XF 1.1 User ID in Custom User Fields

Active member
I'm trying to hyperlink a custom user field, and adding the HTML hyperlink, but I'd like to add the User ID in as a parameter, eg

HTML:
<a href="page.php?userid={something}">{$value}</a>
Any ideas how I get the user_id in here?

Thanks
Andy

Of the user visiting the page, or of the data of the user (eh, profile, or eh post)?
For the first one, tried {$visitor.user_id} ?

Are you working in the templates? Where exactly are you inserting this code?
Admin CP > Users > Custom User Field > General Options > Value Display HTML

try {$post.user_id} or {$message.user_id}
Unfortunately these didn't work. I suspect I may have to do a template edit to make this work - ideally even on the user info beside a post. Thoughts on how to capture my custom field (called "Drives") and then assign the user_id to it would be very helpful.

How do I manipulate a custom user field in a template if it is dynamically generated from the "Custom User Field" system?

You can use those variables in the HTML. For example:

Rich (BB code):
<a href="page.php?userid={$user.user_id}">{$user.customFields.field_id}</a>
