I want to use the Google+ and twitter links that can be added in User's profile using the WordPress SEO plugin and display them on the author page. Is there any way I can get those links from the plugin or do I need to fetch them using some other method say directly from database.

SEO Plugin @the official repo


I found a way to do it in author.php file

Just use the following to display the Google+ and Twitter links:

$curauth = (isset($_GET['author_name'])) ? get_user_by('slug', $author_name) : get_userdata(intval($author));
echo $curauth->googleplus;
echo $curauth->twitter;
  • And where does $curauth come from? – kaiser Oct 15 '12 at 1:37
