The Kunena Configuration feature allows users to tailor Kunena's functions to their specific site needs. This feature allows, for example, users to decide what they will call their forum page, whether forum messages can be posted by anonymous users or only by registered users of the site, and whether other third-party components (like private messaging) are to be used. Many of the choices can be made according to individual tastes; some, however, may cause unexpected consequences if they're not handled correctly.

As a general guide, the default settings that ship with Kunena's installation kit will be adequate for most purposes.

Basics

This article describes how to change the Kunena configuration parameters.

Accessing the Kunena Configuration feature

Go to the Kunena Backend and select the Kunena Configuration feature.

Configuration Page

There are two basic functions: Save and Restore Default.

Save function

  • Any changes become effective by clicking the 'Save' button located at the top left of the page.

Restore Default function

  • This restores the default configuration parameters for Kunena.

List of settings

The settings are arranged in the groupings listed below. The default/initial values are settings that are supplied with a clean installation of Kunena. If a previously-installed version of Kunena or Fireboard had been installed on the user's site, the old values will be preserved.

New versions of Kunena may add or remove items in the list below. Please check your version of Kunena.
