Actual user name is superuser but with kint, its still reading the admin id and displayname. This also happens to the URL, its reading the admin's profile link profile/1

enter image description here

I tried to dig into {{ content }} but cannot find tag with value superuser.


I noticed that in my twig template, {{ content.user_id }} would link into user's profile page(user/1), so the main question I think is what is the correct profile id of user in twig. I tried using content.profile_id but doesn't work.

I have this simple site that a user can post a simple content in the site. I also have a custom Profile type enabled from Profile module. I noticed that when I click on the photo, it is directed to the profile page profile/1(which is my expected result) but when the author name is clicked, it is directed into the user's profile page user/1. How can I change the author's name link to be directed into profile pageprofile/1?

You can use the example from Twig Functions:

{# Link to user entity page. #}
<a href="{{ path('entity.user.canonical', {'user': user.id}) }}">{{ 'View user profile'|t }}</a>

and modify the route to point the link to the profile page:

{# Link to user profile page. #}
<a href="{{ path('entity.profile.canonical', {'profile': user.id}) }}">{{ 'View user profile'|t }}</a>
  • Thank you so much for your reply. I use the below line and seems to be working. The link is directed into the profile's page however, the text displayed in the author's name is View user profile'. Jul 27, 2018 at 7:58

    You can replace the text from the example with {{ user.displayname }}

  • Encounter another issue when using {{ user.displayname }}, it display only the admin Name and not the others. I also tried your answer in drupal.stackexchange.com/a/196637/70281 using author_name but giving me null value in kint(). Ill be sending the kint result in the issue above as reference.

  • The linked answer is for a node template and only there author_name is available.
