Steven, can you remind me if there is a way to get rid of the Gridder behavior that opens the profile excerpt and simply go directly to the profile?
All three of my Connections Pro clients have asked this at one time or another and it has been brought up yet again. The extra clicking to view a profile appears to be getting negative feedback, especially on mobile devices.
Visitors have been complained the “view profile” link is off screen on mobile and they end up touching the photo again and it simply closes, causing frustration.
The contention of the client is that if visitors touch/click the photo the expect to go the profile immediately.
Without an option for a simpler grid, one client is clearly pushing to move away from Connections Pro.
Update your client to Gridder version 1.2. Add
enable_panel=false to the existing shortcode and save the changes. Using this option set to false removes the slide open panel. And, the image itself becomes the direct link to the entry profile page.
Hope this helps. Let me know!
