I’m having an issue after the most recent update. If you look here http://www.aapda.org/directory/cat/georgia/ you’ll see that half of the entries are now showing blank fields where a website used to be shown. I’m not sure what happened, but if I go in and edit the entries and then save, it shows up again.
Would really love to find a way to fix this without me having to go in and edit ALL these entries on my site.05/08/2018 at 11:04 am #461663
Connections has been undergoing a massive rewrite for the past 6 months. These updates have been released incrementally as the work is completed in a section before moving on to the next. That way if any regressions did slip thru testing the regression could be found and fix very quickly. Thankfully, such occurrences have been very rare especially considering the amount of code being changed.
Gotta modernize ;)
The last couple updates have been focussed on the links. Still an update or two before they are completely reworked.
I have not seen this behavior and it is puzzling. So, the link does not show, but when you edit the entry it does? And you only have to save it with no changes in order for it to be displayed? Is that correct?05/08/2018 at 11:14 am #461669
Correct, for the most part.
Some entries have the url inside correctly and when you save with no changes, it shows up.
Some entries have removed the url from the display section, but it still shows inside the url field. When pasted into the display line and saved, it then shows as well.
This is a pain as I have hundreds of entries in all 50 states. This is going to take quite a while to flush out and solve.05/08/2018 at 11:35 am #461699
I would actually recommend against manually correcting. The changes made are supposed to be transparent/backward compatible.
At first glance it appears you might have customized the template / changed it code? Have you? If that is the case, perhaps the altered code is not compatible.
Please reply back as a private reply with a temp WP admin login and a FTP login so I can take a closer look.05/08/2018 at 11:57 am #461703This reply has been marked as private.05/08/2018 at 12:23 pm #461705
I still need an FTP login…
After a quick look in the admin, the Connections : Manage admin page. For every entry in Georgia which is not displaying the website, it does when you both expand the entry and edit the entry. These two locations utilize both the core supported means in order to display links.
At this point, I suspect the code in you custom template. Something I can look at when I get the FTP login.05/08/2018 at 12:59 pm #461713This reply has been marked as private.05/08/2018 at 1:00 pm #461714
Sent the ftp info. Please keep in mind, we have a VERY specific layout that needs to be maintained on these listings. I worked with you on customization some time ago to get it just right.05/08/2018 at 3:01 pm #461723
Ok, the issue should be resolved now. Looks like I needed to add just one more small backward compatibility shim to the code.
Apologies for the trouble.05/08/2018 at 3:07 pm #461726
