Use Vanilla for external profiles

edited August 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi! I want to show the users of one group on an external page in a different way - as an book :-) That means two profiles per page and a navigation to move forewards and backwards. How can I create a template for that and how can I call this template on an external page? Thanks for any advice!

    Okay - "all" I need is a funktion which lists the real name and the predefined attributes and can be called with a user-id like this:


    But I cant't figure out how to solve this. I think for an experienced programmer this is no problem at all, but for me....

    Thanks for your help!

    If you mean the typical user info, then use the UserManager::GetUserById() function and retrieve the data from the User object. If you're referring to the predefined attributes extension, then it appears the extension adds a colum in the LUM_User table called PredefinedAttributes, which contains a serialized array. You could probably use delegates to get this along with the normal user info when GetUserById is called.
  • If you're referring to the predefined attributes extension
    Yes, I do - I think I'm able to list the typical user info, but not that kind of array...
  • All you have to do is retrieve the string, send it through unserialize(), then loop through it displaying each item.
  • Thank you again - I had a look on the predifined attributes extension and managed to return some values:

    $data = unserialize($row_Recordset1['PredefinedAttributes']); unserialize($data);
    Array ( [0] => Array ( [Label] => Phone-Nr. [Value] => 030 ) [1] => Array ( [Label] => T-Shirt-Size [Value] => M ) )

    there seems to be an array inside the array :-(
  • You only need to call unserialize once, and to loop through the info is as simple as:
    for($i = 0; $i < count($data); $i++)
    	echo($data[$i]['Label'].': '.$data[$i]['Value']);
  • Ahhh! Thanks a lot, that's it!

    I'll publish the result when I'm done!
  • Good luck with that idea!
