  • Create link to member.php

    I am trying to create a link to the profile page of a member who posted a message, started a thread, added a calendar event, etc. I am close but cannot get the member ID (u=) to work right. Example:
    <a href="$vboptions[bburl]/member.php?$session[sessionurl]u=$bbuserinfo[userid]">Link Title</a>
    Links to the user who is logged in, but not the user who posted the message.

    I think I could do this if I understood what the u=$bbuserinfo[userid] variables were. I think [userid] is the database field but what does $bbuserinfo refer to? If I wanted to place it in another page how would I know what to replace $bbuserinfo with?

    Thank you

    The variable for the poster's userid depends on which template you are in. For example, the userid of the poster of a post in the postbit templates is:

    The variable for use in the threadbit templates is:

    You will see other variables being used in other templates. Usually you can find them by looking through the rest of the template.
