Hi all, is there a way to display the id numbers of all the entries under Connections: Manage? maybe just after the Name.
I think its only commonsense to display this as it’s an integral part of the shortcode system and clicking on entry to find the ID number not practical.05/21/2014 at 1:17 pm #291776Steven ZahmKeymaster
The entry ID is shown on the Connections : Manage admin page, click the Show Details link. It’ll be in the far right column of details.
Hope that helps.05/21/2014 at 5:18 pm #291799LeeGuest
HI Steven, Thanks for the reply.
I know how to do that, but is there no way to have the entry ID displayed without having to do that, I find it tedious to mouseover and select “Show Details” for all of the entries to see the ID. I would have thought it more logical to have the Entry ID in view.
Image | ID | Name | Categories | Last Modified
Image | Name | ID | Categories | Last Modified
This would make referencing entries and entry ID’s much faster.
If I use the short code
[connections id='11,1,2,3,10,9,8,14' order_by='id|SPECIFIED']I also use a plugin called Peter’s Post Notes to keep a track of which entry ID belongs to which Person. If I have to change the ID’s in the shortcode I would like to open another window and browse the names and the ID without having to click on show details.
I know a simpler method would be categories but my clients like to have a particular order to the connections listed that’s why I use the shortcode above.05/22/2014 at 4:33 pm #291918Steven ZahmKeymaster
I see, yes, for your usage, that would make it quite a bit quicker. Perhaps I can add an action or filter that would allow you to hook the ID to where you want it. I’ve added it to my feature request tracker.05/22/2014 at 4:37 pm #291919LeeGuest
Thats awesome, Thanks Steven, look forward to seeing it in future release. :-)
