I hope you do not mind, ymages, that I merged your topic here. I am taking a wild leap of faith in guessing that I know the answer to your question but I hope you'll forgive me if I was wrong.

I would like you to read from msg #123 (and after) a question very similar to yours. In this other person's case, they found the answer to their question by searching beyond Kunena. I hope this helps but, if it doesn't help you, the more information you can provide us ... the better. ;)

raffe wrote: So, when you keep saying "Joomla is responsible for login and register" it's not totally true. You use your link for CB registering. It would be better if you link to the Joomla standard login function.

I have not said that and I do not continue to say that. What I have continually stated is that Kunena is not responsible for site login or user registration; these are functions that exist outside of Kunena that may be driven by Joomla or by Joomla extensions (e.g. JomSocial, Community Builder) for which mechanisms exist in Kunena to aid those functions.

I understand what you are saying when you wrote, "It would be easier if I could remove the line 'Create a user account' in Kunena". There are ways you can do that. One way is to disable user registrations; no user registrations => no "create an account link". A different approach you can take is to disable the ability to login and/or register by disabling any and all Kunena integration plugin setting that relate to the term "login". I am fairly sure we have received many requests like your over time and a search of the forum would probably give you the information you require.

You have a choice: set Kunena to use Joomla to register (and then you will have your CAPTCHA) or remove the ability to login/register from Kunena. That's a question only you can answer. I have my opinion which is better to do but it's your website and only you know which is the better choice for you. :)

Thank you for your reply and I think I know what's happened in your case.

Your "normal" registration link, on your home page, uses the normal Joomla registration procedure and, CAPTCHA works fine with that. The registration link on the Kunena forum page uses the Community Builder registration procedure (which is different). Unless you know how to configure CAPTCHA for CB (and I don't know how you do that) then you will not have CAPTCHA. The alternative is to configure the integration plugin for Kunena - Community Builder and disable the option to use CB's login.

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

Your right. The FAQ information is wrong - it was correct for K 1.7 but it needs to be updated because of the changes made in K 2.0 with the introduction of integration plugins that I referred to above. I will update this information as soon as I can. Thank you. :)

G'day, Ralph, and welcome to Kunena

As we have written before I this topic, (see msg #2 of this topic):
Kunena is not responsible for site registration or login issues.

I think the most important question is, without using Kunena, do new user registrations use CAPTCHA on your site? If your new users on your site already use CAPTCHA, then why would you want to remove the "Create an account" link in Kunena?

If you want to safeguard your Joomla regration procedure with CAPTCHA then you can do this I J! 2.5.9, or you can use other registration tools, like JomSocial, for example, which have built-in CAPTCHA protection. I suggest you read msg #87 in this topic where you find more information about registering with CAPTCHA. You can easily remove the "Create an account" link in Kunena by disabling account registration in Joomla, if that's what you want to do.

I hope this helps.

As I thought, this proves that the problem has nothing to do with Kunena. See msg #2 of How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website? where you will see, in large letters:

Kunena is not responsible for user registration or login to your website

You have a user registration problem but it has nothing to do with Kunena. I suggest you try When all else fails, try this

As far as the other extensions are concerned, (BT Content Slider and jw_sigpro), we know nothing about these things or whether they are affecting your site. At this point I am just guessing. Perhaps the problem is caused by some setting change you have made in Joomla Global Configuration. Put the values back to their original settings and see if this fixes the problem and then change, one by one, the settings until the problem occurs again.

I had a quick look at your website. From my quick look, I noticed that you are using .html page suffixes; this is not what was recommended in the advice contained in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) . Perhaps you have not used the other recommendations in that advice also?

We may be able to assist you better if you post your Kunena configuration report. The only other change that I have noticed is that you have upgraded to K 2.0.4.

"Invalid token" is a symptom of a problem with Joomla session control. You may also like to search the Joomla forum (forum.joomla.org) for information about "invalid token" when trying to create new accounts.

Please note, Kunena is not responsible for user registration. Kunena uses whatever user registration procedure that your site would normally use. Please read the FAQ information on this point >>> here <<<

Last of all, Joomla sessions require that your browser allows you to store session cookies. One possible reason why you can create accounts in Safari but not with other browsers is if you have disabled cookies in your browser. Joomla will not work without cookies.

This usually means that you have not properly configured email to work with your Joomla site. This is not a Kunena matter. For help on configuring email, please ask at forum.joomla.org

By the way, the information posted in msg #2 works best in K 2.5.9.

This has nothing to do with the registration problem. I do not understand the issues you seem to be having or how they are related to Kunena.

I suggest that you start a new topic on this forum, include in that topic a screenshot that shows, clearly, where are these links that you are referring to. Thanks for your co-operation in this matter, to separate the two issues into two separate topics.

powsurfer wrote: The [information] you referred me to does not have the correct links/paths to follow. None of these exist in my up-to-date versions of Joomla and Kunena.

