    Hi all,

    I need to get the user ID of the profile being viewed. How can I achieve this on the bbpress profile page?

    Thanks!

    There seems to be a bug with this function: it returns 0 for a new user who hasn’t made a forum post yet. As soon as the user does make a post, it returns the correct ID. Is there any way to work around that, maybe initialize the user with a function call?

    How do you use this mike? I may want to print a gallery of each user in their profile, but i cant figure out how to do this. By now, this works:

    global $current_user; get_currentuserinfo();
    echo do_shortcode(‘[nggtags gallery='. $current_user->user_login .']‘);

    but prints out the logged in user gallery, not the user of the profile page, any clue? I use tags to make the galleries for each user, I only need the name of the user profile, printed in the shortcode, :) Thank you guys in advance, maybe this helps you too Mike.. gl
