Recently updated Connections (from earlier version) and installed the cMap template from new. I’m having seemingly unrelated problems,
– Keep getting 500 Internal Server Error issues, works ok with second click (started right away after upgrade)
– Random colons. When I used short codes to remove email/work phone labels, I get a random colon in front of email/phone but not address (str_work_addr=”” str_work_email=”” str_work_phone=””)
– Map doesn’t seem to display – not sure if I missed a setting ?
– Lastly , wanted to re-order fields – list website above social media icons – followed other threads and edited php template- pretty much a novice, but made a backup. Moved show links string above show social media – but didn’t re-order list?
I’ve attached screen capture as the directory is offline.
Thanks for the help!

First, I’m going to have to ask that you revert to cMap 3.0.2 as supplied.
The server 500 errors are unlikely to be caused by Connections or it’s templates. One item to check is the memory allocated to PHP. I recommend 128MB for a WordPress site.
The colons are not random, they are just not part of the label. The entire label and colon can be removed using different shortcode options. They are:
contact_name_format='%label%: %first% %last%' addr_format='%label% %line1% %line2% %line3% %city% %state% %zipcode% %country%' email_format='%label%%separator% %address%' phone_format='%label%%separator% %number%' link_format='%label%%separator% %title%' date_format='%label%%separator% %date%'
Just remove the the %label% and colon from the these and add them to your shortcode. Please note, these will only work with cMap 3.0 and newer.
Now, only after you’ve resolved the issues do I recommend tweaking the PHP files. Make sure you are overwriting the files and putting them in the correct folder. Trust me just about 100 percent of the time this is the reason. Followed closely by the user running a caching plugin. And if you are, purge the page cache and then deactivate the caching plugin.04/13/2013 at 7:01 pm #256963MarcieGuest
Thank you for the quick reply. I restored cMap template and used the new short codes – no problem.Went to Chrome and saw that google was not defined, no method. So I went to the Advanced tab on Settings and checked Google Maps API v3 – all set here too now.
Increased php memory to 128mb – so far so good !
Feeling confident, I tried to tweak template. I cleared cache, deactivated it. Then I made 2 changes to cMap.php (moving links above social media). but website still lists below icons… Am I missing something? Oh I did it in WP Editor so I wouldn’t worry about uploading it to wrong folder (but made backup). I can remove it, but can’t seem to reorder it.

$permittedAtts[‘show_social_media’] = TRUE;
$convert->toBoolean( $atts[‘show_email’] );
$convert->toBoolean( $atts[‘show_links’] );
$convert->toBoolean( $atts[‘show_im’] );
$convert->toBoolean( $atts[‘show_social_media’] );04/14/2013 at 8:52 am #256983Steven ZahmKeymaster
Great to hear the issues are resolved!
As for reodering…
Changing those lines, as you found out, will not have no effect. You need to edit the card.php and card-single.php files. I think it’ll make sense from there which lines of code you have to move around.
