Support » Plugin: Project Status » [Plugin: Project Status] Assigning project to a specific user.

  • Hi,

    It’s a great little plugin, many thanks! One thing it lacks – imo substantial functionality – is the ability to assign a project to a specific (logged in) user of the site. It would allow easy integration with membership sites.

    I’ve managed to do it by custom page template (update proof) but I think it would be beneficial to have this available as a switchable shortcode option. (something like [project id=auto])

    Here’s a chunk of code I’ve used in page template for automatic project selection:

    <?php wp_get_current_user(); ?>
       $current_user_email = $current_user->user_email;
       $projects_query = new WP_Query( 'post_type=client_projects' );
       while ( $projects_query->have_posts() ) : $projects_query->the_post();
          $custom_project_data = get_post_custom($post->ID);
          $project_owner_email = $custom_project_data["pjsp_client_email"][0];
          if ($project_owner_email == $current_user_email) {
             $current_project_shortcode = '[project id=' . $post->ID . ']';
    <?php wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
    <?php echo do_shortcode( $current_project_shortcode ) ?>

    For this to work you need to uncomment line 123 in project-status.php and assign user e-mail address from specific user profile to Client E-mail field in Notifiy Client Tab on your project page.

    Line 123:    add_meta_box("project_update","Notify Client", "project_update","client_projects","normal","low");

    Then it will select select project based on currently logged in user email address and e-mail address from Notify Client tab on a user page.

    Hope you guys going to consider adding something like that to your plugin in a shortcode form.

  • Hi,

    I would like to use your plugin. How can I use the code? Do I have to create plugin folder? or do you have instruction on how to use the code?


    Is it also possible to show the page to the administrator? So it can be viewed by the administrator and the specific user?
