I am trying to: Display user display_name field using standard Views shortcode

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: "Student: [student namehere]" for logged in and non-logged in users

Instead, I got: "Student: [nothing here if not logged in]"

There must be a simple reason though I haven't encountered this before. Should be easy to help me. Thank you!

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

I need to know how you configured your view and for what users/roles types.

Can you please share admin access details so I can check this issue further.

*** Please make a FULL BACKUP of your database and website.***
I would also eventually need to request temporary access (WP-Admin and FTP) to your site. Preferably to a test site where the problem has been replicated if possible in order to be of better help and check if some configurations might need to be changed.

I have set the next reply to private which means only you and I have access to it.


I think I'll do this via a non-Toolset means on this site (PublishPress Authors Pro)....thanks.
