Good day, everyone:

I want to make wordpress to add the user's id number behind the ref's link string, so that, for example

<div class="toolsbutton"> 
<a href="http://mysite.com/mysite/page-">go this page</a>

above code will be turning in to a link if the user id is 113 who clicked it, the address will become:

<a href="http://mysite.com/mysite/page-113">go this page</a>

Or, if you know an alternative to do so, please also let me know.

Generally, the purpose will be that a user will be directed to a page that with unified address but there will be a number equal to his id attached behind. every time, someone click the same link, in same page, will have the same effect on each user. When a user click it, will be the CURRENT USER, who is a registered user.

If anyone could tell me if I could create the page at the same time (if not exist), will be terrific!

Thank You

I resolved it by using a php snippet plugin with Joshc's method – Adam Mar 7 '13 at 15:37

I guess maybe wp_get_current_user(); is what your looking for.

Something like this...

<?php $current_user = wp_get_current_user(); ?>

<a href="http://mysite.com/mysite/page-<?php echo $current_user->ID; ?>">go this page</a>



Actually I just re-read the question and maybe your not after the current user? You might want to elaborate the question more so we know the aim better.

Hi Joshc, I tried it, but I got Forbidden You don't have permission to access.... message. Do you know the correct method to apply this php code into my link? – Adam Mar 7 '13 at 4:09
