Question Kunena and CBox Integration

Hello.

We are running Kunena (actually testing the 2.0 version, but the question should relate to 1.7 as well) on Joomla 2.5

Everything is working fine but I have a question regarding Profile and Avatar URL's for each user.

We use a Chat System called CBox (www.cbox.ws). They integrate with Joomla, and that is working fine. They also offer an extended integration to pick up a users Avatar and Profile. In order to integrate I need to add this code:

&amp;pic=<?=urlencode($avatar_url)?>&amp;lnk=<?=urlencode($profile_url)?>&amp;ekey=<?=md5("xxxxxxxxxxx"."\t".$avatar_url."\t".$profile_url)?>

I need to replace the variables $avatar_url and $profile_url with the actual URL that would call the respective avatar and profile for a user.

Help?

Thanks

Not really sure why this was moved to User-written hacks, has Kunena isn't being hacked/modified.

Perhaps I wasn't clear enough - All I was asking is how to access (in a read-only fashion) the Profile and Avatar areas of Kunena for use in another application. The code example is part of the CBox (third party app) and not code inserted into Kunena. I am just looking for the URL that would allow me to access a user avatar / profile.

I would think this would fall under Kunena support.

Thanks

We have a different opinion.

We don't actually have a category where developers can discuss ideas or problems they may be having with extending Kunena in ways that the product does not provide "out of the box". The support category is for obtaining assistance with things that are "broken" with Kunena - and we get many requests from people who imply Kunena is broken when, in fact, their implementation of Joomla is broken! A lot of people do not take the time to read the category descriptions on the Index page which defines how each category should be used. A lot of our time is spent trying to properly organise questions that people ask in better ways so as to help other people who have similar problems.

As I mentioned, we do not have a general category for "developers discussions"; perhaps we should have one? :unsure:
