User Profile Module

The User Profile Module sets user-related variables for the application templates that have User Profile set as their Page type in the application template detail page.
The information displayed in these templates is the data for the user whose id is provided in the url in the Profile page.

Assigning The User Profile Module to a Template

In order for a template to have access to the variables set in this module, the module must be assigned to the template.

To select the User Profile Module to be accessed by a template, in Newzulu Platform, go to the Application Media Detail page for that template, and
select User Profile in the Page type field.

Customizing Meta Data

A user's Meta Data is displayed in the user profile page.
You can customize supported attributes by creating custom fields in the user profile form. This is done by adding meta data fields in the user profile.
To access meta data form fields, set the 'name' attribute of the form field to 'meta[varname]'.
To access the meta data variables in the <fm:UserList> component, use the variable {$$user_metadata.user.varname}
