You can add a member directory page to your Wild Apricot site, allowing visitors to see a list of your members, search for members, and view member profiles.
Member directory page
Visitors to your site can search for members within the directory. Clicking on a member listing within the directory will display that member's profile (subject to their privacy settings).
You can control which members appear in the directory, restricting the list by criteria such as membership level or database fields such as city or state. You can create multiple member directory pages, each with different settings. For example, you could set up different member directories for members and non-members, or for different regions.
In addition to controlling which members are displayed in the list, you can control which fields are displayed for each member and the order in which member records are sorted.

The member directory page will now appear on your site, subject to any access restrictions you have set.

For each column, you can also specify the column heading and control the column width.
You can control the order in which members are listed in the directory by selecting up to 3 sort fields. The records will be displayed in order according to the values of the first field, then any duplicate values will sorted by the second field, and so on.

Both members and site administrators can control the kind of information exposed to the public through the member directory. Members can control whether their profile is viewable by others, and if so, which fields are viewable by members and non-members. Members who have set their profiles to private will not appear in the member directory at all. (For more information, see Member privacy settings.)
Administrators can control which fields appear in the member database, and which of these are viewable by members and non-members.
