[SOLVED] Links to profiles (e.g. in articles)

9 months 4 days ago - 8 months 4 weeks ago #322001 by Backstein
Good evening.

I already tried to use the info from the topic: "Menu SEF URL to own profile"topic . Unfortunately I'm not able to adapt the links to my own page as I coudn't figure out how they work.

I need two links to use them in a normal blog-like article on the main page:
  1. A link which leads to the profile of the logged in user clicking on it
  2. A link which leads to a specific profile (e.g. the admin or point of contact regarding a certain topic)

Maybe there's a general way to find out which link to use for CB features? Maybe later I'd like to to the same with links to userlists etc...


Best regards

B

Use CB Author Bot if you're wanting to link the author to their profile. Aside from that suggest reading the CB Primer Book, which you can download below as it goes through setting up menu items for CB.

I use the primer book. It's quite well structured and none of the chapter titles seems to fit.

It would save both of us time and posts if you could point out at least what chapter you believe contains the answer. I don't mind reading. I'm quite a good reader.
After searching a second time I still couldn't find an answer. I searched wherever the phrases ''link'' or ''menu item'' were mentionned.

So I precise my problem:
  • On the welcome page an article is displayed. Nothing to do with CB. Just html.
  • Inside this text, several users are mentionned.
  • I'd like to link their names in the text to their profile-page (I imagine something <a href...>-like).

Greetings

Ah, ok misunderstood what you were asking. You need CB Content Bot for that so you can use substitutions inside of Joomla content and anywhere Joomla content plugins are supported. See the below tutorial on how to use substitutions.

Okay, so the link I find manually:
URL/index.php?option=com_comprofiler&view=userprofile&Itemid=187

...won't work forever, right?

You can use the raw URL to profiles, yes. It is as follows. It's a lot easier to just use the substitution though.

Your Profile
index.php?option=com_comprofiler&view=userprofile

Specific Profile
index.php?option=com_comprofiler&view=userprofile&user=USER_ID_HERE
