XF 1.4 xen:link to link to a profile

Perfect thanks buddy! I searched through the templates, its not done because you generally use xen:user I think, but that wasn't going to work for me.

It would typically be something like {xen:link members, $user}

But it depends where and how you are trying to use it.
Would something like this work in the welcome conversation message?

I'd like to use a generic link that will always link to the new users profile so they can check it out. Would the following work?

[URL='{xen:link members, $user}']profile[/url]

Nope. xen:link only works inside templates.

There are some placeholders that will work in the welcome conversation.

{id} gets replaced with the user's ID.
