    Hello,

    It would be a great feature, if I could set different categories for featured members, like:
    – Seller
    – Leader
    – Specialist
    or something else.

    So you can show featured members in different categories and not all members in one loop.

    Kind regards

    Hi,
    Thank you for posting.

    I am sorry but if I understand correctly, It is more like you want to create user lists. Since the plugin does not save details about a list name, It won’t be feasible to create multiple lists.

    However it is possible to display multiple lists based on role/member types. If that works for you, Please do let me know, I can add a role selector in the widget.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hello,

    Yes, you’re right. I wanted to display multiple lists based on role/member types.

    Is it also possible to set featured members from the backend, not only from the frontend?

    Kind regards

    Hi,
    Thank you. I will release an update of the plugin today to allow filtering with roles/types.

    I am sorry but the marking functionality is not available in the backend it. If I found enough time, I will put a checkbox today to add users from the backend.

    Thank you

    Hi,
    The update is available now.

    It will allow you to filter the list by BuddyPress member types. We had to skip on WordPress roles since the bp_has_members() does not accept the role parameter. We could use BP_User_Query but that will break the Theme view.

    Thank you

    Hello,

    After Update to the version 1.0.2. I don’t see any filter-option in the widget.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Waldemar,

    It is only visible if you have some member types registered. Do you have any member type registered on your site?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    I don’t have registered any member type, because I’m using different User Roles.

    Kind regards,
    Waldemar

    Hi Waldemar,
    I am sorry. As I explained in a previous reply, bp_has_members() doess support roles. We I skipped on roles and only supported the member types out of the box.

    You can still do it for roles using BP_User_Query but you will have to write your own loops. If we did it in the plugin, we will loose one of the views(Theme default), so we had to skip on that.

    Hope that clarifies. If you want, I can post here an example of the loop using one of the roles.

    Thank you
    Brajesh
