$mybb->user['username'] gives you the username. How do I get the location? Already tried $mybb->user['location'], didn't work.
which location ? is it place of the user, eg. London, NewYork, Tokyo .. entered in the profile fields ?

Yes, that is what I was referring to.
where you want to put the location ?
if you want to use it on posts then {$post['fid1']} gives location of the user.
on member profile, you can use {$userfields['fid1']}

I was trying to modify a plugin to pull the user's location when [location] is put in a post. 

$mybb->user['fid1'] seems to have done the trick. thanks!
