RE: I want to add a login button on the menu. How can i do this ?
The main menu to your pages? Many times theme’s have that as a built in option. I recommend looking thru the theme options to see if it already has such an option.
If it does not, you could try the Login Logout Register Menu. I’ve personally never used it s it may or may not work.
Alternatively you could use the free Login extension for Connections. With this you can place a login widget in the theme’s sidebar. It also has the benefit of working together with Link to display the add/edit entry links to the user when they are logged in.
RE: Is it possible to display two different directory ?
Yes, many users do this by displaying different directory separated by category. Here’s how to configure the cMap template. This method will work woth any of the premium templates, which I recommend.
RE: Is it possible to display just a part of information entries (name,logo and company)in the directory ?
The easiest solution is to only enter the data you want to display. Empty fields do not display.
The Default template and the cMap template have a customizer. Navigate to the Connections : Templates admin page and click the Customize button for the Default template. First, make sure you have set the Directory home page on the Connections : Settings admin page under the Display tab. Make sure the selected page has the
[connections]shortcode on it.
The will open the Customizer and a preview. Here you can choose what to display on the list view of the template.
In the preview, click any entry name, the preview will refresh displaying the single entry profile view. You can now choose what to display in this view.
After you make your choices, click the Publish button to save the changes.
Hope this helps!
