I’m running Connections with a Slim Plus template and, without modifying anything lately other than adding a new Member to the directory, I’ve lost the connection to Connections.
Page at http://bhba.on.ca/member-directory/ to display directory shows
[connections enable_search=FALSE image_fallback=’none’ str_contact=’BHBA Rep’ enable_bio_head=FALSE str_work_addr=’Address’ str_bio_head=Profile color=’#408547′ page_limit=100 show_empty_categories=’false’]
Has something changed with the plugin recently that I’d missed?12/14/2015 at 12:20 pm #357943Steven ZahmKeymaster
Well, the first thing I see is you are using WP Super Cache. Perhaps the page was cached when Connections was not active. Try flushing the page cache.
The next item I see it that is appears that the shortcode has fancy quotes in it (see they have backtick/curl to them). The WP shortcode parser does not support these. WP 4.4 made more changes to the shortcode parser which perhaps prevents shortcodes from working when they contain fancy quotes.
This happened to a couple other users too. Rather than repeating, here are the links to where I explain the issue and how to fix it:
The short version, the shortcode should look like this:
[connections enable_search=FALSE image_fallback='none' str_contact='BHBA Rep' enable_bio_head=FALSE str_work_addr='Address' str_bio_head=Profile color='#408547' page_limit=100 show_empty_categories='false']
Hope that helps! Let me know!12/14/2015 at 3:05 pm #358039BParticipant
