Dynamic User Directory (free)

This lightweight yet feature-rich WordPress plugin creates a formatted user directory based on the pre-existing user meta fields. It can show avatars, social media icons, mailing address, email address, website, phone, and just about any other user meta information you wish. It is highly customizable, easy to configure, and fully compatible with meta fields created by BuddyPress, S2Member, Cimy User Extra Fields plugins, or any other custom user meta plugin that stores its fields in the wp_usermeta table.

Before You Buy Please Be Aware:
* DUD currently supports only the English language.
* DUD & its add-ons let you show, sort on, and search most BuddyPress extended profile fields. But please note that DUD is not integrated with all BuddyPress membership functionalities such as field privacy settings or which members are online. It is also currently not integrated with the 3rd party BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Field Types plugin. I plan to integrate many of these in the future as time permits.
Pre-Sales Questions and Post-Sales Support: Please contact me via email regarding the DUD add-ons, because WordPress only permits the forums to be used for plugins that it hosts. Kindly bear in mind that I do not have a support team to answer questions. I strive to respond promptly, but due to my schedule I am sometimes unable to reply right away. But I will usually get back to you within a few days.

  COMING SOON
* MemberPress "remove hyphens" field mask: Several users have reported that MemberPress forces the values of certain field types to be hyphenated. These values often need to be shown in the directory. DUD will soon have a field mask to remove hyphens and captialize the first letter of each word in the directory display.
* New Exclude User Filter Feature: I will soon be adding the ability to exclude users based on WooCommerce memberships!
* New Custom Sort Add-on Features: including sort in reverse order or random order, hide the "last name" field (ideal for showing a business name meta field first instead), option to show alphabet letter links instead of category links.

NEW! Exclude User Filter ($10.00)

This invaluable add-on lets you exclude users from the directory in several different ways:

(1) Based on your own custom meta field, such as an "Opt out of directory" checkbox. Your field may be a radio, checkbox, text field, or dropdown. Available conditionals you may use to check the field include: equal to, not equal to, empty, not empty, selected, not selected, contains, and does not contain.

(2) Additional BuddyPress options: hide users if they are inactive, have a last activity date older than x amount of days, or are marked as spammer.

(3) Additional MemberPress options: hide users with no active memberships, who have a particular subscription plan, who have no recurring subscriptions, or who have a subscription in pending, paused, or cancelled status.

I'll be adding options for other membership plugins as time permits. If you'd like me to include your membership plugin, you can email me your request if the following is true: (a) Your membership plugin has a sizable user base (b) You can provide a development site with the membership plugin installed so I can code and test your requested filter features. Required: Dynamic User Directory 1.5.1 or later.


Custom Sort Field ($12.00)

This powerful add-on lets you sort on any user meta field, rather than just last name or display name. Display the custom sort field categories at the top of the directory as links, an auto-refresh dropdown, or an additional search field dropdown. Fully integrated with ALL the DUD add-ons! The demos below are just a few of the many possible configurations your custom sorted directory can have when paired with other add-ons. Required: Dynamic User Directory 1.4.7 or later.

Demo 1 | Settings Basic letter links directory sorted by department.
Demo 2 | Settings Basic single page directory sorted by department + Alpha Links Scroll
Demo 3 | Settings Single page directory sorted by department + Alpha Links Scroll + Meta Fields Search w/custom sort categories as an extra search field.
Demo 4 | Settings Single page directory sorted by department + Hide Dir Before Search + Alpha Links Scroll + Meta Fields Search w/custom sort categories as extra search field.
Demo 5 | Settings Letter links directory sorted by department with Meta Fields Search + Horizontal Layout.
Demo 6 | Settings Letter links directory sorted by department with auto refresh dropdown instead of links.
Demo 7 | Settings Letter links directory sorted by department with search field instead of letter links + Hide Dir Before Search.

IMPORTANT NOTES

* This add-on is NOT compatible with the S2Member framework, due to the way S2Member stores its meta fields. It IS compatible with ALL other membership plugins that currently work with the DUD plugin.
* This add-on currently requires the sort field to be a standard text field or drop-down box. That means meta fields stored as arrays, such as checkboxes, radio buttons, or multiselect boxes, will NOT work with this add-on.
* This add-on allows for one sort field category per user. For example, if your sort field is "department," each user should be assigned to only one department, rather than to multiple departments.
* Since you will be sorting the directory on this field, all field values in your custom sort field should *begin* with an alphabetic character. You can, however, have special characters elsewhere in the field.

Hide Directory Before Search ($7.00)

This add-on hides the directory listings until a search is run. This is especially useful for sites needing a search-oriented directory. After installation, the Dynamic User Directory settings page will contain a new check box in the Main Directory Settings section for hiding or showing the directory before a search is run. Required: Dynamic User Directory 1.3.7 or later.

Alpha Links Scroll ($7.00)

This add-on displays alphabet links on the Single Page Directory that will smoothly scroll to the matching letter divider.* No more manual scrolling through a long list of names -- simply click on a letter link at the top and let the browser do the work. The result is both user-friendly and visually impressive! Once activated, this add-on needs no further configuration. Required: Dynamic User Directory 1.2.8 or later.

Alpha Links Scroll Demo
*Note: Your Single Page directory must be set to display letter dividers for the scrolling to work.
Multiple Directories ($8.00)

This add-on allows you to create up to 50 additional instances of the directory on your website, each with its own display settings. Perfect for creating public and members-only versions of your directory! After installation, the Dynamic User Directory settings page will contain a new "Directory Instances" section at the top for adding a new instance or loading an existing one.

Required: Dynamic User Directory 1.2.8 or later. If you have the Meta Fields Search add-on, make sure it is updated to 1.1 or later. If you have the Alpha Links Scroll add-on, make sure it is 1.2 or later.
Demo: Directory Instance #1 - Single Page Directory w/multiple search fields
Demo: Directory Instance #2 - Letter Links Directory w/one search field

Meta Fields Search ($10.00)

This add-on provides powerful filter capabilities, allowing viewers to search the directory by any  user meta fields you specify in the settings. It comes with two different search types:

(1) Single Meta Field Search - displays a dropdown beside the search box listing the possible meta fields to search on (e.g. City, State, Zip, etc). Searches only within the selected meta field for the entered value.
(2) General Meta Field Search - displays a single search box (with optional placeholder text) and automatically looks for the entered value within all the meta fields specified in the settings. Please note this currently does *not* allow for searching on multiple different meta fields at the same time.
After installation, the Dynamic User Directory settings page will contain a new "User Meta Search Field Settings" section at the bottom for configuring up to fifteen search fields. Required: Dynamic User Directory 1.2.8 or later.
Demo Example #1 - Meta Field Search
Demo Example #2 - General Search

Horizontal Layout ($10.00)

This add-on gives you the option of showing your directory listings in a horizontal layout. Highly customizable with plenty of features including optional column header labels and alternating table row stripes, plus adjustable directory width, column widths, and cell padding. Fully responsive design and fully compatible with the other DUD add-ons! Required: Dynamic User Directory 1.3.8 or later.

Horizontal Directory Demo A - Five column directory on page with sidebar
Horizontal Directory Demo B - Seven column directory on full size page
