Yep, about 3 and a half years ago; 10-26-2010. Any way…
[connections_list] shortcode was deprecated a little over two years ago and removed in the latest version. Well, not actually removed. I renamed it to simply
[connections]. So to you only need to remove
_list from the shortcode name and things will almost be back to normal.
Unfortunately you’ll receive an error in the template after fixing the shortcode. To fix this error open the
template.php file which should be found here:
Look for line 44, which should be this:
<?php echo $vcard->download() ?>
And change it to this:
<?php echo $entry->vcard() ?>
Now you should be back in business.
Apologies for the trouble, but I stripped some of the legacy code in order to moved the Connections templating support forward … I did do my best to maintain as much backward support as possible … in another year or so I will be pulling the code out that supports the way your template was constructed so you may want to consider using a different template. Looking at the custom template, it appears the Bio Entry Card template which is free and comes with Connections is a very close match.
Let me know when you’re up and running and I’ll list your site on my live samples page.
I hope that helps!
