I just switched my installation of WordPress to multisite and it has caused my custom templates to disappear.
The templates were stored in the /wp-content/connections_templates folder, but are no longer visible in /wp-admin/admin.php?page=connections_templates
Viewing any of the pages with Connections shortcodes threw an error, “ERROR: Template [templatename] not found.”
I was able to resolve the issue by copying the custom templates into the /wp-content/plugins/connections/templates folder, but I know this is not the correct way to fix the problem.
Can you advise?

To reiterate – it is working now, with a copy of the littlegreendot-photocard2 template in the main templates folder.08/02/2014 at 3:22 pm #299441
Switching Wp to multisite changes the default locations for the
wp-contentfolder… each blog has its own if I remember correctly. So you like need to move the
connections_templatesfolder to the correct blog.id/wp-content folder. YOu can deteremine the correct path by looking at the System widget on the Connections : Dashboard admin page. Look for the CN_IMAGE_PATH constant … it’s for the images, but the connections_templates folder should be in the same folder as the connection_images folder.
Hope that helps!08/03/2014 at 5:44 am #299450Ciaran LyonsGuest

I just updated Connections to the latest version and my templates cannot be found anymore.
In the Connections Dashboard, I see:
- Image Path Exists: Yes
- Image Path Writeable: Yes
- Template Path Exists: No
- Cache Path Exists: Yes
- Cache Path Writeable: Yes
The image path used to be:
Now it reads:
I have copied the connections_templates folder into /wp-content/uploads/sites/2/ but it doesn’t work. Any ideas?09/15/2014 at 10:37 am #304089
Could I get, temporarily, a super admin account and FTP login so I can see where I might have messed up the multi site template paths?09/15/2014 at 11:40 am #304099
