Home › Forums › General Issues › User info by page name
I am new to ACF and WordPress, and am working on a project that requires userdata to be pulled by page name.
I have built a user form, which works perfectly. I am able to call data with <?php $user_info = get_userdata();?>. Unfortunately, there will be multiple pages using the template that this is built into.
First, is this possible? If so, how to go about it?
I managed to do this with <?php $user_info = get_userdata( $post -> post_author );?> , but am having difficulty with custom image fields.
To get the custom field values from a user, please take a look at this page: http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/how-to-get-values-from-a-user/.
I hope this helps.
Thanks James, I’m trying to apply fields as custom page styles. Color and text fields come up fine, but background images are not rendering. Do I need to apply them as a function first?
Could you please share the code you are using to show the background image?
This is what I am using to identify the author inside my template. I chose to make a custom template because it will allow me to duplicate the page and set the author to specific person. Person will then be able to an account page I set up with custom user form, which includes two image fields (a logo and background), to customize their page.
$user_info = get_userdata( $post -> post_author );?>
<?php echo ” . $user_info->farm_name . “\n” ?>
<?php echo ” . $user_info->contact_number . “\n” ?>
<?php echo ” . $user_info->stream_name ?>
<?php echo ” . $user_info->app_name ?>
<?php echo ” . $user_info->background_color . “\n” ?>
<?php echo ” . $user_info->font_color . “\n” ?>;”>
I tried using the example, but that left me no fields rendering.
This is the closest I’ve gotten to a return of anything, in this case, the field id.
<?php echo ” . $user_info->background_image ?>
I do apologize for my lack of knowledge. Html has been much friendlier to me. I honestly paid someone a good sum to set this all up for me 2 years ago, but after a multitude of excuses, and finally ignoring me completely it’s obvious if I want something done, I’ll have to do it.
You should be able to get the image by using this code:
<?php $background = get_field('background_image_field_name', 'user_'.$user_info->ID); ?> <img src="<?php echo $background['url']; ?>" alt="<?php echo $background['alt']; ?>" />
Please change the “background_image_field_name” with the name of your custom field.
You can check the $background value by using this code:
echo '<pre>'; var_dump($background); echo '</pre>';
If it doesn’t work, could you please share the JSON export of your field group and the PHP file of the template?
Hi James, yes I solved this a couple days ago, just been too busy to post.
I ended up with this:
$temp_post = get_post($post_id);
$author_id = $temp_post->post_author;
$background_main = get_field(‘background_image’, ‘user_’ . $author_id);
background-image:url(‘<?php echo $background_main; ?>’)
