I”m using Tile Plus to display this directory: http://chowchmbr.bhmbizsites.com/directory-main/
I like the Tile Plus features, but I’d also like to be able to display a map. Can I add in the map link on the tiles through a shortcode, or a combo of shortcode & editing the php/css? Maybe this is in the documentation, but I can’t find it.
I’d like the link to the map to appear right above the website link on the lower right of the tile.04/04/2013 at 8:08 pm #256024
The class.output.php file contains the getMapBlock() method that you can add to the template to add a map. The documentation for the method is there and is fairly thorough.04/05/2013 at 2:56 pm #256130BetGuest
I’m sorry– I’m not seeing where to find the class.output.php file (not in with the rest of the Connections plugin files). And is the documentation in that file, or somewhere else?04/05/2013 at 3:56 pm #256133
It is in the includes folder.07/17/2014 at 4:37 pm #297360james301Participant
I am wanting to do the same thing but can not find the class.output.php file in the includes folder.
After rereading the first post. I would like the map to only show up on the actual profile but not on the listing page. Is this possible?

The file is now named
class.entry-output.php. You need to use more than just the
getMapBlock()method to a file named
card-single.php. See this QuickTip about custom template overrride files.
Hope that helps!07/17/2014 at 9:56 pm #297371james301Participant
I appreciate your response, but I am pretty much as lost as before. I am not sure what specifically needs to be done. I am more of a web designer with a little bit of development experience. Is there a more in depth how to? Or even someone that I could hire to make this adjustment.07/18/2014 at 10:24 am #297390
Sure, I can refer you to a dev which has a lot of experience working with Connections and its templates. I’ll ask him to stop by this forum thread so you and he can make contact.07/18/2014 at 12:21 pm #297398Joshua KornreichParticipant
I help a lot of Steve’s customers with custom development. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll see what I can do for you.
