I am using a custom version of Slim Plus. The Alpha Index is included on the directory page like this:
[connections template="slim-plus-custom" show_alphaindex="true" repeat_alphaindex="true"]
This presents the alphabetical index at the top of the page and periodically throughout the list as it should.
However, when you click on a letter, nothing happens.
This is a recent phenomenon. It has recently stopped working.10/28/2013 at 12:00 pm #272495
The alpha index has receive a significant update. Instead of jumping to a letter group within a list, it will filter the list by the character clicked. If you’re receiving 404/s I suspect it is because default option did not set for some reason during the update. To fix it go to the Connections : Settings admin page and enter
charin the Character URL Base option under the Advanced tab and save.
That should do it. Apologies for the trouble.10/28/2013 at 3:58 pm #272511ValliGuest
Thank you for the reply.
The Base option already had “char” added.
I am still having the problem.
Could it be because you wrote a slightly different version of Slim Plus for me? This was in Sept of 2011 so it’s pretty old at this point.10/28/2013 at 4:26 pm #272512
That very well could be. Can you share the link to the page so I can take a look?10/28/2013 at 5:11 pm #272513ValliGuest

Oh, I see. A while back I changed the anchor IDs for the in-page linking. I had to prefix them from
cn-so they would stop conflicting with theme styles. If you can grant me a temp FTP account I’ll log in and make a small edit to the template so they’ll work again.10/28/2013 at 9:20 pm #272532ValliGuest
I’ve sent the ftp info via email to help desk.
Thank you for your help!
