Just wondering if there is any way to automatically send out a 'Welcome' message which invites the new member to read the Rules and Help pages of the forum and then also suggests that they start posting by putting their introductions in the 'Welcome' section.
Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login
I think I have written
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).
Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login. Kunena uses whatever registration and login modules that you have decided to use on your site. Unfortunately, the configuration report generator for K 2.0.0 does not show your backend Kunena Forum » Plugin Manager » Kunena - Joomla Integration settings. This information may, or may not, assist you.
The important thing is to find out the cause of the
HTTP 500 Internal Server Error
and, by enabling Kunena debug mode, you should be able to find that out.
HTTP 403 Forbidden
status codes can occur in Joomla from a variety of causes. Generally, HTTP 403 Forbidden means that access to a file/folder you are trying to open has been denied, either on purpose or due to a misconfiguration. Check the webserver's error log when troubleshooting.
Diagnosing HTTP 403 Forbidden errors is similar to the process described in the Wiki article
HTTP 500 Internal Server Error
even though the way you fix HTTP 403 Forbidden errors will be different. In the error log you will see a list of the last error messages generated by your website. In this list you will find detailed information about each error including: the date and time of the error, some information about the client receiving the error, description of the error and information about which folder or file on your account is generating the error.
Therefore, you need to find out why people are being blocked from accessing their profile. Check, among other things,
Some of those other things include extra Joomla extensions that you may be using, for example, the
Auto Login for User Registration
one that I mentioned earlier or maybe it's something else. What other extensions are you using that affect the way you login to your website?
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
to search for other extensions that may help you.
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.
