I really like your plugin but I am unable to use it with the Facetwp search plugin which I had already purchased a while back. I looked at your templates with search bars and am not certain how I would go about customizing the search to various custom fields like I can easily do with facetwp.
Here is an example of the kind of search I require: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/resorts/#/$$-resorts,$$$-resorts,monorail/
The one I am doing will be location based and it would be great if I can advance the search you have in your templates.
I am interested in purchasing your FORM and LINK extensions, but I need to confirm that I can do the above. Personally I prefer the Facetwp search plugin, which suits my requirements really well, but I cannot see any of the connections tables available in the Facetwp table lists. Would you please assist me to get connections working with Facetwp?
I have seen your premium templates but the search looks really limited. I would also like to have full control over the design and layout of the theme as I have already got specific designs from the client. Will it be possible to integrate Connections with my own design using my own custom php and css/html pages? In other words can I get php snippets to insert where I need? Is there a codex you may already have to guide the process?

I definitely know of FacetWP, but to the best of my knowledge it only support searching WordPress pages/posts (including custom post types). Connections does not use these to store its data it uses custom tables with a schema more optimized for directories. The WordPress posts (CPT) are optimized for post like content. So adding support to Connections for FacetWP is not likely possible.
The closest I can offer is something like this:
This site uses a custom multiple category search which includes a radius search base on zipcode and a keyword search. If you think this will meet your needs I can offer it at a reasonable rate which would include installation and configuration.
Hope this thoroughly answers your question, let me know.06/13/2016 at 3:07 pm #379368JessGuest
Thank you ever so much for your response. I really appreciate it. Is it possible to email privately what I’m trying to achieve and we can work out the costs?
