I have my first website running with Connections and it works great. What I am finding though is that users who are adding their entries with the Form are clicking the Blue buttons when they complete a section and are confuded by the wording.
Example – they fill in the Address Field and click “Add Address” blue button which of course adds a new Address section but they are thinking they adding the current entry.
This creates all sorts of mistakes including extra map pins for the blank entries. We all know how to use the form as we work with it but your average John or Jane Doe appears to be quite non techy, and to be frank unable to follow instructions as I have provided them with a 10 page PDF manual on creating their entry.
Would it be worth considering a change of text on the blue buttons to “Add Another Address” Add Another Email etc?11/29/2018 at 8:49 am #478170Steven ZahmKeymaster
There are a couple ways you can deal with too.
Here’s a link to a tutorial which explains how to change label and text in Connections (and just about any other plugin). So you can change them to what works best for your users.
Another option, you can remove the repeatable fields all together. Navigate to the Connections : Settings admin page and click the Fieldset Config tab. Disable the repeatable option for each fieldset you are using. Important, make sure to increase the number of open by default from 0 to an number which makes sense for your install. I suggest making the number no larger than the active number of types available for the fieldset.
Example: For the address fieldset, disable the repeatable option. Enable only the address types you are using. Let’s say Home and Work only. You would then set the number of open by default to 2. Repeat for each repeatable fieldset.
I hope this is clear and is not confusing!11/29/2018 at 7:49 pm #478229twttsParticipant
I used the plugin and changed all the text – worked just fine but also good to know I can remove some repeatable fields if necessary. I did notice those field settings when I first started configuring the site but that seems like an eternity ago and I had forgotten about it!
