I created a custom field in the users profiles.

I need to display in node.tpl.php, this field for the author of the node.

I tried :

<?php 
print $node_author = user_load($node->uid); 
print ($node_author->field_custom); 
?>

But i have an error :

Recoverable fatal error : Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string

Do you know where I'm wrong? And, is it the best way of proceeding?

Replace the above code with below one:

<?php 
  $node_author = user_load($node->uid); 
  print ($node_author->field_custom); 
?>

You are using print when assigning into a variable, that's you are getting error.

remove print from line 2 and the code should be as below

<?php 
$node_author = user_load($node->uid); 
print render($node_author->field_custom); 
?>

Try with print render($node_author->field_custom);

Or you can try as well:

insert at the top of you node.tpl.php

<?php 
global $user;
$node_author = user_load($user->uid);
$yourvariable = $node_author->field_custom;
?>

Where you want print the field insert:

<?php print $yourvariable['und'][0]['value'];?>

Issue is in the way you are printing the value. actually print is just used for printing string, while print_r is used for printing array or Object. so in your case when you use $node_author->field_custom, then as it is an array, therefore it is not printing and giving you error. You can print it as below.

print_r($node_author->field_custom);

It will print the array, and will not give you error, however if you just want to print the value, then you can print somewhat like:

print $node_author->field_custom[LANGUAGE_NONE][0]['value'];

If above code doesnot work, then paste output of

print_r($node_author->field_custom);

It will give better approach.

//Edited

$image_url = file_create_url($node_author->field_custom[und][0]['uri']);
print render(theme_image($image_url));

Or

print render($node_author->field_custom);

  • dont use print $node_author->field_custom[LANGUAGE_NONE][0]['value']; Just use print_r($node_author->field_custom);, after that I will be able to give the answer. Mar 11, 2016 at 14:29
  • It returns me : Array ( [und] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [fid] => 17 [uid] => 1 [filename] => name.jpg [uri] => public://name.jpg [filemime] => image/jpeg [filesize] => (...) [status] => 1 [timestamp] => (...) [rdf_mapping] => Array ( ) [alt] => [title] => [width] => 199 [height] => 300 ) ) )
