[SOLVED] User ID of displayed Profile was created by VladKireev
Dear,

Could you please describe how to output the User ID on each profile page?
I need the ID not of the user who is viewing the page (logged in), but of the displayed user.

Thank you in advance!

Add [user_id] substitution to a Custom HTML field. You can use IF substitutions to limit who can see it. Check out our substitutions tutorial below for examples and usage instructions.

krileon, thank you for response.

But it's quite difficult to the average user. Could you please describe the procedure more detailed.
Do I understand correctly that I need to:
1. Create a Field (which type if I need to output id? Integer?).
2. Create a custom layout in /html/layouts/com_fields/field
3. Set the Layout of the new Field to the custom one.

But how should php code look like in a custom layout?

In CB > Field Management create a Custom HTML field (this is a field type in the dropdown). Then just add [user_id] to the HTML parameter. That's all you need to do. You do not need to create layouts. You do not need to write or know PHP to use substitutions.
