thanks to your case-study-series about user profile pages I was able to create custom fields for users, registration & login forms, a password-reset page and a profile-forms-page where a user can edit his own profile.
Now I want users to be able to see other users profiles and also to see the directory of all users on a site.
But I found the last article of the series too complicated for me.
Plus, I don't want to add new template files and no child-theme.
I'm building websites using one of these themes:
Twenty Twenty or Twenty Twenty One
and the for the block-editor only GenerateBlocks, KadenceBlocks and sometimes Otter (in case I need Lottie Animations).
On the site I'm working at I use Kadence Theme & Kadence Blocks (pro versions), so I can use their "Elements" feature, which allows me to hook elements anywhere on the page, e.g. after the content of a post.
Hence, instead of adding a new template, I'd prefer using the elements-feature of Kadence, create a section with a block that will show either a single user profile or a directory of user-profiles.
A similar feature like Elements is provided by GeneratePress Premium and it's even more powerful.
At the moment I struggle setting up a user-directory, where users see who else has a profile on a site, then click on a profile to open a single profile of another user.
Like I said, I want to try without any additional membership or user-profile-plugin, and also try without creating additional users-listing-page.php template files. It's very difficult for me, I'm not a programmer.
Any chance to help me out with this?
Thank you in advance and kind regards,
