Member listing/directory URL parameter help #membership #customize


 

Hello folks,

Is there a Wiki or how-to link on how to modify the URL parameter setup on the member screens?  And is there anyway that defaults for these can be set, or they have to be entered each time? (in which case, bookmarking will take care of that)
 
For example, https://<groupURL>/members?p=joined,pending,,20,2,0,0

I figured out a few of these parameters but not sure on the rest, and what values can be used on them, and I'd like to find out so I can create bookmarks for quick use.

This is what I've figured out so far by trial and error and (developer) educated guess:


?p=P1,P2,P3,P4,P5,P6,P7

P1: List display sorting criteria; allowable values are joined (DateApplied), delivery (EmailDeliveryType), email (EmailAddy), fullname (DisplayName); if blank or none of these, default is joined (SortAscending-oldest first)

P2: Who to display; allowable values are: members, mods, pending, bouncing, banned, removed; if blank or none of these, default is members.

P3: ???

P4: How many entries/rows to display per page; no blank is allowed***, if 0, default is 20.

P5: Sorting order for P1; allowable values are: 1 (SortAscending-oldest first) or 2 (SortDescending-newest first), no blank is allowed***, if 0, default is 2.

P6: ???

P7: ???

*** if this parameter is blank, the list returns no rows.


Thanks for any help!

Cheers,
Christos

No.  But, as you've discovered, many of them can be figured out by watching what appears as you select various display modes.  I do that on pages sometimes, just to see what happens.  You're welcome to start a Wiki page for the different 'views' around the site.  URL Parameters might be a good name.

You might also pick up more detail by exporting your member list to a csv and checking the header line at the top.

Christos -- This is known as a query string.

What you've provided in your message is as extensive as I've seen, but I'm sure the parameters can vary greatly depending on the destination page.

And is there anyway that defaults for these can be set, or they have to be entered each time? (in which case, bookmarking will take care of that)
Some of them (e.g.: items per page) are established in your account preferences (https://groups.io/account?page=prefs)...others by a sort order selection, start/end record identifiers, etc.

 For example, https://<groupURL>/members?p=joined,pending,,20,2,0,0

I figured out a few of these parameters but not sure on the rest, and what values can be used on them, and I'd like to find out so I can create bookmarks for quick use.
Before I create a bookmark (or paste a link into a message), I usually just remove any query string. But if you want to document them, have at it...the GMF wiki pages are editable by any subscriber. By sequentially clicking on the various column headers and/or manually changing entries you should be able to figure them out.

Regards,
Bruce

Update, figured out a couple more, only one left!

I also created a wiki and linked it to the main page.
