    I have the wc vendors store embedded in the profile pages of a user. I was wondering if its possible to change the link and the title of the link. to redirect to the profile without changing the function directly?

    Could I do it the same way your function does it below, but rename the function and change the contents to fetch username of vendor (if there is a function for this?) and fetch profile url?

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    It was hard understanding what you’re looking for, so I think this is right…… If you provide the user ID, to get their store URL for that user ID, use:

    WCVendors_Pro_Vendor_Controller::get_vendor_store_url( $user_id) ;



    Sorry I wrote it a bit quickly.

    My PHP knowledge isn’t great but I’m trying to change the url and the name of the store. to the name of the user who owns it, and change the link to their buddypress profile.

    do you have a function that fetches the username or ID of the store owner? using that I could also construct a url that links to their buddypress profile.

    Also can I use a similar structure to the product_sold_by() and the loop_sold_by() functions?

    Thanks again.

    Fetching the user ID varies per page you are on.

    for more input


    What would the function be to fetch the username in the product page and the product loop?

    It depends on your site and your theme.

    The vendors user id of a product is the same as the products post_author. If the post_author is 1, then the user id of the vendor is 1, and from that, you can get any data you wish. So get the post_author and you have all you need to customize the hell out of things. 🙂



    Are you just trying to change the “Sold By” text to be the username instead of the store id and the URL to go to their buddypress profile instead of their store?

    Firstly change the following in the backend :

    WooCommerce > WC Vendors > General
    Vendor Display Name: User Login

    To change the link to go to the buddypress profile use the following code in your themes function.


    Just a side note, while writing this and testing it I noticed that there was a duplicate filter name in the source code so this will only work in the loop page until next release, unless you feel like editing the source code to fix the typo.

    If you do you would need to change line 611 in public/class-wcvendors-pro-store-controller.php

    change wcv_loop_sold_by to wcv_product_sold_by
