Support » Plugin: User Registration Aide » Get User data In a Page

  • Hi,
    I would like to show some of the information from extra fields of my users in pages. Is there a ready made way you planned? if not, where is this data in the db so I can get it from there using php on a case by page basis.
    Thanks

    Hi, it is stored in the usermeta table and uses the field key you used when setting up the new field as the key. To access that data all you have to do is use the
    $field = get_user_meta($user_id, $key, $single);
    wordpress hook to retrieve the data.
    $key = meta key you used when you created the field, should be like address_1 or area_code or phone_number or similar. The table for the fields is ura_fields and the meta_key field should correlate with the meta key for the usermeta table.
    Parameters
    $user_id
    (integer) (required) The ID of the user whose data should be retrieved.
    Default: None
    $key
    (string) (optional) The meta_key in the wp_usermeta table for the meta_value to be returned. If left empty, will return all user_meta fields for the given user.
    Default: (empty string)
    $single
    (boolean) (optional) If true return value of meta data field, if false return an array. This parameter has no effect if $key is left blank.
    Default: false

    There are some actions to display the fields but only for the registration form and profile but I could possible change that in a future update and add some hooks to display fields on other pages. There is also a database class in the /helpers directory ura-fields-database.php that handles all the ura_fields table operations and inserts/updates/selects and other queries. For the pre existing actions for the reg form separated by the field input type

    
    $html = new URA_HTML();
    add_action( 'rf_textbox', array( &$html, 'reg_form_text' ), 10, 4 );
    add_action( 'rf_textarea', array( &$html, 'reg_form_textarea' ), 10, 4 );
    add_action( 'rf_radio', array( &$html, 'reg_form_radio' ), 10, 4 );
    add_action( 'rf_select', array( &$html, 'reg_form_select' ), 10, 4 );
    add_action( 'rf_checkbox', array( &$html, 'reg_form_checkbox' ), 10, 4 );
    add_action( 'rf_datebox', array( &$html, 'reg_form_datepicker' ), 10, 4 );
    add_action( 'rf_multiselect', array( &$html, 'reg_form_multi_select' ), 10, 4 );
    add_action( 'rf_number', array( &$html, 'reg_form_number' ), 10, 4 );
    add_action( 'rf_url', array( &$html, 'reg_form_url' ), 10, 4 );
    

    and the 4 parameters are

    * @params string $label for input item label, string $name for input item name
    * @params string $id for input item id, string $value for input item value

    For the Profile page it is the following actions

    add_action( 'profile_textbox', array( &$html, 'profile_textbox' ), 10, 5 );
    add_action( 'profile_textarea', array( &$html, 'profile_textarea' ), 10, 5 );
    add_action( 'profile_radio', array( &$html, 'profile_radio' ), 10, 5 );
    add_action( 'profile_select', array( &$html, 'profile_select' ), 10, 5 );
    add_action( 'profile_checkbox', array( &$html, 'profile_checkbox' ), 10, 5 );
    add_action( 'profile_datebox', array( &$html, 'profile_datepicker' ), 10, 5 );
    add_action( 'profile_multiselect', array( &$html, 'profile_multi_select' ), 10, 5 );
    add_action( 'profile_number', array( &$html, 'user_profile_number' ), 10, 5 );
    add_action( 'profile_url', array( &$html, 'profile_url' ), 10, 5 );
    unset( $html );

    For the profile fields the parameters are

    * @params OBJECT $user, string $label for input item label, string $name for input item name
     * @params string $id for input item id, string $value for input item value

    The only potential problem I can think of for using these is that they are already formatted and styled for the standard WordPress registration form and profile forms

    to use the profile field you would use this format and use whatever field input that the field is after profile_:
    do_action( 'profile_textbox', $user, $label, $name, $id, $value );

    For the registration form fields you would use the input type after the rf_ and use this format:

    
    do_action( 'rf_textbox', $label, $name, $id, $value );
