How to Display User Profile Info on Your WordPress Site

Snippets by IsItWP

Do you want to display user info on your WordPress site? WordPress allows users to add information about themselves in their profile page in the dashboard. To display the users’ information, you can use this snippet.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s single.php file.

<?php global $current_user;

      echo 'Username: ' . $current_user->user_login . "\n";
      echo 'User email: ' . $current_user->user_email . "\n";
      echo 'User first name: ' . $current_user->user_firstname . "\n";
      echo 'User last name: ' . $current_user->user_lastname . "\n";
      echo 'User display name: ' . $current_user->display_name . "\n";
      echo 'User ID: ' . $current_user->ID . "\n";

To display the user’s twitter information, use this snippet. All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s single.php file.

global $current_user;
$user_id = $current_user->ID; // You can set $user_id to any users, but this gets the current users ID.
$user_twitter = get_user_meta( $user_id, 'twitter', true);
echo $user_twitter;

  2. gest_currentuserinfo is deprecated, alternatives?

    1. You should be able to use something like this:

      $current_user; = get_currentuserinfo();

      You can delete line 2.

  3. Is it possible for me to only show the info on one page of my website?

    1. You could use a conditional, such as an if statement, like the following:

      if ( $post_id == 25 ) // change the 25 into the proper page id

      Be sure to use the curly brackets to wrap the code properly.
