I am trying to: create a view that is filtered by a custom usermeta field

I visited this URL: hidden link

I expected to see: a view that shows users but only with the custom user meta field "wpcf-user-role"
of Host

Instead, I got: All users are listed and debug tool shows an empty query


Dear ashleigh,

In your screenshot:
hidden link
You are using a filter which is filtered by browser URL parameter "filterbyrole"

But in your screenshot:
hidden link
You are pass the attribute "filterbyrole" to view shortcode [wpv-view]

They are different, one is URL parameter, the other is shortcode attribute.

I assume you are going to filter the view result by shortcode attribute, please modify the filter the view, your screenshot:
hidden link
Select items with field:
wpcf-user-role is a string equal to VIEW_PARAM(filterbyrole)

see my screenshot filter.JPG


...and it's fixed. Sorry for the bother I must have been really tired!
