Post a thread so looks like resource manager message

    I'd like to modify the following code so $body message posted to the new thread looks like what happens when a new resource is added or updated.

    So, it would be a message stating a new blog entry has been created, then a trimmed quote, followed by a message to continue reading.

    This issue I'm having is getting the user name to display in the $body 'submitted ...' section

    PHP:
        $body '';
            if(
    $post_contains == 'full')
            {
                
                
    $body =   'submitted a new blog post';  // This is NOT correct
                
                
    $body .= '[quote]' XenForo_Helper_String::autoLinkBbCode(XenForo_Html_Renderer_BbCode::renderFromHtml(nl2br($content))) . "[/quote]";
                
                
    /* Add preg_replace */
                
    $body preg_replace('#\[nlposts .*\]#'''$body);
                
                
    /* Add Trim to 500 Words */
                
    $body XenForo_Helper_String::wholeWordTrim($body500);
            }

            
    $body .= "[URL='" get_permalink($post->ID) . "']Continue reading the Original Blog Post[/URL]";

            
    $postWriter $writer->getFirstMessageDw();
            
    $postWriter->set('message'$body);
            
    $postWriter->setExtraData(XenForo_DataWriter_DiscussionMessage::DATA_ATTACHMENT_HASH'');

            
    $writer->preSave();
    Thank you for your help.

    I've tried {name} , username, $user['username'] ... any suggestion would be appreciated. It's probably obviously.

    Have you checked DataWriter/Resource.php from line 501?

    I've been up and down that file but am going to re-open it now that you've suggested it !

    post your complete code

    is this the xenscript bridge?
    if yes you can use
    PHP:
    $XF->visitor->get('user_id'));
    $XF->visitor->get('username'));

    OK. I looked at that earlier and didn't understand. That line calls a phrase and in the phrase is {username}. But I tried {username} and the site will not load. So maybe I'm not understanding how to write the $body line.

    Should I build a phrase and try to rewrite the code that way? Can't I just pull the username another way?

    Code:
    {username} submitted a new resource:
    
    [url={resourceLink}]{title}[/url] (version {version}) - {tagLine}
    
    [quote]{snippet}[/quote]
    
    [url={resourceLink}]Read more about this resource...[/url]

    This is the line I'm trying to get to post the username:

    PHP:
     
    $body 
    SOMETHING NEEDS TO GO HERE  'submitted a new blog post';  // This is NOT correct
     
    Oh, and yes, this is the bridge.

    Shouldn't it go in a template?

    $body $XF->visitor->get('username') . ' submitted a new blog post';

    I thought I did that a few hours ago ;)

    Let me try again.

    Well strip my gears and call me shiftless ... I know I tried that sucker hours ago... LOL. Anyway, the extra ) had to be removed but it's working.

    PHP:
    $body $XF->visitor->get('username') . ' submitted a new blog post';
    Now this looks much nicer !

    Thank you all for the help.
