PauPress - A CRM for WordPress
[resolved] Just show some categories (2 posts)

    As some of you might have noticed in this forum the past few weeks, I've been looking for a plugin of some sort that allows me to have users register, and then let other users do searches on my site where the fields of the users registration-form is indexed along side all the other information on my site.... and then I found PauPress! :))))

    PauPress seem to have all the features I need for my demo-site (which is key for us to sell our idea and get our project funded)but there is something I can't get my head wrapped around.

    I tried to create a field of my own in the register-form, and this field is supposed to have a radio-button list of different job-titles. (Has to be multi-choice because some people have more than one skill)
    I tried over and over again, but it won't list it. Only the last input will show when I go to "My Profile" to see how it looks. (Some other fields will not show either, such as address.)

    But then I "surrendered" and dragged the "Categories" box into the first coulmn section and with all my job-titles registered as tags in my WP-categories I'm happy to say that they now show! But so does ALL the other categories I have on my site..... This is NOT what I want :(

    I love this plugin, and have tried for days now to make this "interaction" between registration and search-function work out.

    Could someone plz help me out here? I'm at my wits end now... :/

    hi there MonMidt.

    glad you love the plugin - thanks for the kind words.

    If you don't want to use "Categories" but need the checkbox functionality for multiple selections, create a new field, call it what you want and select the type of "Taxonomy." Save your options and then go back to edit the field and you'll be able to add as many checkboxes as you like.

    Sorry this is a bit less-than-obvious but it's a pretty neat feature because what we've done is applied the native WordPress means of tagging and categorizing that you use for posts to users. So, for example, you could have users check all of the categories on your site that they might be interested in.

    When you create a new taxonomy, you're essentially creating a private, user-profile-only "category" that is then searchable alongside all the other fields.

    Hope this helps you out and, just for good measure, here's the related documentation link:
