My b2evolution Version: Not Entered

i d like to display logged in users name near the profile in the users tool widget; just like in the evotoolbar, seems easy but i just couldnt figure out how to..

user tools widg line:

		user_profile_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end'], $this->disp_params[ 'user_profile_link' ] );

evotoolbar line:

			user_profile_link( '<li>', '</li>', T_('User profile').' (%s)' );

thank you in advance

user_profile_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end'], $current_User->get('preferredname') );

thanks sam2kb, but unfortunately this didn't work

You must also add global $current_User; in this file

The whole thing will look like

global $current_User;
user_profile_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end'], $current_User->get('preferredname') );

oops sorry (:.. it worked out great, it is now displaying logged in user name instead of 'Profile' link, i can go on with this , i dont wanna be a bugger but, how can i make it display Profile (admin) .. i ve tried to do it on my own, but i just mix syntaxes up.. thank you in advance ..cheers ;)

and btw, most important of all, when you are not logged in it causes

Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in /home/prosoftwar/domains/ on line 150

as you are not logged in yet;

we need to add somewhere if logged in i suppose

Here's something you might want to try in your inc/widgets/widgets/_user_tools.widget.php file at the appropriate place for it:

		echo $this->disp_params['list_start'];
		user_login_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end']."\n", $this->disp_params[ 'user_login_link' ] );
		user_register_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end']."\n", $this->disp_params[ 'user_register_link' ] );
		user_admin_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end']."\n", $this->disp_params[ 'user_admin_link' ] );
		$tilqicoms_thing = $this->disp_params[ 'user_profile_link' ].' (%s)';
		user_profile_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end']."\n", $tilqicoms_thing );
		user_subs_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end']."\n", $this->disp_params[ 'user_subs_link' ] );
		user_logout_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end']."\n", $this->disp_params[ 'user_logout_link' ] );
		echo $this->disp_params['list_end']."\n";

You may notice there is a shiny new variable in there called "tilqicoms_thing"? What I am trying to do with it is make it send %s (actually (%s) ) to the user_profile_link function so that the function can do like it did for the evobar thing. It might actually work!

EDIT: the stupid php button causes the page to stretch beyond it's natural limits! GRRR!!!

Try this. You'll get Profile (admin) if you are logged in and nothing if not logged in.

user_profile_link( $this->disp_params['item_start'], $this->disp_params['item_end'], $this->disp_params[ 'user_profile_link' ].' (%s)' );

no you are not : P
Thank you guys both, i ve tried sam2kb's first as it seemed less complicated : P , and it worked very well, thanks to Edb too for tilqicom's thing ;)

10 May 25, 2008 17:42

Yeah that's probably even cooler. Simpler is cooler yah? For some reason I wasn't sure if it would take that way though, so I made up a new variable to hold both bits. Oh and also I wanted to name a variable after tilqicom :)

11 May 25, 2008 17:43

:'( maybe i ll try that later on, just to have a variable called after me :D but my mind is currently f'ed up right now, so i ve tried the simple looking one : P long=complicated, yah? no maybe it's not : P
ty very much really (:, it looks cool now,

12 May 25, 2008 18:09

tilqicom they are the same thing. sam2kb put on one line what I did with a variable on a new line. sam2kb's is actually a bit better because "simpler is cooler" to quote myself ;)

i know i know (:, you just copied the whole block not to allow any typo or sth, just seemed long, they r almost same, i'm aware of that, i was just jking
