Is that even possible? I have the following code, but it's failing at the if statement. I did a print_r($p) to find out what it was outputting, and all it was giving up was a "1". Hmm???? And yes, I checked the database to make sure everything existed.

BTW, the class Profile is an extension of Page.

public function EditProfileLink() {
      $mid = Member::currentUserID();
      if($p = DataObject::get_one("Profile", "MemberID = $mid")) {
         return $p->Link('edit');
      } else
      return false;

So if you do a Debug::show(DataObject::get_one("Profile", "MemberID = $mid")); does it return 1 still or just the object? How about Debug::show(DataObject::get_one("Profile"));
