(array) Array of params used in get_user


Since: Jetpack 7.7.0


See the following for get_users default arguments:

In the example below, we will use the filter to exclude author 1 from the widget, and order authors from the oldest registered to the newest:

function jetpackcom_order_authors_widget( $get_author_params ) {
    $get_author_params['exclude'] = array( 1 );
    $get_author_params['order']   = 'ASC';
    $get_author_params['orderby'] = 'registered';

    return $get_author_params;
add_filter( 'jetpack_widget_authors_params', 'jetpackcom_order_authors_widget' );

    This is great progress. I’m so happy to see that my request was considered and solved. On the other hand, I am not a coder neither a developer just someone who can manage copy paste codes 🙂

    May I ask you to share sample code to sort the authors by predefined IDs. For example, I have authors with IDs 1,3,4,5,7 and I excluded ID 1 with ‘jetpack_widget_authors_exclude parameter. Now I want to sort the rest authors in that order: 5-4-3-7

      I added an example above to give you an example of how this can be used.

      You will not be able to order authors using an arbitrary order though: you’ll need to pick a way to order authors from the following list:
      ‘ID’, ‘login’, ‘nicename’, ’email’, ‘url’, ‘registered’, ‘display_name’, ‘post_count’, ‘include’, or ‘meta_value’.

      You can find out more about the different parameters you can use here:

        Thank you very much Jeremy. I find out a way to solve my problem. E-mails of those users are not important, I will sort by email and assign the e-mails in an alphebitical order of I wish 🙂 JetPack has a great team
