I’m looking at purchasing the PRO pack for use with the neighborhood directory that I’m currently curating on behalf of the Griffin Park Owners’ Association. I have a few questions concerning the flexibility of the plugin that I can’t seem to figure out:
Family Relationships: Is it possible to add new relationships (e.g. instead of using specific terms such as Husband, Wife, Daughter, Son; use Adult, Child, or custom field)
[connections] shortcode: Is it possible to have the connections shortcode display only individual records that are not associated with family connections (in addition to the family records)?
Link: Will it be possible to have one WP.org account be able to edit any records associated with a family account? If this isn’t possible now, will it be possible in the future?
CSV import: Is it possible to specify what kind of record an entry is via CSV import (organization, family, individual).
I think that’s it for now. Any answers would be extremely helpful.04/15/2013 at 9:02 pm #257148Steven ZahmKeymaster
Apologies for the delay in my reply! I think I must have accidentally removed this message from my reply queue.
For now, the only way to add additional relations is to add them to the code manually.
I’m not 100% sure what you’re asking about the family and individuals, but I think the list_type option might be want you;re looking for.
Currently link does not allow editing beyond the entry the user is linked to. This might be added in the future, but I couldn’t begin to say when. So it would be best not to count on it for now.
During import you can specify the entry type, but only individual and organization. Create a column in your CSV, named type and use “individual” or “organization” to denote the entry type.
I hope that helps.
