I have the permission "access user profiles" set on a site for all roles which means that every time I use ImageCache Profiles, the image will automatically link to the users page.

However, I have a list of articles on my site (which I display using Views) and besides these I display a picture of the author of the article. I've set the node titles to link to the articles, but the image always links to the user page. On the site I was creating it was requested that the user picture also could link to the node.

I got around this by putting the imagecache_profiles_preprocess_user_picture() function into my own template.php but I had to duplicate about 30 lines of code from that function to get the desired effect (basically remove lines 73-79 in the module). The end result is that my function returns just the theme_imagecache result and not the linked result, with or without the "access user profiles" permission set. However, my admin theme is different to my site theme so I can't preview the results properly in Views, but it does appear to work fine on the front-end.

I also had to copy the user-picture.tpl.php file in to my theme folder and remove the because Views was wrapping my new tag around the and making the page invalid.

Therefore I was requesting if it could be possible in the ImageCache profiles settings to set whether the image should link to the user profile page or not thus allowing it to be linked to wherever one likes using Views.

The above penultimate paragraph should read -

I also had to copy the user-picture.tpl.php file in to my theme folder and remove the <div class="picture"> because Views was wrapping my new <a href="node/[nid]"> tag around the <div class="picture"> and making the page invalid.

I have the same issue. I've set the user image field to be output as a link in my view, but the path is being discarded for the user/UID path instead.

having same problem than #2. I need to link the image's profile to a different url but it is not changing when I configure the path within the view.

I need the same - just want to use profile picture without linking to profile picture...

Using view I can get a picture but this already goes with a link to such profile and I want to make a link to a node that also displayes such picture as a thumbnail...

So what I need is using profile picture in thumbnail and previe node mode with proper linking to a node

Maybe some changes in the file profile.module will help??

Or in some template?
