Can I create private and public views of Directory information?


I am thinking of using Directory with Membership and Supporter. I need to be able to give people their own web space which I think I can do with the last two. I was thinking of using Directory for the current 700 members of an organisation and then for any new members. Some of the information needs to be publicly available but private information needs to be available easily behind the scenes to the administration such as date of birth, country of origin, work permit, account etc.Would that be possible with Directory? It would save me a lot of time if I could.

    Hiya Lugh,

    You might find that CustomPress actually provides more of what you need. With CustomPress you can create custom fields for all of that information and set it all to have a custom slug in the URL. Then with membership, you can make everything with that slug private to a specific level so that only certain folks can see it.

    You definitely could use the listing plugin, but you'll have to customize it to add for specific fields like date of birth, etc.

    Would that do what you're looking for? Thanks!

    I've had discussions since and now just producing the public side of things so that after someone is registered the directory listing gets done. So life got a little easier or at least I think so. I will look at CustomPress in case I need it on some other project.

    Many thanks for your help.
