BP XProfile Shortcode


Adds Shortcode for BuddyPress XProfile data

For quick reference, here is a list of example shortcodes:

Reference field by ID in case name changes:
[xprofile field=12]

Output city using default user detection (currently displayed BP profile, fallback to author of current page/post, fallback to currently logged in user):
[xprofile field=”City”]

Output city for a specific user by ID or username:
[xprofile field=”City” user=20]
[xprofile field=”City” user=”someusername”]

Override the default user detection by specifying method:
Output city for the currently logged in user (blank if no user is logged in):
[xprofile field=”City” user=current]

Output city for the author of the current page/post being viewed:
[xprofile field=”City” user=author]

Output city for the currently displayed BuddyPress profile:
[xprofile field=”City” user=displayed]
