#7742 new defect (bug)

bp_has_members( bp_ajax_querystring( 'members' )

Description

Looking at the documentation here:

https://codex.buddypress.org/developer/loops-reference/the-members-loop/

It does not actually say how you would apply the arguments to this string.

The forum posts show you need to use &, so:

`bp_has_members( bp_ajax_querystring( 'members' ) . '&per_page=20&type=alphabetical' ));'

Will return the members loop as alphabetical and with 20 members per page.

however,

bp_has_members( bp_ajax_querystring( 'members' ) . '&type=alphabetical' ));'

Does not produce an alphabetical list, in order to get that to work you need to remove the &.

'&exclude=3' seems to have no affect at all.

Am I using this incorrectly? (since others seem to be able to get this to work, in the past though I have a forum post with another user having the same problem).

Either way I think it needs to be looked at, and the documentation updated to explain the usage of the filter options, just so novices aren't looking all over for a code snippet that actually works for them.

The correct method is to filter 'bp_ajax_querystring' to modify the arguments due to how the bp_ajax_querystring() function sets the parameters in the members loop:
https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/2.9.4/src/bp-core/bp-core-template.php?marks=1266#L1249

When using the filter, be sure to do checks against the $object so you are filtering against the members loop and not another loop.
