I am testing your plugin and almost cover all what I need for my site.
I need some other things but had seen that are cover with a premium template.
But before I buy it have to solve one critical point:
It is regarding the entrie layout. I am seing that the entry is displayed with the layout of the page where the shortcode is placed.
For example, if I have a listing wich location is Madrid, I can create two pages,one for his country (and I put the shortcode with the country filter) and another for the city (and I put the shortcode for the city).
Until now all working perfectly.
But now I put some custom hmtl for each page, for example in Spain I place an entries counter, and other different custom html for Madrid page.
Well my problem now is that if a visitor click on an entry link from Spain page, in the entry page will show the html from Spain page. And the same if click on the same entry link from Madrid page but now will show the custom html from Madrid page.
I need to know if there is an option to manage this and not to show the html from the results page.

Create a new page. The name is not important but should be relevant. Let’s call the page “Business”. In the “Business” page content, add the
[connections]shortcode with no options. After you save the page. Look in the browser’s address bar. Note the post ID that WordPress assigns the page.
Now, edit the original page and add the home_id shortcode option to the shortcode. Setting the value to the new “Business” page post ID.
I took a deeper look at your site and I see you’ve split up the directory across many pages. You’ll want to alter each of those other pages accordingly adding the home_id option setting its value to the “Business” page. Your site reminds me of this site:
The Taste, Play, Stay pages are all mostly powered by Connections. This site makes use of a free custom plugin which can be used to set each individual entry directory home page:
It could be worthwhile for you to install this addon and edit each entry, setting the directory home page to the correct page on your site. I realize this will be extra work, but with your setup, I think it will be worthwhile.
Hope this helps!03/23/2018 at 12:43 pm #456534DANIEL GARCIAGuest
Thanks a lot Steven, it works perfectly.
I dont think will need the plugin, I have to set up the shortcode evertyme I do a page for each location, I only need to add the home_id, not too much extra work.
Awesome support, thanks again
