What other shortcodes can I use in this directory?

The text in the “” can be edited.

  • [member_table] – Displays the member directory
  • [member_table_url] – Displays a link to a page that would return member data in a JSON format
  • [member_table limit="number"] – Limits the number of records displayed in the directory. By default, all records display in the directory.
  • [member_table display_members_only="0 or 1"] – If 1, displays only records where the customer’s Receives Benefits Flag is true. If 0, displays all customers. By default, all records display in the directory.
  • [member_table display_fields="fields"] – Specify which fields are displayed in the member directory in which order. By default, the display_fields="first name, last name, title, email, city, state"
  • [member_table_ignore_do_not_display_online="0 or 1"] – If 1, displays all records regardless if the customer’s Ignore Do Not Display Online field is True. By default, the directory displays records where the Ignore Do Not Display Online field is False.
  • [member_table color="" thead_color="" tfoot_color=""] – Use thead_color and tfoot_color to update the color of the table header and table footer, respectively. As a shortcut, you can also use color to update the color of both the table header and footer.

Each of these shortcode fields can be combined to style the directory.
Example: [member_table limit=50 display_members_only=1 display_fields="firstname, email"] will display:

  • 50 records
  • Member Flag = True
  • List only First Name, Email
