User Field Values In Articles


The user field values in articles Joomla! component with it's supporting plugins gives the user and site administrator the ability to easily add Joomla! user field values and most common custom user field type values to an article or content with ease. The fields are added by means of short codes which can either be added manually or using the supporting content editor button.

For example If we want to display the currently logged-in users email address, then an email short code "{{ud_email}}" is added to the content which will then be replaced with the currently logged in users email address field value. If we want to display the email address for a specific user we prepend the users user id to the email short code e.g. {{userid:1udemail}}. This will show the email address for the user with id 1. This Joomla! extension has the capability to provide Joomla! users with the ability to display different content for authenticated "logged-in" users and non authenticated "guest" users by means of content blocks using short codes and placeholders. This component together with it's supporting plugins are easy to use and install. The functionality has been developed specifically for the JCE editor and the default Joomla! TinyMCE editor but should work on other Joomla! supported editors as well.
