[buddypress-dev] List of users with avatar (now list of First and Last names)

Andy, I have tried the code below, and it works fine just out of the
box in a template. Thanks!

But instead of the User names, I would like for the First and Last
Name to display, as from the BP Profiles.  (To have a more Facebook
kind of experience where the actual name is important - rather than a
user name.)

How do I modify the code below to get a list of First and Last names?

regards Wessel

I'm working on the friends component right now, which will essentially
do this.

If you want to list members, you can just query the users table, and
then get their avatar and link based on their id.

$users = $wpdb->get_results ( $wpdb->prepare( "SELECT id FROM
wp_users" ) );
for ( $i = 0; $i < count($users); $i++ ) {
  $bp_users[] = array(
    'avatar' => xprofile_get_avatar( $users[$i]->id, 1 ),
    'link' => bp_core_get_userlink( $users[$i]->id )

Then you can loop through and do whatever you want with $bp_users:

 for ( $i = 0; $i < count($bp_users); $i++ ) {
   echo '<p>' . $bp_users[$i]['avatar'] . '</p>';
   echo '<p>' . $bp_users[$i]['link'] . '</p>';

I haven't tested or even tried that code, but it should work if I
haven't made any typos.
