I'm trying to output the slug of the comment author. I'm able to output the username using get_comment_author() but I can'tfigure out how to output the slug.

For example, username might be Test User while the slug might be test-user1

Howw can I output the comment author slug?


If you have the username then you should be able to get the user using the get_user_by function, which will return the user object


$user = get_user_by(field, value);

  • This doesn't help if you don't have the username. I need to output it directly. – user6686780 Mar 5 '17 at 23:51
  • Sorry I thought you said you had the username 'I'm able to output the username using get_comment_author()' – Jonathan Bossenger Apr 12 '17 at 20:55
