Hello, I just purchased the CSV import package for use with connections and I’m seeing horrible overlap on my directory page. Are there any fixes?04/12/2013 at 7:57 pm #256863
I’m confused. The CSV Import is only for importing, it doesn’t display anything on the directory page. Could you supply more details and a link to your directory?04/17/2013 at 8:01 pm #257391Anthony PerryGuest
Hello, thanks for the reply. The directory page can be found at http://www.trao.org/?page_id=5. I knew the CSV import didn’t actually handle the displaying, but I wasn’t seeing this issue until after I used it to speed up the import of contacts. Take a look and let me know if you know what could be causing it. It could be something on my end, maybe a positioning issue or something. Thanks again04/18/2013 at 3:05 pm #257444
Go to the Connections : Categories admin page and edit the “G” category. Change the category slug to be anything other than just “g”. That should fix it up.04/19/2013 at 1:13 pm #257508anthony perryParticipant
That fixed it! Thanks! Out of curiosity, what was that slug affecting? Feel free to not spare any technical details because I’m curious to know why the fix was something so simple as changing a slug. Thanks again!04/19/2013 at 2:02 pm #257510
Actually it’s not too technical and kind of not even Connections related, sort of.
The theme’s CSS classes for the menu. The author used “g” for the CSS classes. Not semantically the best choice, but no big deal. I think you might see where this is heading… Now, when Connections outputs the entries it adds the categories [slugs] as CSS classes. This allows you or anyone to style entries per category. This is very useful because it allows one to create “highlighted” entries. Now, because one of your categories was G, the “g” was being added as a class to the entry so the CSS meant for the menu was being applied to the entries assigned to the “G” category too. So changing the category slug was the solution.
hope that makes sense.
