Cimy User Extra Fields
Suggestion: cimy_uef_data => usermeta (4 posts)

    your plugin seems popular... just a suggestion to enable your plugin data to integrate better with other plugins:

    The structure of cimy_uef_data seems to be pretty much a replica of usermeta.

    Why not use usermeta? This would enable other plugins that can find/deal with usermeta to see cimy data too.

    You'd have to change fieldid to be more meaningful - maybe use the cimy field name as the wp meta key ?


    (i like to work with wordpress as much as possible rather than creating extra tables - it usually pays off)

    I know, but this is a big change for v3.0.0 of the plug-in

    I'm about to install the plugin on multisite but need a way to pull this extra user info/fields in other places on the site.

    How can this be done?

    Can I use standard `global $current_user;

    and than use field Id to fetch data? If yes, where do I get field ID?

    Looking forward to v3.0 but in the meantime is there a way to pull this data?

    Thanks for the great plugin. :)

    Does anyone knows if it's possible and how to get the extra fields in other places on the site?
