So I have created an author.php page in correspondence with this page: https://s2member.com/kb-article/s2member-profile-shortcode/ and I want certain fields to be displayed on this author page. The author.php page is part of my child theme.
At the beginning of the author.php page I begin with
$curauth = (isset($_GET['author_name'])) ? get_user_by('slug', $author_name) : get_userdata(intval($author));
When I call the standard bio field in WP with this: echo $curauth->user_description;
I get what I want.
However, when I do the same for S2 in this case: echo $shortbio = get_user_field(‘shortbio’);
I get the same of the user that is logged in…
Now I know I am pretty close but would appreciate someone helping me out with this
