Problems with Menu assignments and Kunena

Post by zupidupi » Thu Aug 18, 2011 7:10 pm

Hi folks,

My Kunena-installation doesn't seem to read my Menu assignments under the module management.

I have assigned a module not to be seen under a menu item linked to a few components - JEvents, PhocaDownload and Kunena, to name but a few.

When the other components are selected (Calendar, Documents...) the module disappears nicely, just like it should. This doesn't happen when I select the Kunena forum.

Is this a known problem with Kunena, or are the Menu assignments in Joomla faulty?

Kunena module should be set to kunena position. Kunena (when installed) adds a menu item called 'Forum'. If you have created another menu item called 'Forum' (or moved the original then installed again) the 2 menu items will conflict.

Ah - that would explain a lot. Now, what should I do if this added menu item hsa disappeared? And, what should I do if I had a bilingual site -> one menu in each language containing a link to the forum?

If you use more than one language then Enable the 'System - Language Filter' Plugin. And install the language pack for the second language.

Never mind, I solved my problem. In both menus I created a Menu alias to the Home item in the Kunena menu. Then, under the module settings, I did an "Exclude selection" for all the items in the Kunena menu. Works like a charm! Thanks for the golden tip, dongle!

Who you calling a 'dongle' >:(

Making it an 'Alias' menu item type works well
