    Hi, I’m a little disappointed in this app. I thought it would be able to list committees as well without having people to sign in and go to the dashboard. Currently I am able to place a page under the member section for a list of board members, but I can’t find a short code to do this with the committees. Again, I don’t want people to have to sign into and go to the dashboard. I would prefer to have a submenu link on the front page.

    Is there a short code to list the committees?

    Thanks
    Donna

    Hi Donna,

    It is possible to list the committees for each board member, but you’ll need to have some comfort with basic theme coding to make it work. Here are the basic steps:

    1. Copy the list-board-members.php file into your current theme’s folder from the plugin’s templates folder.
    2. Uncomment line #32 so the committees for each board member are saved in a variable.
    3. Display the committees by writing the PHP code echo $committees; where you want them to be displayed. Make sure you wrap the PHP code in <?php ?> if it isn’t already.

    It’s worth noting that this will display the committees for each board member, but it won’t break them into groups by committee. That would take a decent amount more from a coding perspective.

    Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

    Hi Jonathan,
    Thanks for responding. I understand what you need me to do but it won’t do what I want. I do want them broken into groups by committees.

    Unfortunately, I will have to create this page by hand. Which means, I might as well list the board members by hand as well and deactivate the program. I was so hopeful. However I need something more robust for our boards and committees without users having to sign into the backend to view.

    Thank you for your time
    Donna

    Thanks for the explanation and I’m sorry the plugin won’t get you the functionality you need. The plugin was really built as more of an internal tool for board members to work together. The frontend listings are not a major part of the functionality.

    Good luck.
