    Is there a way to show multiple roles at once using one line of shortcode? I know I can create two lines but then I get the search box and the listings are in mixed alphabetical order (one list in alpha, followed by another list in alpha)

    I believe you can just separate the roles with a comma.

    [userlist role="outfield,infield"]

    But per the docs on WP_User_Query the only users shown will be users that match both the provided roles. In reading the docs it looks like WP_User_Query supports role__in and role__not_in which I will try to add support for eventually.

    Thanks for your quick reply. You’re right about the user needing both roles. The trouble is, I have two sets of users with different and exclusive roles. Is there a way to turn off the search capability for now?

    I’d say it’s in the FAQ, because it is, but I’ve just realized that it’s wrong.

    This is what it will be after the next update:

    function remove_SUL_search(){
        remove_action( 'simple_user_listing_before_loop', array( Simple_User_Listing::get_instance(), 'add_search' ) );
    }
    add_action( 'simple_user_listing_before_loop', 'remove_SUL_search', 5 );

    If you need it right now, then this should do it:

    function remove_SUL_search(){
    	global $simple_user_listing;
        remove_action( 'simple_user_listing_before_loop', array( $simple_user_listing, 'add_search' ) );
    }
    add_action( 'simple_user_listing_before_loop', 'remove_SUL_search', 5 );

    Thanks. I’m not a WordPress developer, so I’m uncertain where this code would go. Would I put it into a custom template copied from SUL? Any idea when the next release would come out?

    It would go in your theme’s functions.php file. No promised on the next release. I am hoping for next week, but all my paid plugins and clients take priority over this plugin so while it is on my to-do list it is at the very bottom. The new version will be back-compatible with the second snippet so that one is pretty safe for now and the immediate future.

    Thanks for the info and quick reply.
