Hi, Is it possible to instead of having Telephone Number and Email on the little drop down panel (on the left side) having it show other information? ie. website and location?
If this isn’t possible is there a way to either remove the formatting of the space for this information on the left of the box and just have bio? or remove the dropdown panel all together and just have the bio picture go straight to profile?

Apologies for the delay in my reply! I received it after hours on Friday and I took Monday off with the family.
The only way to change the content of the Gridder contact panel would be to actually edit the PHP and CSS of Gridder in order to display what you need. In order accomplish this you would need a fairly good grasp of both. If you do, let me know and I can provide some guidance.01/22/2019 at 9:46 am #482347Lisa WilliamsParticipant
Hey No problem, Yes please send where I should look and how to edit and I will give it a go.
Also I tired to change the title of the fields ie. Work Phone could that be changed to ‘Website’? but the [connections str_work_email='Website'] work round didn’t work any ideas? It’s not ideal but it would work quickly for what we need
Thanks for your help01/22/2019 at 11:44 am #482358Steven ZahmKeymaster
In Gridder, this option would only affect the profile page display, not the list tile since the labels are committed, displaying only the email address.
RE: edit template
The file you need to edit is:
The section of code to edit are between lines
To add the display of websites, use:
if ( $atts['show_links'] ) $entry->getLinkBlock( array( 'format' => $atts['link_format'], 'type' => $atts['link_types'] ) );
To add the display of addresses, use:
if ( $atts['show_addresses'] ) $entry->getAddressBlock( array( 'format' => $atts['addr_format'] , 'type' => $atts['address_types'] ) );
Remove the lines that yo do not wish to display.
Due to the way Gridder renders its panel, the default font size is set to
0. So, you might no be able to see addresses or links until you adjust the CSS to the desired font size. use your browser CSS inspector for the class selector you should target.
To ensure any changes you make are not lost when updating Gridder, please read these developer tutorials on how to make the changes update safe:
Hope this helps!
