I’m new so here goes… My Gridder is a professional horse trimmers list, so the entries are geared around their training level and service areas across the country. I have the Categories broken down by state and country. 1)I am using the Work Email field instead of default email field but neither appear on the detailed or view profile when expanded. I have ROT-13 installed is that somehow blocking it from being displayed? 2)Can I have a Custom field display below the name/title on the Grid? I’d like to use this for an abbreviate service area field. 3) Can I suppress the Geo map if lat and lon are 0

re: 1)I am using the Work Email field instead of default email field but neither appear on the detailed or view profile when expanded. I have ROT-13 installed is that somehow blocking it from being displayed?
No ROT-13 does not block them, however, Contact does. That is one of its main features; to hide email addresses in favor of an contact form to keep email addresses private. If you’d like the email addresses to be public, you’ll need to disable Contact.
re: 2)Can I have a Custom field display below the name/title on the Grid?
Technically possible but requires coding change in order to do so as there is no point an click way to add a custom field there.
re: 3) Can I suppress the Geo map if lat and lon are 0
So, no, if there is an address, they’ll be a map regardless if the coords are manually set to 0,0. Well, again, technically possible with coding changes.
re: Not mentioned, but I noticed…
Hope that helps, please let me know.
ps. I do provide custom coding solutions for Connections. If you are interested, please contact me using the contact link at the bottom of the page for a quote.07/22/2016 at 1:02 pm #383758Eugene PetersParticipant
Thanks for the reply and answers.
I am a php programmer so if I get pointed in the right direction I can figure out where to make some of the changes I mentioned above.
I will reload Gridder.
You also mentioned “Contact”, but that doesn’t show up either, is it suppressed by default?
Again thanks for a great module.07/22/2016 at 3:42 pm #383812Steven ZahmKeymaster
re: I am a php programmer so if I get pointed in the right direction I can figure out where to make some of the changes I mentioned above.
First, I recommend taking a look at the template override doc. I suggest following this method rather than editing the actual files so the changes are update safe.
If you do not want to add an actual custom field text input but rather use the “Custom Fields” you can use the same method as explained in the tutorial to display the value. Hope that makes sense!
One thing you’ll need to keep in mind, after you add the code to display field where you want in Gridder, you will need to alter the CSS to actually see. The font size is set to zero by default and then the font size for the name overrides that zero. Just as you can add custom template override files, you can load custom CSS files, see this doc.
Now, not to show the map if the coords are 0,0… That is a bit more tricky. Look in the card-single.php file. You find the
$entry->getMapBlock()call, that method is in the class.entry-output.php file. You’ll have to write your own custom function to do the check you want.
re: You also mentioned “Contact”, but that doesn’t show up either, is it suppressed by default?
It is not “suppressed”, but you need to to it “on”… semantics I suppose. Here’s the applicable doc link:
Hope that helps!
