Been trying to edit this code which is for accessing user profiles when clicking their name,  i want to show the user id number instead of the username/handle

function qa_get_one_user_html($handle, $microformats)
  Return HTML to display for user with username $handle
   return strlen($handle) ? ('<A HREF="'.qa_path_html('user/'.$handle).
    '" CLASS="qa-user-link'.($microformats ? ' url nickname' : '').'">'.qa_html($handle).'</A>') : '';


I know that.. for example.. www.question2answer.org/qa/user/234 will not work, but that's not what I'm trying to achieve, I plan to link the user to another page that requires their id

there are some new functions in 1.5, one of which is qa_handles_to_userids().  It's used as follows:

            $userids = qa_handles_to_userids(array($handle));
            $userid = $userids[$handle];

If I understand you correctly, this is probably the easiest way.

that was exactly what i needed. thanks!
