Hi, I am having trouble displaying “Dates” on my cMap template. No if I use a shortcode for anniversary or not, nothing shows in the page. Also, I was wondering if there is a way I can add “Deadline” to the list of options in the dropdown menu.01/06/2013 at 10:17 am #248650Steven ZahmKeymaster
Currently the only “Dates” supported by cMap are the anniversary and birthday dates. If those are not showing it could be a typo in the shortcode. Here’s a link to a QuickTip, Working with Shortcodes, that could help.
If you need other date types to show, and you’re comfortable with making a minor edit to the template PHP file, I can provide you direction on how to do that.
Similarly, adding “Deadline” to the list of choices you will need to make a edit to a core Connections file.01/06/2013 at 3:18 pm #248664
Neither birthday or anniversary are showing on the cMAP with or without the shortcode. All the other entries including “Messenger” and “Social Media” work without editing the shortcode, “Dates” does not. Thanks.01/15/2013 at 12:05 pm #249129
I would like to edit the template php file to add the above capabilities. Could you provide me with directions on how to do that. As well to the core connections file.

Open the template.php file found here:
Change lines 27 and 28 from this:
Save and upload overwriting the original version.
To add the Deadline option to the dates, open the class.options.php file found here:
Search for the getDateOptions() method, it’ll be towards the bottom. It’ll make sense on what to add when you see the rest of the date option.01/15/2013 at 1:31 pm #249138
Thank you so much! Fixed my problem
