And please tell me, whether I have to install the latest cMaps version and “kill” the old one.
Do you need access to any other page? let me know10/24/2014 at 8:20 am #308006
I still need the WordPress admin and FTP login info. Make sure you click the private checkbox before you click the submit button so other can not read the login info.10/24/2014 at 3:07 pm #308055This reply has been marked as private.10/25/2014 at 9:58 pm #308110This reply has been marked as private.11/04/2014 at 9:40 am #308956

oh, yes sorry! I did not see that you posted the login details. I’ll set some time asap to take a look and fix.11/05/2014 at 1:45 pm #309039
Ok, I think everything is straightened out now. … I hope I fixed the right site, it was a little confusing.11/05/2014 at 5:51 pm #309091
that was perfekt, and you chose the right site.
Now I would like to make minor changes in the look. Still have to swap the appearance of City and zip-code. Which is the right file to make changes? Maybe change the color or change the typo?
Would also like to translate the words “select category” in the dropdown menue.
I can upload logos and pictures. How do I activate the picture?
and one last thing: when all entries are shown in the dashboard I see the alphabeth on top. Not all letters are shown. It stopps with the letter V.
And what I would like to know most: what have you done, to bring everything back to life, that I could not? Could I have fixed it myself? But that is just for interest!
Thank you for your wonderful work!11/05/2014 at 5:51 pm #30909211/06/2014 at 8:59 am #309158
re: Now I would like to make minor changes in the look. Still have to swap the appearance of City and zip-code.
I answered the same question in this reply. What I did was edit the page making the change to the shortcode so you can see how it is done.
re: Which is the right file to make changes?
It is not necessary to edit the file directly and advise against it so you are able to upgrade. Please see how to make changes in an update safe way:
re: Maybe change the color
See this page on how to do it. No files need to be edited.
re: change the typo
The font style is picked up from the theme. It is not set by template. So if you want to change the font style, change it in the theme or use the custom CSS file to set one specifically for the template.
re: Would also like to translate the words “select category” in the dropdown menue.
I change the shortcode so you can see how this is done. I do not know German so I use Google Translate. You’ll need to tweak to make it correct.
re: How do I activate the picture?
I answered the same question in this reply. I updated the shortcode to configure cMap to display the photo instead of the logo.
re: when all entries are shown in the dashboard I see the alphabeth on top. Not all letters are shown. It stopps with the letter V.
I see all letters. Make sure the filters in the top left are all set to show all. Also, by default, the list is paginated showing only 50 at a time. Make sure you click to go to the next page.
re: And what I would like to know most: what have you done, to bring everything back to life, that I could not? Could I have fixed it myself?
I had to figure out exactly what shape your DB was in and then manually edit the PHP files to run the right update routines. This would have been extremely difficult to do yourself if you’re not a PHP expert and have a deep knowledge of the Connections code.
Hope that helps!
