Displaying user profile data in dbman SQL
I would like to display data from the community profile, in my dbman sql 2.0. I have it working properly with Community, but can't figure this out. I found this code on the forums, but it just returns an error when I put it in one of my dbman sql templates:

<%Plugins::Auth_Community::get_profile%> - imports the user profile data as template tags, then:
<%prof_city%> - displays city data from the user's profile
<%comm_username%> - displays username from the user's profile

Is this the right code to make this work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Mmm.. I've never had anyt luck with the built in function for "loading" the profile. I don't use DBMan, but something like this should work:

sub {

my $user = $_[0];

my $cfg = DBMan::Plugins->get_plugin_user_cfg('Auth_Community');

my $NEWDB = new GT::SQL (
def_path => "$cfg->{community_private}/defs",
cache => 0,
debug => 0,
subclass => 1

require GT::SQL::Condition;
my $db = $NEWDB->table('comm_users');

return $db->select( { comm_username => $user } )->fetchrow_hashref;

...then call with:

<%get_gcomm_profile($USERNAME)%> - where $USERNAME is the one you wanna load.

The bit in red may need changing - cos I don't actually know where the equivelant of Links::Plugins is stored =))

Hope that helps.
