How to retrieve usermeta data on members page ?

  • Profile photo of valuser


    I have added a signup field like this:

    /* Add sign-up field to BuddyPress sign-up array */

    function newbp_custom_user_signup_field( $usermeta ) {
    $usermeta = $_POST;
    return $usermeta;
    add_filter( 'bp_signup_usermeta', 'newbp_custom_user_signup_field' );

    /* Add field_name from sign-up to usermeta on activation */

    function newbp_user_activate_field( $signup ) {
    update_usermeta( $signup, 'newfield', $signup );
    return $signup;
    add_filter( 'bp_core_activate_account', 'newbp_user_activate_field' );

    Have tried the following function

    function getnewfield() {
    $data = get_user_meta($user_id, $newfield);
    if ( $data )
    echo "<span>New Field Label: $data </span>";
    add_action( 'bp_directory_members_item', 'getnewfield' );

    But it has not retrieved the data. ?
    <hr class=”bbcode_rule” />
    > the data is in the wp_usermeta database for each user_id

    Any input appreciated.

    (why usermeta ? Am trying out multi-networks and profile data appears to be network specific whereas usermeta data attaches to user across entire installation. ie. a user can have different profile info in different networks but his/her usermeta data is universal. I would like some user info to be universal! )

    wp 3.4.1,bp 1.6.1, multi-site, bp-multi-networks, networks+
