Sorry, I did not get the notice about the private reply. I’m looking now. I’m going to temporarily deactivate all non-Connections plugins to determine if it is a plugins conflict.
As for GoDaddy … that’s their boilerplate answer. Consideration is also affects the core WordPress search … I’m they would just say it is bug in WordPress.
Can I also get FTP access. I need to see if there are any .htaccess rules put in place that would give a 403 permission denied result.02/03/2015 at 11:12 am #318014This reply has been marked as private.02/03/2015 at 11:14 am #318015This reply has been marked as private.02/03/2015 at 11:48 am #318017
Whether GoDaddy want to admit it or not, this is a server config issue. What the exact real solution would be, I do not know since that is not my area of expertise.
Here’s what I found…
Notice that the search works just fine of both the Bishops and Pastors pages. It only does not work on the Churches page.
Why is this…
It is because there is an actual
churchesdirectory on the server. You can see it when you log into the site with FTP.
If you change the name of this folder, temporarily, the search will now work on the Churches page.
This is because for some reason when there is a query, the server thinks it is a query for the
churchesdirectory (the folder, not the page) which will throw the access denied error … which is exactly what should happen.
Another solution is to change the page slug from
church, which is what I did, now it works fine since they is no conflict with the folder on the server named

Okay so, I will delete the duplicate file. Thank you for helping to resolve this issue.
One other question, Slim-Plus provides for bio, however, I’d like to have a method of linking to full page bio or at least a read more function.
Is it possible to link the Pastors to their Church and vice-versa?02/03/2015 at 1:06 pm #318041
A read more link could be added to Slim Plus but that would require a bit more work than just a small snippet of code that I could give you…
Adding the read more link, add the following code to the
card.phpfile found here:
cnURL::permalink( array( 'type' => 'name', 'slug' => $entry->getSlug(), 'text' => 'Read More', 'home_id' => $atts['home_id'], ) );
You would have to make sure the home_id shortcode option is set in the shortcode.
Now this should take you to the page with just the single entry. But it’ll just show the Slim Plus with just that one entry, nothing more.
You can use a second template for the single entry view. Go to the Connections : Settings admin page and click the Display tab and enable the Single Entry Template option.
Now you can go to the Connections : Templates admin page and and activate your desired template under both the Individual and Organization template types, I suggest the cMap template.
Is it possible to link the Pastors to their Church and vice-versa?
Sorry no, not really, since there is no relationship created between the entries like that.02/03/2015 at 3:30 pm #318092
Thank you, I will get back to you once I’ve implemented your instructions.04/13/2015 at 11:07 am #331193BenGuest
Thanks for the quick response back in January – still trying to resolve this issue for our members profile search.
[connections page_limit='32' pagination_position='both' category='2' show_alphaindex='true' width='590' template='cmap' str_home_addr='Address' str_home_phone='Phone' str_work_phone='Phone' str_personal_email='Email' str_work_email='Email' background_color='#f5eedb' background_gradient=TRUE enable_website_link=TRUE connections email_format='%icon%']
That is, I believe, the shortcode you were referring to. It can be found at the following address:
Do you see something problematic with this shortcode which would explain the search results not listing all kinds of profiles?
Many thanks in advance for the assistance, support like this makes us very happy users :)

By having the
category='2'option in the shortcode, you will be limited the search results to just that category. The only ways to search within the other categories would to be first to switch to them using the drop down. If you want the search to be of the whole directory, you’ll have to remove that option.
Hope that helps!04/13/2015 at 4:17 pm #331244BenGuest
You! Are! The! Man!
Thanks so much for the assistance, everything is functioning as intended.
Have a great evening,
