Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Question How do i get the post author id?

Hi guys,

i'm using this code to show JomSocial custom fields under the Kunena avatar in the forum:
$authorid = $this->profile->userid;
$username = $this->profile->username;
$jspath = JPATH_BASE.DS.'components'.DS.'com_community';
$cuser =& CFactory::getUser($authorid);
$bike = $cuser->getInfo('FIELD_MODEL');
echo "Bike: $bike";

i have this in /components/com_kunena/template/mytemplate/layouts/user/profile/default.php

So in kunena under the avatar on each post i see the "Bike:" label but the data on all posts is from the logged in user, not the user who wrote the post. Any idea how can i get the current author and to show the custom field for him?

Using JomSocial 4.x, Kunena 4.0.7

I you want to show JomSocial custom fields under Kunenas user avatar, here's the code:
//get important Joomla data and connections
$authorid = $this->profile->userid;
$username = $this->profile->username;
$jspath = JPATH_BASE.DS.'components'.DS.'com_community';
$buser =& CFactory::getUser($authorid);
$baze = $buser->getInfo('FIELD_yourfield');
if ($baze) {
