User custom fields when viewing items

    In Resource Manager, when viewing a specific resource, I am able to access user custom fields in the resource_view template using following:


    I presume the equivalent template in showcase is nflj_showcase_item

    How would I able to access user custom fields in Showcase?

    Reason is that I want to use google authorship for showcase items created, in order to improve SEO

    The Resource Manager does not have its own Custom Fields nor does it deal with Custom User fields. You must either be using Waynes Custom user fields addon that extends the core XF Custom User Fields functionality into the RM or another addon that I am not aware of.

    You'd have to extend showcase in a similar manner in which (what ever you are using above) extends the RM.

    I am using User Custom Fields, which is in the core of XF. I have not installed Waynes Custom user fields addon.

    Following code works for me in the resource_view template, i.e. the user custom fields of googleplus and googleauthor are retrieved and displayed:

    <xen:if is="{$resource.customFields.googleplus}">
    <xen:if is="{$resource.customFields.googleauthor}">
    <dd><a href="{$resource.customFields.googleplus}" rel="author" target="_blank">{$resource.customFields.googleauthor}</a></dd>
