  • Resolved nilsbangkok


    Hello community,

    maybe you know this very helpful function pods_by_current_user. For another project it was working fine but for my current project its not working.

    Belong to this post I created a pods_by_current_user.php and uploaded to the plugins-folder. I also tried directly in the function.php but this was also not helping.

    I used this code

    function pods_by_current_user($atts, $content = null) {
    if ( ! function_exists( 'wp_get_current_user' ) )
            return 0;
        $user = wp_get_current_user();
    $user_id = ( isset( $user->ID ) ? (int) $user->ID : 0 );
    $atts[ 'where' ] = 'post_author = ' . (int) $user_id;
    return pods_shortcode( $atts, $content );
    function register_shortcodes() {
    add_shortcode('pods_by_current_user', 'pods_by_current_user');
    add_action( 'init', 'register_shortcodes');

    And this is the shortcode I am using:

    [pods name=”Aufgabe” pods_by_current_user where=”bearbeitungsstand.meta_value = ‘offen'” template=”Aufgabenübersicht”]

    Here are two screenshots… I hope its working. The task “Aufgabe Chris” is created by another user and I should not see this.

    Does anybody see my mistake? I am quite new user and its not easy to understand all. I am very thankful to everyone who help me with this.

    That shortcode doesn’t look correct, are you sure that’s it? Shouldn’t it be: [pods_by_current_user name=”Aufgabe” where=”bearbeitungsstand.meta_value = ‘offen'” template=”Aufgabenübersicht”]

    Also if you plan on passing arguments to the other shortcode function such as ‘where’, you’ll probably want to check if $atts['where'] has a value already and append to it with an AND.
