Did you perhaps reply to an automated email response? I asked because that’s the only thing I can think of when you say you emailed. Replies to automated responses … I do not receive those. It’s always best to post here in the forums.
Looking at your page…
The first thing I see is that you used the shortcode on the same page multiple time. You can do this but you should turn off all the List Action on the Connections : Settings admin page under the Display tab. You should also disable the category select feature in cMap by using the
enable_category_select shortcode option. Here’s an example:
Now you will still have one other issue since there are multiple shortcode on the same page when you click thru to a single entry you’re technically still on the same page so the entry that was clicked on will be shown for each instance of the shortcode. There is a solution to this…
First, create a “Results” page, the name can be anything you choose because it is not important. I do recommend choosing a name that is relevant though. For the page content use the
[connections] shortcode with no options.
Now go to the Connections Settings admin page and set your new “Results” page to tbe the directory home page.
Lastly, on the original page add
force_home='true' to each and every shortcode instance. Here’s an example:
[connections enable_category_select='false' force_home='true']
Now when a link in the directory is click it will use the “Results” page with only a single instance of the shortcode.
To set the initial page to be just a list of names, go to the Connections : Templates admin page and activate the Names template under the All template type. And under the Individual and Organization template types activate the cMap template. Now go to the Connections : Settings admin page and click the Display tab. You want to enable the Single Entry Template option.
With this setup, you have a list of entry names under each category, when the name is clicked, it will use the “Results” page using the cMap template.
Hope that helps!
