Front-end User Listing

Display customized user lists anywhere (page, post, content) with the addon shortcodes. From Frontend Setup tab, a page can be set for the user’s public profile so that one can browse user profiles through given user listing links. Please note, public profile page should contain public profile shortcode like: [user-meta type=public form="Form_Name"]

The basic shortcode to display user listing in the frontend is [user-meta-user-list], which displays a user list with the link to the user public profile and it contains all the existing users.

Below are the different options of the user listing shortcode.


Option: caption

Default: null

Description: Caption of the user table. No caption by default.

Example: [user-meta-user-list caption="My Caption"]



Default: all

Description: Filter users by role, write multiple roles with comma separation.

Example: [user-meta-user-list role="author,subscriber"]



Default: null

Description: Fields to display in the user table. Write multiple shared fields ID with comma separation. Without this option, the user list contains default fields.

Example: [user-meta-user-list fields="1,2,3,4"]


Option: link-field

Default: null

Description: Only applicable if fields option is applied. Pick fields id (with comma separation) that will contain the user public profile link.

Example: [user-meta-user-list fields="1,2,3,4" link-field="1,2"]


Backend User Listing

With this addon, you can easily customize the user list dashboard on the backend with custom columns. Adding new columns with UMP shared fields data and removing the existing default columns are both possible. From Backend Setup tab, including and excluding columns can be done by Add Column (UMP Shared Field) to Backend User List and Exclude Default Column from Backend User List select field respectively.
