Support » Plugin: Simple Staff List » How to Add Fields

  • Resolved kdsamra


    Hi Brett,

    I love the plugin but I was wondering how I could add extra fields to the staff list. I would need to add several fields to each person’s profile (in addition to the phone, email, bio, etc.).

    I was trying to see where I would make the changes in the php scripts, I thought I found it but it only added a column to the admin view of all the staff. I guess I need to make changes to several parts of the script. If you can let me know where I need to make the changes I can amend the PHP accordingly.

    Hi Brett,

    Thanks for the quick response. I wish there were an easier way but I will give it a try and see if I can make it work. I think I would also need to add the new fields to simple-staff-list.php, right? So that the fields would show up in the Staff Members admin view.

    If you are looking for new ideas for your next release, the ability to add additional fields would be awesome. Also, if we could export all the staff members data to a CSV and maybe even import via CSV, the plugin would be perfect.

    Thanks again for your help.


    Hi Brett,

    This is a great plugin!

    I have tried your tips to add a new field and i did it. But when i click update, the data couldn’t be saved for the new field.

    Please advice.

    Hi Brett,

    I guess i have solved the problem (to save the data). But, when i want to display the data at the front-end (user view), it shows “1” instead of the data that i key-in.

    Please help and thanks again your awesome plugin!
