    OK it sounds like I just need to take a deep breath and stop panicking!

    It’s good to know that updates of the main plugin won’t affect the templates.

    Maybe I am wrong about the examples being misleading. Actually I like the fact that the enhancements of this plugin are offered separately, because so many plugins and themes get bloated because the developer lumps absolutely everything in together. However I do feel that you’ve got so many options, it gets quite dizzying going through them all and trying to work out which one to choose. A comparison table would be really helpful.

    Just some feedback. I like the Connections plugin and it’s obvious you do a good job and have a lot of happy customers, but as a newbie I’m totally bewildered by all the different options. I struggled to work out which template, and it now looks as if I chose the wrong one. I’m now scared to try another one, or buy any of the add-ons, because I may make the wrong choice again and waste more money.

    I think part of the problem is that some of the example sites are customised, not using the basic version of whatever plugin or extension, and that can lead people to misunderstand what each one does out of the box.

    Oh I see. So you’re saying that by default, the Excerpt Plus plugin only ever shows the biography section and never, ever shows any of the other details?

    It seems weird that anyone would ever find that useful.

    One more question – if I customise the template, does that mean I have to customise it again every time the Connections plugin is updated?

    this is possible using the MapPress Easy Google Maps plugin. I don’t know whether it would work with Connections but might be worth a try?

    No, why do you think it’s resolved?

    I’ve tried this two ways. I can set the main page to Excerpt Plus and the rest to a default profile. I don’t like that because the default profile is styled differently.

    If I try setting all my templates to Excerpt Plus, then the single pages do not show any detail whatsoever – they just show the excerpt.

    This is the front page:

    This is the single page:

    Update: I realise I hadn’t set the templates properly

    They are now ALL set to Excerpt Plus. Now when you go to the single page, all that shows is the same as the front page – none of the additional information.

    I can see there is a “single.php” in the Excerpt Plus code, which includes all the extra info. Any idea what’s happening? Or have I set something incorrectly?

    Just a note, I’ve found Jetpack plays badly with quite a lot of plugins and even themes. It’s also fairly bloated and slowed my site down a LOT. I’ve stopped using it for that reason.
