Makes me question Kunena and security

G'day, Espen, and welcome to Kunena.

Please read How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website? . The Kunena forum software is not responsible for user registration or how you create an account on this website.

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?

(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.

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.

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?

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. :)

Changing the forum emails

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

If you read our FAQs (or searched this forum for the words "registration" with "emails") you would quickly discover that Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login. This point is emphasised in How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website?

In other words, this is a Joomla issue (or it's an issue of any third party written extension that you're using for site registration). Your question has probably been asked and answered on the Joomla forum (forum.joomla.org) and it usually involves making a couple of appropriate changes to your Joomla Global Configuration settings unless, as I wrote, you're not using "basic" Joomla for user registration. I hope that helps.

How can I change the language of the register page?

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Thank you for explaining what you mean by the "registration page in Kunena". The screen image that you showed is the registration page generated by Community Builder. As I wrote in msg #2 in this topic, this is not a question for this forum; this is a question about the registration software that you are using on your website. If you have a problem with Community Builder please refer your questions about that software to Joomlapolis . Thank you.

For others who may be reading this topic and for anyone who does not take the trouble to 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 login
Very simply, there is no "registration page in Kunena".

I'm experiencing some problems with my kunena forum module, new users cannot register successfully

Kunena is not responsible for user registration. See FAQs (use the tab at the top of this page). You have a Joomla problem or a webserver problem.

Deleting accounts?

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

As we have often said in the past, Kunena is not responsible for site registration (see How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website? )

When you register yourself on a Joomla website, unless the site offers you an "unregister" option, you place yourself in the hands of (and at the mercy of) the manager of that site. If you have issues involving your need to unregister yourself at a particular website then you must resolve those matters with the manager of that site. This is not a Kunena issue nor is it something that we can help you with here. This is a private matter between you as the manager of the site in question.

In resolving issues reported to us, we do not register ourselves at users' websites for the simple reason that, once registered, we cannot unregister ourselves. That's "par for the course"; that's the way that most Joomla sites operate. It's a question of personal security, nothing more. If people are unsure about the registration policy implemented at any website and they are concerned about their personal security, they should ask the site manager to explain their privacy policy and means for unregistering user accounts. If the site manager is not prepared to answer those questions then it's your choice to accept or not accept the risk attached to registering with a site that you know nothing about.

User registration and/or general login issues

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Thank you for a very good question. I think we have answered this question several hundred times, but I am going to sticky this post in the hope that other might read it and learn more about what they need to do.

I have got the Kunena Forum working a treat but have one small question which has me puzzled. There seems to be no where to allow users to register.

Out-of-the-box, Kunena works without you having to do anything at all. If you don't make any changes to the initial default settings, K 1.6 allows users to login to post messages on the forum and to register with your site assuming that you have allowed users to register at your site.

However, we need to make one point absolutely clear:

Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login

I think I have written that statement over one hundred times. Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login. These are standard Joomla features or they may be assisted by other Joomla extensions that you have installed (e.g. JomSocial or Community Builder).

You can change whether you allow users to register. This is done (in Joomla) with the setting
Global Configuration » System » User Settings » Allow User Registration = Yes / No

You can provide your users with a place to login (in Kunena) with the forum setting:
Forum Configuration » Integration » Integration Options » Login and Registration

For those who are new to Joomla, and who want to get a head-start building websites, I strongly recommend that you buy or borrow one of the following books:
  • Using Joomla by Ron Severdia and Kenneth Crowder, published by O'Reilly Media Inc. Ron Severdia is also a member of the Kunena development team.
  • Beginning Joomla! From Novice to Professional by Dan Rahmel, published by Apress. Although this book is a little dated, the general principles are similar.
I own these books, they're excellent value and I know they will answer all your questions for a long time to come!

A couple of other points that people should know about:

Kunena is not responsible for
  • sending out "confirm this message" emails when people register
  • the format or details of "confirm this message" emails when people register
  • making sure that people actually use the forum
  • making sure that all the user's registration details are correct or checking that the user has a valid email address; or
  • the Global Financial Crisis of 2007 or the Fukishima nuclear power plant disaster ... just in case you were wondering
