display variables outside whmcs


Recommended Posts

what i want to do is display the client first name on a page outside the whmcs directory, if the client is logged in.


i did this:







$firstname= $this->get_template_vars('clientsdetails.firstname');



if ($_SESSION['loggedinstatus']=="true") { echo "Welcome $firstname"; }

else { echo "Please Login"; }




but $firstname= $this->get_template_vars('clientsdetails.firstname'); doesn't work.


any ideas on how to output the first name on a page outside whmcs?

I ran into this the other day ;)


get_template_vars doesn't work properly. If it's setup as a sub-page of WHMCS (as it seems to be above) you should be able to access it directly with:


$firstname = $GLOBALS['clientsdetails']['firstname'];


Alternativly, i prefer this method which seems to have been created for integration purposes:


if (!empty($GLOBALS['clientsdetails']['id']))
	require_once ("./includes/clientfunctions.php");
	$userdetails = getclientsdetails($GLOBALS['clientsdetails']['id']);
$fullname= $userdetails['firstname']." ". $userdetails['lastname'];
$email = $userdetails['email'];


Note, the latter method is limited to those 3 variables from what i can tell. It seems to have been created specifically for the Kayako integration.

Do you mean Client Area Password? I'm not sure, but if the password is encrypted in the database (I think it is) then you won't be able to decrypt it, as the method used only works one way (Text > Encrpyted). So, you won't be able to show the password string itself.
