This may make no sense… but its just a thought. :)
When a user is looking at the display of all the records on a page, it is not overly intuitive that clicking on the record title will open the single view. (I guess we could inform them of that on the page, but…)
Anyhoo, is it possible to make the entire record box an active link like the title is? Whereby if the user clicked anywhere (or in most areas) in the box, (excluding those active link blocks like social media) it would open the single view?
Thoughts? Thanks.05/06/2014 at 3:10 pm #290486Steven ZahmKeymaster
I understand the question…
Sorry, that would not work because you can not have links within links … you think this is not intuitive for users? Every directory I’ve ever used on the web, clicking the name was how one navigated to more details provided of course that the directory has such a feature. In a different context, that is even how WordPress blog posts work. The main page list the title with an except, clicking on the name takes one to the complete post. Please do not take these comments as being defensive… If you can point me to any directories you know that follows a different design, I’ll definitely take a look. In the end, with templates, you can really do it any way you want.05/06/2014 at 3:19 pm #290488
No problem at all. I always appreciate your feedback.
I think I just need to somehow make sure people understand to click the title. Maybe some css of the text/color/font/underline. Like Google does in SERPs, where when you hover over the title, it adds an underline, that sort of thing. (or maybe I’ll make it change color).
Bottom line, its something I can do here that emphasizes the link, not necessarily a defect in the plugin structure.

Ok, got it. Right now, I leave the anchor styling to the the theme so a bit a CSS tweaking is all that needs done.05/07/2014 at 3:33 am #290526
Yep. Adding the a :hover css with color/underline changes helped highlight the title/link to single page. Just makes it more obvious for users mousing around the page that they can click to open another page. All good here.
