You need to pass the userId agument like the example in the URL

eg:
$user = JFactory::getUser(99);

where 99 is your userID

really do not misunderstand me and i already apologized if that i will say is offending you

i imagine that this line
<?php $user = JFactory::getUser($comment->userID); ?>
and this
<?php echo $user->username; ?>

was the answer of the very beginning of the forum.
Why didn`t you state that?i asked it because with too many responses you lost more time.
so two things i can imagine
1. it is my fault that from beginning i didn`t clear what i ask for
2. it is a policy of the administrators to search a little by themselves to understand how joomla,k2,php and tables are combining

:)

i repeat do not misunderstand me
really thank you anyway

best regards

You have to understand that we are here to help a really large number of people here every day.

I asked the var_dump because it is quite frankly impossible to remember what each object in K2 contains. I also do not want to give any wrong answers.

I can assist you in custom parts of your projects but your (by your I mean the user's) participation is needed. It is impossible to search the DB or perform template overrides for each single request.

This is the difference between getting help over a free forum and hiring a developer.

I personally try to help each member of the forum and avoid the "Go hire a developer" answers but users have to keep in their mind that you are not receiving help over a free product and you (again replace you with the user) have not hired a dev for their custom project.

I Hope I did not bore you with my rant.

Thanks George I really appreciate this.

Thank you for the request but at this point it would be unprofessional of me to offer commercial services from this forum.
However I can refer you to ideasencoded.gr/ which I can personally guarantee that she knows her way around K2. Trust me on this one :)

Nice that you found the solution (and a funny conversation :lol: ).

To me however it is not yet clear what to do to get this result. Can someone describe to me which lines in which file I have to alter?
