Hi there,

I had seen that nice feature
Joomla Contacts Component Integration
If user is linked to contact you will see a direct link to contact page on User Profile Page.

and indeed it works
- with the Contacts which were previously manually created
- and also for the newly Registered Users since I enabled the plugin "Users - Contact Creator"

But what about the pre-existing Users ? How can I get them available as well in the Contacts ?

Any solution would do:
- from the interface
- a hack of the plugin
- ...

(I apologize: I am aware that as such this is more a Joomla issue than an EasyProfile issue. But the question arises bc I want to take advantage of that EasyProfile feature... but I already have 500 Users :D )

the best way is to use an SQL query like this
INSERT INTO prefix_contact_details(user_id,name,alias,catid,published,access,language,params,metakey,metadesc,metadata) SELECT id,name,username,11,1,1,"*","","","","" FROM prefix_users WHERE NOT IN (SELECT user_id FROM prefix_contact_details)

This query should avoid duplicates.

- You need to replace "prefix" with your Joomla prefix ID
- Before launch this query you could check if the category ID is 11 (like my query)

That's excellent !
I have just tested and it works fine.

FYI, somebody else pointed this extension to me :
It even synchronises :)
(it goes beyond what I needed here but it is good to know :) )

Txs again for your excellent support!
