Shortcode parameter usage syntax?

I'm trying to use the AWPCPUSERLISTINGS shortcode listed here:


But I can't figure out the syntax for entering the parmeters, as there are not examples included in the documentation.


I've tried


and various similar combinations. I can't get anything that actually pulls up the listings though, the page just appears with the shortcode in text.


Also, where do I find the user_id for a particular user? Is this the Wordpress user ID, or something generated by AWPCP?

Hi Adam,

Thanks for contacting me here. Sorry that you ran into issues with this!

The syntax for that shortcode should look like this (without the spaces before and after the brackets):

[  AWPCPUSERLISTINGS menu=true limit=2 user_id=1  ]

The user_id is the one used by WordPress and is found under the Users menu in WordPress. Just hover over the edit button, and you will see the userid in the bottom left status bar. 

If there's something else I can help you with, please let me know.
