Right. If there’s a better way to do that, I’m glad to do it.
To tell the truth, I’m not sure I’ve ever used anything but the text widget. Until you said that, I’m not even sure I realized there was a connections widget made by you. Or I knew it at one time and forgot it. (So that’s embarrassing!)
Thanks for checking it out. I’m just using a text widget with the shortcode in it. (Right now it’s manually listing by ID # as a work-around.)
[connections id='2047,2046,2045' order_by="id|SPECIFIED' enable_category_select=false enable_pagination=true page_limit=3 pagination_position=false enable_search=false show_alphaindex=FALSE show_alphahead=FALSE address_types=false link_types=false email_types=false enable_map=false]
(I think I tried it with Custom HTML, too.)
Okay, thank you. Well, for now I’ve just grabbed the most recently added entries and using shortcode to display them. I assume all new entry IDs will be added in numerical order? So for example, if the last 3 items are 87, 88, and 89, the next three entries will be 90, 91, 92? If that’s the case, at least it will be easy to swap out the ID numbers as new members are added to the list.
Thanks, I appreciate your reply. One thing occurred to me – would it maybe be possible to use “Custom Category Order” in some way? If I created a category for each letter, could I use that to sort all listings A-Z — then remove the “Custom Entry Order” so that the widget displays properly? Or can I combine those two extensions in some way you can think of that might accomplish the same thing?
Never mind. I found this about 2 minutes after posting! Thank you.
Thank you! I’ll probably end up doing this. I’d love the ability to search on specific fields as a future feature. But this is still a great plug-in. Thanks for the response.
