We purchased the whole bundle of templates and addons.
trying to create something similar to what you have here:
Where the hyperlink for the map appears? Can you help?
Also on this same link you have the categories displaying in a drop down, we just seem to have an A-Z list, is there a short code or something to make this work?

I am assuming you install cMap as a plugin and activated it, right?
Does not sound like you activate the cMap template on the Connections : Templates admin page.05/09/2013 at 4:26 am #259345Colin YoungsonParticipant
Yes the cmap and the excerpt + are installed and activated.
Please see attached image.
Happy to send you login details if that helps.

All you need to do is go to the Connections : Templates admin page and activate the template you want to use. Doing this tell Connections which of the installed templates you want to use when showing the directory.05/09/2013 at 2:30 pm #259399colinGuest
Thanks again for response.
This is the effect I would like to create, with the drop down categories and also cmap – in place.
When activating the cmap it changes the appearance of the whole company section, and displays the whole map, not just link (this is not a problem).
When activating the Excerpt+ it removes all the contact info and only displays the main written sections, no map. When clicking the company name I expected to see the full profile with contact details etc, but it just seems to refresh on the page.
How do you configure the Excerpt+ to display the drop down list of categories, as well as the map?
I can display the list of categories in a widget.

Different templates provide different features and functionality with different visual styles; much like themes for WordPress. With that said, Excerpt Plus does not have a map and displays just the bio, but that can be tweaked.
You’ll have to activate cMap which has both the map and category drop down and when you click thru to a single entry displays the all the content for the entry unless you turn stuff off.
I hope that helps.05/17/2013 at 4:54 am #260165colinGuest
Noticed that the plugin does not display correctly in the latest version of IE10.
Reverting back is fine and other browsers are fine.
Will there be an update?

How it not working. It tests fine for me.
