Question! how to export and embed stuff from account.php to pagemng

edited August 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
i'd like to create a page with page manager and i'd also like to embed the username and account picture from account.php.

is it enough to copy and paste the necessary code snipets from a->to b , like the div/id with the account picture and such or does it need a lot more than that?


edit: i've added the "Question"-word to signalize ; it's not a "how to" step by step guide :)

    Why don't you try it and tell us? ;) Probably no one has tried this yet, so try it and report back to us!

    P.S. your title implies you had written a HOWTO do just this — "how to export and embed stuff from account.php to pagemng".

    oh it was really just a question, and stash, you could'nt believe it but (and now guess what!) i've tried it and it ended up in a disaster.

    so the report is actually:
    don't try to copy account.php into the page manager textfield, even if it says html and php is okay !
    so the moral of a story is: it's better to ask first.

    ok so here we go :)

    page manager supports php, so you can simply access the Session class information. eg.<?php echo $GLOBALS['Context']->Session->User->Name; ?> or something to that effect; not sure if I'm remembering the heirarchy correctly...

    thanks a lot :)
