Here’s My solution:
As soon as I get the text in the descriptions done I will change the menu item on top that says “Links” to “Our Partners” and link to the above, so the default is category 22.
For the boxes on the right, I was able to get the description from your example but I could not figure out how to get it from a category other than the current one, so I ended up querying the database and using a LEFT JOIN, the title and description are controlled in Connections admin, Categories. for the links I just added the ?cn-cat=[category number] to the links. It’s working perfectly so far.
I had trouble with the title being too long for my design, I just wanted the category name, not the page title. I could not figure out how to do it using your code so I just changed
‘echo substr(get_the_title($ID), 0, -20);’
If there was an easier way I’m curious.
PHP = Some days I’m a Rock Star and some days I’m a Village Idiot, this morning I’m a rock star, but the day’s not over.
Thank you, I think I can work with this.
Here’s how I’m using your plug in in another part of our site:
Since your notes and bio fields allow shortcode I was able to easily include a history of performances in the venue contacts (using a plugin called GigPress). Check out this one:
Thank you again for a great plug in!
Yes, that would explain it, I will test when I get back to my home computer. thank you!
Yes, you may have admin access. I will send private reply
Yes, the first several have a logo which shows when I use the cMap template. I have the “ALL” template cMap, but I plan to get one of the excerpt templates and use it for ALL and the cMap for singles. I was trying to edit the default card template when I discovered the image would not work.
Before I installed all my premium add ons and the updated cMap I made the templates on this page http://jhcband.org/events and the images worked as expected (I did not want images on this page)
For the home_id=681, I want the link “Go back to directory.” to go back to the page it came from, instead it goes to specified Connections Homepage (http://jhcband.org/member-resources/business-contacts/). I had tried the home_id=681 yesterday and it did not work, this morning I added double quotes and it worked for a while then stopped working while I was dinking with the widget.
I removed the widget completely and it still would not work.
I deactivated the ‘Use Google Libraries’ I had installed it when I was having problems with this page http://jhcband.org/member-resources/music-library when logged in as a board member the music budget is embedded from Google drive was giving me grief.
I was going to try to have the widget open in that page but I think I’m going to try a different approach and put the widget in my hat for another day.
If you looked at the page while I’m working on it this morning it’s not exactly as above. I’ll switch it back in a bit.
Off topic question, it the example correct on this page?
I’m trying to work in the home_id into my template page and the text page, and can’t seem to get it correct. However in PHP I sometimes over think things.
