Loving gridder! Question: How to override gridder files in child theme?
I would love to mod a little more then the shortcodes let me.
I was able to do this fine with the default template, but gridder seems a little different?

RE: How to override gridder files in child theme?
Here’s the link to the dev doc for template override files.
RE: I was able to do this fine with the default template, but gridder seems a little different?
It does work the same, but since Gridder is more complex due to layout and styling, you might also have to edit the corresponding CSS file. When items within the grid, the default font-size is
0so white spaces that is auto applied in browsers do not break the layout, so, if you added something which is not account for in the default CSS the first thing to check is if the font-size and/or line-height are
0and if they are, set them to the desired values, for that item only.
Hope this helps!03/14/2019 at 2:20 pm #487021
Thanks for you reply.
I have tried all possible folder setups but cant get the childtheme version to show. I added some xxx in front of the first div to see if i can get it to work but it doesnt show.
What is the structure and which files go into which folder in the child theme?

This should be the file/folder:
So your path looks correct. You could always empty the
card.phpfile and have only
die();into it. Then, you know without a doubt that it loaded or not.03/15/2019 at 4:14 am #487054
got it! thanks for you help!!!03/15/2019 at 4:17 am #487055
oh and maybe you have a fast answer for me on the following:
Is it possible to have someone fill in a field or search based on their zipcode and find people nearby set by a certain distance, for instance 25 miles or so.
Maybe someone else has had this request.
As I have it set now people can search on a postcode but it needs to be exact or else no results logically are returned.

There is a beta addon for Connections which I offer, on request, to those who purchased the Pro Pack.
I freely give it as a free addon in the bundled price. The reason it is not officially part of the bundle is because I still consider it a beta product. With the release of WP5, my goal for this year is to build it as a block which can be used and configured in the new editor.
You can see it in action on this third part site:
I consider this beta software, though safe to run on live sites. It can be difficult to configure due to the complicate shortcode structure to configure the multiple category setup. If you are familiar with shortcodes it should not be too difficult. They styling is as is, though I can give you CSS to apply you own color (instead of blue).03/15/2019 at 10:43 am #487087This reply has been marked as private.03/19/2019 at 5:15 am #487394
How can I give it a try?
Thomas03/19/2019 at 11:59 am #487455
Sorry! I could have sworn I replied to you last question. My apologies!
The advanced search addon is available, on request, to those who have purchased the Extension Pro Pack or the Pro Pack.03/19/2019 at 1:26 pm #487461
Ok so please send me a link to what I need to purchase so I can do this.
I am working on this site and they already had connections from way back… wasnt me.
So please let me know how to get this done.
Thomas03/19/2019 at 2:35 pm #487472
Here’s the link to the page which has both the Extension Pro Pack or the Pro Pack links.03/19/2019 at 2:39 pm #487475
Ok hereby purchased, any chance on refund for the previously purchased templates?
Please let me know how to setup the zipcode search.

RE: Ok hereby purchased, any chance on refund for the previously purchased templates?
I’ve already processed it. You should update the Gridder License key to the new one since the old is now invalid.
RE: Please let me know how to setup the zipcode search.
I’ve sent an email with download link and shortcode instructions. Let me know if you do not receive it.03/25/2019 at 6:28 am #487922
Worked out fine.
A few questions:
1) How do I change the placeholder text for the name or keyword search input?
2) How do I change the word Location: after a search is made in the info box
3) Is there a way to disable the autocomplete or input field history. It is blocking the input result below the input.See screenshot attached.
4) I have another purchase that I believe should be refunded: #484582

This instructions covered in the change labels doc should work:
RE: How do I change the word Location: after a search is made in the info box
The same instructions for the change labels doc should also work for this. Since the text does have a variable portion, you need to use this for the
RE: Is there a way to disable the autocomplete or input field history. It is blocking the input result below the input.See screenshot attached.
This must be specific to you browser as I am not able to replicate it. Which browser and version are you using? A quick web search reveals that there is no real way to force the disable of autocomplete if the browser is “helping” you. Supposed to be a feature, not a bug :/
RE: I have another purchase that I believe should be refunded: #484582
The refund has been processed and it should be available immediately in your account.
Hope this helps!03/25/2019 at 11:46 am #487961
