Replied by sozzled on topic change registration.php

change registration.php

Category: German

This topic was originally posted in the K 3.0 General Questions category (this is the original link: www.kunena.org/forum/k-3-0-general-quest...istration-php#162693) partly in English and partly in German.

The original question (translated into English):

Hi, we need help to change the registration!

The new form should have:

- rename the field name to last name
- additional the first name
- when it comes User Profile and associated fields omit!
- then you have the post of a contribution first name and last name appear


Yes, it would have been better if the whole question had been asked in English but it also may have been better if the answer had been written in English, too.

For the benefit of others who may like to read the answer in English:

== Topic shifted to the German Category ==
Kunena has nothing to do with the registration. This is done via Joomla. You can customise the Joomla registration form by enabling the plugin "User - Profile" and there make your desired setting changes active.

The only option in Kunena is in the setting "Configuration> Users> Show Name = No", then the real name is displayed instead of the user name. To display name and surname in contributions, the user would have to have registered both name and surname enter on the same line.


rich is correct. This similar question has been asked before in this forum. The answer is

Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login

If someone can make this changes, we will pay for this work!

There are other products that may help you. I think you may find something useful in the topic User registration and/or general login issues

Blank Page after Registration

Category: K 3.0 General Questions

I used Kunena forum make registration but after submitting, it turn into blank page.

As we have written before in this forum ,

Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login

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

Forum send emails to all users when new user registers.

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

...if you were to register on my site ever single user on my site would receive an email with the following:

Hello administrator,

A new user 'Gregtest', username 'gregtest', has registered at mydomain.com

This makes total, reasonable sense for site administrators to receive such emails but it does not make sense for normal/unprivileged, registered users to receive such emails unless you have modified the access rights, in the backend, to give your registered users elevated privileges to this Joomla feature.

As I have written before on this forum , unlike standalone forum applications (e.g. phpBB) Kunena is not responsible for user registration or for the processes surrounding user registration.

No one is a admin on my site except me so that isn't the case so they shouldn't get the mail.

If this is the case then I agree. No-one—except for administrators—should receive these kinds of emails.

According to the official Joomla documentation , the setting Receive System Emails only applies to site administrators. Therefore, it does not matter what setting you're using because they should not receive these kinds of emails ... unless you have changed the default Joomla access level permissions in the backend (see, among other things, Every new user has Administrator rights ).

... each individual user you can change receive system email ... but would you want to click on 1000 users and change this?

The normal, default setting for Receive System Emails is "No" (for normal unprivileged users) unless you have changed something; the default value for system administrators is "Yes" (again, unless you have changed something). This setting, notwithstanding, in a standard, well-behaved Joomla installation, it should not really matter what value you have set this to as far as this discussion is concerned. The situation only applies if the user has the setting Receive System Emails = Yes and if that user is an administrator (or has administrator access to the registration component).

If I had more information about your website — unfortunately I am not a moderator on this forum and therefore I do not have access to the confidential information in your configuration report — I might be able to help you more. I'm doing the best I can with the information that you've given.

K 3.0.5: Registration does not work

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Kunena is not responsible for account registration. Please see User registration and/or general login issues

The message means that there is already an account registered on your website that has the same username as the one that you are trying to use. You need to use a different username. Also, the message about passwords not matching means exactly that.

These messages are not generated by Kunena. You might also find this reference helpful: stackoverflow.com/questions/13215094/wha...r-name-in-joomla-2-5 (the information is also similar for J! 3.x).

You have three "issues".

We prefer that people use one topic for one issue.

If you could split this topic into three issues we might be better able to deal with each issue, one at a time.

The third issue you seem to be having concerns the user registration page. Kunena is not responsible for user registration, nor is Kunuena responsible for issues that you might be having with the user registration page. The user registration page is controlled by Joomla. The Kunena profilebox simply provides a link to the Joomla registration page used by your website. This matter is discussed in more detail in User registration and login issues

Another of your issues seems to involve the message "You cannot access the private section of the site". This matter is discussed in more detail in the topic Permission issue: "Warning You cannot access the private section of this site" . You should use that topic to discuss that matter. I am not sure if this is the first or second issue you referred to in your original message. Regarding your suggestion about trying to register and/or login to your website, we do not register ourselves at other people's websites. Do you have a test account we can use to try to login to your website?

I do not understand what you mean by "When viewing the forum the menu is screwed up. This only happens when using the menu forum item as the kunena forum home page."

Attempted update K 3.0.4 (originally J! 2.5.9 but later updated to J! 2.5.17): killed the extension

Category: K 3.0 Installation and Upgrade Archive

Just wondering since my developer mentioned it :
"To help you narrow it down, do you know if you installed anything that directly affects the user tables? For example a login bridge, like for Kunena?"

A "login bridge"? I don't know what you mean.

After upgrading to Joomla! 2.5.17 from J!2.5.9 I have unacceptable problems with new user registrations.

Kunena is not responsible for Joomla site registration. See User registration and/or general login issues and our FAQs page.

Warning - JFTP: :rename: Bad response - Rename failed error after installation

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

I installed K 3.0.1 on Joomla 3.1 and configured the forum. The installation went fine ...

This topic was originally created in the K 3.0 Installation and Upgrade category. This category is normally used when people have problems with the actual installation process and should not be confused with problems that people may encounter after they have successfully installed Kunena.

When I login or register a new user I am getting

Warning - JFTP: :rename: Bad response - Rename failed

This problem relates to user registration. As we have written on this forum before - see the FAQs page where this is written -
Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login to your website

I have moved this topic to the Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla category because we are discussing a general Joomla issue.

I don't think this is the right solution. I need the FTP layer, and with this solution its not available. Arent there other options?

I am not going to question whether it is a good idea or a bad idea to enable the Joomla FTP layer. There are hundreds of discussions on the Joomla forum that discuss this issue. The point I want to make is that enabling the Joomla FTP layer is not something directly related to Kunena.

I suggest you write to the Joomla forum with the question "Is it a good idea to enable the Joomla FTP layer?" and see what responses you get. Perhaps you might like to summarise the body of opinion about using the Joomla FTP layer and present your findings here.

My own preference is to not enable the Joomla FTP layer on any of my Joomla websites. Like Jiminmonka wrote earlier, I use FileZilla for my FTP needs.

We have a standard answer to these kinds of questions.

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. :)

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

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.
