Display list of users and descriptions
I was using a plugin to kinda do what I needed, but it broke with the newest version of WordPress, so ideally I’d like to do this without a plugin, to avoid this in the future.
What I need is to display a list of all users who have something in their description/bio area of their profile, also displaying that text, of course. I also need to display the full name and email address.
I thought I could just query the database but now that I see there are two databases that handle this information, I’m lost.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
Which plugin were you using previously? Perhaps the author is on the case and will issue a fix soon? Could it be worth shooting them an email to ask?
It’s called People Lists, I believe. And maybe, but originally I wanted to do it this way, anyway. Plus, with that, I had to manually drag people to the list, if I can just display fro the database anyone with a description, then I won’t have to worry about doing it, it will be automatic.
I’ve been looking for a way to display a list of users as well. It would be nice to be able to query their avatar, display name and description, but like Anela said, “there are two databases … I’m lost.”
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
there are two databases
No there aren’t. 1 WP install = 1 database. Perhaps you meant 2 tables?
Yes, sorry. Two tables … I just copied and pasted what Anela said. Do you have any ideas on our issue though?
That’s exactly what I wanted to try, but I didn’t want to spend hours chasing my tail if it didn’t work. Since you have corroborated that thought, I may try it if what I am trying right now does not. Thanks Esmi!
At the moment, if any is interested, I am using Justin Tadlock’s method seen here (it seems to work for my situation):
Good luck Anela.
