Remove "register" from header!

Yes, like that. But you also have to change the Community Builder documentation, too, to disable the standard Joomla registration facility and only use the CB registration facility.

Like this:

Global Settings » System » User Settings » Allow User Registration = No
CB Configuration Manager » Registration » Allow User Registration = yes, independently of global site setting

And these things should work

Remove "register" from header!

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

The answer depends on whether you want to remove the option for people to register at your site or not. If you want to remove the ability for people to register at your site, then it's easy: just change the Global Configuration settings and disable the ability for people to register at your site. Kunena will use that value and will not display the option on the forum.

If you allow user registration, why would you discourage telling people how to register on the forum? Do you want to remove only the text "oder registrieren" or do you want to remove "bitte anmelden" as well?

Please read Legacy mode in the Wiki. We do not provide support for J! 1.5 sites that have the System - Legacy plugin enabled.

You are using a third-party template that was designed for an older version of Kunena that is no longer supported. Please contact the author of that template for information about an update or, if you do not want to do that, please use the standard Blue Eagle template.

You have a highly customised menu structure. Please ensure that your menu conforms to the recommendations made in Customised menus .

How is the user account "added" to the Author group? Is this done at registration time or is this done later, by you? I think this is really the key to resolving the problem. I also think we can solve this problem in less than one minute, too! Can you please tell us how users are "added" to the Author group on your site?

For everyone else's benefit, the conflicting extension is called Auto Login for User Registration . It might help to report this problem to the developer of that plugin.

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?

Category: K 1.7 Common Questions

Firstly, thank you very much for your explanation about your situation. I understand that there's some element of security distrust that may exist in your community that you wish to address and, yes, I sympathise with what you're trying to achieve both in terms of providing an effective public service while, at the same time, ensuring that members of your community do not feel personally threatened as they go about their daily activities on the forum.

The internet is a wondrous thing, isn't it? Wonderfully good and, in the hands of some people, capable of wonderful wrongdoing. The double-edgeness of the internet, notwithstanding, perhaps the single greatest feature of the internet is the ability to cloak oneself in a guise of anonymity.

And so, to turn to you specific question: can you remove the username from appearing in places where crooks may use that information for whatever nefarious, wrong or other purposes that you may suspect that they could use that information, the answer is, of course, yes. Anything is possible (as I have always maintained) but everything has a cost. If, in the final analysis, the cost of maintaining your forum with Kunena in its present form is too great then you may have to make a difficult decision and go with something else.

But I have a few suggestions you might like to consider:

(1) Lock your forum down; remove contentious topics from the public gaze and secure those things in restricted categories. In the end it's a trade-off between what you consider to be in the broader public interest versus the safety of individuals who may feel concerned about what (and where) they contribute their opinions

(2) As you say, you must allow access to some degree. You can control the degree of that access. Ultimately this needs to be a balanced view, preferably taken after discussion within your community. Make the access too difficult and you risk alienating those whose support you rely upon the most; make the access too easy and you risk your forum sliding into an abyss of confusion.

(3) Allow anonymous posting.

(4) Tighten your registration screen procedures.

(5) If you really need to modify the forum in the ways you have suggested (and I cannot offer you a simple solution) then you need to look at the PHP script that drives the forum and modify it as you need. If you lack the programming skills, and your need for maintaining the heightened layer of security for your members is paramount among all other needs, then you should look to a web programming specialist to undertake the work for you.

Beyond the things I've mentioned, there's not a lot more than I can suggest. As I mentioned earlier, perhaps a web-based discussion forum is not the appropriate communication medium for your group. Perhaps your group, watchful of their need for safety, would be better advised to use paper-based distribution of material, or email, or some other communication medium.

NOT receiving email notification when new users register

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

Customize new password email

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

This was moved because

(a) Registration, login, password resetting, etc., are not functions handled by Kunena. Please see How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website?

(b) Customising email layout/content in relation to things like "resetting password" emails is, in broad terms, a Joomla issue. Perhaps there is a member of the community who may have an interest in helping you or, perhaps, you might like to ask your question on the Joomla help forum (forum.joomla.org).

Please read the category description that appears at the top of this page.

Thank you.

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.

The answer to this question depends on whether you allow user registrations or not. Look at your Joomla Global Configuration settings to see if you allow user registration.

Could you post a screenshot of the top of your Kunena forum, please? Are you using the Blue Eagle Kunena template?

Did you resolve your earlier problems reported to us? It would be good to get closure on that topic. Thank you.

It's difficult to know where to begin with this. In the absence of sufficiently detailed pointers as to what's going on here (screen images or configuration reports, for example) an those difficulties are further compounded within a community-driven, self-help forum context to provide detailed analysis and advice in this situation.

In the first instance, I would start testing by creating a vanilla-flavoured Joomla site (with nothing added, no additional templates or anything fancy - except that I'd enable SEO), and then install Kunena, and create a few users, and see how these users are created. Then, if everything worked as expected, I would install CB 1.8 and make sure that the user registration process continued to work as expected.

If, indeed, you have installed Kunena and made no changed to Joomla's ACL settings, or made any changed to Joomla's Global Configuration settings (except, as I suggested, in the area of SEO), then I am as puzzled as you are.

All is not lost however. There may be ways we can help you but, before we pursue that path, I suggest you try my idea first and create a test site on your hosted platform to make sure that everything works as it should work "out of the box". Does that sound like a viable plan to you?

I'm sorry but I find that statement difficult to accept because I am totally unaware of this to be true. If this were true I would expect that we would have received numerous questions - not to mention complaints - about it.

I think you enabled this plugin yourself. I could be wrong; I am often wrong.

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?

You originally posted a question in a category of this forum that is deals with questions about the Kunena Login module. From what you have written (and it has taken us 4 days to get to this point) you do not have a question about the Kunena Login module. You are asking a question about how new user registrations create records in the Kunena user table.

Can you please post your Kunena configuration report so that we can answer further questions you may have? Thank you.
