User meta shortcodes
Urgent feature request - data from URL membername (2 posts)

    Hi Richard
    I need very similar functionality to your UserMetaShortcodes plugin.
    Unless you can do this for me rapidly... I will see if my programmer can either modify your plugin or make something similar.

    I want to send people to my site using this format
    http://www.mydomain.com/pagename/membername OR http://www.mydomain.com/pagename/?membername
    and then have your plugin display
    http://www.mydomain.com/pagename
    calling the meta data of the membername included in the URL.

    The potential for this is enormous.
    Each page can then be customized with all the appropriate data of each member just by them adding their username to the end of the URL.
    For instance each member could have a field for their clickbankID and then send visitors to the page and have their own clickbank affiliate link automatically inserted by the shortcodes!
    (Obviously I would not display private information using the shortcodes).

    Is there any chance you would do this

      soon
    ?
    Or that you could advise or help if I am paying a developer to do this?
    Any comments on how difficult you would think it would be?

    Thanks in advance - Dan V

    You need to find a way to rewrite urls to include something like http://mysite.com/mypage/firstvariable/value1/secondvariable/value2/ and this is equivalent to http://mysite.com/mypage/?firstvariable=value1&secondvariable=value2

    The rest is quite easy, I would do it quickly. Only if these support forums had a way to notify me by email when a new support request arrives. Maybe they do and I do not know how to activate it...
