I’ve been playing with shortcodes with cMaps, when I do this:
[connections page_limit=15 pagination_postition='before' enable_search='true' image = 'false' str_image='' addr_format="%line1% %line2% %line3% %city%, %state% %zipcode%" phone_format=%number% email_format=%address%],
the cMap comes up pretty close to what I want, though I’m still tweaking. However my Connections db contains both Individuals and Organizations and for this directory, I just want to show organizations. So I’ve added the list_type of organizations, so now my shortcode list says:
[connections list_type='organization' page_limit=15 pagination_postition='before' enable_search='true' image = 'false' str_image='' addr_format="%line1% %line2% %line3% %city%, %state% %zipcode%" phone_format=%number% email_format=%address%]
When I do this, the page no longer displays as a cMap template, it reverts to the Default Entry Card template. If I take out the list_type shortcode, it reverts back to the cMap template.
Is there some issue with this shortcode and cMaps?

Yes, this is how that works. You can chose different templates to use per list type. You have two options. The first, add
template=cmapto the shortcode. That will force usage of the cMap template. The second, go to the Connections : Templates admin page and click the Individual template type and Activate the cMap template. Then do the same for the Organization template type.
Hope that helps!10/13/2014 at 10:16 am #306888
