Support » Plugin: Participants Database » Personal Info Group

  • Resolved traceyweb


    I need people to register so they can add new entries and so I created a page with the signup shortcode. The only way I could get the signup form to show fields was to add Name and email to the Personal Info group and tick Sign up. However, this information shows on the participant record page which means anyone who views the participant list can see it.

    In the Field Groups tab there’s an option to untick display for the Personal info, but if it’s not ticked it doesn’t display in the form.

    Am I missing something or is it not possible to do this? I can’t give a URL to the page as it requires a login to view the content.

    There are two ways to do this. You can put the fields you don’t want shown in a group that has the “public” checkbox unchecked. To get the field to show up in the signup form, use the “fields” attribute in the shortcode and list all the fields you want included in the form, like this:

    [pdb_signup fields="first_name,last_name,email,phone"]

    The other way to go is to control which fields are shown in the [pdb_single] shortcode, also with the “fields” or “groups” attribute.

    Thank you. The first way worked. 🙂
