Loving the Connections Pro stuff so far! I’ve just become slightly stuck.
When I first installed Connections Pro and just used the default individual templates, the profile pages looked more like a blog post style, with the profile info embedded into the page.
When I installed Circles, the formatting for the profiles has been stripped right back and I don’t know how to make it look in line with the rest of the website.
I thought it would look similar to the showcase examples in that respect:
I’m 99% sure I’ve stuffed something up, but I’m hoping your wiser eyes can spot what it might be!

Helpful if I showed you the website, right?05/02/2016 at 1:19 pm #374976
My guess is that the theme uses shortcodes to do custom page layouts. Doe this theme have a visual editor of any kind? If it does, I might have to add this theme to a theme compatibility exclusion in Connections so on the profile file pages it does not strip all other shortcodes from the page content. Connections does this to prevent duplicate entries to be shown if the user put the shortcode on the page multiple times.
If you can give me a temp admin account, I’ll login and manually make the change to see if this helps or not. The login details can be posted here as a private reply.05/03/2016 at 9:53 am #375081This reply has been marked as private.05/03/2016 at 10:53 am #375090
I added your theme to the exclusion list and that fixed it. Looks like I’ll have to come up with a different method to prevent duplicate entry content when the
[connections]shortcode is used on the same page more than once. Keeping an exclusion list just is not going to be scalable or maintainable.
Hope this helps!05/03/2016 at 6:32 pm #375106
Awesome that’s so great! Thank you so much Steven :-)05/03/2016 at 6:36 pm #375108
I wasn’t sure if I should ask this in a new thread but I was wondering if it’s possible for me to set a different page type (?) for displaying individual profile pages?
I have the member directory previewed on our welcome page, but the individual pages don’t need all the “welcome” stuff repeated up top on the individual pages.
I hope this makes sense!

Yep, this is possible, see the home_id shortcode option.
Hope that helps!
