I’m seeing the above error because I’m using the shortcode on a custom post.
I’m using custom posts because the “User Directory” created via Connections is not public and may only be used by logged in members (I am using the excellent WP-Members plugin for this and other member-related restrictions.)
Hence I’ve no need to set it up on a page.
My questions are:
- Can you add support to list custom posts on the Settings-General-Home field?
- If not, can you add an option or setting to stop this error from appearing (subject to the above scenario)?
Finally, thanks for providing such an excellent plugin – I’ll be purchasing the Form and Link extensions soon.

Apologies for the late reply! I have added support for CPT posts in the drop down when selecting the directory home page. Would you like to try an advanced copy of the plugin to verify it works before I release it?04/06/2016 at 6:07 am #371803GregGuest
Yes I’d love to try out the modified version.

Great! Here’s a download link.
Let me know how it goes.

I’ve tested the modified version and it works just fine.
It found my CPTs and their children etc. and I was able to select the correct CPT where I use the connections shortcode.
It (quite correctly) listed all of the CPTs that it found. However, this included some CPTs that had been created by other plugins (e.g. Advanced Custom Fields; Contact Form 7, FooGallery etc.) that define CPTs as part and parcel of their respective solution.
So for those that want to use your excellent plugin with CPTs, it might be an idea to warn them about these “unexpected” CPTs being listed in the selection field for Home / Page on Settings. Just a thought.
Thanks for such a swift solution – I look forward to seeing the official release.

I made a tweak which should hide some of these CPT’s that are not intended to be public. Hit the same download link to get the newest revision. Let me know if it reduces the CTP’s shown without actually hiding the one you need. Thanks!04/11/2016 at 3:11 pm #372373
FYI, the released version will have a new option under the Advanced settings tab to enable CPT support. You will also be able to define which CPT/s to enable support for. These options will affect the options available in the directory home page setting. This help, if not eliminate, the “unexpected” CPT/s from being listed.
Enabling CPT support does more than change which options are displayed in the directory home page drop down, it will also add the necessary rewrite rules in order to properly support CTP/s — I hope.04/13/2016 at 3:29 pm #372550
To others who may read this, the release of version 8.5.14 contains support for CPT’s.
