RE: It worked!!!!
Great to hear!
RE: how is it determined which order the excerpts are listed in?
Alphabetical by name (last name if an individual).
RE: Can they be alphabetized by city?
order_byshortcode option. You can change the order to be by city.
Hope this helps!04/24/2018 at 5:29 pm #460033
URG. the city has disappeared and i didn’t do anything. When i go to edit entry it shows as a category but doesn’t show the value (see attached screenshot). Checked and the code is still in snippet & in card.php file for child theme.

and if i want to add order by city would the shortcode be:
[connections category_in=12 image_width=200 order_by=city]
[connections category_in=12 image_width=200 order_by='city']04/25/2018 at 9:35 am #460159
RE: the city has disappeared and i didn’t do anything. When i go to edit entry it shows as a category but doesn’t show the value (see attached screenshot).
I took a look at the code for the snippet you attached as a PDF a few replies ago…
'type' => 'city', // This is the field type being added.
'type' => 'text', // This is the field type being added.
That is likely the reason it does not have a text input for you to type the name.
RE: if i want to add order by city would the shortcode be:
Either of those should work fine. I personally use quotes when adding shortcode options. Od, you should use the
categoryshortcode option not the
[connections category=12 image_width=200 order_by='city']04/25/2018 at 12:07 pm #460173
So close!!! I added a fake entry with a city name starting with A to test out the order by city feature.
When i just have [connections category=12 image_width=200] I can see both profiles, but they are not ordered alphabetically.
When i have [connections category=12 image_width=200 order_by='city']
[connections category=12 image_width=200 order_by=city]
the newer profile that has a custom city field starting with A disappears completely.

The order_by is not sorting based on your custom field. It is sorting based on the city field in the address fieldset. I suspect the entry disappears because the entry does not have an address with a matching city added in its address.
