Looking For Something?



Displays a directory of your site members. For distance to work with a user, it requires that user to have saved their profile via Edit Profile with Town/City and Country.


Provided in the Core Plugin.


You can use the global shortcode settings via WPS Pro->Shortcodes in the admin dashboard, or add them to the shortcode as options.

For some characters (character sets), you will need to make sure that you have installed WordPress with correct character set.

If you have problems, you might try changing the following setting in wp-config.phps: define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ”); and you might need to add something like <meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=iso-8859-1″ /> to your theme header.

You can also include profile extensions in your member directory if you have the Extensions plugin, see here on how to do that


Show the directory, as a table style:

[wps-directory style="table"]


The following (which shows default values and an example of using the shortcode option) can be set via the admin dashboard (WPS Pro->Shortcodes) or added as options to the shortcode in your WordPress page, post or widget.
