Tell us what you are trying to do? Trying to let an admin edit user forms (Cred)

Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see? See the above mentioned thread

What is the link to your site? hidden link

I am trying to follow the instructions Beda gave in the thread but all the links are shown as 'hidden link' which makes it hard to follow the example.

I have managed to create a view that lists all users of a certain role, see hidden link
The main part of this view is the following code:

  • <a href='hidden link field="ID"]'>[wpv-user field="display_name"]</a>
  • The urls in the dropdown created by this view are like hidden link where the number at the end is the variable user-id, but all user-id's open a page with the same user, so the url parameter is not working.

    The view to open the cred form has this code inside the loop: [cred_user_form form="bewerk-profiel-door-gebruiker" user="[wpv-user field='ID']"]

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Erik,

    Hi Shane, I solved the issue.

    It appeared that the view containing the edit user form was served from cache. I found the setting to turn the cache off when inserting the view in a page.

    [wpv-view name="test-view" cached="off"]

    Moreover I found out how to pass an url parameter to a user form. I will put the code below for other users to view, as I could not find this in the docs.

    Inside the loop of the view that shows the edit user form:

     [cred_user_form form="edit-profile" user="[get_cred_urlparam]"]

    The shortcode


    is a custom function I put inside functions.php of the child theme. Here is the function:

    add_shortcode( 'get_cred_urlparam', 'cred_field_urlparam');
    function cred_field_urlparam($attr) {
         return $_GET['user_id'];    

    Since I only needed the url parameter 'user_id' I could keep it this simple.
    If you know a better way to add an url parameter to a cred user form, please let me know.
    This works.
