Looking to get current user information and some fields from user profile.

Ok, I am hoping someone can help me here real quick.

I want to tie some things into xroster and to do so I need the logged in user name and I need to read in some fields from the user profile. Then I will be done with what I am doing with this for now and can start on my next project.

I haven't had to do this before so I am unsure how to accomplish this task.

I am using 2.4.5 xoops and I do NOT have the profile module installed so I am just using the core profile.

Thanks!

Rodney

Thanks, that gets me the information I need from the user database. However I need to know who the logged in user is. All information I will be pulling from the database will be dependent on the person who is logged in.

I am guessing this is a simple matter but was not able to find it in a search.

Re: Looking to get current user information and some fields from user profile.

yea you got to use the $xoopsUser variable.

if that variable is an object then the user is logged in.

Thank you, that gives me enough to go on so I can hopefully pull up everything I need.

If I have further issues with it I will mention them here otherwise I will likely mention when I have it done.

Re: Looking to get current user information and some fields from user profile.

Ok for some reason this is harder then I thought.. Although I am sure once I see how it is done it will be alot easier...


global $xoopsUser
    if (
is_object($xoopsUser)) {
       echo 
"Logged in";
       echo 
$xoopsUser->email;
    }



If I do this it will echo the "Logged in" when I am logged in but that is as far as I get?

The stuff you guys have pointed out don't seem as clear as they could be?

Guess I will have to poke through some code and see if I can find it somewhere.

There was some information in there I CAN use with this too.. But I want to pull up the current logged in users name, uname, and probably email.

I am missing something...

echo $xoopsUser->email;


should be:
echo $xoopsUser->getVar('name') . '<br />';
echo 
$xoopsUser->getVar('uname') . '<br />';
echo 
$xoopsUser->getVar('email') . '<br />';

Re: Looking to get current user information and some fields from user profile.

Cool, that worked!
Thanks zyspec.

That will do all I wanted to do with the user side.


Now I need to get an array of all the users that are members of a couple of groups for the admin side.

But I think the links that were listed above will head me in the right direction for those.

Thinking it would be as simple as a query.

Then I also want to be able to add someone to a group or take them out of the group as well but I think I can get this stuff from the "groups" module.

Re: Looking to get current user information and some fields from user profile.

I am curious about one thing though as I see it in other places for other variables too.

With the line....

global $xoopuser;


What is this actually doing? Is there a $GLOBALS[xoopsuser] variable and by declaring it like this above it allows me to use it as a normal variable?

Just trying to understand the reason as the books I have read didn't really touch on this usage.

Thanks!
