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.

Instructions:

All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

<?php
global $current_user;
get_currentuserinfo();
$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;
?>
