I would like to show the city name for each entry in addition to their name on the landing page for the template (https://mlp.org/more-light-churches/). I’ve followed your steps in previous forums (https://connections-pro.com/support/topic/city-visible-on-excerpt-listing/) and created new code with code snippets plug-in, then created a new template and added it to my theme’s folder. I think the issue may be that I added the new template to the wrong place, but any input would be welcome.
Also, is there a way to change “Select Category” to “Search by State” on the landing page? I found it on the duplicated card.php file and changed it, but it didn’t change (which, again, makes me think the issue on my end was with putting the new template in the wrong place).
Thanks in advance!07/09/2018 at 12:50 pm #467121
Does the city code snippet work as expected? Meaning, is a new field present when you add/edit an entry? If it is present, is the city saved correctly?
What is the exact path of your override
card.phpfile?07/09/2018 at 1:36 pm #467122
No, a new field doesn’t appear. path is /wp-content/theme/parent-theme/connections_templates_circled/card.php07/10/2018 at 11:48 am #467186
RE: No, a new field doesn’t appear
Ok, if a new field does not appear, then code in your snippet is wrong. In thurn this means the code in template override file is not going to work.
You need to review the code snippet which adds that city field to make sure it is correct. If you copy pasted it. Maybe the was a copy/paste error. Try copying the code again into the snippet.
RE: path is /wp-content/theme/parent-theme/connections_templates_circled/card.php
That would be incorrect, the path needs to be:

The PDF is a little hard to read the code but it looks fine. This code is added as a snippet using the Code Snippet plugin, correct? And, that snippet is activate, correct?
Just in case… this code does not get added to the
card.phpfile for the template.07/11/2018 at 2:44 pm #467282
Correct, the snippet is activated. I should see the new field when adding a new organization to connections, correct?07/12/2018 at 11:39 am #467388
Yes you should. Generally when you add a new custom field metabox it will be at the very bottom (unless moved manually to a new position).
