re: The owner of the site insisted that the plugin customization automatically added the unordered lists to the bio simply by clicking on the categories…
This can be done with a slight tweak to the code which output the categories. You would use this code instead:
$entry->getCategoryBlock( array( 'type' => 'list' ) );
You of course would have to remove the categories that were manually added to the bio field when you edit an entry. You would also have to play with the styling of the list in order to achieve a similar look (bolded parent category names).
re: I have spent hours looking through cMap plugin php and the general plugin and still can’t find anything referencing the bio section. This is the only place I can think the old developer would have customized to produce content that appears to be manually added in the bio section.
The bio will be output by the
$entry->getBioBlock() function in both the
card-single.php files. If your customized version does or not is up in the air I suppose since they is really no way of me to know how the template was modified. That said, looking at the page source, it definitely looks like it is still using
Hope this helps!
