I know I can't really include all this php in a template but I need to grab information from a custom user field to use in my code. Example would be the steam stats grabber I was using. It's parses XML code and requires a user to enter a STEAM ID in their profile info. I skated by the easy why by using GET and linking to them like yadaexample.com/steam.php?userID=USER1 and then treating it like an image or calling to it with an iframe. I don't want to use iframes or treat it like an image. I would like to able to grab a customer user field and use it directly in my code. I've tried searching but I haven't come up with much. I know about the callback methods but I'm not sure how I'd use a callback method on a custom userfield for this.... Would I have to utilize a callback and run it through a script that replaces all the instances where the user field is required and then create another page to output the information into the template? So it'd go custom field > php callback > library/MyAddOnID/callback/method *implement it like withe jakes validation add-on* and then output it to a template? Sorry if this was confusing... but i seem to keep messing up.
