    Hi there!

    I need to know what {xen:link XXX} would be to link to a $user's profile.

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

    But it depends where and how you are trying to use it.

    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.

    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.
