Migrating Kunena from Joomla 2.5.2X to Joomla 3.3

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

I'm not sure that it's possible (in a pure database sense) to have two user accounts with the same user id. It is theoretically possible to have two user accounts with the same username but the Joomla registration procedure prevents this from happening in practice.

Here's the structure of the index for the Joomla user table that illustrates the technical impossibility of having two accounts with the same user id but the technical possibility of having two accounts with the same username (even though, in practice, this is highly improbable).

Kunena does not send account registration/confirmation emails. Joomla is responsible for those things.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm fairly sure that we have received enquiries about how to automatically populate fields into the Kunena user profile from data collected at registration time (e.g. www.kunena.org/forum/custom-work-not-off...o-my-kunena-template). Most of these enquiries go unanswered because no-one seems to have found the answer.

When a person registers at your site a very basic [Kunena] forum profile is automatically created in the table _kunena_users; this table is not populated with data held in the table _users. If I put this another way, nothing is copied from the Joomla user table and put into the Kunena user profile.

After a user registers at your site they may then add other information into their Kunena user profile, for example, gender, location, signature and a few other things. Other "social networking" Joomla extensions (like JomSocial and Community Builder) work similarly.

I am not aware of a tool (a Joomla plugin, for instance) that automatically populates another Joomla extension "user profile" from the Joomla user profile. I am guessing that it would be possible to write a tool but I haven't really looked into it.

Automatically populating the Kunena user profile with extra information obtained at registration time is either a request for a feature to be added to a future version of Kunena (and the likely timeframe for this to happen could many months away before it becomes part of the standard core Kunena product), or this is a request for custom work. I'm just stating the facts as I know them.

You have some choices:

(a) suggest to your membership that they take the extra time to update their Kunena user profiles themselves;

(b) consider installing JomSocial or Community Builder which have their own registration procedures and use either of these instead of the Kunena user profile; or

(c) consider how you want to proceed with your request to automatically copy data collected by the Joomla registration process across to the Kunena user profile as a custom job. We have two categories in this forum for custom work - one where you offer to pay someone to do this work and the other where you make no offer of payment.

I hope this helps.

G'day, Dan, and welcome to Kunena.

If I understand you correctly, your current Joomla registration procedure asks new members to ender the location/city where they live and you would like Kunena to import this information and use it as part of their Kunena signature. Is that correct?

If my understanding of what you want is correct, the current Kunena package does not include that functionality.

You wrote that you need to have this information in the forum user's signature - you used the word "necessary". Of course, if you need to do something that is not part of the standard package, this is a custom job. The question that you need to ask yourself is whether this necessary requirement is worth the cost involved in making whatever it takes to give you a solution. You may want to reconsider whether this necessary requirement is genuine or whether it's something that would be "nice to have" if it could be done cheaply.

As you can see by looking at my user profile here on this website, I have voluntarily included the city where I live when I updated by Kunena user profile. The city where I live is displayed as part of the standard Kunena package (but not in the signature field that you need in your case). That's a cheap alternative.

If, however, you really need to have the city inserted into the user's signature when they post on your forum, please reply and we will see what can be done. You should keep in mind that "nothing is impossible but everything has a cost". ;)

How to separate Kunena users from Joomla Users?

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

I think you should read the background information in User registration and login issues and Can I run Kunena without Joomla and you will then understand the reasons why your request is not possible. The simple fact is that Joomla users automatically become forum users (unless you have some special ACL rules that prevent your users from using the forum).

And that's the best answer I can give you based on the information that you have given us.

I hope this helps.

Depending on the version of Joomla that you use, you can use ReCAPTCHA with Joomla's account registration procedure. Instructions for use are given in How do you use Recaptcha in Joomla?

How to disable reCaptcha from the registration page

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

Please note that issues relating to user registration , including the use or CAPTCHA with account registration, are not under the direct control of Kunena software but are controlled by Joomla. It is not unsurpring, however, that re-installing software (including Kunena software) may resolve all manner of site problems ... even extending to unrelated issues like account registration.

For the benefit of other people reading this topic, there is no essential difference between the forum login and the Joomla login because Kunena uses the Joomla login process (even if the interface looks different). This issue - trying to explain to people that there is no essential difference between the Kunena login and the Joomla Login, is covered in considerable detail in the topic User registration and/or general login issues .

When you users create an account at your site - when the "register" at your site - they automatically are able to use your forum (unless you have otherwise prevented them form using your forum). This question is often asked. It is answered in the topic User registration and/or general login issues .

Category: Miscellaneous, off-topic and general Joomla

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."

Your new accounts are joined to the Joomla group that you have defined in the options in the User Manager.

(1) Go to Joomla User Manager » Options

(2) Look at Component » New User Registration Group (see screensopt below):



Cronie wrote: All the people that have registered on my forum are being called "users" .... so what is registered?

"Users" are the accounts that people have. "Registered" is the name of a "user group" (technically, it is the name of a Joomla ACL group).

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

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

I am assuming that you want to allow "kids" to register at your website and be permitted to view (all or some) parts of your forum but not be allowed to post messages in (all or some) parts of it. Is my assumption correct?

The answer is not that difficult but the answer really depends on the question. I'm just making sure that I fully understand your question and what it is that you want to do. :)

maspegren wrote: This can't be done automatically can it? Currently each registered user is set to the "registered" access level automatically as soon as they register.

Actually, it can be done automatically; it's just a matter of setting an option in the new user registration "policy" within Joomla - although it may depend on which version of Joomla you're currently using. ;)
