category.

The answer to your first question is handled by the Kunena integration options. You should not have to worry about setting these options unless you are using a non-standard registration process. This site uses JomSocial for user registration. It doesn't really matter what you use, please look at the integration options that are applicable for your site.

The answer to your second question is to change the Joomla Global Configuration, deny user self-registration, and post a message on your site requesting that users contact you beforehand so that you can register their accounts for them. This is not a Kunena issue.

I hope this helps

G'day, sepp, and welcome to Kunena.

Thank you for your very good questions. I hope my answers will be just as good.

You do not need the Kunena Login module; it is optional. You can use whatever login module you already have; you can use the standard Joomla login module, if you like! :) The Kunena Login module gives your users a couple of extra features, that's all.

The most important point that we need to make is the Kunena does not handle user registration. Kunena does not create the Joomla user accounts when your users join your website. There is no Kunena registration function.

Joomla handles user registration. You can, if you like, install other components to assist the Joomla registration process: components like JomSocial or Community Builder, for example.

I would like though, that users can create an account consisting of password and username itself but the final activation should be done by the admin.

Unfortunately, Joomla does not have the means to do that. In Joomla you can either allow everyone to register or you allow no-one to register. There is no other option where users can start the registration process but you, as the administrator, finish it off for them. However, if you want your users to register but require your approval to complete their registration, you can do this with a Joomla extension (like Community Builder or Jomsocial). As I have already written earlier, Kunena does not have a user registration function.

Problems with jomsocial profile type and Kunena

Category: K 1.6 and K 1.7 miscellaneous third-party extensions archive

Hi all,

I use Kunena 1.6.2 with Joomla 1.5.2.2. Besides that I use Jomsocial and Jomsocial profile types to handle my registrations etc.

Untill recently that went pretty smooth, however now it appears that Kunena does not recognize the rights given to new users through jomsocial/jomsocial profile types.

I have no idea what caused my otherwise wellfunctioning system to suddenly fall appart. I did not install any new modules/extensions or upgrade Joomla/jomsocial to a new version.

The current issue:
A new user that signs up for a primary group is after admin confirmation automatically granted publisher rights through jomsocial profil types. However, while the user is correctly listed with publisher rights when viewing the user in the joomla/users, Kunena/users and Jomsocial/users, the user does not gain acces to the part of the forum that requires more than registered rights!

The quick solution has so far been to grant all my users global moderation rights (it's not that big a site and I trust my users), which gives them acces to all of the forum. However this should not be necessary and sort of removes the benifits of having jomsocial profile types to automatically allocate rights, seeing how these rights dont work in Kunena anyways.

So I guess what I am asking is:

- Is there some sort of adjustment I need to make in Kunena in order to adapt the rights granted through jomsocial profile types?

/cheers and thank you for reading
