I’m a WordPress developer from Birmingham, Alabama. I’m the creator and editor of Post Status.
This site has come about in part as a way for me to focus all of my custom WordPress plugin work in one location, but mainly as a resource that I hope will help to fill the gap in WordPress plugin development documentation. There are countless websites out there that post daily, weekly, or monthly tutorials and tips on WordPress development, but not a single one that focuses purely on Plugins.
Do you ever think you can be two people at once? Well, that’s me sometimes.

How to Create and Configure the Directory Page?
Automatically Created Directory Page
First of all, the plugin automatically creates the index page. This is a simple page which contains the shortcode [сmed_expert]
The link to this page can be found on above the plugin settings. The page is defined as the index page by specifying it in the option "Expert Index Page ID".
In the plugin settings, you can configure what should be displayed on the expert directory page - how many experts per page, search/sort/filter bars, pagination, etc.
And there are also settings for the expert directory appearance configuration - choosing the view style and options for each view style.
Manually Created Directory Page
The expert directory can be placed on any other post/page, and some global plugin parameters can be overridden with the help of the shortcode.
To display expert directory on the current page, we used the shortcode with the following parameters:
[сmed_expert view="directory-view" filter_expertise="1" filter_language="1" filter_tag="1" page_expert="5"]
For displaying, we used Expert Directory View, enabled custom taxonomy filters for expertise and language, and enabled the tags filter. We also defined to display maximum 5 experts per page.
You can see the full list of the shortcode parameters on the screenshot below:
