Displaying custom profile fields using Mingle (2 posts)

    Okay, so I am using the Mingle plugin to add some networking functionality for a website I am creating for a client. I am having Mingle handle displaying user profiles and friends, but WordPress to actually register users and put in fields.

    Mingle has the ability to add custom fields (ex: Twitter, Facebook, etc). However, there is now way to display these custom fields individually. So I have added my own custom fields to WordPress using the functions.php file:

    /* Add Profile Fields */
    function add_new_contactmethods($methods){
    	$methods['twitter'] = 'Twitter';
    	return $methods;

    and am displaying them within one of the Mingle templates (mingle/classes/views/mngl-profiles/profile.php).

    Here is the code I am using to display them:

    <?php if ( get_the_author_meta( 'twitter' ) ) { ?>
    	<a href="http://twitter.com/<?php the_author_meta( 'twitter' ); ?>" title="Follow @<?php the_author_meta( 'twitter' ); ?> on Twitter">
    		<div class="tile bg-color-twitter icon">
    			<div class="tile-content">
    				<img src="<?php echo THEME_DIR; ?>/images/icons/twitter.png" alt="Twitter" class="socialIcon" />
    			<div class="brand">
    				<span class="name">@<?php the_author_meta( 'twitter' ); ?></span>
    		</div><!-- .tile -->
    <?php } ?>

    Now whenever I go to a profile page that is generated by mingle, (http://website.com/admin or http://website.com/dylan), whoever is currently logged in at the moment will have their custom fields shown, not to the user whose profile is being shown.

    Does that make sense? I can provide more code or elaborate if need be. I would really, really appreciate any and all help I can receive on this, the project is really time-sensitive.

    I had a similar challenge.
    Ended up writing the code/hack to query the database directly myself.
