for some reason, in my installation the following line doesn't return a value even though the current logged-in user has a bio:

SELECT nid FROM {bio} WHERE uid = %d

I'm guessing this might be the result of a larger problem, however I have fixed this problem with the attached patch that changes the above line to look through the node table instead.

Is this an installation that predates bio_update_5100()?

Need help figuring out why the following snippet in my Workflow NG Login Redirect results in errors:


$nid = bio_for_user($account->uid);
$node = node_load($nid);

if (!$node->field_bio_name || sizeof($node->field_bio_name) == 0) {
  return FALSE;
} else {
  return TRUE;

I do not think that this patch fixes the cause, because you're simply skipping the bio table after Bio failed to add a record for a user.

We have some more patches waiting to be submitted, and one of them is a complete user registration overhaul.
