I'm trying to create a plugin to create/update users' profile data. I figured out how to create a user but updating... not so much.

Here is the code I'm using:

$user = craft()->userSession->getUser();
$user->setContent(array('middleName' => "Dave"));

From what I understand the "saveUser" method is used for both creating and updating user data. Whenever I run the code I get the following error:

CDbCommand failed to execute the SQL statement: SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1062 Duplicate entry '1-en_us' for key 'craft_content_elementId_locale_unq_idx'

If "saveUser" is truly used for creating and updating what am I doing wrong?


I'm not sure if this is causing your error, but it's recommended to use setContentFromPost() or getContent()->setAttributes() so that craft has a chance to prep the field values, as discussed in this answer, setContent() vs $entry->getContent()->foo, and What is getContent()?.

$user = craft()->userSession->getUser();
    'middleName' => "Dave",

Although with that error it's possible that something else is going on in your plugin.
