cb_categorie variable (Field Manager)

15 years 2 months ago #10057 by Jacob
I'm wondering if its possible to detect the value of the "cb_categorie" after a user is logged in.

I'd like to make some template changes based on different user categories.

Much appreciated!

You need to make an sql query to table #__comprofiler with the user id to get data.

Mikko,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Can you help me with writing this query, my php/mysql knowledge aren't one of my strengths.

Thanks

See the source. Plenty of examples there. Try grep -R "from #__comprofiler" * to find some.

here's the query I got so far, let me know if its correct:

[code:1]
$query = "SELECT cb_categorie, id FROM #__comprofiler"
."\n WHERE id = ". $my->id;
$cat= $database->loadResult();
echo $cat;
[/code:1]

I put this code in my template and logged in via front end, didnt see anything echo'd out.

Any help is appreciated.

Looks OK to me. Good that you got it right!

If you experience performance issues, you could consider storing the field you fetch to the session, but this is much more compicated.
