Help with accessing extra variables

2 years 2 months ago #7961 by johnb
Hello,

First let me say your extension is awesome! It works very well.

I've written a plug that has been sorted to execute after yours (during registration). I need to access the extra fields. I'm working within onUserAfterSave. I've tried your access methods:

$user = JFactory::getUser($userid);
plgSystemAJAXRegister::attachExtraFields($user);
JLog::add($user->extra, JLog::ERROR, 'jerror');


JLog reports the extra variable contents as "no" . I am trying to access a text field. Is there some trick to accessing the extra fields?

I just worked through the code further. It seems your function does not load the last variable into extra. If I add another variable without publish then the code works perfectly.

Not sure about your specific use case but the code does load all extra fields.
