    I have a table listing all particpants in an organization. I want to click on a single member name and pull up specific information on that member. I can show all them members and I have created a single page for the specific information with the [pdb_single] short code.

    Can anyone give me an example of the link to place in a link field to pull up a specific record?

    I am also getting an error messsage when setting up an email link - how should an email field be configured in the table?

    hi pfaucette,

    A email addres should just go into a 'text-line' field. It won't work with a link field...if I understand what you're trying to do.

    To set up the link to the individual record, you need to set up both the page the [pdb_single] shortcode is on, and which field to put the link on...like "first_name" or something.

    Dear xnau,

    I think I have the same problem; I just install your great plugin; I create a page with [Member Only] and it works fine. However, when I click the first names of 3 users, it only refresh the screen. Individual record is not coming up. Look like, it won't work that way. I am using WordPress 3.3.2 with themes "Atahualpa 3.7.6" You can visit http://www.cccjfl.org/wordpress and click Member Only, right on the Menu Bar, to see it. Would you show me step by step to set up the link to the individual record and set up both the page the [pdb_single] shortcode is on, and which field to put the link on...like "first_name" or something. Your documentation is few steps ahead of me. I know how to add new page and put {pdb_single="first_name"] under the content and publish. Other than that create a custom template looks like building rocket for me. Would you please be patient and show me how to do it.

    Thanks a lot and God Bless!

    Thank you for your help and God Bless!

    Charles,

    OK, follow these instructions:

    1. Go to the settings page, "General Settings" tab, and set the "Single Record Page" to the page where you want to display a single record.
    2. Place this shortcode on that page: [pdb_single] (just that , nothing more)
    3. Back to the settings page: set the "Single Record Link Field" to the field you want people to click on in order to see the record...like 'first_name' for instance

    That's it, go to your page that shows the list, and try it.
    The template for the single record is not too different from a regular WP template, so you can find many explanations around the web how to modify or create one. It is probably easier for you to just edit the CSS in your theme to make it look like you want.

    Hope this helps.
