I would like a Form to display in the Sidebar to capture user data entry (I want my site to be self service as much as possible)
I’ve tried lots of different variations of your example code but I can’t get what I want. The data entry I would like to see is:
I want all entries to be ‘Organization’ (no Individual)
* Contact Full Name
* Organisation Name (should be ‘Shop Name’)
* Photo upload
* Logo upload
* Business Street Address
* Business Town (default to “Stroud”)
* Business Post Code (zip)
* Business Phone
* Mobile Phone
* Business Email
* Link (should be ‘Web page’)
* Notes only
and the code I tried is:
[connections_form default_type='organization' select_type='false' str_contact_name='Business Contact Information Category='True' photo='true' logo='true' address=’TRUE’ phone=’TRUE’ email=’TRUE’ link=’TRUE’ notes=’TRUE’ bio='False' Social='false' Messenger=’FALSE’ ], but this only shows the company details, Image/Logo select and Category.
(This code gives me :
Contact First Name:
Contact Last Name:

Is my code above miles out ?03/19/2013 at 8:49 am #254527
I just answered this in your other forum post. Multiple posts aren’t necessary … it actually just makes it take longer for me to reply because these more to jump back and forth to reference to make sure I’m answering your question accurately and completely.
Here’s copy of my answer to the other post…
I’ve looked at the shortcode you’re using, just a few typos, I’ve corrected them below. Since it is long, you’ll have to triple click on it it, then you can copy the whole thing.
[connections_form default_type='organization' select_type='false' str_contact_name='Business Contact Information' category='true' photo='true' logo='true' address='TRUE' phone='TRUE' email='TRUE' link='TRUE' notes='TRUE' bio='false' social='false' messenger='FALSE']
Other than a few small typos, it looks like your shortcode is spot on for the info you want to capture.
I just took a look at your site. It looks like you have it mostly there. Correcting the shortcode should got it to default to an Organization and change “Entry Name” to “Business Contact Information”.03/20/2013 at 4:01 am #254632rogGuest
I wouldn’t have sent a new request if it wasn’t different :-)
The first post was about how to view the form at all
This post was about how to display the fields I want
It’s not really resolved – I cannot understand how to get the code right for what I want
I’ve gone over and over changing this and changing that and it won’t display how I’d like it to. I’m not technical so this is really frustrating after paying out so much money03/20/2013 at 8:37 pm #254678
Ok, fair enough… I just visited your site again … there’s some weird stuff going on there. Looks like you’re having issues with several plugins???
The shortcode I gave you should give you what you want:
- Default to “Organization”
- Remove the option for the user to choose “Individual”.
- Change “Entry Name” to “Shop Name”
- When the try type is “Organization”, the Contact Name is already shown.
Did I miss something? If so I can try to better clarify is I am missing something. Just let me know.03/21/2013 at 2:31 am #254691Roger BoweringGuest
Thanks for getting back to me.
Yes, two problems at the same time is a pain. I had the new site developed how I liked it (including most of the Local Shopping page with your plugins), but then when the hosting company migrated it to ‘live’ something screwy happened, presumable because of the Theme plugin. So they took the last back up they had of Dev – which coincides with when I’d f****ed up the shortcode whilst playing around with Connections. And now I can’t get at the site til they’ve fixed whatever they’re doing. THEN I can try out the stuff you’ve sent me. Oh, frustration!03/21/2013 at 8:43 am #254699
Sorry for your troubles, please let me know when they have managed to fix you up. I’ll keep this issue open.
