Hello,
just upgraded a Joomla 1.5.26 site with CB1.8 and Kunena1.7.2

Problem:
The latest module behaves different in Avatar thumb display. Guests see the username with profile-link. Only registered users see Avatar thumbs. Is this a "feature-bug" ?! It seems it does not depend on any forum security parameter setting, nor any module setting.

If this contextual display is the intended way...
it should also hide the username and link completely. Because this information is already displayed by the respective parameter! Now, you will get it twice!

I remember, the previous 3rdparty LatestModule for Kunena 1.5/6 did not make any difference in usergroups. It always showed the CB Avatar.

Any clue?

The display issue is solved, more or less. The avatar image display depends on CB access levels.
So, check your access levels for the field (obvious)... and also for the containing portrait Tab!

But there is still room for a little improvement in the Kunena module:

In general, If the avatar image is hidden, it should also hide the profile-link and username.

Not sure, if this should depend on Kunena's "security settings, i.e. allow guests to see user lists; allow guests to see user profiles

As long as CB integration is used, it should respect CB access restrictions... and simply hide the whole Avatar/link output.

Just my humble opinion.
