Is it possible that the module reads out the contact profile information from the component contacts (or actually from users)? I've linked my users to the contacts so that people can update there contactinfo by itself in the frontend of the website. I would like to display fields of that profile information in the module (or component) trombinoscope. Is this possible? Do i have to read out different database queries in the helper.php? I hope you could help me out that people can edit there own contactinformation!

the module takes all contact information but there is no way to edit the contact information form the frontend at this point. Users and contacts are 2 different things in Joomla! and only users can actually change their own profile. I will investigate a way to add more fields to the user profiles in order to update the associated contact, whenever a contact and a user are linked together. But, sorry, there is no way to do this through the module yet.
Thanks for the quick response!
I've solved my problem (sort off) by showing only a picture and the name in the module. when you click on the name you get the contactsinformation including the profiles content.
I've only one question: is it easy to show the contact information in a lightbox when you click on the name?
I have tried it myself and got to the same result, but this is expected as the link to the contact is not only a link to the contact itself but to the whole framework (templates and modules included). It is not possible to use the link as it is. I am investigating how this can be modified.
