bp_displayed_user_username or another?

    I’d like to use the function, “bp_displayed_user_username” not only member-header.php but also on member-loop.php, but this function so far only works on member-header.php

    If you know how to make this work, please advise.

    If there’s another function that does the same, please let me know.

    I’m looking at bp global reference, but have no idea how I can customize the example code, so that this function works.

    I’m trying to use this function on the following of member-loop.php

    <div class="item-avatar"><br /><img src="http://img.tweetimag.es/i/<?php bp_displayed_user_username() ?>_b" /></a><br /></div>

    You are right, It will work on members page only, as it uses $bp->displayed_user which is set for member pages only.

    You can accomplish the same by using function

    “bp_core_get_username” on any of the pages. take a look at the function definition.

    Thanks for the suggestion, however “bp_core_get_username” doesn’t yet return (display) anything. I wonder if there’s anything changed from version 1.2

    I think this “bp_core_get_username” is used only for one member. This doesn’t work on members-loop.php where it should list member names and avatars on the Members Directory.

    The function should be something equivalent to

    <?php bp_member_name() ?>

    But instead of member nickname it should return login ids of members.

    I just found the following custom function, but I wonder why this function is not built in by default.

    Does anyone know how I can modify this code into a new function, rather than overwriting bp_member_name? I’ve tried add_function instead, but didn’t work. Preferably I’d like to create a new function called bp_member_username.

    function my_member_username() {

    global $members_template;

    return $members_template->member->user_login;

    }

    add_filter('bp_member_name','my_member_username');

    If using bp_core_get_username, make sure you do the following:

    - echo the result. Unlike bp_displayed_user_username(), it does not echo automatically. Ie

    <?php echo bp_core_get_username( $user_id ); ?>

    - Feed it $user_id as an argument. If you don’t, the argument will return false.

    See bp-core.php, around line 1005, for the definition of the function, as Brajesh suggested.

    To my understanding and testing experience, the following doesn’t return list of usernames of members on members-loop.php

    <?php echo bp_core_get_username( $user_id ); ?>
