Maybe this is something that is already available and I am dumb, but I have looked around Connections trying to find a way to add a gallery to the Detail page for each person entered. i am using the plugin for a fighter roster at a boxing promoter.
If it isn’t available then this is a request. If I am overlooking something then please fill me in….12/10/2014 at 10:26 am #312397Steven ZahmKeymaster
At some point I want to develop and release a gallery extension for Connections but it will likely be a bit of time before I get to it. What can be done now … two things:
First, the bio and notes field support the HTML
imgtag. so you can add as many images as you want using those.
Second, the bio and notes fields also support shortcodes. You can use a gallery plugin which displays galleries via shortcodes.
Hope that helps!12/10/2014 at 10:38 am #312441Justin romanGuest
Thanks for the reply. I tried adding a short code but it wouldn’t stick. Can you recommend a gallery plugin I can use in the description?
Also, be very helpful if you developed changing the fields , or I want to add fighter stats, pro license, etc.12/10/2014 at 11:17 am #312463Steven ZahmKeymaster
The core WP shortcode to create galleries works just fine. Example:
A very quick way to generate the shortcode…
Add a new page, you do not need to save it.
Switch the post editor to the Text tab –> Important.
Click the Add Media button
Click the Create Gallery link.
Select the images you want in the gallery.
Click the Create a new gallery button.
Arrange the images in the order you want them to be displayed.
Click the Insert gallery button.
The shortcode will be inserted into the post editor. This can be pasted in the bio or notes field. Of course, you’ll need a template which supports showing the bio or notes field. A free on that comes with Connections is the Bio Entry card.
Connections does support custom fields, but there is no point and click way to add them. They need to be added via a plugin. Here are some examples of plugins that add custom fields (all are free):
Hope that helps.
