Filters

If you don't want to display all Users you can limit them with some simple filters:

  • Roles, you can display only a range of user filtering them by their Role. Multiple roles are accepted.

Exclude

Maybe you don't want to display info about a specific user.

  • Exclude user, you can easily remove users from the list simply searching them.

  • Exclude Authors, enable it if you don't want to display Authors who never post an article.
