Ok, so it sounds like you can indeed add new entries… that’s good.
re: When saving an entry it highlights the surname field in red indicating the it is compulsory. i am currently using a full stop in the surname field as a quick fix. Is there a proper solution for this and do you know why it wold all of a sudden do this after a wordpress update?
This was a long standing bug that was finally fixed within Connections. An entry added as an
Individual, the first and last name are the minimum required fields to be entered and if the entry type is
Organization the org name is required. Before Connections would still work, but with changes in 8.1 and greater it is 100% necessary to have them so they are required.

Not sure what you mean by this, but the last name is a required field, this was a bug that was fix in Connections 8.1 and greater. Connections will require this field before an entry can be added.
re: Since doing the wordpress update, i am unable to select more than 2 categories per entry. If I add an entry with the following categories it works: (note that parent categories are selected too in each case)
- What is the exact shortcode you are using on the directory page?
- What are the category ID numbers for the categories you named in your last reply?
