[Resolved] Directory of wordpress users?

  • Apologies if this is covered somewhere in documentation. I can’t see it.

    We’re looking for a front end searchable directory of registered wordpress users. If a user updates their user profile this should auto-update directory. We need additional fields to extend user profile eg ‘organisation’, ‘phone number’ etc

    Point being to have a single admin interface where users (subscribers) or site admin can update/add user details and this updates searchable directory.

    I’ve looked all over for something like this, (ternstyle’s plugin http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/members-list doesn’t work on 4.4.2) seems an obvious plugin to have but I can’t find one.

    Does your plugin, paid or free, do this?

    cheers

    Yes and no. Connections is a directory plugin that is separate from the site’s users. However, I just released an add-on called Link yesterday that does allow the linking of an entry in Connections to a specific user. So, you could do a whole lot more that just a member list. Just note, Connections does not extend the current user profile. The entries exists in their own table. I just wanted to be clear about that in case extending the user profile was an absolute requirement.

    thanks for quick reply,

    yes, extending user profile is an absolute requirement. If i manually code extra input (text, select, checkbox) fields to user profile would ‘Link/connections’ be able to display and search these fields?

    Single point of update is what we’re looking for. At present buddypress functionality seems best bet for this.

    cheers

    Connections would be able to search on the data linked to the user, which is not part of the user meta, but it does offer a single point of update with and without moderation.

    This question did give me an interesting idea for Link though. I wonder if it would be possible to inject the Connections entry details into the linked user meta so it can be retrieved and displayed using the WP built-in functions for user meta.

    @redsalmon
    I am also interested, were you able to find anything?
