    Hi Andy – We’re setting up our member directory / address list to be accessible by non-logged in users (but on a password protected page). We’re in the US so this is legal, and many in our congregation are tech averse so requiring them to log in would be a non-starter. Having said this, we want the entries to be editable on the front end only by logged in users. If I read the documentation correctly, this should be possible by setting updateable=1 in the shortcode, but I’ve tried every permutation I can think of and the entries are editable by a non-logged in user. Can you help me understand what I’m missing?

    Thanks
    Sheryl

    You are missing nothing!
    The problem is that the directory is cached – so if it’s updateable=1 it’ll have the edit link for all users logged in or not. A non logged in user will get the screen that allows them to login or register.
    Mmm – I think the only way round will be to add a cache=0 flag so the user gets served an edit link if logged in and nothing if not.

    Done for v1.5210
