I’m not sure if I am posting in the correct forum, so if not please let me know and I will repost in the correct area.
That being said, here is my situation, and my dilemma:
main directory template: names
single entry template: cmap
goal: in the dashboard management area, to add a checkbox/ radio button to the address field where a user can select whether or not the given address is handicapped accessible.
Since I am using names for the directory template, I know that template won’t need to be modified. However when a member’s profile is viewed, I would like for any of their addresses listed to display on cmap with something that denotes the status of handicapped accessibility.
Can you think of a way for me to accomplish this? If needed I can mock up a couple of screenshots with what I have in mind to clarify this question.07/07/2014 at 6:19 pm #296274
Probably the easiest solution is to rename the “Other” address type. See this QuickTip on how to change text in Connections.
Hope that helps!07/07/2014 at 9:51 pm #296290
My goodness, I was not aware of this solution. This is glorious. Thanks a lot! This will help me to clean up a few of my shortcodes too!07/08/2014 at 11:50 am #296409
In light of this solution I decided to rename “biographical info” and “notes” as well.
The change takes effect in the admin dashboard (edit entry). But on the front end it displays as “Biography” and “Note” respectively. I have tried creating text changes for these words as well to no avail.
Any advice on this? Thanks07/08/2014 at 11:52 am #296410
I see this page.. http://connections-pro.com/faqs/how-do-i-use-the-str_-shortcode-options/
So I guess it won’t clean up my shortcodes. But that’s ok, as long as I know.07/08/2014 at 3:33 pm #296448
Right, template specific strings use the str_***** shortcode options. It is on my todo list to make them translation ready so one could use the Say What? plugin to make changes but honestly, it is lower on the priority list.07/18/2014 at 8:00 am #297380
I need to revisit this topic in light of a problem that has arisen as a result of the saywhat? solution.
I have renamed the “Other” address to “Office (Handicapped Accessible)” but this text is too large for the field, as you can see in the attached image, it’s causing the drop down selection to run into the visibility settings on smaller screen sizes.
Is there a way to move the visibility settings to a new line, or another solution?

Hmmm… there’s no easy fix for that…
I just tweaked the code/css a bit in the forthcoming 0.8.14 bug fix release to better deal with this. I’ll be releasing the bug fix soon. Right now I’m greatly improving the responsive compatibility of the form in the admin.
