Nonprofit Board Management
[resolved] Display on the page? (10 posts)

    Hello,

    I was reading through and saw the YouTube video.

    Is this all back-end? I'd like a way to display a list of board members on the main website! Maybe using a grid like system to display all the rows and colums.

    Is this possible?

    Hi @franzvz,

    Currently all the plugin's features are back-end features. If you have some coding experience you should be able to make it work though. Every board member will have the role "board_member" in the WordPress users system. You can use the built-in get_users() function to pull all the board members and display them on the screen. Take a look at http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_users for more information on that function. If you have trouble don't hesitate to reach out.

    Any chance you will integrate this into the Plugin? What about a voting module? So BODs from around the world can vote on initiatives and have a record of votes?

    @WTP, we are definitely considering integrating it directly within the plugin, and have already written up a code snippet for a shortcode to display all the board members on the front-end of the website. You can find it at https://gist.github.com/jg314/7442631.

    If you take that code and place it in your theme's functions.php file, then add the text "[list_board_members]" to one of your pages, the board members should show up.

    I hope that's helpful. Let me know if you have any questions about it at all.

    @WTP, sorry, I just realized I didn't address the voting system. The voting system has absolutely been discussed and is on our list of potential additions. If more folks in the community ask for it, it would likely move it up on our priority list.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Thanks Jonathan for your fast reply. I hope others will request the voting option and a way to load attachments to the Board Resources.

    @WTP, No problem. For attachments, we recommend using a separate tool like Google Drive, Dropbox or Box to host files, then link to the files from the Board Resources section.

    It is possible to use the Media section of WordPress, the potential issue you run into is that those files will be viewable by the public as long as they have the link and search engines may pick them up. That's why we recommend using one of those external tools.

    Good luck with everything and if you have a second we'd love it if you could leave a review.

    Have a good one.

    Jonathan

    @WTP, we have officially added the shortcode into the lasted release. You will no longer need the code in your functions.php file. Let me know if you have any questions.
