I’ve downloaded and activated the widget pack, but I can’t figure out any way to actually insert the search function into a page (in the same way that the short code [connections] inserts the directory into a page). So, I can’t use the search function at all. Help?
[disclaimer: I’m pretty new at all this, as you can tell]
The Search Widget, as well as the other widgets, can be found on the Appearance : Widgets admin menu. All of the Connections Widgets have “Connections” in their name. Just drag the Search Widget over to one of your sidebars.
I hope that helps!
Thanks for this! I’d assumed that because it shows up in the “plugins” category, it would function directly as a plugin. But is there any way to insert the Search widget into just one page? Especially Search by Category – I really don’t want the whole list of categories on my main page sidebar, but I need it available in my Directory subpage.
I have the same question…would love to be able to display categories at the top of my main directory page, and only include certain parent categories. Is this currently possible?
Not presently, but this is on my to do list to come up and release a solution for those looking for this type of functionality.
Just checking. Was this functionality ever added? Our directory is on a password (members only) page, so we need the search functionality only there.
You could use a plugin such as Widget Logic, Widget Context or Restrict Widgets to limit which pages a widget would be displayed on. That’s how I would suggest you handle your specific requirement.
Hope that helps!
