I am using the Bio Entry Card template on my site and only the first 100 entries are showing up in my directory (http://plasticspioneers.org/newsite/members/member-directory/)… how do I get the remaining 77 to display?
Thanks!05/05/2014 at 12:22 pm #290318
Are all entries set as “Public”?
What is the exact shortcode you are using?
Are you using any type of caching server side or by using a plugin? If you are, ensure you flush the cache.
fyi, that page could suffer from very poor load times showing that many entries on a single page.05/05/2014 at 12:27 pm #290320CaseyGuest
All entires show up in my admin area under Manage… they just don’t display on my website.05/05/2014 at 12:29 pm #290321CaseyGuest
It was the “public” issue – thanks!
Regarding the slow loading issue – how do I have the entries paginate?
Thanks for your quick response!

You need to purchase one of the template which support pagination such as cMap, Market, Excerpt Plus, Slim Plus or Tile Plus.
I hope that helps!05/05/2014 at 1:59 pm #290333CaseyGuest
My data will port over smoothly to all of those? Which is the one that is closest to my current layout?
Thanks!05/05/2014 at 2:15 pm #290335
Templates for Connections are similar to themes for WordPress, they “simply” change the appearance that your data that is displayed, so there is nothing being ported. So the simple answer is, yes, your data will “port” over.
None are really the closest … maybe the cMap template, the gradient can be turned off. So can the logo. The bio details would actually be shown in the bio content tray … the user would have to click the link for the info to be shown in a slide down effect. The link names can easily be changed to be applicable.
Another possibility, since you are not showing any images, is the Slim Plus template. The image can be turned off and it defaults to 20 entries per page. A user would have to click the entry name to reveal the details. Not sure how important being presented without any user interaction is to you but it would provide a nice clean look that would fit nicely with your theme.
Hope that helps!05/05/2014 at 2:21 pm #290336CaseyGuest
Cool – I like the Slim Plus and will present to my clients.

- My 3 most recent entries are not displaying. They are set to public, they are approved, I entered them myself. Also,
- The program is suddenly forcing me to display a last name for each entry which I would prefer not to do.
Can you help?11/15/2014 at 2:08 pm #310119
re: My 3 most recent entries are not displaying. They are set to public, they are approved, I entered them myself.
Are you using any type of caching plugin? What is the exact shortcode you are using to display your directory?
re: The program is suddenly forcing me to display a last name for each entry which I would prefer not to do.
In Connections > 8.1 the last name is now required … actually it has always been required, just not enforced, but now it is necessary because Connections uses the names to create the folders which the entries images are saved in. All the premium templates sold here has a
name_formatshortcode option which can be used to remove the last name from display. Are you using any of these templates?
