bp_the_member() in admin-ajax

  • Darren Cooney


    When loading a list of users via admin-ajax.php I am not able to access bp_the_member() because it is no longer in the the member loop.

    Is there anyway to pass the current user ID to bp_the_member() or is there an alternative function I can use to set up member data outside of the loop?

    Why is it no longer in the loop?

    How are you gathering your list of users?
    Have you tried, in your ajax function, using BP_User_Query ? You can then use a loop and bp_the_member() will work.

    Otherwise, you can use this is get each separate piece of a user’s profile data:
    xprofile_get_field_data( $field, $user_id = 0, $multi_format = 'array' )

    To get all the profile data at once, if you have the email address you could use bp_xprofile_personal_data_exporter( $email_address )

    Or if you only have the user_id, you could use: BP_XProfile_ProfileData::get_all_for_user( $user_id )

    Thanks for the reply.
    They are not in the loop because I’m using a plugin, Ajax Load More to render users and it creates it’s own loop using the WP_User_Query not buddypress methods.

    Appreciate the direction to the BP_XProfile_ProfileData method. I’ll check this out.
