    Hello Turnpiece

    Please try the following code:

    add_shortcode( 'show_members', 'show_members_cb' );
    function show_members_cb( $atts ) {
        $atts = shortcode_atts(
                'id' => 0
        if( $atts['id'] == 0 ) {
            return 'You need to provide a membership ID';
        $args = array(
            'membership_id' => $atts['id'],
            'subscription_status' => 'active'
        $members = MS_Model_Member::get_members( $args );
        $html = '<table cellpadding="5" cellspacing="5">';
            $html .= '<tr>';
                $html .= '<th>User ID</th>';
                $html .= '<th>Username</th>';
                $html .= '<th>Display Name</th>';
            $html .= '</tr>';
        foreach( $members as $member ) {
            $html .= '<tr>';
                $html .= '<td>' . $member->id . '</td>';
                $html .= '<td>' . $member->username . '</td>';
                $html .= '<td>' . $member->name . '</td>';
            $html .= '</tr>';
        $html .= '</table>';
        return $html;

    You can use this code in your theme's functions.php if the theme is not changed. Otherwise mu-plugin is the best option. To create a mu-plugin, go to wp-content/mu-plugins folder. If there is no mu-plugins folder then, create one. Now, inside the mu-plugins folder create file with name anything.php (make sure file extension is .php). Now start with a <?php tag and then put the above code.

    And then use the shortcode like this:

    [show_members id="1234"]

    Where 1234 is the membership ID.

    Hope it helps! Please feel free to ask more questions if you have any.

    Have a nice day!
