I am trying to create a table that is populated by the users: name, points, training completed. All of this data is in the users admin section. Is there a plug in or code I can look at to understand how to create this?

See how the data is stored in the database in the table "wp_usermeta"

Find the storage keys for "points", "training completed"

Then using the function


$users = get_users( $args ); 

foreach ( $users as $user ): 

    echo $user->ID;

    echo $user->display_name ;

    echo get_user_meta( $user->ID, 'KEY_POINTS', $single = true);

    echo get_user_meta( $user->ID, 'KEY_TRAINING_COMPLETE', $single = true);
  • I can not find the user data in the wp_usermeta. The data is in the user profile is there some other place it could be located in?

  • display all user fields by id $um = get_user_meta ($user->ID); var_dump ($um); Aug 10, 2018 at 16:05
