Add "Your Trophies" Button to Account Menu

    Okay, so, I'm trying to add a "your trophies" button to the account menu that links to members/<visitor's username>/trophies. I've got all the code needed to make the button appear, but I'm having trouble figuring out the syntax for {xen:link}.

    What I have at the moment is this:
        <a href="{xen:link 'members/trophies', $visitor}">
            {xen:phrase your_trophies} ({xen:number $visitor.trophy_points})
    class Teapot_MiscTrophies_UserMenuTrophies
        public static function 
    templateHook($hookName, &$contents, array $hookParamsXenForo_Template_Abstract $template)
            if (
    $hookName == 'navigation_visitor_tab_links2')
    $contents .= $template->create('teapot_navigation_mytrophies');

    If I click the link currently, it tries to direct me to members/trophies - which of course leads to an error. I've pretty much copied the link code verbatim from here. As an aside, the {xen:number} doesn't work either, probably for the same reason.

    Thanks for your time :)

    You've created a new template and not exposed the $visitor variable to your new template, so it doesn't recognise it.

    To test, use a dump to see if your $visitor variable works: {xen:helper dump, $visitor} - it will probably return NULL.

    You'll need to pass some viewParams along with your new template.

    You're not passing any parameters to your template.

    This makes all of the parent template parameters available to your template. (I've added the code in red):

    	class Teapot_MiscTrophies_UserMenuTrophies
    		public static function templateHook($hookName, &$contents, array $hookParams, XenForo_Template_Abstract $template)
    			if ($hookName == 'navigation_visitor_tab_links2')
    				$params = $template->getParams();
    				$contents .= $template->create('teapot_navigation_mytrophies', $params);
