I want to show user name and profile pic in dashboard

I don't want to do by editing dashboard with blocktype.

Now I'm getting name with

{$USER|display_default_name}

But NOT ABLE TO GET PROFILE PICTURE.

Is there any way to get my blocktype plugin data's in templates

HOW CAN  I SOLVE?

Hello Vignesh,

A user's name and profile picture are already displayed on the dashboard in the sidebar. :-) Do you mean you want to display it in addition in the content area?

You could take a look at the personal information block which you can use to display a user's name and profile picture. From Mahara 1.10 on, you can place that block directly in a dashboard page. However, since Mahara doesn't yet know which picture you are going to upload, it wouldn't display your picture straight away. So a bit more work would need to be done around that. However, you might be able to see which method is used to pull the profile picture in.

Cheers

Kristina
