RE: when you first responded to this question, you said it would require custom development and additional plugins. I took this to mean that if I downloaded the plugins specified and added the additional field using the method you suggested, I could add the additional drop down.
Just so I am on the same page… you are referring my reply from here, yes?
If that is the case, I do apologize for the confusion!
The custom development I was referring to was the development required to add the drop down and the filter/search with that drop down. Registering the custom field was not the custom development I was referring to.
When I mentioned another plugin, I was saying this could result in another plugin since you said you did not want another plugin.
RE: I was not editing the plugin’s template file, but rather editing a copy of that file, which is located in the new folder I created, located at “wp-content/connections-templates/gridder/” – is this the correct location?
Yes, that should work.
In this folder you have two files,
card.php and card-single.php`, correct?
And these are the files you have edited, correct?
RE: the field isn’t currently displaying
let’s focus on the
card-single.php file since I know that does not require any CSS.
I can not tell from the screenshot what line numbers the code was inserted on. I suggested line
72 based on where you said you wanted it inserted. For it to show the entry should have a bio and that field should be set to display (which it does by default).
If you want it to display even if the entry does not have a bio, try inserting the code on line
75 instead. That should cause the field to display between the bio and notes instead of after the bio.
Also, the entry must have something in the field in order for something to be outputted.
You could also add
echo 'I'm Here!"; just to make sure you are inserting the code in the right spot and something is being output.
Hope this helps!
