I found a code snippet that works for ’calling profile info’ but …

  • My site is taking shape very nicely and I want to thank all here who have made comments and helped along the way.

    I am using the bp sliding login and it is working great. Now I need to add some info into it.

    My site is about weight loss, so I’ve created a new field group with:

    Field 1 – Start Date
    Field 2 – Start Weight
    Field 3 – Week 1 Date
    Field 4 – Week 1 Weight

    And I want to call those fields info to show on the slider.

    I have a basic understanding here as the sliding panel ‘calls’ the username, and I can see the code. (edit – i can see the code, but don’t understand)

    What I basically want to know is where do I find the info to call the additional fieds.

    Thanks in advance

    Or maybe a simple small little script.

    I Found this (which works, but shows user nr 1’s start date. So I think it is the first row that needs to be changed.



    But I want the current logged in user’s info to show. Can someone help please?

    It’s listed in the template tags section of the documentation on here. That should be the first place you look for bp functions.

    Thanks Roger

    But actually I don’t have a clue what you’re saying.

    The code I pasted here, works, but it pulls member nr 1’s info and I want it to pull the logged in user’s start date etc.

    Anyways, thank you for trying.

    I’ve given you the function you need to get the current logged in user’s ID – you should use this in your call to bp_has_profile to initialise your profile loop for the correct user.

    This is what you asked for in your help request.

    The rest is fairly simple PHP programming
