How can I get value from custom field in Joomla 3.8.5?

Post by justibatata2810 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 1:46 am

I had created the new fields in User:Fields named departments, phone, and mobile phone. How can I view it at my site like how username and email can be viewed? For now I'm using getUser() and getParam(), but only name, username, and email appeared. Where can I get the field name in Joomla? Please excuse my knowledge as I'm very new to Joomla. Thank you.

$registered = JAccess::getUsersByGroup(2); //change number in the brackets
$rows = '';

foreach($registered as $user_id) //loop every user exist
{
echo "<br>";
$user = JFactory::getUser($user_id);

$rows .= '';
$rows .= '' . $user->name . '';
$rows .= '' . $user->username . '';
$rows .= '' . $user->getParam('com_fields_departments') . '';
$rows .= '' . $user->getParam('com_fields_phone') . '';
$rows .= '' . $user->getParam('com_fields_mobile_phone') . '';
$rows .= '' . $user->email . '';
$rows .= '';
}
echo $rows;
