GD Members Directory 2.0 for bbPress

GD Members Directory for bbPress is available now as a Free plugin. With that change, the new major version has improved codebase using namespacing and autoloading, has various updates, updates, and fixes.

The plugin was released last year as a Premium plugin only, but it has been rarely updated, because it is a very simple plugin, and there are no plans to add any new features. Because of that, I have decided to change the plugin status, and from today, the plugin is available for free, and there will be no Pro license anymore.

The new version has completely rewritten code base, using namespacing and autoloading, and it is built on top of the Dev4Press Shared Code Library 3.3. It includes various improvements and a few fixes. And, to reintroduce plugin, here is the original post content.

Members Directory Page with bbPress 2.6

The plugin adds a new major page in the bbPress for listing all forums users with filters and ordering options. The plugin takes the user slug from bbPress settings and generates the new type of page where the member’s directory is displayed. So, if your forum is set to use ‘users’ slug for Users pages like this:

Then, the member’s directory will have this URL:

The directory page included filters and sorting controls. You can filter the results by user role and an optional keyword for searching the users. Sorting controls include several fields you can use to search users by. The plugin has few settings to control rewrite rules for the directory page, query for listing users, and few other things. The plugin also includes a widget for listing members in a similar way as the main directory page does, but will fewer data and a limited number of users.

The plugin has templates and styling for default bbPress templates and for the templates provided for the GD Quantum Theme Pro plugin. You can see the plugin in action with the bbPress supports forum here. If you have suggestions for the plugin future versions, please let me know.

  1. Hi,
    Is this why my wp-admin updates, and also the Dev4Press updater is reporting that I have version 2 with an update available to v1.1?

    Should I uninstall the Pro plugin and install the free one from the WP repositry?
