Your friendly “Current User Data” Deamon 0.4

Authors: F J Kaiser, sc0ttkclark
Gives you an overview about any Data of the currently logged in user including all code to get or display it.
Includes different code-approaches of user_role and the (depracated) user_level inside the code.
So just take a look at the code and inline-comments
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

Upload the folder current_user_deamon to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
Go to “Tools” > “Show User Data” to see the information about yourself and your users.

1) What information is displayed by the plugin?

Global data about all of your users and roles:
— A list of all roles including the number of users assigned to it.
— Total # of users.
— Default user role.
Data from the currently logged in user:
— Role, Name, Login-Name, ID, etc.; all basic stuff like nicename,…
— User Settings
— Roles and Capabilities
A short how-to for adding capabilities & roles
A comparison between the data that comes from global current_user vs. userdata

2) Can the plugin *do* something?

Not really. It’s just here as a reference for
1. core developers
2. plugin developers
3. theme developers
4. people who want to customize or add/change something at a theme or plugin.
Use it to get an overview of what user specific data can be handled and the way(s) to do this.
