Passing Logged-In User's Email Address to Caspio Via WordPress


Question

I would like my logged-in users to be able to access a table with details specific to their email address. I do not want a search field in place because I do not want to compromise the privacy of others.

I figured the best approach would be to pass along the logged-in user's email address to Caspio, as there would be a match within the table. I investigated doing this via the External Parameters function, but I think I have a fundamental misunderstanding of what that is.

Has anyone ever attempted to pass along a logged-in user's email address from WordPress to Caspio to pre-populate a field or load results? I think this would solve a giant headache for me, but I'm not sure where to begin.

Thank you in advance for any insights you can provide.

Hi, 

Yes, passing the WordPress logged in user email as a parameter is completely possible. 

However, you must be a bit techie to get it done, you could create a button using the WP method wp_get_current_user() in the PHP of your site and then pass the email as URL parameter. 

I found this article on the web which could help you 

If you do not have the expertise of doing something like this, I would encourage to hire someone to do it for you as you may cause serious damage to your site if it is not done properly. 

I hope this gives you some light on what you are trying to do. 

Best Regards.
