Shortcodes Ultimate
[resolved] Feature Request: [members] and [nonmembers] (5 posts)

    Hi Vladimir,

    I found a little plugin called MemberView which provides two useful shortcodes: [mv] and [nmv]. I'm writing to ask if you would consider adding something like this to Shortcodes Ultimate. Here's what the MemberView shortcodes do.

    The [mv]...[/mv] shortcode encloses content which is to be displayed only to logged in users. If the user is not logged in, it displays nothing at all. Unlike your [members] shortcode, [mv] does not prompt the user to log in, which is exactly what I need for some applications. If you were to add a new parameter to [members], you could do this too:

    [members login="false"]...[/members]

    could replicate the functionality of [mv]...[/mv] while a default of

    [members login="true"]...[/members]

    could replicate your current functionality (for backwards compatibility).

    The [nmv]...[/nmv] shortcode encloses content which is to be displayed only to users who are not logged in. If the user is logged in, it displays nothing at all. You could replicate this functionality with a new shortcode like

    [nonmembers]...[/nonmembers]

    If you were to incorporate these features into Shortcodes Ultimate, I could decrease my plugin count by two! (I must use the Outerbridge Nested Shortcodes plugin with MemberView, as I explained here.)

    Would you be willing to consider adding these new features to Shortcodes Ultimate?

    Thank you so much,

    Fred

    Hi Fred,

    I was coded this feature tonight, and now awaiting for Hebrew and German translations. Then I will release new version with new shortcode [guests] and new parameter for members - [members login="0|1"]

    Thanks so much, Vladimir! I'm now in the process of switching over from the MemberView plugin to the features you added to your plugin, and the new features work beautifully. I really appreciate your willingness to incorporate suggestions from your loyal users! :)

    Thanks again,

    Fred
