Simple Intranet Directory
[resolved] Display Bio Names as list (2 posts)

    Hello, first- Thanks for your plugin.

    This is what we are trying to do and it's worked for the most part.

    We are trying to make a list of people. We want to be able to track this similar to a post. So, we've used your plugin.

    Because we (the admin) are listing people, we don't want to make users for each of these. So we have added our own Bio's without users. However the short code [employees] doesn't display anything but our username (the admin). Is there a way, shortcode or similar, that can display the BIO titles, which are their names?

    Mmmm... interesting idea. Well, currently the plugin is coded so that a user profile record is required to show/display an avatar, first/last name, title, department etc when using the [employees] shortcode. So the short answer to your question is I suppose no. You can't create just Biographies without a corresponding user record. Creating just a bio (via the custom post type we use) would not populate the bio post title (name).
