    Hi Steve,

    Must be a busy week. Can you let us know (at least) and ETA on a response for this ticket? We’d like to prove out the sorting process as soon as possible.

    Thank you,

    Patrick

    Hi Steve,

    We want to allow people to sort pre-established short-coded listing by Town. Would this same “custom field” option be the best approach?

    The screenshot has two items in a category list of jewelers — We’d like to sort this and other similar, short-coded category lists by Town.

    Thank you!

    Dear Steven,

    While I believe you have a great plugin, cross-referencing WP Post and Connections proprietary table data through a custom sql query would be really helpful.

    — Users don’t think they won’t find directories through WP searches.

    I understand this is the way you have written your plugin, but I just want to register that it would be terrific to not have relatively isolated data (in this world of elegant APIs…) or inside our own WP sites.

    Best

    Hi again Steven,

    Might I be able to rewrite the URL so each directory listing link point to a single directory entry?

    For example:

    http://www.visitor.com/stay/name/particular-inn-restaurant/
    go instead to:
    http://www.visitor.com/directories/name/particular-inn-restaurant/

    We would just have to rewrite the first subdirectory “stay/name” (etc.) portion.

    This would help us structure the pages more efficiently.

    Thanks!!

    Hi Steven,

    Can I give you access to the page, so you can see what it is we’re trying to do? I placed the home_id shortcode, but I believe our application/needs must be seen to remedy/make things work.

    Let me know, and I’ll send along the directory pass information via another channel.

    Thanks!!

    Thanks — but I must get this straight. (please forgive my lack of clarity.)

    Using the home_id shortcode option is the trick. using it, you can
    tell Connections that the links to point to a different page. The only
    requirement is that the target page must have the [connections]
    shortcode on it. I recommend using the shortcode with no other options
    set.

    A scenario might help:
    I need to click on a shortcode listing (Let’s call it “Stay”) and go to an individual entry (Let’s call it “Hotel 1”). Currently category shortcodes for accommodations are on “http://www.visitorsite.com/stay/”.

    Question: Am I setting up the home_id shortcode on the “…/stay” page? If so, and I follow the logic, each of the pages “accommodations”, “food and drink”, etc would have a “home_id” on it.

    If no, I’m sorry, I do not yet get the logic.

    If yes!, then all I need to do is identify the id for each of the established pages and place a “home_id” shortcode on each. Then, the individual entry will be its “own page”…

    Thanks again for all your help!!

    Steven,

    Our challenge is that we are using connections shortcodes on several pages. We are using connections as a directory for “accommodations”, “arts and culture”, “food and drink” and “things to do” – each with their own page. (We are creating a visitor site.)

    Each of our pages has shortcodes, often stacked in individual groupings to display featured category listings. So, there is no “directory” “home page”.

    I can give you a link to the pages, but it will be behind a directory privacy user/password, so I’ll have to share it with you in another manner.

    Thank you very much for all your attention!

    Patrick

    Hi Steven,

    I would like to modify my support request — make it simpler.

    Can I programmatically go from a cmap list on one page to the directory entry?

    I think my issue is the URL of the list is based on …/stay/name/… and the entry URL is based on …/directories/name/…

    Thanks,

    Patrick
