re: My images are uploading with a weird dimension, as seen on this page:
Any idea how I can fix this?
I suspect you set the image crop mode to “Resize to fit the specified dimensions (no cropping)” for the Medium Image Setting on the Connections : Settings admin page. I highly recommend change the settings back to their defaults. In this case the crop mode should be “Crop and resize proportionally to best fit the specified dimensions, maintaining the aspect ratio.“.
re: I need to make the Category on the Member Directory page link to the individual page,
You would use the
$entry->getCategory() function to return the array of category objects (cnTerm_Object) attached to an entry. Since you are attaching a single category to an entry you can pop off the first category object from the array and use the category->name link as the link text and use the
$entry->getPermalink() function for the link
Hope that helps!
