Thanks. I had seen that list of shortcodes but in various forum posts I have seen other ones… or variations of..
I have tried this as an example:
[connections show_category_in="restaurants" list_type="organization"]
but it shows ALL organizations, not just restaurants, so don’t know how to refine the query or if it’s even possible.
I have tried using just show_category as well as using 2 as the category number instead of restaurants.
The meta query was done so I could fully test this directory system without buying everything first. I have experimented with a lot of different directory plugins and am hoping to find that Connections is the most customizable option for our use. I will look further into the Custom Order Extension as an option to meta query. Good to know the extension is more efficient.
