Step 5: Creating A List Of Users and Profile Page

Now it is time to create a user directory page on our page. This can be as simple as a list of names with links to author profile pages or a full fledged directory with all of the user’s information.

Step 6: Additional Options

Before finishing we will learn how to restrict access to the user directory and limit which users will be in the directory. We will also cover other methods for getting the values of fields that are better suited for when we only need one or two of the fields at a time.


That’s the end of the tutorial and its time for you to customize and extend this code to meet your needs. I give some ideas for taking this further, but I’d love to know what you come up with. Whatever it is, share the results and the code.

Step 2: Add Fields To Users

While WordPress’ built-in user profiles offer only limited fields, Pods will allow for pretty much anything we need to be added to profiles. In this tutorial we will be using plain text, number, phone number, website and avatar fields.
