    Hia.

    I’d like to announce my Usermeta plug-in, which provides an API for other plug-ins and themes to store meta information against users. It is beta.

    This plug-in is based on the postmeta facilities of WP 1.5 and uses a similar table format and set of API routines. According to the Wiki change notes a user meta feature will be part of WP 1.6, however I have not seen this so I don’t know if my plug-in is entirely compatible. (Any help on this would be great – I’d rather not call this plug-in stable until I know I’ve got that right.)

    Basically, the purpose of this plug-in is to associate name/value pairs against user ids and be able to retrieve them later.

    Hope someone finds this useful.

    James

    I don’t know how far away 1.6 is … ahhh..

    I’m going to look at this tomorrow.

    could you explain or give examples of the particular applications of this plugin?

    (sortof repeat from the other thread about Userextra)

    How about:

    <p>This post written by <?php the_author(); ?> who lives at <?php $usermeta = new Usermeta(); echo $usermeta->get(get_the_author_ID(), "address", true); ?></p>

    I hope this works in 2.0 because I need the features of USERMETA and USEREXTRA…

    I just tried to install this in 2.0. When I activated it I got this error.

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_usermeta() (previously declared in /home/content/s/h/u/shunshifu/html/vsblog/wp-includes/functions.php:2161) in /home/content/s/h/u/shunshifu/html/vsblog/wp-content/plugins/usermeta.php on line 119

    Bummed, I can’t get into anything the whole site has crashed.

    I deleted the plugin and reuploaded the site. Now it says

    It doesn’t look like you’ve installed WP yet. Try running install.php.

    Any help here. What can I do to get my site back up and running.

    Thanks

    On his website, he says he has not updated the plugin yet for 2.0 🙂

    Oops, I looked around but somehow missed that. Thanks. I am certainly looking forward to it being updated.

    Any other way of allowing for multiple users on a blog and give them each a category.

    Thanks

    Can someone please explain how I would actualy go about displaying my extra fields in an authors.php template file, I just can’t for the life of me figure it out, and yes I’ve checked the documentation that came with it and had a look at the info here http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/Usermeta, it might just be me, but it doesn’t seem to be explained very well.
    Can anyone help me?

    Hey moshmonkey, additionally use the plugin Userextra to achieve that! Works great!

    I have Userextra installed, what I’m saying is that I don’t know what code I have to put into the author.php template to get my extra field values to show

    They are displayed under “Your Extended Profile”, a new tab besides “Your Profile”. Or do you want to move fields from there to the profile main page? That would be interesting for me, too.

    You still don’t seem to be getting what I’m asking, I know about the extended profile tab, but thats the ADMIN section.
    I need to know how to show the extra information in my author.php template, the frontend of my site.
    I have it on my site so that when you click on the linked author name of a post, it goes to a page that has their information on it, the author page, using the author.php template.
    I know that putting for instance

    <?php echo $curauth->user_url; ?> shows the users website, I have this working.

    But what do I need to show fields from userextra\meta???

    Sorry, it was a long day… 🙂

    From the usermeta page:
    This post written by <?php the_author(); ?> who lives at
    <?php $usermeta = new Usermeta(); echo $usermeta->get(get_the_author_ID(), "address", true); ?>

    …in case your field is called “address”.

    That doesn’t seem to work for me.
    I’ve just noticed something else thouh as I tried to log into admin on another comp.
    I get this error when I load wp-login.php

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /mounted-storage/home3/xxxxxx/xxxxxxx/xxxxx/wp-content/plugins/userextra2.php:2) in /mounted-storage/home3/xxxxxx/xxxxxxx/xxxxx/wp-login.php on line 9

    then when i enter login details admin area doesn’t load and i get this

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /mounted-storage/home3/xxxxxx/xxxxxxx/xxxxx/wp-content/plugins/userextra2.php:2) in /mounted-storage/home3/xxxxxx/xxxxxxx/xxxxx/wp-login.php on line 9

    what is causing this? could it be clashing with another plugin? does anyone know of any plugins that do clash?

    this sucks ‘cos I could really do with this,
    anyway

    thanks for the help so far
