hiding some data in wordpress: methods to accomplish this

Recommended Posts

Hello dear developer, hello dear user,



i run a plugin that works as a job-database – it is a plugin that is called participant-databaae; this plugin shows up;


employer with their adress: applicants with their data ? but: there is a set of sensible data like
– e-mail-adress
– adress: town, street, housenumer


Those sensible data should be hidden? for the non registered users of Participant database. see https://wordpress.org/plugins/participants-database/


Well – that Participants Database doesnt have a special "login"-feature:


In other words: There is no way to know if someone is a registered user or not – unless they are logged in to a user account on the site.  If we want to hide fields from users that are not logged in, there are two ways to go: we can use either a custom template or a PHP shortcode snippet – something like this:

$fields = 'first_name,last_name';
if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {
  $fields = 'first_name,last_name,email,address,city';
echo do_shortcode( '[pdb_single fields="' . $fields . '" ]' );

possible solutions,; we can make use use of a ?use PHP in the content? plugin or do this in a custom WP template.


question,  how would you solve this task!?


love to hear from you
