Ok, this is a tricky question with probably too complicated an answer -- but I've been amazed at the solutions I've gotten here, so here goes....
First, the specifics:
* I'm about to import hundreds of users from an old site into a new Wordpress one.
* The new site has cool-looking user profiles courtesy of Ultimate Member, and you can build the profile with fields that you can place anywhere you like.
* I already imported a bunch of posts/articles that mention these users, many of which have corresponding tags that match these user's display name. (So an article that talks about "John Smith" will also have a "John Smith" tag or "john-smith" tag slug associated with it).
Now....I would like to add a content box on the default Ultimate Member profile form that has links to the posts/articles that mention the user of whatever profile you're viewing. I'm not quite sure how to do this, however.
I know there are ways to call a user's ID, I believe, but not sure how to get this to correlate to posts that mention said user (I don't want posts WRITTEN by the user, which Ultimate Member can already do).
A user's profile URL would be something like "www.mysite.com/profile/john-smith", while a tag slug related to them is also "john-smith" -- but is there a way to write some code that could be placed in a content box on profiles that would dynamically display a list of posts related to that user only?
A displayed list of posts is preferred, but I'm ok with a link that takes you to a post-search for the tag slug that relates to them as well. As long as there's SOME way to access posts related to the user who's profile you're visiting...
Is this possible?? I'm sure it is, so the question is...how easy could this be? It's for a non-profit site (so can't really spend money on custom development), and it's also due very soon (so on tight schedule).
Any help, suggestions, leads, etc. would be greatly appreciated -- thanks!!
