Display email address.

edited September 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm using $this->Context->Session->User->Name on certain texts of my forum which works fine. $this->Context->Session->User->Email on the other hand doesn't work. Nothing is displayed. The email address is public and exists. Thanks for your help.


  • Did you see this discussion?
  • Yes I did and I check the check box under the email address in the account. It's my test user and I see the address in the account page. The code I'm using is on a contact form. I can display the username who's logged in and would like to do the same for the email address with. $this->Context->Session->User->Email ??? Any idea? Thanks
  • If you look at the MembersPage add-on, you'll see how he gets the email address. What file are you changing?
  • I've just checked but the problem is that he uses his own sql queries instead of using vanilla's api. I'm sure that the $context->session->user->Email should work :-( Thanks for your help though... If more ideas ;-)
  • I use an extension I made to display user name and email in the Panel:
    if (in_array($Context->SelfUrl, array("index.php", "account.php", "categories.php", "comments.php", "post.php", "search.php", "settings.php"))) { function GetPanelLinkList(&$Context) { if ($Context->Session->UserID > 0) { if (!@$UserManager) $UserManager = $Context->ObjectFactory->NewContextObject($Context, "UserManager"); $AccountUserID = ForceIncomingInt("u", $Context->Session->UserID); if (!@$AccountUser) { $AccountUser = $UserManager->GetUserById($AccountUserID); $DispFName = $AccountUser->FirstName; $DispLName = $AccountUser->LastName; $DispName = $AccountUser->Name." ".$DispFName . " " . $DispLName . " ".$AccountUser->Email; } } else { $DispName = " "; } $PanelLinkList = ""; $PanelLinkList .= "<p>Hi ".$DispName."</p>"; return $PanelLinkList; } $Panel->AddString(GetPanelLinkList($Context),13); }
  • thanks for your help but i can't seem to get it to work correctly (not your addon, mine ;-) I wonder why the Name displays correctly though?
  • OK I made a test, in menu.php (theme vanilla) I changed the code to display the email address instead of the name (just as a test). It doesn't display the address either? See below, 4th line... Shouldn't it work? I checked your code and it seems to do the exact same thing as mine... echo '<div id="Session">'; if ($this->Context->Session->UserID > 0) { echo str_replace('//1', $this->Context->Session->User->Email, $this->Context->GetDefinition('SignedInAsX')).' (<a href="'.$this->Context->Configuration['SIGNOUT_URL'].'">'.$this->Context->GetDefinition('SignOut').'</a>)'; } else { echo $this->Context->GetDefinition('NotSignedIn').' (<a href="'.AppendUrlParameters($this->Context->Configuration['SIGNIN_URL'], 'ReturnUrl='.GetRequestUri()).'">'.$this->Context->GetDefinition('SignIn').'</a>)'; } echo '</div>'; $this->CallDelegate('PreHeadRender'); echo '<div id="Header"> <a name="pgtop"></a> <h1> '.$this->Context->Configuration['BANNER_TITLE'].' </h1> <ul>'; while (list($Key, $Tab) = each($this->Tabs)) { echo '<li'.$this->TabClass($this->CurrentTab, $Tab['Value']).'><a href="'.$Tab['Url'].'" '.$Tab['Attributes'].'>'.$Tab['Text'].'</a></li>'; } echo '</ul> </div>'; $this->CallDelegate('PreBodyRender'); echo '<div id="Body">';

    It appears to me that there is no Email value in the Session->User object...? The Session->User object is populated by $UserManager->GetSessionDataById($this->UserID); and that function is:
    function GetSessionDataById($UserID) { $s = $this->Context->ObjectFactory->NewContextObject($this->Context, 'SqlBuilder'); $s->SetMainTable('User', 'u'); $s->AddJoin('Role', 'r', 'RoleID', 'u', 'RoleID', 'left join'); $s->AddJoin('Style', 's', 'StyleID', 'u', 'StyleID', 'left join'); $s->AddSelect(array('Name', 'UserID', 'RoleID', 'StyleID', 'CustomStyle', 'UserBlocksCategories', 'DefaultFormatType', 'Preferences', 'SendNewApplicantNotifications'), 'u'); $s->AddSelect(array('PERMISSION_SIGN_IN', 'PERMISSION_RECEIVE_APPLICATION_NOTIFICATION', 'PERMISSION_HTML_ALLOWED', 'Permissions'), 'r'); $s->AddSelect('Url', 's', 'StyleUrl'); $s->AddWhere('u', 'UserID', '', $UserID, '='); $User = $this->Context->ObjectFactory->NewContextObject($this->Context, 'User'); $UserData = $this->Context->Database->Select($s, $this->Name, 'GetSessionDataById', 'An error occurred while attempting to retrieve the requested user.'); if ($this->Context->Database->RowCount($UserData) == 0) { // This warning is in plain english, because at the point that // this method is called, the dictionary object is not yet loaded // (this is called in the context object's constructor when the session is started) $this->Context->WarningCollector->Add('The requested user could not be found.'); } else { while ($rows = $this->Context->Database->GetRow($UserData)) { $User->GetPropertiesFromDataSet($rows); } } return $this->Context->WarningCollector->Iif($User, false); }
    I guess you could add email in there..? Probably best to just grab the userID and use the proper look up function though..
