Displays a profile value (meta) of a user, including standard WordPress meta values such as display_name.


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.



To display the town/city of the user:

[wps-usermeta meta="wpspro_home"]

To display the county of the user:

[wps-usermeta meta="wpspro_country"]

To display a Google map, assuming the user has entered a town/city and country, you could use the following shortcode:

[wps-usermeta meta="wpspro_map" size="400,400" style="dynamic" zoom="6"]

This shortcode also supports the custom profile fields that you add with the Profile Extensions plugin, part of the WP Symposium Pro Extensions plugin.

The use of Profile Extensions is covered elsewhere and can be displayed with [wps-extended], but you could for example, show your saved value of a profile extension with the slug of “my-field” with the following shortcode:

[wps-usermeta meta="my-field"]


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.

Label   (label=””)
Meta value   (meta=”wpspro_home”)

Size   (size=”250,250″)
