WP-Forum and BuddyPress

    I have decided to use the WP-Forum Plugin as a site-wide forum for the site because I have had zero luck with integrating BBPress.

    All is going well, I just need to know how to link to a user’s BuddyPress profile using their ID# and not their BuddyPress username. WP-Forum uses ID#’s when referring to all users, and these ID#s are the same as the BuddyPress users, I just need to know how to hyperlink using only the ID and not the username….make sense?

    THANKS!

    By the way, just so you know what I am trying to do, there is a function within WP-Forums that calls a profile link using the variable $link:

    $link = "<a hre f='".$this->base_url."profile&amp;id=$user_id'
    title='".__("View profile", "wpforum")."'>$user</a>";

    I need to be able to change the content after the \”href\” in the $link variable so that the $user_id forwards to a the equivalent BuddyPress profile.

    Okay I’m officially retarded and have been up way too long…

    all I had to do was replace the link using the $user variable they already provided…I didn’t need an ID# after all…

    For what it’s worth though if anyone would like to know, I now have WP-Forum working very smoothly along with BuddyPress :-) (again…not within group forums, only as a site wide forum).
