Awesome! Thank you so much!
Few new issues: I can’t figure out how to display all of the categories. When I chose category 9 to show, it’s actually showing category 10 (internal medicine) AND ALL, but it won’t show ALL of the specialties I have added. It only displays All and Internal Medicine. How can I show ALL of the categories (specialties) I have?
Also, I have purchased Form, and I can’t figure out how to just display the form on a page. Is there a shortcode to display the join form?
One last question: I had inquired about Split Categories and you pointed me to a github: https://github.com/Connections-Business-Directory/Split-Categories in which you have written a PHP file to have exactly what I am looking for. I need to add Insurance Providers as a search field in the advanced search and add it as a question in the form for new members. How do I add that PHP file and connect it to the system.
I apologize for the barrage of questions, but I’m in a time crunch to get this done today and over the weekend. I really appreciate your assistance and your work on this plugin system. I have had the pleasure of using it on two websites. Thank you for your time and effort and support!09/07/2018 at 12:49 pm #471850
Let’s tackle one thing at a time….
Allergy & Immunologyit has a single child category,
If you set category
9as the parent for the drop down, displaying
Internal Medicineis the expected result.
To have a
Specialtiesdrop down, you should first create a Specialties category and then edit the existing categories so the parent is set to
Then edit the search to be the ID of the
Hope this makes sense!09/07/2018 at 1:11 pm #471851

Is the intent to have registered WP users add and edit the own entry?09/07/2018 at 2:06 pm #471854
Yes. They will be adding and editing their own entries. I have the Link plugin attached as well. I basically would like to handle membership via a login plugin, then push them to the form to fill out when a new member joins. This is why I was asking about a shortcode just to the form, because I think I have to break up members joining the site and then pushing them to the form. Unless you have another suggestion on how to facilitate someone joining the site and the form populates in the same page, basically one form is filled out with the criteria for the directory, but can also create the user. I think I saw you mention in another post about using another plugin for handling signups.09/07/2018 at 2:19 pm #471856
Ok, this is how I recommend setting this up. Instead of redirecting to the Form submission page, create a new “Member Homepage” (name does not matter).
On this page you can give details about their membership.
Also on this page you can use the Link shortcodes to embed links to the Form submission page.
And, optionally, setup the Link “Result List Actions”. These are the same links as the shortcodes but are presented to the user above the directory.
Of course you need to have Form activate on the Plugin admin page.
Hope this helps, let me know.
