Hello. I recently installed this plugin and am liking it very much. I have one question.
How do I display some type of search functionality on the directory page?
My ‘members’ page currently has this shortcode: [connections show_alphahead='true']
I would like to be able to search by first name, last name, department, etc, etc
Is this possible? If so, how?
Thanks!03/25/2019 at 9:21 am #487947Steven ZahmKeymaster
RE: How do I display some type of search functionality on the directory page?
All of the premium templates includes a keyword search field which will search those fields. They also include a category search filter.
Hope this helps! Let me know.
ps. Some templates have the search features disabled by default due to their design focus being small teams. Search can be enabled on these templates.03/25/2019 at 1:14 pm #487981JoeGuest
Ok, I can buy a template. Just a couple more questions before I buy your plugin.
I plan on using this as a directory of our membership.
- Is it possible to rename or add custom fields to match our needs?
- Is it possible to import a CSV file of our existing members?
I think that’s all for now – Thanks for the quick response!
