Is it possible that when the page [connections] loads do not show any entries untill the filter is used? perhaps use: show_show_all=’false’ ?
Also is it possible to filter results according to country type without making it a category? I tried using: filter=”country”, filter_country=”true”, nothing works.

Interestingly I just posted a detailed QuickTip on how to do just this yesterday.
This info been buried in the forum for awhile now and a few users are using it to their satisfaction. I hope this helps you too.

Sorry, no, something would have to be custom code for you.08/17/2015 at 5:32 pm #343252reyesParticipant
Where should this important piece of code be added after you generated the other code in code snippets?
Should it be at the bottom of the code generated in Code Snippets or on each directory page? Also, should you apply this code snippets to run everywhere on the the site?08/18/2015 at 9:39 am #343297
initial_results='true'option should be added to the page(s) where you have added the
[connections]shortcode. Put another way you add it to the existing instances of the shortcode, you do not add the shortcode again. Hope that makes sense?08/18/2015 at 12:29 pm #343312reyesParticipant
I understand. It should look something like this
[connections category='16,23,24,25,26,6,7,27,28' enable_category_by_root_parent=true, initial_results='true']
or this, separated by a comma, correct?
[connections str_bio_show='' str_note_show='More Details' str_note_head='', initial_results='true']
I’m not sure if the placement location of initial_results=’true’to the short code is correct on my pages.
Can I remove the code generated in Code Snippets later if I change my mind?

The shortcode should look like this:
[connections category='16,23,24,25,26,6,7,27,28' enable_category_by_root_parent='true' initial_results='true']
Shortcode options are always separated by a space, not comma separated.
re: Can I remove the code generated in Code Snippets later if I change my mind?
Yes, that is exactly the reason to use the Code Snippets plugin. Simply deactivating the snippet turns the code “off” and if you decide you do not want it no more, then delete the snippet. It’s safe that is why I recommend using it.
