Im about 50/50 on what the templates actually are. Are they templates on how an entry is displayed or a template of pre configured back end settings you can adjust?
So far I dont have any category filters since Im using the stock entry list template. Right now my directory just shows all 300 people and I turned their departments into links and it filters from that.
I was hoping to do a drop down list of the categories or departments and have a search function for finding people by name.
We a re a very small company so the easier the better as the last time this was all updated was well before me and nothing in the back end (apache, php, mysql) had been updated in a VERY long time and the original directory breaks upon updating. Since our intranet is built on wordpress I took it and just want to make a very easy, simply directory I can show the usual individual how to update by entry. Previously it was a sql database edited through access we had to give people and it was a REAL PITA.
If the widget pack can give me a search bar and category (or department special field) drop down I should be set and could make this thing live. Right now its all in our test environment and I will have to run my security (nessus) scans then import it all. Working in our test envrio is not the most user friendly thing and Id like to get it out and just work on it in our production system.
Thanks for the help so far, REALLY impressed :)
