How do I reach a specific userdata in the database, when that field has a dash (hyphen)
- in the slug?
I use the plugin WP-Members.
I have created a new userdata field with the plugin with the name
date-of-birth - by mistake I used these dashes
- instead of underscores
_. In the database (the
usermeta table) it now looks like:
I get the userdata with these two lines:
$user_data = get_userdata( $user_id ); $user_data->user_email;
which works for all fields - exept those with dashes in them! I have tried this:
$user_data = get_userdata( $user_id ); $user_data->date-of-birth;
which just returns
0. And this:
$user_data = get_userdata( $user_id ); $user_data->date_of_birth;
which of course doesn't work (it gives
null), since that is not the correct name.
Is there a method to reach this field with dashes in the slug?
Note I can't change the slug. That is not allowed by this plugin after the field is created.
