    Another plugin I almost forgot ‘Event Post by Bastien Ho’ Version 5.0.1 also has mapping ability, however I think it uses something else (open street map) other than google. Again I tried disabling this plugin as well to no avail.

    I realize that you are going to mention the ‘Link’ extension, however I need a more direct solution (like being able to change the owner in the manager). Not all listings have an email and some have a different (public) email than the one used by the user’s login email.

    Will custom fields and metabox API work throughout Connections (ex: the back-end) or just the Form extension? Also will these ‘custom fields’ be something that can be set-up within WordPress back end, or will each field would have to be ‘coded’ into a plug-in/extension as an add-on?

    If it does work throughout and can set fields within WP back-end then adding any other fields to core is mute. However if it can’t, then adding at least one non-RTE text only text box (not necessarily a Keywords/Tags box) that can be ‘relabelled’ and used like the others should be added to core.

    BTW: I assume because the custom fields and metabox API is being developed, the extra ‘Categories Group’ idea is also likely going to have to be done using this custom fields and metabox API. I’m I correct on this assumption?

    Well Instead of trying to convert ‘Notes’ into something else (as it seems really painful to remove RTE from it), why don’t you make a new permanent text only field called ‘Keywords’ or ‘Tags’ to your Connections plug-in. This would improve site search results.

    Also whenever Connections displays a single listing it can include the Keywords/Tags in the page meta-data ‘Keywords’. This would greatly improve search results for the search engines.

    Re: “Sorry, there isn’t a way to make the note field in the admin text only … you would have to rewrite this section of code. No filters or snippets can accomplish this”.

    I guess that I will have to live with that for now as I have no idea how to do that. I am not a programmer nor do I pretend to be one. I do my best to fumble my way through without compromising or breaking stuff. If you have a replacement code for that segment that I can get from you, I am willing to do that.

    Re: “Yes, the code edit to Form to remove the rte is temporary”.

    That is great news. The rte_notes and rte_bio option will apply throughout Connections plug-in (including the back end)?

    Sorry for making all this work for you, I have purchased web software and/or plug-ins in the past for a lot more money and did not get half of what you are providing in support. Keep up the good work! :)

    Re: rte

    Almost forgot, I need a temporary fix for ‘Notes’ in the back-end edit/add form as well.

    Re: remove dates didn’t work

    Yes I did revert to using the non-dev version of Connections. I want to be running the stable release on my live site.

    I did make the changes in code-snippet and still not working.

    re: rte

    That code edit did work. This is only a temporary fix, Right?

    Again thanks for the quick reply, your time and efforts in helping me.

    Re: adding settings to configure the entry types

    I understand your position on this, just surprised that users would not want this option without having to ‘hack’ the plug-in.

    I assume the additional code-snippet goes at the beginning of the existing code-snippet?

    Re: switching off RTE (all or nothing)

    Making only the Notes a text only box – for now is there a filter/code-snippet for this issue?

    Thanks for the quick reply, your efforts in helping me to customise your plug-in again is greatly appreciated.

    So you are saying that ‘Form’ will have this ability when teamed up with ‘Link’ in the next release? If so looking forward to the next release! (hopefully soon.)

    Re: switching off RTE (all or nothing)

    Hmm, I guess we can’t have our cake and and eat it too? Fixing this to work for Notes and Bio separately should be a feature to insert into the next release as well (ex: rte_notes=’false’ and rte_bio=’false’). Doing this little thing would make your pug-in way more versatile for myself and others.

    Re: Customizing user’s ‘Your Directory Entry’ form itself.

    I will give your mods a try, However it might be a good idea to add ‘Default Type’ selection somewhere in the Connections->Settings and maybe check boxes for which types to enable/disable for the next release. Again this feature would make your pug-in even more versatile for more of your customers.

    I tried the ‘code-snippets’ instructions for ‘Remove Dates Metabox from Link’ and it did not remove the Dates Metabox. The ‘Remove Individual and Family entry types’ did work, without the hard-coding part it showed only ‘Organization’ in the publish box (not selected) and the ‘Individual’ form format was still displayed. With the hard coding part done it showed only ‘Organization’ in the publish box (selected) and the proper ‘Organization’ form format was displayed.

    After (and if you apply all) the above tweaks and my ‘more than one Categories group’ idea (mentioned in a different post) I think that your Connections Plug-in would be just about perfect for myself and all your other clients!
