I ordered the pro pack and have been mostly satisfied with it, but as far as I can tell the only way to make a page with categories is to manually create one, is this correct?
I have a directory with thousands of entries, and the pulldown category menu in cMap is a wonky solution so I had to remove it because it doesn’t scale well when searching a large database and it starts to step over itself when you try to drill down into the directory. The sidebar widgets work better because they always search from the base, but realistically it would be ideal if there was a base category page with breadcrumbs.
I’m about to do it manually, but I was hoping there was an easier solution. Is there a way to use something like the Multi-Column Taxonomy List plugin with Connection?
If there were a way to use that with my Connections categories it would be perfect, is there a way for me to use that for a category page?

Since your had purchased the Pro Pack I emailed you another extension, install it and follow the instructions in the email to add a page that shows the links to all the categories in Connections. I hope that helps!
If you have a moment, I would truly appreciate a review as they really do make a difference. Many thanks in advance!

Hi Steven (and Craig ( thread starter))
I was looking at the showcase for http://www.visitwollombi.com.au/wine-produce/local-produce/ and they have got it set out with category pages really nicely. Is this what we are talking about in this thread as I would love to be able to do that too.

No, what Craig asked for was a page that listed all categories within Connections as links.
The site that you linked to…
All they did was create a several individual pages and used the category shortcode option and the enable_category_by_root_parent available that the cMap template enables. to create several mini directories separated by category parent.
Hope that helps!04/07/2014 at 5:02 pm #287991kar3nParticipant
Ok right so I cant do that with the “market” template that I’ve installed then? I don’t seem to have the cmap template anyway.
UPDATE I have seen how to install the cmap template now (sorry about that) If I go ahead and change the template from Market to Cmap will it affect the current entries or simply change them to suit the new template?

Switching templates is a lot like switching themes… it changes the appearance/presentation of the data/content it does not change/alter or delete it.
Hope that helps!
