We have created a member dashboard in Drupal which displays a civicrm profile with civicrm membership details. Since I could not display membership type in the profile, I created a smart group which automatically adds a contact to a particular group related to their membership type.

However,when the contact views their profile, it is not showing that they are part of a particular group even though the field is publicly listed. I saw a post here https://forum.civicrm.org/index.php?topic=34060.0 which says its not possible. If so , is there any other way that I can display that the contact membership type in a profile listing?

If you are using Drupal, why not make a Views Block showing membership status/type and put this somewhere eg /user?

I understand I am not answering the OP of 'how to show a Smart Group in a profile' but am trying to answer a more generic question "how can i show a user their membership type"

You may find a downloadable view that already does this in our Treasure Trove eg this one

  • Thank you Pete. I will probably look into Drupal views if there is no other way to do this through CiviCRM Oct 19, 2017 at 6:28
  • Sure. Views just offers so much more flexibility than anything you can do with civicrm without getting tied in to customising templates etc
