Frontend User Dashboard

A- A+

To utilize the user dashboard first configure the global settings as you like from wp-dashboard→User Frontend→Settings→Dashboard.

The Dashboard page has all global settings for user dashboards for your site. To learn about configuring this page, read this documentation.

Configuring Frontend User Dashboards

A user can see all his posts in his WPUF user dashboard.

  1. Create a page, e.g. Dashboard.
  2. To use single post type, insert this shortcode in the body of the page [wpuf_dashboard post_type="post_type_name"].
  3. To allow multiple post types insert this shortcode: [wpuf_dashboard post_type="post_type_name, custom_post_type_name"].

Note: Alongside with existing previous attributes you can pass any attributes which accept WP_Query ( add this link for WP_Query except for attributes which accept multiple values i.e author__in, category__in which named used ‘__ ’. this shortcode accept author_in & category__in where you can pass username & category name in comma separated value. For example

[wpuf_dashboard category=‘on’ orderby=‘date’ order=‘desc’ post_type=‘post’ author__in=‘test_expiry,another_author’ category__in=‘small shirts,shirts,new term,abcd’].

Customize Dashboard with Attributes

Now admin can customize the dashboard according to his needs by using some newly added attributes like ‘form_id' ,  ‘category' , ‘featured_image' , ‘meta'  or ‘excerpt' .

Admin can show only the posts of their preferred form by adding the form id’s inside [wpuf_dashboard] shortcode. As example, then we can show only the posts of certain forms with id 101, 102 then admin can use the shortcode as [wpuf_dashboard form_id="101"]. This shortcode will output default posts of WPUF Forms that contain id=101.

If you want to show custom posts of a specific form, then you have to use post_type attribute along with the form id. Example: [wpuf_dashboard form_id="99" post_type="product"]

Meta keys can be shown as [wpuf_dashboard meta="meta_key1, meta_key2"].

Category of the post can be shown as [wpuf_dashboard category="on"]. Featured images can be shown by [wpuf_dashboard featured_image="on"]. Excerpts can be shown as [wpuf_dashboard excerpt="on"].

Payment column attribute on Dashboard

The Payment attribute on Dashboard will be by default turned on. To turn the Payment column off, add the following shortcode to your Dashboard page: [wpuf_dashboard payment_column="off"]. And to turn it on again, use the following shortcode: [wpuf_dashboard payment_column="on"].

You can use this shortcode for any custom post type like events, products, etc. in the following way:
[wpuf_dashboard post_type=“event” payment_column="on"]

Frontend View Settings

To configure how many posts will be displayed in a page, you can configure the settings at Settings→Dashboard→ Posts per page. There are other settings also for dashboard.

  • You can show the user bio in dashboard
  • Show the count of posts.
  • Show featured image and set the size to display.

This completes the configuration.
