Users methods

Users methods are registered with the usersMethods extension.

Default users methods

For a full list of default users methods, please check out the Reference.

Getting started

You can extend the set of defined users methods in a plugin file.

/site/plugins/user-methods/index.php
Kirby::plugin('my/plugin', [
    'usersMethods' => [
         'withArticles' => function () {
            return $this->articles()->toPages()->isNotEmpty();
        }
    ]
]);

This example shows the basic architecture of a users method. You define the method name with the key for the usersMethods extension array. $this in the callback function refers to the $users object.

The example will return all users where the articles field is not empty.

Working with method arguments

In some cases it might be helpful to be able to pass arguments to the method:

You can define arguments for a method like this:

/site/plugins/user-methods/index.php
Kirby::plugin('my/plugin', [
    'usersMethods' => [
        'withArticles' => function ($postType = null) {
            return $this->articles()->toPages()->filterBy('type', $postType)->isNotEmpty();
        }
    ]
]);

And then use it like this:

<?= $users->withArticles('video') ?>

This example will return all users with video post type articles.