Perhaps, I had assumed too much when I referred you to msg #2. A lot of things have changed (both in Joomla and in Kunena) and it's not always easy for us to stay on top of these changes and correct the hundreds or thousands of answers that we've posted over the past 4 years. Please accept my apology for assuming that you were au fait with the specifics. Even though the specific details may now seem confusing, the general principles remain the same.

powsurfer wrote: >>>
You can change whether you allow users to register. This is done (in Joomla) with the setting

You can provide your users with a place to login (in Kunena) with the forum setting:

At the time when I posted the information you have quoted, J! 1.5 was still very much in predominant usage. As far as J! 2.5 is concerned (and a few things changed between J! 1.5 and J! 2.5), the configuration settings you need to look at are now located

User Manager » Options » Component » Allow User Registration = Yes / No

With K 2.0, the second of the two issues you quoted is controlled with the Kunena - Joomla plugin. In your case I can see, from your configuration report, that you have set the proper value for that plugin. For the benefit of others reading this topic, people should go to

Components » Kunena Forum » Kunena Plugins » Kunena - Joomla Integration » Enable Joomla Login = Yes / No

powsurfer wrote: The only users who can login at the moment are those logged into the main site

Your forum is part of your main site. It is not a separate "site". If users can register at your site then they are "registered" users and they can use your forum. If users can login to your site then they are logged-in to use your forum, too.

powsurfer wrote: Q -I have done some reading around - is it that I need to create a registration/login from within Joomla, not Kunena and set the correct permissions?

You already have a registration procedure at your site. You should not have to change anything. I do not know what you mean by "set the correct permissions". If you have not changed any permissions then your users will be able to register themselves (by using either the Create an account link on your site home page or by using the Create an account link on your forum) I do not understand what problems your users are having at the moment. Both of the links that I referred to (taken from your website) go to the same location.

powsurfer wrote: This is the go to bottom link htfcfans.co.uk/#forumbottom

Where is this link displayed on your site. Can you help us understand how this information is involved with the current problems that you are having? Let's try to remain on-topic and not confuse too many issues at the one time. :)

powsurfer wrote: Q - is my 'confidential' log file viewable by all?

If you read the FAQs information (the link I posted in my earlier reply) you will see that the confidential information is only viewable by you (when you are logged-in at this site), the moderators (obviously when they are logged-in at this site) and by no-one else. Try it for yourself. Logout from this site and then look if you can see any of the confidential information. That's the easiest way to answer your question. ;)

I have not tried to register myself at your website. If people cannot register (because the registration procedure you are using responds with "please complete all fields" then that is probably a matter you should discuss using the Joomla forum . I repeat: Kunena has no "registration procedure". Kunena uses the registration procedure that you have defined that you want to use. There are other registration tools available (as separate extensions) - that are mentioned in msg #2 of this topic - but this does not change my advice to you.

G'day, powsurfer, and welcome to Kunena.

If you read the FAQs page, or msg #2 of this topic, you will see that Kunena is not responsible for user registration. I do not know what registration procedure you are using, or what login procedure you are using, but Kunena should use whatever you would normally use and however those registration and login procedures are configured. If they are configured wrongly then Kunena will use those things wrongly.

G'day, aelgate3, and welcome to Kunena.

Generally-speaking, email notifications sent to the administrator(s) will be sent to the email addresses used in those administrator email accounts. Therefore, to change the address that you want to use to receive email notifications from your forum, use the Joomla User Manager and change the email address in those user accounts.

The sending email address is the same with the received. I don't want that.

I'm not entirely sure that I understand what you mean. Can you explain more about what is currently happening?

G'day, Karen and welcome to Kunena

There are three issues here:

(1) You are using a third party product that is not associated with the Kunena project;
(2) There's a problem with Joomla displaying an account registration page; and
(3) There's a problem involving Kunena when you "login to your Joomla administration site".

I have not heard of a product called Kunena Light Protection but if you mean Forum Protection Light then you should ask the developer of that product if it compatible with K 2.0.3.

In relation to user registration and login issues, generally-speaking, the general advice is to read the FAQs page that addresses how Kunena is involved in such things. Basically, Kunena is not involved with such things; these are matters that are controlled by how you have setup Joomla to allow for user registration and login. You should also read what we have written in the past about user registration in How do I register new users to my website and where should they login to use my website?

The third issue has me intrigued.

I found another topic that mentions "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/corpsvqb/public_html/administrator/components/com_kunena/views/templates/tmpl/edit.php on line 67": Adding new default Topic Icons and Category Icons but I don't know whether your problem relates to that one.

G'day, bookster, and welcome to Kunena

I suggest that you read the FAQs page that appears at the top of the forum. Because user registration is not controlled by Kunena, if you have a problem with users registering at your site it is because of the way that you have implemented Joomla. See msg #2 in this topic for more information.

While it may have been possible for duplicated user profiles to have been created, could you please tell us if new user registrations on your site are creating further duplicate user profiles. If new registrations are not creating further duplicates then it should be fairly straightforward to remove the duplicates that you now have by deleting them from the database.
