How it Works

WordPress Plugin Staff List Birthdays – How it Works

Prerequisites

  • Staff List Pro plugin have to be installed and activated.
  • Staff member records have to be added.
  • The date fields (DOB or hire date) have to populated.
  • Date field can set up as hidden (Hide/Delete option).
Why hidden fields: You may not want to display DOB or hire dates on the staff page but still have them available for querying data. Birthdays plugin can use hidden fields as filters and display them when needed.

How it Works

The process is similar to creating staff templates. The main difference being that there is no data entry. Upcoming event fields are linked to staff fields and have only formatting options. All data comes from staff members.
  • There are two template types: Birthdays and Anniversaries.
  • Birthdays plugin extension provides visual formatting options but all data comes from staff list members.
  • It displays a subset of records filtered by date range.
  • Only field type date can be used as filter.
  • You have full control over the number of days into the future and in the past.
  • Results can be displayed on dedicated page, sidebar or as a section of the page.
  • To add upcoming events to any page or post – just insert a shortcode.
  • Once created, the page will be auto populated with matching records.
