On demand filtering on a new field

You want to filter by a field not currently displayed?

(requires amr-users-plus)

  1. Display the field
  2. Define the filtering
  3. Rebuild cache
  4. Location of filter html (optional)

Display the field

  • Enter a column number in the display order column for the “First Role”
  • Click update field settings
  • Click Rebuild cache to be sure field shows

This tells the plugin you want to use that field in that list and where to display it.

Enter number to define field display and sequence

Edit Filtering

Handles custom roles and users with no roles in the current db (possibly due to shared user tables)

Edit Filtering

  • Click “Edit Filtering”,
  • Choose “column value” option for ‘first role”
  • Click Update Filtering
  • Click Rebuild cache now

List will show with filter but role values will not be there – plugin hasn’t had a chance to  ‘save’ them for filtering yet

Choose filter options for fields you want to filter, leave blank for no filtering

Rebuild cache after updating filtering

The plugin will use this rebuild to save the possible values of role in your db, including any custom roles, but excluding any for which there are NO  users.

If  values (eg roles) and users with those values (roles) are added over time – a rebuild cache will find and add them.  The filter should now be visible with values for existing users.

Filter values should now be visible – the values shown depend on the data in your database.

Rebuild the cache

  • just making sure….. if you do not see the values, then rebuild the cache!
  • still don’t see all values you expect to see ? Is there a user with that value ? No ? Create/update and rebuild the cache.
