User registration and/or general login issues

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

GigaOrion: your question has been asked and answered in this topic. Kunena is not responsible for user registration. Site registration is a function of Joomla. Joomla does not have a "new registration approval" procedure but other components, like JomSocial and Community Builder do have this function. You can use the JED to search for other extensions that may help you.

[Resolved] Registered Users: Force Username to be Firstname + Surname

Category: K 1.6 and K 1.7 Common Questions Archive

I thought about this question for a long time but I cannot give a better answer than Matias has done.

"Basic" Joomla, itself, does not separate the "real name" data into first name and last name and, because Joomla does not do this there's no way of enforcing a name policy when your users register on your site. The only thing that "basic" Joomla knows about is the "real name" and, whatever a user enters in this field when they register, that's what Kunena is able to use (as Matias wrote), too.

Other extensions, like Community Builder, may be useful in this regard, too. I remind everyone reading this that Kunena is not responsible for user registration: see How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website?

K 1.7 How to setup CAPTCHA for registered users

Category: K 1.6 and K 1.7 Common Questions Archive

I don't need [CAPTCHA] for inserting posts (they are all registered users...) but I need it for creating a forum user.

That's a different question to the one I thought you were asking. User registration has nothing to do with Kunena.

I'm trying to make CAPTCHA work but I can't. I can't see it when I register as a new user [and] neither when I post a message to the forum

When I read this I saw two questions; my reply to you was in response to the second of those questions.

In response to your main question - using CAPTCHA as part of a user registration procedure - please read How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website? . Kunena is not responsible for user registration.

I cannot login to my website

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Please see msg #2 of How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website?

Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login. What do you mean, exactly, that "it" won't let you sign in to your forum?

NOT receiving email notification when new users register

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Please read How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website?

Kunena is not responsible for user registration or for problems associated with generating emails relating to account activation. These things are Joomla issues.

Has Kunena added "User Profile" fields to my Joomla registration component?

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

It looks as if installing Kunena has added a bunch of "User Profile" fields to my custom Joomla 2.5 Registration component.

No way! Kunena is not responsible for user registration - that's the start, middle and end of the answer! See the FAQs menu tab above this page: How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website?

*** Topic moved from the K 1.7 Support category to a more appropriate category for for this type of question ***


Thanks Sozzled - yes I found that out myself.

Kunena had simply enabled the Joomla User profile plugin which I have now disabled and all is well.

(1) Kunena is not responsible for user registration. See FAQs How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website?

(2) A guest is someone who does not login to your site. Therefore I do not understand your question.

How to protect my forum from spam

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

The whole problem about spam on the forum - any forum, not just Kunena - starts with you, how you manage your website and whom you allow to post on your forum. If you only allow registered users to post on the forum then if you can stop spam registrations (or, at least, if you can make it more difficult for spam accounts to be registered) you've won the battle. Kunena is not responsible for user registration, pure and simple. Therefore your question about how to stop people registering on your website with similar email addresses is best answered elsewhere.

Site registration - no confirmation page - redirected to to the home page; have to scroll down to see the 'Go activate your profile' link.

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

G'day, burf16, and welcome to Kunena.

To make it easier to help us to help you faster, we ask everyone who posts topics in this Support section to read the posting guide first. The Guide to posting questions when asking for support appears on the Index page of this forum and a copy also appears at the top of this page.

We ask people who post of the forum to ask one question for each topic.

(1) User registration "confirmation" Please read the FAQs page (see the menu link above this forum): How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website? Kunena is not responsible for user registration.

(2) Unable to edit Kunena user profile Without seeing your configuration report and, unless we had a test account for your site (so that we may see what's happening for ourselves), it's my guess that you have a routing conflict. This could be caused having a third-party SEO product or not setting up your menu correctly. I can't tell you any more than that, sorry, and my guess could be wrong.

Integration of Joomla 1.5 login with Kunena login

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

You indicate that which login interface is used to get on the forum does not matter;
I think you mean that registration to the overall site, let's say, on the Home page, or to the Forum itself, are one and the same? But reading the link you gave me it says
"Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login to your website".
so I'm back to my question: is one of these logins a child of the other?
If a user first registers on the forum, does it mean the user is not yet registered on the site, for instance, this user could not post comments to articles posted on other pages?
And if a user first registered on the site, is this user automatically logged in as well to the forum?
Are the datbases used for login both ways (site or forum) one and the same?

You mentioned a "Kunena login" module; how does it differ from the login interface that the Kunena forum comes with? Does it allow the administrator to ask and filter for more questions, like, "are you over 18"?

Sorry to ask all these very basic questions, I did find the wiki but there is not very much info there. The "Tips and Tricks" section is very promiding but unfortunately, they do not mention the versions they apply to, and I expect some may have been written for older versions.
Being new to Kunena, I need to know, are all instructions upward-compatible from older versions?

ReCaptcha on Joomla 1.7.3 and Kunena 1.7.1 dosnt help

Category: K 1.7 Support

G'day, Patrik, and welcome to Kunena.

See Using CAPTCHA spam protection in Kunena . I don't know anything about Joo Recaptcha plugin or whether it works with Kunena.

You posted your question in the K 1.6 and K 1.7 Support category. Please see the posting guide printed at the top of this page. How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website? , in any way, for account registration. In what way, therefore, is this a technical problem for Kunena?

We understand that many site owners have problems with spam. Those problems, however, are more about why spammers are attracted to their websites and what counter-spam registration procedures people have put in place on their websits than they are about Kunena. Some people have even suggest that Kunena is responsible for their websites receiving attention from spammers. We're not here to engage in speculation; there is a topic for that: How to protect my forum from spam .

What is this "bug" do you suspect and where do you think this "bug" lives?

Moving stuff to site global. Newb needs strategy.

Category: K 1.6 and K 1.7 Common Questions Archive

There are a lot of questions here, too many to give a detailed reply to each.

Kunena is not responsible for user registration. Whatever you use for user registration, Kunena simply goes along with that. There are no integration issues for Kunena here.

Login is a slightly different matter. In very broad terms, you may need to tweak your Kunena intergration settings on what you use for your users to login. Most users do not need to change their Kunena configuration settings.

Joomla search can search Kunena forum content. You will need the Kunena Search plugin for that.

Who is online? yes, it covers who is logged-in whether they are using the forum or not.

What do you want your users to "access" or not via the Kunena user profile? Can you please be more specific?

no email notifications with upgrades

Category: K 1.6 and K 1.7 Common Questions Archive

See here how we are stopping spammers: lineboring.org/login/register

Yes, that's a good idea. It might also be a good idea to post your suggestion (and how you achieve the 404 message) by contributing to the discussion How to protect my forum from spam . I am sure that a lot of people would appreciate your idea.

We hoped to get an email that the admin could approve a new member by looking at all the details in the signup. Instead the admin must go to the admin area and see all the new user details before approving.

Yes, as you know, Kunena is not responsible for handling the registration of new accounts on a Joomla website and Community Builder is one useful way to help. The topic How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website? has some useful tips in this regard.

I'm pleased to hear that you've resolved the mail issues and I think we can archive this topic now. :)
