I have a similar problem… sort of. My directory page (http://ccl.rutgers.edu/ccl-staff-directory/) has 4 bolded headings and under each heading I placed the shortcode with arguments to pull up only the entries that fit those categories, so the page, in edit mode, is:
<strong>Faculty</strong> [connections category='8'] <strong>Technical/Scientific Staff</strong> [connections category='4'] <strong>Administrative Support Staff</strong> [connections category='6'] <strong>Research Assistants/Students</strong> [connections category='7']
With the 4 short codes, I have a problem… If you click on the name link for any one of the entries, you get that same entry repeated 4 times on the page, once under each bolded heading (so, once for each shortcode). I noticed one of the live examples has the same issue, although I don’t see that one listed now (maybe it was taken down).
I have a duplicate page that only has the basic shortcode and it works as expected (http://ccl.rutgers.edu/ccl-directory/) but that is not the way I want the page to look. I need to break it up by category. Am I missing an obvious step to make this work as needed?
