Global $wpforo;
$current_user_id = get_current_user_id();

Hi @darkness,

As far as i see. You don't need any code to get current user profile URLs, just use those URLs without specific user nickname and it'll automatically open current user profile pages:

Sorry I don't think you understand what I mean. I'm using the shortcode [wpforo item="profile" id="25"]  But I want it to load up the CURRENT user rather then a specific one. I want to do something like [wpforo item="profile" id="$user_id"]

moved to a different plugin because of no solution and doesn't meet my needs... Pretty stupid code to make a shortcode with only a specific user ID..

Sorry to hear that. We've already started working on the current user shortcodes. So I hope you'll have an opportunity use it in future.

Thank you for trying wpForo!

no all I wanted to do was make the shortcode [wpforo item="profile" id="25"] get the current user rather then a specific one. Something like [wpforo item="profile" id="$user_id"]

Please follow the steps: 

1. open the wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpforo.php file 

2. find the following line

public function init_shortcode_page(){ 

3. put the code below before this line if( $args['id'] || $args['slug'] ){

if( $args['item'] === 'profile' && !$args['id'] ) $args['id'] = $this->current_userid;

Then just use the following shortcode:

[wpforo item="profile"]
